I have HS for several years now. I primarily get them in my inner thigh, and the skin has become quite thin there so they usually spring up, cause a bit of excruitating pain for a few days and then relief, they burst and go.
I have one at the minute tho, and for the first time ever I have got one on my lady parks :O Its not only embarrassing and so painful. But I am really struggling with this one. I am finding it difficult to walk, change position when seated, going to the toilet is a total nightmare, and its waking me up at night. The pain is even right down the back of my thigh!
The painkillers aren't working.. I am taking nurofen and pandol and they are barely taking the edge of it. I find I get them in times of stress, but its stressing me out even more. I can't play with my daughter as I can't bend, walk or move.
They say wear loose clothing to help with the pain, but sorry I can't be going underwearless ... I don't have the body confidence to be waking around in the nude from the waist down.
Can someone please help, what can I do outside of what I am doing?
I have tried hot baths, hot water bottles, ice packs (more pleasant than it sounds - yes I am in that much pain), painkillers, I'm taking Dalacin and a multivitamin. Please advise, I will try anything to get this to go / burst?
