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!

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!

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
