So i have been suffering from HS for 5 years now. It comes and go especially when it's almost the time of the month then it'll be the worse!! I cant even wear any tops or dresses that i want cause this thing is smelly and it's big! it leaves dark marks on my armpits!! But still, i am clueless about it and just got to the know scientific name of it, of this disease. I need recommendations on what deodorant that is suitable for this condition? and how do you remove underarm hair, cause i know shaving is a no-no? is waxing okay for this conditon? are there any solutions to get rid of this? i saw some home remedies and tried coconut oil but it didnt work for me. Helppp!!

First off you need to start using a Chlorhexadine Gluconate solution 4% with 4% isopropyl alcohol. This can be found at pharmacies under the brand names hepacleanse, Stanhexadine, etc. These are usually died red and are a cleanser that you should use each time you shower, twice a day is good. You will notice that the area will no longer have the sensitive feeling and the boils will stop creating themselves under the skin surface.
For boils that are existing you need to use bactrobane, or mupirocin, as a topicle antibiotic. You may need to couple this with a oral antibiotic as well. Warm clothes a few times a day can help bring the boil to the surface as well. The boils must complete there cycle and drain. Tea tree oil on the warm cloth is also helpful. I find also that putting some isopropyl alcohal on a make-up pad and holding on the boil helps to reduce the inflammation a lot.
Now for boils that seem to come back or lumps that you can feel under the skin... you need to get these removed. A cyst or boil left untreated is a boil you will end up getting again.
I'm effected in a different area but I've heard people using scented panty liners on the armpits of the clothing I'm so sorry your suffering Huni x
There is no way I could use any other deodorant other than mineral salts (crystal) deodorant due to itching. Now I use Vanicream, available on Amazon, because it works a little better.
Have you seen a dermatologist yet? I have, and many of the symptoms you described went away, including 1. bad odor. 2. I shave. 3. I don't use any particular home remedies or diet, and my Derm. PA/MD have done everything they can to give me best medical advice, this is a clinic that does surgery for cancer as well as treatments like hair removal, so they IMHO have a strong relationship with women and their needs.
So bottom line: Vanicream, crystal deodorant. You didn't say itching but I had that so bad, I couldn't use anything!
