Help for hidradenitis suppurativa on scalp groin and chest

Posted By Jimmy (Uk) on 11/19/2014

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS):

This is the first time posting my story so I apologise if it is long. I first started getting 'spots' localised to my penis shaft when I was 13, I was developing acne at this time so thought it would simply go away. Subsequently, I was prescribed broad spectrum tetracycline antibiotics and topical acne creams. For the next few years my HS developed and spread to my scalp, chest and my groin. By this time I was put on accutane for my acne, it had no observable effect on my HS. I have been on antibiotics ever since (I'm now 18), my HS has worsened and I am desperate for any remedy that claims to work. I have never gone a day of my life since I was 13 without some spot or boil on my skin. I would love to hear if anyone has ever actually gone into remission from stage 2 or 3 HS using none surgical treatments. For example, the Paleo Diet. Many claim it helps but not one person bar Robb Wolf claims complete remission. Please help me find a solution. Also has laser hair removal proved successful with anyone with HS? Thanks in advance.

I don't know if it is legal where you are from but I use a topical that has only two ingredients, coconut oil and cannabis. the cannabis is slow cooked with the oil for about 5 hours is a slow cooker and hardens in the fridge after its done. there are videos on you tube showing how it is made. it has been the only thing that has worked for me and believe me I have tried it all. I also take turmeric in almond milk that has been warmed. The pain relief from using the topical is very effective as well. the only downside is that if you have a job that tests for drugs it will show up in the test. I feel no psychedelic effects.
