I've had HS for 13 years now, though I was just diagnosed formally in 2021. I've been struggling for a long time, so I haven't been able to receive treatment apart from the initial diagnosis. I guess.. I just want to hear about treatments that have helped people like me? I'm finally getting my footing and I want to start taking care of myself, and ultimately loving myself.

      I'm so glad you got a diagnosis! Have a name you can search up and do research on is something that provides you with agency. For a while they had me on antibiotics, but as my symptoms worsened, they decided to put me on Humira.

      Congratulations! Obviously having HS isn’t what we all wanted to hear but it’s so nice to have diagnoses. I started spironolactone and didn’t see immediate results but I saw slow improvement. Now I’ve been on it for years and I have no new tracts open up and the old ones only flare up occasionally. I also started birth control at the same time which I think also helped. Compression shorts will be your best friend and welcome to the wonderful world of HS!!
