    Will this help 2+ old scars? My early twenties, My condition made me think that I couldn’t be with anyone else. I have not had a boil in a while but the scars are still with me and sometimes I’m reliving the pain over and over… I want to see therapy for the emotional trauma because but will this help physically with older scars? I want to try to have a normal life or something close to normal.

    Thank you so much for these tips! I have found my own inventive ways to cover and attempt to ‘treat’ my HS areas for over 25 years of my life. There are now more and more treatment options coming out and I am finally excited to start trying some of them after all the years of struggling.

    I hope to be able to obtain some of the Manukamed products soon and I am curious whether they may also help with existing scar tissue but is not active (large areas of scar tissue from skin grafts, etc.)

    Thank you for sharing more tips and showing that there is hope for those of us out there who struggle with this!

      Thank you for the positive feedback Melanie! Great question. It really depends on a number of factors including the nature of the scar tissue. The Manuka products are usually well-tolerated and I think it would be worth trying.
