I want to start on a positive note. I joined this group just a few days ago & feel like I've found people that understand. I've seen a lot of great info here, as well as, a lot new ideas and suggestions here.
I have been having issues since I was about 15. I'm 37 now. It got worse when I joined the Air Force @ 19. The uniforms are not breathable. I can't count how many Drs, & specialists I've been to, nor how many lotions & potions I've tried. I had a big break through with going gluten free, but the sores come back. I initially went gf because my daughter (then 4) kept getting mouth sores (like eczema, but not). I was almost clear for the first time since it began. I got tested for celiac 2x's, negative.
I then discovered night shades-I'm still a smoker.... Trying to quit very difficult for me-I think the things we're allergic to are often the hardest to give up. My diet (and my daughters) are nightshade free & nut free as well.
So I tried a new dermatologist & she diagnoses me w furnucles. Despite me saying HS, & the fact that in 2014, I had a biopsy sent to mayo clinic and they couldn't even diagnose it! I got meds I've had many times before & feel like I wasn't even listened to. I almost started to cry in her office.
Sooooo with this weighing heavy on me, I feel my best option is to quit smoking & see if it helps. I know nicotine replacement won't stop the sores, but could help transition easier? What else can I do that is on my own because I truly feel that's where I am. As far as diet goes, I'm willing to try anything. I'm not just fighting for myself, I'm fighting for my daughter too-she's 8 now. She's only had the mouth eczema I did ribbed earlier, but I know the painful sores are around the corner.
I sweat a lot, I have hair on my bottom. I get sores on my bottom, thighs, pits, breasts, one on my belly, & starting to get them on my head in my hair. I'm soooo depressed Ed & in pain. I will do anything I can to prevent my daughter from going through this. Has anyone had success w hair removal? It's something her father & I have discussed to help her in the future.
Much love to you all.
