I developed hidradenitis while pregnant. It was debilitating when I was pregnant but 6mo post partum and on humira it has improved tremendously. Instead of having 10-15 boils in my groin area I'm down to 3. The problem is that its not just not fully healing, those 3 move around.
Antibiotics just aren't kicking it. Where its active disease I'm also weary of surgical treatment. I don't think that will stop it.
I got a booklet on accutane but I just can't chance those side effects.
I feel like I am resigned to this forever. :( I can't even wear a bathing suit.
Any advice, if there is any, is extremely welcome.
