I've got an autoimmune disease called hidradenitis suppurativa. it's not really life-threatening it can be if the affected area goes septic. I have stage 3 it is a skin disease not very commonly known. My insurance will not cover the surgery I need to remove the affected area. It is a very painful torturous disease both physically and emotionally perhaps even more so emotionally due to the fact that for example my bottom area continuously bleeds and there is a lot of pus I have to wear a puppy pad because I can't really afford adult diapers. if I don't wear a puppy pad I bleed through my underwear and my pants onto any furniture I'm sitting on it's a 24-hour constant bleeding. My underarms and neck are also affected. My dermatologist has had me on Humira for a couple years and antibiotics and steroid creams and some other stuff it kind of keeps it where it is instead of getting worse but it's not a cure the only way to get rid of it is surgery. Look up images of stage 3 hidradenitis suppurativa and you will see the torture I live with. I am grateful if you are able to help me thank you.
