19 Years of HS

Last updated: October 2022

I got diagnosed by a wonderful ob-gyn at 18. I've lived with stage 3 and both sides of the groin and have only been lanced once. I have recently been developing lesions more than boils. I stay grateful at 37 I have not had to have skin grafts and that it hasn't spread to any other locations! I'm sorry for anyone who has to deal with this terrible condition. We are warriors!
