Keep your skin cool

Your body overheating and sweating a lot can cause HS lumps and inflammation to flare so if at all possible try to stay away from hot, humid places. This might mean avoiding sitting next to the fireplace, prolonged sunbathing, or intense bursts of exercise in the gym. 

If you need a product that can help reduce sweating, such as an antiperspirant, ask your dermatologist for a recommendation. The ingredients in some antiperspirants are too harsh on skin affected by HS.
