    I am very happy for you, that your HS disappeared. Certainly this is possible. After all, we weren't born with it. Certain things happened within the body that caused it to start. So if the right things happen within the body, it can also go away.

    I think some doctors misdiagnose HS, i had it for 10 years and i don't remember that it can go away. I heard the older you get it gets less inflamed, but as much research I did i feel like there are other type of HS then we are aware of it.

    I had my first boil around my first period, it was my 12th birthday. I couldn't sit normal!

    And that was it till my 14th, then it went nasty, gotten all sorts of stuff from my doctor, nothing seemed to work. When I was 17 I saw a different doctor and he gave me a stronger anticonception pill. This really worked for quite some years.

    I have times with and without boils. I've finally realized my boils flare up if I eat too much chocolate. I'm 39 now and still on the strong pill. And oh boy when I let myself go on chocolate!

    I take zinc supplements, magnesium and sometimes L-Carnitine.

    Magnesium helps with chocolate cravings. I think zinc helps with wound healing and not having breakouts.

    Also the L-Carnitine had helped me on the past, I would get tiny breakouts ( my butt was covered in tiny red spots) but not big boils.

    I also had Graves Disease (fast thyroid) I'm in remission now.
