anyone try laser hair removal or such? I feel like the hair is the only thing I have control over with this disease. I don't shave because of course huge open wounds....but it would be nice to get it under control and get rid of the hair from the root.

      I actually work at a laser hair removal company. I have started treatments, and they seem to help for a while since some of this is affected my hair growth, but mine also flares when I'm stressed or when the temperature increases. The doctors who perform the treatments are really understanding, and they will either go around the inflamed area or reschedule for those areas.

      My derm told me your HS will get more inflamed when going through hair removal but you will have better long term relief from it
