diagnosed with hs

Edited , 6 users are following.

ive had the lumps with puss on and of couple of years now, my gp doc had giving me anti biotech creams with really helps in that time but never said anything about hs. yesterday went a dermatologist and he said most likely its hs. im going to be running some blood tests, puss tests and chest xray so lets see then but most likely im pretty certain its hs.

now ive had this lumps on both arms pits 6-8 months back but the left side has gone and the right side has stayed and smells, is there a solution to cure the smell and scar?

on my face also ive had many but one has stayed on and smells if i press it. whats the solution?

    I dont give mine a. chance to smell anymore. As soon as they show up I mix baking soda and water and apply a small amount twice a day until they shrink or brake and apply a few days after they brake

    Watch your Blood pressure if you do this can spike.

    Its a stop gap for me, I have cut back on sugar a lot which some of us think is the cause. I have been doing better so far for months but who knows. If I eat a piece of cake with a ton of sugar in it seems to trigger or chocolate. No more of that or donuts. holidays kind of suck now.

    BY the way doctors are useless on this. I suggested it was sugar to dermatologist and he looked confused.

    Some will subscribe you humara which starts more problems.

      I'm having a pretty bad outbreak under my arm pit. I had been in remission for about a year which was great. I was in remission because i changed my diet completely. I gave up dairy products, sugars, white potatoes etc.. I recently had a setback & was back to eating whatever i wanted & my reminder came back full force. This is the worst. My advice to you is to research what foods trigger the outbreak & stick to it as much as possible.
