Hi could anyone share some tips on how to dress area that are difficult to do so(which are affected by your HS)? context: I'm afab and I have an affected area on my chest in between my breasts and the adhesive of bandaids gets worn down by the pus/drainage and probably sweat does this as well. It's been frustrating me. I'd appreciate any advice ☺️

      I haven't tried it for hs wounds but i did use menstrual pads (at my doctor's suggestion) for the leakage from my c section incision. There are disposable pads for lactating individuals. Maybe those or even a menstrual pad held in place with clothing and the glue on the back sticking to the clothing.

      That's a tough area 😥 I've had to use ace bandages before to keep stuff strapped down but depending on your chest size that might not work. I also have these clear patches that I got from the hospital. It's almost like a 2nd skin that sticks over the top of the dressing. Good luck hun
