    Hi Kirsty

    I had them on my face a few years ago. I had them removed. I took some advise from someone on here to eliminate night shade vegetable from my diet. These are tomatoes peppers chillies white potato and egg plant. I haven't touched these for the last 2 years and I haven't had an HS flair up since. I have followed a high protein low carb diet and not only am 4 stone lighter I feel a lot healthier too. I had suffered from the age of 16 and was didiagnosed with HS at the age of 42. I have had large abscess removed from both arm pits, both sides of my groin several from my legs and my chest. I have lost count how many times I've been under the knife. Give eliminating nightshade Veg ago beleive me it works. All the best Karen x

    I'm 40 years old and I've had HS for years and two years ago I developed a puss-filled cyst on my face. Each time I drained it it would come right back. I had to have it surgically removed. I now have a big scar on my face. I didn't know the facial cyst was related to my HS.

    HI Kirsty,

    I started getting boils carbuncles and cysts all over my face, jawline, and chin about 5 months ago.. After much confusion, I was diagnosed with HS, and continue to have almost constant flare ups. It is so painful, and embarrassing to have to explain to people what is going on. I'm still trying to figure out my triggers, but I know sugar is a factor for me. Also avoiding yeast, dairy, gluten, and all artificial sweeteners, refined flours, and processed meats has helped. You are not the only one dealing with this, and its nice to know I'm not alone either.
