Coming from an intelligent student who has suffered from HS since being 13 years old, I have found an effective way of inducing remission in myself.
Some background; I am hurley stage 2 and suffer from HS in multiple areas. I have never achieved remission before whilst taking various antibiotics and accutane etc. However, many - myself included - believe HS to be an autoimmune condition. I have suffered with bad acne, allergies, asthma and eczema previously. Autoimmunity cannot be cured but can be effetively treated.
Adhering to a strict autoimmune diet (google it) should induce remission in HS patients after a period of roughly 1 or 2 months, depending on severity.
Other possible solutions include:
-Testing for food allergies/sensitivities. (ask your doctor)
-alkalizing body PH levels, using lemon water/raisins etc
-avoiding specific food groups (gluten, dairy, nightshades, sugar)
-reducing stress through low intensity excersise.
-topical clindamycin appears to help.
-rifampicin and clindamycin antibiotics are effective short term.
-Supplementing with vitamin D, Zinc, Omega 3 oils,
-anti-histamines may be effective, i.e loratadine, quercetin.
-losing weight (never been a problem for me)
-hormone treatment (im a man, so not really relevant)
-hibiscrub, others report success
-tumeric, only effective when ingested with black pepper and fat i.e. butter.
-testing for heavy metal toxicity
-treating leaky gut (google it)
I would strongly advise looking into all of these solutions, I have spent many many hours researching the effectiveness and plausibility of these treatments and I'm convinced that the treatment for your HS is one of the above.
I am now completely in remission and would give up anything to keep it this way. Dont lose faith, there is always a solution.
