Pictures of my Hidradenitis suppurativa.
This is a picture from 2009 from when I started documenting my hs. This is discharge that happens 24/7 it never stops. I have to change bandages up to 10 times a day.
This is a picture from July 2011 showing it is not getting better it is actually getting worse.
This is discharge that happens when I remove the bandage. You can see how much has drained out. This is enough to fill a soda can. And talk about pain I am in massive pain 24/7.
I know this is gross, but I want everyone to see what we have to suffer through. This is a picture under my left arm. Massive pain!
Here is another nice close up for you!
Another getting ready to break. This is from 2009.
More blood not so much pus. This happens daily for me. I know it is gross on the floor but i had to do it for an example of how much there is.
Here is another close up of a sore that will never heal or close. They may clinic made a cut so it can drain. This cut is 5 years old and leaks like this 24/7 it never ever stops.
As you can see my skin is very scared and damaged. It sometimes make me ashamed but I have to stay strong and deal with it, there is nothing that can be done to help me at this point I am stage 3 to the max.
Another close up. You can also see some bandage rash going on.
very painful after a break!

More clothes ruined today July 29, 2011.
August 10, 2011. This is what I woke up to this morning.
This is what it looks like when I take the bandage of August 10, 2011 8 am.
August 10, 2011 same day just a few hours later the iflamation has been building for a few hours. Very painful today.
August 10, 2011. When I took the above bandage off this shot out all over the floor. Man it was a bad painful day!
This is a brand new growth on the back of my neck. 10/19/2011. I hope this does not get big like my others. Right now it is small about the size of a dime, but with my history this is not good. i will keep you updated.
10/20/11. Not to much leakage today, very light. But you can see how many sinus tracts have been created this spot alone has 7 drainage points.
11-7-2011. This is in the center of the back of my neck. This is fairly new and it sucks. It is very hard to get bandages to adhere to this area. It leaks whenever it feels like it and has been getting all over my clothes and sheets, etc.
11-16-11. This is a picture of my inner thigh. My hidradenitis suppurativa mixed with a rash. Man this hurts and itches big time. I have this both thighs.
11-28-11 Not to heavy of a leak today. But it still stinks like mad.
Ok this is probably the grossest thing you are ever going to see but I wanted to share it to show how horrible this is. This is a HUGE cyst on my scrotum. Right now it is about 5 times bigger than this picture and I feel like I am dying!
12-18-11, this picture is from Monday December 12, 2011. As you can see on the bottom of my scrotum the new cyst. This thing is huge and over night it grew about 5 times bigger. I did not get a chance to take a picture I was rushed to the ER. You can also see how my scrotum is swollen as well. This was the worst pain ever! you can also see all of the scaring on my inner left thigh to show how sever I suffer from Hidradenitis Suppurativa. It sucks!
3-14-12 this is my left arm pit very painful today.
10-3-12. This is my left arm pit. I know it is hard to see but right now this pain is MASSIVE and it sucks! Tons of leakage as well.
So now you see what we who have HS have to suffer through. The above images are apart of my life everyday. My HS is so advanced it never settles. I have flair up’s every single day since I have it in so many places. I honestly can say i have no had a pain free day in the last 10 plus years.
1/17/13 This is my waist area, As you can tell this is bad. This is how my whole waist looks.
