Hidradenitis Suppurativa and the ears

Okay, so I think I've been developing a very mild case of HS in my ears or on my inner earlobe. I don't really know. All I know is when I stuck my finger in my ear the other day I pulled out a yellow crust. Now, we know what that means, pus. I don't see a wound or anything and it usually happens around my period. It never does anything more than itch a little, feel a bit inflamed for a day, and then it'll eventually crust as it did.


I say all of this to ask if anyone has experienced a version of this? I'm nervous about what this could mean. Is my HS moving to my head? I can't lie, I'm afraid.

  1. I can’t say that I’ve gotten HS in my ear, but if I was in your position, I would feel very uneasy about it as well. Nevertheless, I hope it turns out not to be the case and I wish you good health. Stay strong and we're here for you 💜
