    Hi I've only recently been diagnosed. I'm sorry u haven't had any replies I hope others comment for u.i would try and get your doctor to test for food allergies as lots of people change their diets and that seems to really help. I'm going to try gluten free and see if that helps. Good luck in helping your daughter how old is she?

      Hi thanks for your reply she's 20 and only found out about a month ago that she has hs . But she said that if she as dairy it definitely gets worse so she's utility it out.and is trying to eat healthy she said it's got a lot better. At the moment it's very mild so I'm praying email can keep it hat way .

    Hi I am stage 1-2 and I have managed to push it in to remission for about 8 months now.  She needs to find out what is causing it, and then focus on that. For some people it is food and others it is hormones (although they are all related.) For me I am focusing cutting down my carbs as mine is insuline resisance related ( destressing, excercise, and good sleep are also important). Others find that foods e.g. the nightshades are the cause and elimination of these foods helps.  Vitamin D has also been found to be useful.  Your daughter might also findthe following useful  http://www.eblue.org/article/S0190-9622(15)01990-8/abstract  and https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/vitamin-d-news/vitamin-d-supplementation-may-improve-rare-skin-condition/>

      I have a draw fill of antibiotics, but most people seem to suggest that they only work for a couple of years before they are not effective. It is my understanding that they are largely prescribed for their anti inflamatory properties and not for their anti biotic properties. If i feel a flare coming on I use curcumin first which is a pretty good anti inflamatory in the early stages. I have held off on using the antibiotics ( and NSAIDS)  unless I need them, hopefully they will always be of use to me that way.

    I had a flare-up just last week.  I decided to cut out sugar and starch to lose weight, and it started going away by itself before I started taking the doxycycline.

    My last major flare-up came after I was cleaning and had a major allergy attack--sneezed for hours.  The next day--came back under the arms.

    If your daughter has already noticed that the symptoms inprove when she cuts down on dairy I think there's a good chance she can get a lot of control over it. I too have discovered a link between dairy and my symptoms, and if I am really strict with my diet I have hardly any symptoms.

    ?It's important to take control of this condition before it gets too strong a grip.

      You are most welcome. It's a horrible condition, not only is it painful it is also unsightly, and it can make a person feel very isolated. It's not exactly something one can talk about! It's compounded by the lack of expertise and frankly a bad attitude by most members of the medical profession.

      ?I only discovered this site recently and I have found a lot of support here as well as people's stories of what works for them.
