so yesterday I got to see a specialist of all things an infectious disease specialist. He spent a lot of time with me asked questions listened to me and then examined me. He agreed with and said it is HS. I felt so sad and disappointed on one had and so relieved on the other hand. He said he has worked with other paients with HS and as there are no cures he believes we can control it at some level. So he started me on 14 days of antibiotics and said he doesn't believe in over using antibiotics because they can cause other issues like building resistance to their effectiveness. He asked me if I had questions and or concerns and said he wants to see me monthly. After the 14 days of antibiotics he said we will discuss other options but he wants to get my infection under control. I cried and he listened to me it was a great feeling to be validated by a doctor. For the first time. I am scared but glad at the same time. I talked to him about nightshades and gluten and food triggers he said he's not heard of those helping. Or hurting. But that he will read up on it I'm hopeful and going to do my best to stay positive and motivated to find a way to live with HS. Whoshunny
