What remedies will help dark scars from hidradenitis suppurativa boils

Posted By Natsuko (Seattle, Washington) on 02/24/2015

I'm wondering if there's something that will lighten up Hidradenitis Suppurativa scars? I take 3 turmeric pills a day and so far, they work great! I don't have huge breakouts anymore, but I have really dark ugly scars. I'm 17 and I'm worried that the scars will affect my future relationships. I have HS around my groin area and behind. Someone please help :(

I have been using castor oil for the scaring and it really lightens them. it does take a while so dont expect over night result. Keep with it. The oil can ruin clothing though so do it at bed time with pj's you don't care about. Make sure you get good quality castor oil hexane free at a health food store. Another bonus is it is great for the skin. Best wishes, Sara
