If you suffer from Hidradenitis Suppurativa here’s the tea to immeidate relief
Having Hidradenitis Suppurativa, a condition that causes small, painful lumps to form under the skin, is an everyday struggle. I feel insecure AF, I’m dealing with constant sharp shooting pain, the smell of a freshly popped sore reeks, and did I mention I’m super depressed? Having HS just isn’t the vibe. But over the years, with some research and trial and error, I’ve learned how to somewhat live with this shitty skin condition affordably. At the end of the day, I’m a material gworl so I’m not about to let HS completely ruin my life. These are my five HS must-haves.
I know this stuff is pricy, but it’s cheaper than laser hair removal, steroid shots, and Humara. I’ve personally found immediate relief when applying it to freshly open hidradenitis sores.
When you have hidradenitis suppurativa it’s really important to clean the infected areas to further prevent infection and discomfort. But when you have hidradenitis, you can’t just use any soap. My dermatologist recommended I use Hibiclens when I’m washing the infected areas of my body. I’ve been using this for two years, and while it’s great for HS it’s very pink and can stain.
I like to make sure I’m taking care of my ENTIRE skin and because it’s already sensitive I like to use Eucerin Eczema Relief Cream Bodywashfor the remainder of my body to ensure my skin to ensure my skins fully calm.
I don’t know about you, but, I get some of the worst outbreaks in some of the most awkward parts of my body so, I can completely forget about using band-aids. Not to mention
I love taking a warm shower to relieve the pain from an HS flare-up but taking three to five showers dries out my skin so I use a warm compress so I don’t have to take so many showers. This can help reduce the swelling and inflammation of an HS lesion. I’ll usually apply a Band-Aid Large Non-Stick Pad onto the unpopped sore, then apply the compress.
