Hey fellow hs sufferers!
I have had hs since I was about ten and now I am twenty years old, mainly in the groin and buttox area. About a year and a half ago I went vegan. This was because of ethical reasons, nothing else. After about a month or two I started to notice less and less boils and suddenly I had no left. At the time it was unheard of for me to not have even one boil. After three months of being vegan I had to go back to my old way of eating, vegan was no longer an alternative due to my living situation. After about a month of eating "normally" I noticed my hs getting worse. Four months after I had the opportunity to go vegan again, which I did of course, and this had the same effect as before.
I am not boil free, but most of the times I have none and the ones I get are not as severe as before. I hardly ever get boils that burst and sting anymore, which I would get almost every week two years ago.
This discovery has practically saved me, I was so embarressed about my situation and thought I would never even have the confidence to have sex with someone, but now I am living like most people my age and can feel confident enough to have sex.
I hope this helped someone and I would love to hear of anyone has had the same experience as I did!
