Hidradenitis suppurativa? boils! Calling Dr. Mahfooz Rehman, Dr. Deoshlok Sharma -- Please help!

I read through the forum on this topic but couldn't find specific information on the treatment for this condition, so I'm starting a new thread with a little bit of background about myself.

Sex: male
Age: 25-30

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?

I recently got a boil on my left butt-cheek, about 2 weeks ago. (I had uneven skin here, from similar boils in the past, but have not been painful. I have been doing ok for the past year or so.)

So I went to my doctor, and he drained it. Some pus and blood came out, and it continued to drain a little blood and pus every day for 3-4 days....not much pain though. However, the boil came back lasty week, so I started taking hep sulph 200ck. But instead of the puss getting absorbed it swol up a bit more, and also got a little painful. So I went to the doctor and he drained it two days ago. Now, a little bit of puss and blood is coming out everyday.

I stopped the help sulph, and I started taking silicea 200ck, one dose in the morning, and calc sulph 200ck, one dose at night. So far I have taken two doses of each.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

No certain time, but sitting down is painful when it's swollen

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

None, but I do have to sit in front of a computer for long hrs. So I think that might be a reason for this.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

No, don think so.

Zahid, Thanks a lot.

Just a couple of pieces of more info. I went to see my doctor today, and he inserted more Silver Nitrate into the area.

Seems like the pain is a bit less than a couple of days back, and the same goes for the swelling.

Now, should I take the phosphorus 200c after stopping silicea and calc sulph? (Just want to be sure.) And also, what would exactly phosphorous do?

Thanks a lot for your help, I appreciate it very much.

Hello Dr. Sharma,

It's been 5 days since Im taking myristica, thankfully things have progressed real (even though I still have two days worth of doses left.)

Just to give you an update, the swelling is almost gone, no pain, but a few drops of yellow fluid comes out every day. No foul smell though, so I'm not sure if it's actually pus.

Please let me know, what should I do next.

Thanks a lot

dear patient,

Please continue the advise of dr. sharma which is very good. I do agree with it. However, if He agrees one dose of calc.sulph-1m weekly in addition to above would also help you.

Just FYI, since the past few days, I have been eating a small piece of turmeric & a clove of garlic every morning.

Not sure if this helped myristica in it's job, but i think it might have helped in purifying blood and also boosting the immune system.

Thanks a lot.

obviously you need to purify your blood. Ecinicia-Q is a good blood purifier in Homoeopathy. No doubt these thing helps also

Hello Dr. Deoshlok Sharma,

As per your advice I have been taking Myristica Seb for the last week, 3 doses daily.

The boil stopped leaking pus around 7/8 days back, and it almost healed up with no pain, it just felt like a little bleep in the area.

However, since yesterday I can feel another boil forming in the same area, and seems like it's just becoming bigger, and harder with time. and very very painful.

Please let me know what should I do?

Thanks a lot.
