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 will pray for healing. I am also working with - liquid turmeric - add to water

    - organic sulphur supplement

    - lysine

    - biotin

    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.
