Hey, I'm new to the website but not the disease. I have diagnosed over a year ago when I was 17.
It's been pretty bad for me this year, I've had consistent surgeries and they don't stop reoccurring for long. I haven't been able to stay in college or hold down a job because I'm getting cysts so often like between October and December I had 6 removals.
I was wondering how you manage to live with hs every day and do what you want?
Does anyone manage to go to the gym consistently? Use nice skincare products not just antiseptics? Work full time? Does over-working yourself effect hs?
I'm just wondering because I'm 18 and having hs has made my life extremely difficult to study, work and socialise.
It'll be great to hear what you all have to say! Thanks!
