Hi, i am hoping for some help.

Ive been suffering with HS now for just under 10 years.

My doctor doesn't seem to want to help me, they have been giving me the same tablets for over a year now. They are not working, they make me feel ill and horrible. No matter how much i try to voice my concerns, they just seem to brush them under the carpet.

At the moment im flarring up really bad, there spreading and only getting worst. She trys to blame it on my weight. I am over-weight but ive only been this way through comfort eating to try get rid of the pain for HS. Im looking for any help/advice.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Look forward to hearing your comments.

    Hi iv been suffering 10 years also same problems as you so i suggest you Try echinacea root herbal tablets these are the only tablets thats have worked for me and eat lots of strawberrys they have anti-inflamatry properties hope this helps p.s dont take the echinacea all the time if you can tell when your about to have a flare up take 3 at once the first day two the next then take 1 for a week and then stop it will help it then repeat this every time, it isnt a cure but make dealing with it so much easier, hope this helps you.

    Thank you.

    Where can i get them tablets from?

    They was going to put me on ciclosporin, but couldnt take my blood as they couldnt get any out of me, this is as far as ive gotten, im even contemplating changing doctor surgery to see if i can get different help as i cant go on like this, im struggling to move at the moment. Xx

    Any health food store maybe even amazon just make sure its the root of it as its the best for it 😔sorry to hear your not doing well but how these tabs work for me is if i have a bad flare up with large abscesses i take as i told you and either that night or the morning it will (bit grose but sure you understand) pop and the pain is completly gone and heals nicely in a few days and to me its better then it taking months in my case to heal so it keeps me happier hope it does the same for you 😊
