Finall found something that made my hidradenitis go away completely! I have had hidradenitis my whole life but sometimes I went years without a breakout. 9 months ago I got a bump in my groin area that just wouldn't go away. Every day I had to drain it and you all know the frusteration. I visited many websites and read everyone's suggestions but nothing worked for me. A couple of weeks ago I visited the doctor's office and he suggested I try Bacitracin Ointment in my nose twice a day. I just dab a little on a Q-tip and swirl it in my nose. I can't believe after 10 days my bump is completely gone!!!! He believes HS can be caused by a staph or strep infection that lives in your nose. Maybe I've had this my whole life, I don't know but it worked for me. Bacitracin is an over the counter ointment so no need to visit the doctor. I hope this continues to work for me and if it worked for me maybe it will for you too. Good luck everyone!
