I am a 23 year old female. I have suffered from HS since puberty (about 11). I get abscess under my arms, inner thighs, and sometimes my bum. I have literally tried EVERYTHING. So little is known about HS. I had doctors telling me to take bleach baths, lose weight, stop smoking, use this cream, wash with this. Blah blah blah. I did ALL OF THAT. I lost 80lbs. Have not touch a cig in a year. Long story short NOTHING worked. However, I started taking birth control about 6 months ago. I have had NO new abscess. I literally went from going to my derm. every few weeks to get cut; to nothing. I still have abscesses. But they are significantly better with no new ones. My derm. also perscribed me Humara. I start the injections next Tuesday. Just wanted to share in case it helps someone! I will let you guys know how Humara works with me. Don't feel like a alien. More people have HS than you would think. Cheers <3
