If you were to put together the perfect care package for an HS Warrior, what comforting and practical items and products would you include?

My HS survival kit is:
1. Vicks vapour rub (draws the flares to a head)
2. Non woven gauze
3. Magnesium sulphate (also draws to a head)
4. A heat pack
5. My cat (for emotional support) 😅
I am getting HidraWear soon from my GP as it can be claimed for free in Ireland if you have a medical card so I’m really excited to try it as tape or certain dressings irritate my skin!

3M sensitive skin tape, hydroseal bandaids, lidocaine ointment to help with the pain, and BoilEase to help get lesions to break!

My HS emergency travel kit includes:
Sensitive skin fragrance free baby wipes
(I like using the Huggies Natural Care)
Please let me know if there’s something else that I should add to my kit. 🙂

I would recommend patients use RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) for pain, The Mama Au for manuka honey slave for flares and stubborn wounds, and HidraWear for practical wound care built into clothing.
