I had my first boils? in the genital area around 5 years old. I had been exposed to MRSA, and the boils were treated as related to that, but now, I feel this was the first appearence of my lifelong battle with hs. I am now 44 years old and I always have at least a few areas of hs happening...underarms, under my breasts, genital area. I have scars in all areas. I haven't seen a dermatologist before for my hs. I think I've been too embarassed and now I'm having a hard time finding one that accepts my insurance and is accepting new patients. I don't know if seeing one will really help or not.
I have several other health conditions and they all seem to have the common issue of inflammation. I'm looking forward to seeing what has worked for others and sharing some of the thoughts and feelings that go along with this horrible disease.
