I am aged 56yrs and have had H.S for about 20+years. at the start i had my lymth modes and my sweat glands removed surgiclly[i cant spell] due to absesess under my arms.that was very succsessful.But i then had to have most of my breasts removed because of very deep rooted absesses in my breasts. Istill get problems in my breasts but not so much as before.The rest of my body is a disastar area,in my groin,top of my legs under my tummy and many other places,the smell sometimes is horrific but you have to live with it i thought i was alone but there is worse storys than me .You have to keep on smile ing and make this condition not important and put it behind in your thoughts.i wish all you H.S sufferess the best and hope any treatment you have is succsessful .

i am not sure what you mean. did you find that having your lymph glands and sweat glands stopped hs in your armpits?
would you recommend this surgery to others who are starting out with early symptoms of hs?
do you think that having these glands removed in that area may have just moved the problem elsewhere?

sorry for all the questions but my daughter may be in early stages of hs and i am trying to gather as much info to help her before the symptoms worsen. the tests i am asking about are because i keep coming across references to problems in these areas.
thank you for your reply, it did help. all information shared is valuable. i believe dermatologists are also reading so as well as informing each other the dermatologists are also learning!
dont worry about me being sickened. my ex husband is stage 3 and follows an extremely unhealthy lifestyle. i think you are great for posting your experiences and in doing so will help your self and others.
i believe in being pro active.
my daughter is worried about the possible genetic factor. i dont have hs but am information gathering as i have 3 children and also am worried about the genetic possibility.
my daughter has recently been told by her GP she dosent need to see a dermatologist as she only has ingrown hairs.
she is not going to shave/wax etc to see if that helps to reduce the inflammation of 'ingrowing hairs' but we are all aware of people who have been told they have ingrown hairs when they have early stage hs.
she has already had creams from the doctors to heal her ingrowing hairs. the inflammation is still there several months later. we are hoping no hair removal will stop the problem.
in the meantime i will keep reading up as cross referring from different sites may help some one.
i wish you well with your weight loss.
i have read several people saying that works for them too. it's great to find something that keeps the person in control.
seems to be that sweat aggravates the issue, wonder if theres something in the sweat?
we all know about sweat rash and how nasty that can be! i dont have hs but clothes rubbing in sweaty areas will cause a nasty rash.
there just seems to be so many questions with hs.
as long as money and time are ploughed into research the boffins will get to the borrom of this eventually.....hopefully not too far away!!
daughter has paid for laser hair removal so fingers crossed also trying turmeric and zinc. she is not too bad we are looking at prevention at this time. and reading up and cross referencing hs sites so that the boffins might read something that may start an investigation........from little acorns mighty oaks bloom.........wishing you well.
