Hidradenitis Suppurativa

In febuary of this year I was diagnosed with Hidradenitis suppurativa, which is pretty much inflamation of sweat glands and you end up with boil like lumps, spots and scarring. I was put on isotretinoin (20mg) for the first month and now in my second month I am on double the dosage.The side effects of the tablets for me have been the worst:* really chapped lips * back pain (getting worse)* skin rash (not too bad, just on arms and face)* dry eyes* headaches* depressionSo as you can see not very nice but its not all bad, my spots do seem to be clearing up a bit, left with more scars than anything. Let's hope that month 3 will show even better results.Love emz xxx (would love to hear from anyone with questions or anyone going through the same thing)
