Coming up for 25 soon and I have been battling with this condition since the age of 14 but got worse at around 20. But right now I'm on 2 antibiotics, Rifampin and Clindamycin and they are working great. I haven't had a single breakout and I have had no side effect. But what worries me is, the side effects of long term antibiotic use and how it kills the good bacteria too
Ok so the cause of HS seems to be 2 things, sweat glands and hair follicles. But did you know bacteria plays a huge role?
Bacteria that causes HS seems to be called staphylococcus. There might be other bacteria involved but this bacteria is the main one that causes flare ups, this goes for other types of diseases too such as folliculitus etc
Obviously bacteria is only a part of the puzzle. Not forgetting sweat glands and hair follicles
Now I am betting no one here has heard of "BacterioPhages" before right. Phages are viruses. Bacteriophages are types of viruses that target specific bacteria. This virus kills the bacteria by infecting its host and replicates itself if the bacteria becomes resistant.
Problem with antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance. This is the major concern and also it kills all the good bacteria
Bacteriophage: Targets the specified bacteria that is causing the problem. This virus only destroys that bacteria and it doesn't kill any other cells such as human cells or other bactera unless its been targeted.
I suggest reading up on phage therapy and how it can probably be a major part of the cure for HS people suffering here
And finally. Plastic surgery performed by an experience surgeon. That's right it can't just be a normal surgeon. Someone experienced in removing the sweat glands and the infected tissue.
These 2 things above, from what I have studied for a long time, seem to be the definitive cure out there.
I'm going to do both of these on myself. Phages have been used over 100 years in killing bacteria, and they are much more powerful than antibiotics because they don't mess your immune system, they don't kill any bacteria apart from the targeted bacteria, and when resistance happens with the bacteria the phage is trying to destroy, even the phage becomes resistant and it creates more phages to destroy that bacteria till its killed.
Bactera, sweat glands, hair follices = HS
Get rid of those 3, is the only way closest to a cure for HS
