I am a long-time sufferer of HS. I have had HS for 12 years. I have stage 3 on my thighs, stomach, chest, and underarms. My skin is extremely sensitive to all wound care tapes and gauze.
I am honestly in love my HidraWear AX. It is so comfortable. I feel like I can move again. I don’t have to worry about changing my bandages or worry about them falling off. The dressing stays in place all day and it is even comfortable to sleep in. My favorite thing about it is that there is no tape involved. I love that the dressings are thick enough to keep me feeling dry and comfortable. I love that the dressing can be moved and secured in multiple spots, rather than being stuck to just one area to cover. I love that it doesn’t interfere with my bra. With a few items of clothing as exceptions, it really does not interfere with my clothing either. I like that I can wear it and no one will notice it. Also, I like that it has adjustable straps in the front and the back. I have only good things to say about it. It is truly an awesome product.
I would recommend this product to anyone with HS in their underarm area. I know they are planning to expand their products so I would recommend the company as well.
The product is amazing but so is the company. They put people with HS first and that is so important for a group of people who are often overlooked or misunderstood by researchers and doctors.
They have excellent customer service and a very user-friendly website.
