Do you think there is a stigma around HS? How can we combat that?

Let's face it, we all want to belong. No one wants to feel as if they are an outsider. It feels good to belong and as a community, what can we do to fight the stigma surrounding HS?

  1. I couldn't agree more !! HSDisease is a great starting point. We have to normalize HS. Talk about HS in every day conversation. It's the only way to close up diagnosis gap and help those impacted by HS.

    1. I think websites like this are a great place to start! Seeing other people share their stories and having articles written explaining all the ins and outs is so beneficial to breaking down the stigma of the unknown that really surrounds HS. I also think continuing to share stories far and wide will help stop the misinformation that is floating around out there.
