I think I know a little more about my triggers. I've had two small/medium boils during the past month. Usually I have a few more during a month's time.
I've been on antibiotics for a month now. For about three weeks I've been nightshade and sugar free. This past week I've reintroduced a little bit of sugar and nightshades.
The first boil appeared immediately after 6-7 hours of walking and swimming in a bikini bottom that caused friction in the area where the butt meets the thigh. It wasn't too bad, and after 3-4 days it was gone.
The second boil appeared on my inner thigh immediately after walking for many hours in a skirt. My thighs touch when I walk and so there was a lot of skin on skin with rubbing and friction (not smart!).
I don't think food triggers my HS as much as friction and clothing. In the past, I have often had flares after wearing tight clothing with big seams. As I mentioned I am on antibiotics now, so maybe they make it seem as though I don't react to food.
Anyway, right now I feel that my main trigger is friction. Maybe this can help some of you, by not wearing tight clothes or walking too far at a time.
What are your triggers? Hope you are well.
