Treatments for Hidradenitis Suppurativa
I am 20 years old and have had HS since I was at least 14, when I finally asked the doctor what it was they sent me to the dermatologist. My dermatologist gave me topicals and washes and creams and anything they could think of that might make a difference. There weren't any. Last year I brought up accutane, and I have now been on that for 6 months, but it has not been working like I thought it would. My next hope is laser hair removal. What are your suggestions on this or other treatments?
