I need your help, everyone.
I've never exactly been one to love my body and my appearance but I haven't gotten to the point where I'm in tears about it. That is, until today I haven't. I have HS. ( For those of you who don't know what HS is and would like to learn, please refer to nobsabouths.com it's rather helpful in explaining. ) for the first time since I was diagnosed [ early 2015 ], I took a good look at my scarring and I was utterly disgusted. It's dark and ugly to be blunt about it.. It makes me worry about the future. I'm currently in a long distance relationship ( aka - never seen each other fully nude ) and I don't know how he'll take it when we do meet and, eventually, do see each other nude. My HS is mainly on my thighs and the "panty line" ( where your panties touch your skin between your thigh and your private bits ).
What I'm asking for is anyone with bad scarring / HS to give me some advice on how to get passed seeing your scars as ugly and suggestions on some very good scar cream.
Thank you in advance for your help.

hey! recently self diagnosed myself once i saw a commervial on tv. however ive had this since puberty. i dont have tons of advice but i use powder to stay dry and keep from sweating. it helps sort of. as far as my partner... im really insecure about it. i havent told him bc it never came up. i feel like he just embraces me for who i am, scars and all. if i have any breakouts tho i do decline certian things in the bedroom. i dont have much advice, but im right there with ya!
