Hidradenitis suppurativa unlikely treatment? Curious if my size & shape (thighs) contribute to the condition & if a thigh lift would remedy the prob.

Hidradenitis suppurativa unlikely treatment? Curious if my size & shape (thighs) contribute to the condition & if a thigh lift would remedy the prob.

Many treatments: There are lots of options for treatment. None of them are perfect. I would start with conservative therapy such as diet change, weight-loss, meticulous hygiene and then a dermatologist can help with laser for hair removal or a plastic surgeon can help with excision and skin grafting or repair that might take the form of a thigh lift but is more complicated. Diet change is promising. ...Read more

I've been experiencing Pain in my inner thigh? Which nerve could be sending the pain? What type of treatment do I need? It comes and goes.

I've been experiencing Pain in my inner thigh? Which nerve could be sending the pain? What type of treatment do I need? It comes and goes.

Need examination: Can't be sure that it's a nerve in the thigh itself though that certainly is a good bet. Could also be a nerve root being squeezed in the lower back which can send signals in a trajectory to the inner thigh or maybe it's BONE pain & not on or under the skin. Maybe it's muscle pain.

Can Velashape cause nerve damage in the thigh? I had Velashape done, while the treatment was being performed the technician left the machine on

Very unlikely: The "Velashape" treatment should not "reach" the "depth" of your nerves. (however the superficial cutaneous nerve in the thigh could "technically" be injured with TEMPORARY numbness resulting)

You should re-consider if you wish to continue such treatment in a facility where some "carelessness" may have occurred! MY OPNION ONLY!
