Hidradentitis Suppurativa

Hi, firstly can I say thank God for this site! I had a hysterectomy 5 years ago and have had HS for the last 3/4 years. Through your site I am now realising that I may have had this disease for longer but before my hysterectomy I was on the contraceptive pill Diannette which I see from some previous posts has helped with HS.

I started off on the cures for boils as this was what I thought they were and went with the turmeric and garlic as I get severe outbreaks on my groin and buttock area. Neither of these worked for me unfortunately.

On reading through this wonderful site I now realise that I have HS and have been trying to treat it for the last 6 months as I was due to go back in for surgery and after having this done previously to no avail realised that I should start looking at alternatives.

At present I am on ACV with mother and Manuka Honey twice daily, shower daily with non scented soap and apply dressings with tea tree oil cream to affected areas to keep covered and stop spreading any further.

I haven't had a new outbreak for about 6 weeks (which is the longest in a while) but the problem that I have is that 1 of them is still leaking and there are 2 big holes at the area and the others just aren't going away. I am a very patient person (as you have to be with this) but wondered if anyone could provide any other things that I could try.

Thanking all of you for your help

Hi Susan, I too was diagnosed with HS in 2008 and I know how devastating it is. What you are doing now is fine, but pls. go back to using Turmeric as follows: 1 tea spoon turmeric some black pepper 1 table spoon of oil some fresh lemon juice (1 table spoon) stir and add water and drink - from time to time add 1 spoon of powder ginger this is to be taken from 2 to 3 times daily. Lemon alkalizes your body and is a good antioxidant and does kill the strong smell and taste of turmeric for those who can't stand it.

Also add 50mg of zinc supplement to your daily diet, some people take metformin which helps.

Stay away from sugar and caffeine, sugar is a terrible trigger and try to cut off fats and white wheat from your diet.You might find this hard at the beginning, but you will get used to it. Try to see a doctor re. those holes so he can clean it to stop this leakage and start healing - always dry youself up very very well after showers.

We do all we can, HS doesn't really go away but we try to contain it as possible we can, good luck.

I used to get boils in the groin area and just could not figure out why. I finally figured out what was causing this ailment after years and years of wondering. I had for years used bubble bath and I used many different ones throughout the years. Once I ran out and forgot to get some and again kept forgetting to pick some up. I didn't get any boils for a while. I bought some more bubble bath and I again got boils. I finally realized that whatever ingredient was in these bubble baths was causing my problem and I stopped using it altogether thank goodness. I am now boil free. So if you think that products are not harmful something as simple as bubble bath, think again. I won't use it ever again. I am a bath person as I like to soak and relax in a tub and I loved my bubbles.. but have learned to live without them.

Like many, I suffered from HS since puberty (so now about 10 years). I only went to the doctor once as a teen, this was quite traumatic as she simply told me I wasn't keeping myself clean. After that I started showering multiple times a day which caused the infections to get so bad I couldn't even walk. Now I know I'm extremely allergic to synthetic parfum and sulfates (also suspecting benzoates). I can't have it in anything, even if I wear clothes that've been washed with a 'wrong' detergent I'll break out within the hour. However, when I avoid bad soaps I'm 100% healthy (skinwise). Dietwise I eat mostly organic with much fruits and veggies and no porc, little sugar etc.. So I'm not sure if I would have infections again if I'd eat unhealthy. BUT I do smoke, drink coffee and alchohol, which doesn't seem to have any (negative) influence whatsoever.

I have suffered from HS for 30 yrs and have tried all doctors have to offer alternative remedies for relief. Bach (origional flower remedies)Rescue Remedy in spray or liquid..on boils and absesses 4-5 times daily. When caught early it resorbs/when in full "bloom" it helps drain and heal. I find myself craving Indian and Morocan food lately..will try the Tumeric remedy.

Hey everyone! I'm 23 years old and had sufferend from HS from the age of 16 - 22. I tried turmeric, tea tree oil, anitbiotics, surgery, antibacterial soap, natural deodorant, no deodorant, no shaving, creams, accutane, birth control... none of it worked.

What finally worked for me was Baking Soda. Just plain old, straight up, arm and hammer baking soda. After I shave, I just pour some into my hands and rub it on my underarms and inner thighs. I haven't had a flare up for a good 6 months and I'm happier than ever. I know this solution may not work for others, but everyone's body is different, and it's possible this may help someone. I understand the shame and the pain involved with this disease, but I want to encourage you all that there is a solution. As I said before, everyone's body is different, so each of us need different solutions. Here was mine. Hope it helps someone.

With Hope, Shanay

So this may be archaic but I found bandaid Tough Strips (not the fabric ones) are a godsend for me. They are waterproof and stay on through showering and sex. I have HS in my groin area and it is triggered by stress and hormones. I can not wear underwear on a regular basis or the friction will cause an abscess. This poses a problem during my periods because I need to wear underwear on at least 2 of the days and hope I do not get one. What I do is put one of those bandages over an existing abscess or budding abscess. It creates a barrier between my groin and the side of my leg so that when I walk there is no friction and I can stop limping. It doesn't hurt and if I leave it on long enough my body will reabsorb what is inside the abscess and it will go away on its own. This has taken up to a couple of weeks before, but that was when I was super stressed so it was trying to get worse not better anyway. Usually less than a week. If the bandage comes off for some reason I just put on another one. It has just been so helpful so I wanted to share.

good news for everyone who are suffering with this disease. my daughter was suffering with this disease for the last 2yrs , i have tried everything u name it and one day in my home i found a herbal antibiotic. actually my uncle use this herbal antibiotic for general purpose and asked me to try this one. you can't believe it the very next day i saw the difference. boils which were open were like going to be disappear soon.

i am writing you the details of this antibiotic but would like to say one thing. this medicine effects on my daughter very quickly probably she is very young and respond immediately to this medicine. but as more adults are suffering with this.. i have a feeling its will take slightly more time probably it will take a month or more . but please try it. she takes one tablet everyday for the last 4 months. i dont know how long i am going to give this medicine but certainly not going to stop soon. at least she is not a victim of Hidradenitis Suppurativa anymore.

the name of the _____ is bee propolis. its a wood supplement. if you couldn't able to find it feel free to contact me.

