I have found when talking with HS patients that, after the misery of having HS, the next most difficult thing in their lives is how to keep themselves comfortably bandaged. It is an impossible task. However, just as newer, more successful medical and surgical treatments enter the lives of HS patients, there is a newer and better way to manage bandaging needs.
HidraWear was created by Suzanne Moloney, an HS patient and advocate in Ireland. She hated how difficult bandaging was for her and she created that better way. Comfortable stretchy garments with integrated holes in a pattern designed to accept highly absorbent dressings and keep them in place. There are garments designed for underarm lesions, groin, and buttocks. You can access the entire line and get more information at www.hidrawear.com
