First Year with HS. Tried all types of antibiotics except Humira

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ive been admitted to hospital for 10 days due to side effect of rifampicin and clindamycin which cause with vomitting nausea diarrhoea and fever for two weeks. My doc ask me to stop the antibiotics and continue with iv 5/7 ceftriaxone, 8/7 metronidazole and 2 days of doxycycline when i was warded. They said maybe because of the new lumps i got on my neck i got my fever and other symptoms. So on the 7th day inward they removed the abscess on my neck. I was discharge with 7 days of doxycycline and gonna see the doctor this thurs. Should i start to take humira injection or just continue doxycycline but it developed new swelling on my groin after i was discharge...? Im only 17 y/o.. hope anyone could give any opinion on this.

    Hi Sofia. I'm very sorry to learn about your ordeal. I don't have experience with Humira, but I do have experience in dealing with HS for 15yrs. Was a very bumpy ride, but I'm happy to say I'm in remission thanks to Classical Homeopathy (holistic treatment approach)

    In the 15 yrs with HS, I had tried multiple types of antibiotics, 2 rounds of accutane, got steroid shots, underwent surgeries, took tons of pain meds. Felt like the best call at the time... but I know differently now.

    In my experience, the HS would return after I stopped the antibiotics. (I did multiple rounds of doxy too)

    Have you tried altering your diet? There are many folks who have experienced remission by changing their diet. There is a group called 'The HS diet connection' on FB. You could check that out, if you haven't already.

    I didn't experience remission with dietary changes alone, but after 5yrs of classical homeopathy treatment, I'm fortunate to experience remission now.

    Being young, I wish you found a more natural/holistic approach to heal your body.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to write back, if you have any doubts. Stay blessed. Good luck!

      Thank you so much for the feed back. Can you explain more about the Classical Homeopathy? Since I live in Asia country there are so many choices of traditional treatment but im afraid it will give a negative feedback and my dovtor already advice me to not try the traditional treatment.

      Same goes with me, whenver i stop my antibiotic, HS will return plus if im close getting my period, HS will appear too.

      Anyways thank you so much i will look into the FB and others about the dietary. Much love xx

    Yeah you should look for dietary changes I believe. I found that adding turmeric powder, cumin powder and pepper in my everyday diet has helped me a lot. I researched on those spices and they have some proven ground for their healing properties. I suggest staying away from all yeast products, high sugar containing products , reduce dairy products especially remove all lactose containing products and keeping a consistent blood glucose level by eating ontime and not skipping meals. Add the spices to your meals, if you current bums already don’t start reducing withing a week of following this then you can go on to try something else. 

    Since you are young, your hormonal changes will worsen the situation so I believe that you really really need to make changes to diet and no smoking at all!!
