I'm Katelyn a 24 yr old female. I have had HS for 10+ years now and haven't had any luck with getting my HS under control. Right now I have two bad/reoccurring flare ups under my arm and it's just really making it hard for me to do anything including sleep.
In 2011 I had an ovarian cyst that grew into a 12 lb benign tumor in my abdomen removed. I had 31 stables in my stomach and now have a pretty gnarley scar. Dealing with HS has changed my life. I now cherish every single day that I go pain free (that's a rarity).
I often get depressed about dealing with this. I've never had anyone to relate to what I am going through so I decided to reach out to a forum for help with anything that may have brought you some relief whether it be physically or emotionally.
I've seen countless doctors, dermatologist, and even HS specialists at ucla with no help. I've been on multiple antibiotics, prescribed creams, the whole 9 yards and nothing really seems to help. I don't really have any faith that the antibiotics will work and would rather stay pill free
Thank you if you even took the time to read this, and again ANY advise or testimonies would really help.
