So nice to find an active thread on hidradenitis suppurativa! I'm 26 and have been suffering with HS since I was 16. Currently waiting for my second surgery. I'm having the highest flare up I've ever had and my surgery isn't for another month. Ive ordered emuaid (still waiting for it in the mail) started taking estrosense (a natural hormone balancer) and I'm starting turmeric supplements tonight. I have a flare up in my armpit that is bigger then a golfball. Been like this for a couple weeks. Super painful and living off Advil and naproxen. Using hot compress and ice packs. Nothing has helped so far. Terrified to go get it lanced. My lesions have always just done their own thing and opened and drained on their own. This time is different. It's under very thick scar tissue so I think it's having a really difficult time opening. I'm so happy to have found a community of people who share this awful disease. Are any of you interested in starting a discussion personally? I'd love to connect with you all and see what we've tried that's worked or hasn't worked. There's so many things online to try natural and medication but as we all know what works for one person does nothing for the next.. so I think it would be nice to connect and help each other out!
