      I have tried altering my diet and tumeric and nothing helps. I had surgery in my right armpit 12 years ago and it helped with the absesses but I now have lymphedema in my right arm and severe nerve damage from the surgery. Now the doctor is talking about sending me to surgery again.

    I am exceeding fortunate to have a mild case of H.S. that was diagnosed 2 years ago. I had about 10 outbreaks (accompanied by MRSA) within a three month time span. I figured out that I would have a breakout after I had consumed excessive amounts of coffee and expresso. I haven't had coffee or expresso since then and I have had only one small boil in the genital area in the past two years. I am also premenopausal and think that's played a part in this. Good luck to you
