I am a 39 year old man and I have been suffering from HS for 10 years now, but just got a diagnosis a few months ago due to both embarrassment and incorrect diagnosis. I am happy I found this page so I can get a little support. It started in one arm pit and quickly took the other one along with my groin.
I have a couple questions. What do you use to cover an oozing abscess? I know we shouldn't use anything that will stick to it, but everything else just falls off. I have an especially hard time with an abscess that is very close to my scrotum.
What do you do about the pain? I've been applying hot compresses, but that only marginally helps.
Thanks for you support

I made homemade pads w a container of hemorrhoids medicated pads, added T tree oil, Vit E oil, eucalyptus oil. I only got large round make cotton pads and nonstick bandage tapes. The hemorrhoid pads socked w above concoctions on the skin the cotton pad outside and tape. It is soothing and healing. I hope it helps you.
I'll give that a try thanks!
Ok so I got everything you mentioned and put it all together. However, the location of this abscess is giving me difficulty. It is partially on my scrotum. No matter how I try to wrap it, it either won't stay on or is even more uncomfortable. I tired around either leg and around the package but nothing is good... Any suggestions?
How about a thin sticky sanitary pad. Put the mix on the pad and use it in your underwear ?
Worth a shot. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks!
- organic sulphur supplement
If the pain is bad and you have insurance - see if your doctor will drain it and give your Cottizone shots for pain.
Wash with oxyclean or other antiseptic, sulphur soap. Ask doc for clindamycine - topical drying cream.
Last but not least believe - the power of mind and the healing power of the body.
