Tell us you have HS without saying you have HS...

Having to explain your HS to those who don't get it can be exhausting. No explanation is required for this trend - let's hear what you got! 💜

  1. Wearing long sleeves on the beach to hide your dressings.

    1. Seeing some wear bright, tight clothing and being amazed and surprised that 'wow, you don't need to worry about leaks or bandages appearing through your clothing'.

      1. Being dehydrated but avoiding to drink water while in public, so that you don't need to go to the loo and deal with the dressings down there.

        1. I literally just say I have a chronic condition that deals with my immune system, and causes a lot of pain.
