HS Tips: Hair Removal

Removing hair from the hair shaft is not a cure for Hidradenitis Suppurativa, but it may relieve symptoms as long as it is done the proper way.

Those suffering from HS often have severe debilitating inflammation around the hair follicular unit. Removing hair from the hair shaft is not a cure for Hidradenitis Suppurativa, but it may relieve symptoms as long as it is done the proper way. While gentle shaving and laser hair removal may be helpful, waxing can actually harm the skin and inflame the symptoms.
