Hi, My name is Lilly. I'm 20 and I have suffered from HS since I was 14. It's was written off by the couple of doctors that happened to get a glimpse during the early stages. It had gotten worse over the next 4 or so years but after years of depression and self imposed isolation I finally made some changes, weight loss and fasting has helped the with the pain, appearance and over all amount of lesions. But I still struggle with scarring, discoloration, left over abcesses and not to mention the horrible stigma associated with bad skin. I'm continuing to make changes until I get to a healthy weight and maintain healthy eating to get this HS under controll and into remission. I'm tired of letting this disease define me.
