    Hi,

    I had laser hair removal 8 times so far, it has definitely helped and its nice you do not need to shave anymore.

    I had groin surgery as well on both sides so my skin looks so much nicer πŸ˜ƒ

    Recently (since end of October) I started taking Zinc Gluconate 30 mg per day, I have not had any flare ups so far πŸ˜ƒ

    There is a study which says 90 mg / day could put your disease into remission. ) 90 Mg was too much for me, 30 mg works great (fingers crossed).

    Wish you all the best

      Hi Sylvia. Thanks so much for responding. Much appreciated. I'm so excited for your progress. Wishing you the best. Which country are you located?

      1. May i ask where you had the laser surgery done, the cost, what was the time between the sessions, was it done by a doctor or aesthetician, and were you numbed for it?

        2.So are you saying the hair laser helped and you've not flare ups since then, or helped 'cause you don't have to shave anymore?

      2. Can you please describe the constructive groin surgery a little ( is it skin grafting, what is it called, cost, done by a dermatologist or regular surgeon, what happens when you get more boils, do you have to get another surgery or does it stop recurring flare ups. That sounds so awesome. I've read about it so it's exciting to talk to someone who actually had it done.
      3. A homeopath recently prescribed 30 mg of Zinc also. I've heard 40 mg is the max you can take safely.

      Hi Rose,

      1. The surgery was done by my dermatologist with local anetshesia, in Hungary. (In Hungary its free of charge)

        I had to wait 5 months between the sessions as he had to make sure there was no recurrence and the surgery was successful.

      I believe the laser treatment has helped a lot as its reduced the amount of hair significanlty (95%).

      What I know for sure I had no recurrence or new flare ups since i am taking Zinc supplement.

      The cost of the laser hair removal treatment is around 100 Euro per session. (Type: Alexandrite laser)

      1. I had a simple surgery, there was no skin graft, maybe my case was mild. If you get more boils I suggest having additional surgeries. At least i feel better when a surgeon removes these things from my body. Maybe it sounds strange but i feel clean after surgery.

        Also I believe Zinc can help with preventing new flare ups but the existing ones must be removed by a surgeon.

      All in all I suggest doing laser hair removal, surgery and taking Zinc. πŸ˜ƒ

      Have a nice day!

      Hi Rose,

      I think I had some misunderstanding regarding your questions.

      I assume your first question was about laser hair removal treatment and not laser surgery.

      1. The cost of the laser hair removal treatment was around 100 Euro per session (Type: Alexandrite laser) and it was done by a dermatologist in a private clinic. You may ask for numbing cream but I have never felt pain during the sessions so I have never asked for it.

      I believe the laser treatment has helped a lot as it’s reduced the amount of hair significantly (95%).

      What I know for sure I had no recurrence or new flare ups since I have

      been taking Zinc supplement.

      1. I had simple surgery, there was no skin graft, maybe my case was

        mild. The surgery was done by my dermatologist with local anetshesia, in Hungary. (In Hungary it’s free of charge).

        I had to wait 5 months between the sessions as he had to make sure

        there was no recurrence and the surgery was successful.

        If you get more boils I suggest having additional surgeries. At least I

        feel better when a surgeon removes these things from my body. Maybe it sounds strange but I feel clean after surgery.

      Also I believe Zinc can help with preventing new flare ups but the

      existing ones must be removed by a surgeon.

      All in all I suggest doing laser hair removal, surgery and taking Zinc.

      Have a nice day!

      Hi Sylvia,

      when you say you had simple surgery as opposed to skin graft can you explain what they did? Was it just draining it or did they remove skin and did you have stitches. Look forward to your response Thanks.

      Hi HSmum,

      At the time of the surgery i had no inflammation so he just cut out the affected area including the scars. I had sutures which were removed after 14 days.

      If you use Salicylic acid ( 20 or 30% ) on the inflamed areas, the inflammation will be stopped, and it will make the surgery more easy.

      I found out about Salicylic acid when i was desperately looking for a solution and I can say it is a really good temporary solution.

      I hope it helps!
