Hi, I know you may not be knowing me but I need your help badly. I do suffer from HS since last 5 year. I am just 17 and my mental condition you can understand well. I have them on both of my armpits, they are big lumps, one open wound is there which has not closed since last 4 years. Always puss is coming from both the arms, it do smells bad. I was diagnosed for HS 1 year back. I ate a lot of antibiotics but none of them work. Now I am applying turmeric paste on it, eating turmeric balls. I started doing this since last 3 days. But there is not a single stage of healing. I need some tips some suggestions. Please please please please........

EC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fistula

In medicine, a fistula (pl. fistulas or fistulae) is an abnormal connection or passageway between two epithelium-lined organs or vessels that normally do not connect. It is generally a disease condition, but a fistula may be surgically created for therapeutic reasons.

The 3 Stages of Hidradenitis Suppurativa:



HS presents itself in three stages.[2][9]

Stage Characteristics
I    Solitary or multiple isolated abscess formation without scarring or sinus tracts. (A few minor sites with rare inflammation; may be mistaken for acne.)

II    Recurrent abscesses, single or multiple widely separated lesions, with sinus tract formation. (Frequent inflammations restrict movement and may require minor surgery such as incision and drainage.)

III    Diffuse or broad involvement across a regional area with multiple interconnected sinus tracts and abscesses. (Inflammation of sites to the size of golf balls, or sometimes baseballs; scarring develops, including subcutaneous tracts of infection - see fistula. Obviously, patients at this stage may be unable to function.)