1: half tea spoone of "black onion seeds" with water everyday. before breakfast would be better.
2: turmeric powder,half tea spoone with water any time in a day.
3: drink atleast 8 glass of water.
4: try to eat healthy food and fruits instead of oil or fried food.
i m reffering this email to Charlene from Hope Mills, NC.

please believe on "black onion seeds" and try it ..it should work.atleast try 1 or 2 months.
i would be greatfull if i get a feed back.

Hi, i read the post about "Black onion seed" you use it by getting 1 tsp to a boil in one glass of water keep it boiling until the white part of the seed shows, let cool off and drink it, its very simple you can add honey for taste. There are some people who prepare a lot to last a whole week, its best done fresh in my opinion - I have not used it yet, but I was told its very good for HS and it helps stopping the boils from occurring.

I use turmeric and sometimes add burdock root powder with it- 1 tsp turmeric 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp honey sometimes I add 1/2 tsp of burdock root and sometimes I use a few drops of olive oil.

I use this without the burdock root daily 2 or 3 times a day. I also use another mixture, 1 lemon with turmeric without the cinnamon and honey - lemon kills the taste and strong smell of turmeric and helps boost the immune system.

You can find the Black Onion Seed, in any middle eastern, Lebanese, herb shop.

I hope this helps someone out there, good luck.

I have been struggling with HS for quite a few years, but recently I had BOTOX injections in my armpits that has provided me relief ever since. My doctor told me that the effect will last for around a year and then i might need another round. Initial results are very good. Good luck.

Patients with severe HS tend to have low iron and can easily become anemic. Recent research is beginning to discover there seems to be a connection between inappropriate amino acid metabolism in relation to particular classes of digestive bacteria. While it's not definitive and more research needs to be done this would suggest a high protein diet as a source of iron may actually worsen symptoms. I would instead suggest increasing iron through a source such as curly dock seed.

I have suffered with HS since I had a surgery that put me into peri menopause 5 years ago. I have been taking Tumeric for prevention and it works somewhat - I recently read that Burdock Root (capsule form) is a blood cleanser and can help with detoxifying the skin. I have only been taking for a few weeks and have seen a vast improvement (although it does promote sweating). I also want to share that I get Magnesium gel caps, punch a hole in it and squeeze out the contents, I use this as a topical when the HS is red and inflamed - instant relief and reduces the lump overnight. It's messy but works - I have yet to find a topical magnesium cream. I do hope one day there will be a cure!

Hidradenitis Suppurativa cure:

one thing that can cure your Hidradenitis Suppurativa is Burdock root. Take Burdock root for 3 months ( 3 times daily) and then stop for 3 months, then repeat... you will not have any problems anymore. Eat lots of read meat ( Burdock may lower iron), lots of fatty fish, limit dairy (once again because of iron absorption) and fruit + vegies. WORK OUT A LOT

Laugh a lot
live well

Thank God for this site and for your post, Michelle! After trying so many suggestions (Tumeric, baking soda, drawing salve, etc.) Burdock root tablets have succeeded in helping my HS! I have no angry red lesions for the first time in 3 years!

That said, this isn't a complete cure. You need to figure out if you have a food intolerance (mine are excess sugar and corn) and drastically reduce those/that food in your diet. Looking into leaky gut syndrome may also be helpful (I swear by acv, kefir, and probiotics. My stomach has never been this happy). Best of luck to everyone! So encouraged and thankful to have found this site!

HS: In my experience calcium bentonite clay compress draws out inflammation, soothes and accelerates healing process. Combine with epsom salt baths.

Hi, I just had to share some of the success I have found in managing this chronic ailment. I have increased my tumeric to 2000 mg, split morning and evening, lost some weight, clean areas with, the female wipes, apply emu oil, here is the kicker, Calendula Oil. I saw the recipe on Martha, but if you don't want to wait for the 4 weeks of infusion. I did buy a bottle, 29$ for like 8 ounces. I got it from farmaesthetics. I went on amazon and got dried Calendula petals, and made my own. I hope my batch turns out well, it comes out of the pantry on Sunday. I am Loving It!! Hope this benefits others that struggle every day like I do. Take Care

Im reporting back on a boil that ive had reacuring on my back since last sepember, it flared up again so for three days I began putting a blob of coconut oil on a dressing and pushed it into the boil and left it there for twenty four hours, Then changed the dressing, every twenty four hours thereafter.. The third day I put some Apple Cider Vinegar on the coconut oil, it absorbed a certain amount, and used this for the next seven days, I knew the Apple Cider Vinegar was in the coconut oil because the bloody discharge although just a spot or two was black, (it turns blood black).. After about ten days. (Yesterday) the area was flat and no discharge, in fact it looks normal. I'll keep it up for a few days longer just to be on the safe side. The coconut oil by itself seems to work but the Apple Cider Vinegar is a logical boost, as it cures so many things on the surface. I think the coconut oil acts as a carrier for the acv. But it needs a few days constant application to work its way down to the root of the infection.

I dont know whether this was HS but the symptoms seem to sugest it was. If any one seems to get a recuring boil it might be worth a try and would be greatfull for another person reporting back on its efficacy.

The dressing was just clean absorbent toilet tissue, with eclectric tape top and bottom with a strip down the middle to stop the oil coming through onto clothing. Changed every 24 hours.
