Hi, I was diagnosed with hs a couple of years ago by the doctors after a few years of getting the courage to go and they just said I have hs and join a support group that was it and over the time I have struggled with dealing with it and I went again to see my doctors and the doctor I saw didn't even know what hs was and didn't get much help. I am wondering how do some of you cope with it and what you do to help?

Some people have found that talking to others with HS can be helpful as they can vent and relate to one another. Others have found relief from symptoms through various treatments such as Humira, spironolactone, birth control, and lifestyle changes like wearing compression shorts or loose clothing, using antiseptic washes, and minimizing sweat. It's also suggested to try an allergen elimination diet to see if any foods trigger flare-ups. However, what works can depend on the individual and may require some trial and error.
