Pilonidal cyst/Hidradenitis Suppurativa

For the last 15 years I have suffered from Hidradenitis Suppurativa. I have had HS abscess's under the armpits, under the breast, in the groin area, and upper buttocks. Although my Hidradenitis has been less frequently in its serverity, about 2 years ago I have one lanced by my primary care doctor on the upper buttocks (just shy of the crack) and although it was drained it came back quickly and has never went away permanently. My doctor recently referred me to a general surgeon. I had my appt last week and he thinks it is a pilonidal cyst. I have doubts about surgery because no one seems to agree on what it is (primary care vs. general surgeons opinions), also its expense (high out of pocket for me)and may put me out of work for an unkonwn period of time (have heard 2 weeks, have heard 2+months). I am new to natural rememdies but would like to try something else. If anyone has some advice as to what I should (or could) take to help with this, that would be so wonderful because I need a miracle!

Here's a little bite more about me:
-26 yr/old female
-have diabetes (on metformin)
-the abscess is hard and feels about the size of a quarter; it is regularly inflammed
-drainage occurs almost daily (mostly blood from two openings sometimes alot sometimes not)
- because of the location, it is sometimes painful to sit for long periods of time
-the skin around the abscess is much darker than my regular skin tone (I am caramel colored, the affected area is nearly black)
- i wash the asbcess regularly with antibacterial soap and hydrogen peroxide to keep it clean (i work in a hospital, so lots of germs)
- i work out twice a week, have average lifestyle

Thanks!

The cyst affects my confidence with my boyfriend. I am honestly ashamed on having it, especially on my butt.

19. How does it feel like?
It feels hard.

20. What comes to your mind?
Not sure what this question is about but I want help. That's the only thing I'm concerned about.

21. One situation that had a
big effect on you?
Regarding my Hidradenitis Suppurativa/Pilonidal Cyst- warm weather seems to make it worse. However, when I take hot showers, it helps lessen the pain and kinda shrink it.

22. How did that feel like?
Warm weather- not good. Hot water- very good!

23. What sensation do you experience in that situation?
In the warm weather, I felt a throbbing feeling in the area. In a hot shower I feel relief.

24. What are you showing by that gesture of your hand (Habits or Actions)?
I talk with my hands. I always move my hands.

25. Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?
I have tried castor oil, zinc oxide (non-tradition stuff)- both helped further drain the cyst but did not get rid of it. I have used antiboitics (did nothing for the cyst), I am on birth control daily (oral contraceptive- have been since 16 because I used to have bad periods that would last for 2 weeks instead of one), I am on metformin daily (for my diabetes). I do take womens multivitamins daily too.

26. Family Background
Both of my parents had hidradenitis suppurativa while they were teenagers however it stopped for them in their early twenties. I am 26 and it has not stopped for me. None of my parents or my brother have had a pilonidal cyst. No one else I am related to has had something like this on their butt.

27. Educational Qualifications of the patient
I have a Bachelor's degree and I am currently a graduate student.

28. Nature of work, what do you do for living?
I am a benefit coordinator for a local hospital. I am non-clinical. I assist in discharge planning. Although I am non-clinical, I am oftentimes in patient rooms while they are hospitalized. I am exposed to precationary rooms as well.

29. Desires, likes and dislikes for food
I enjoy breads, meat (shrimp, red meat, chicken, pork), I love potatoes, corn, green beans, pasta. I don't like many vegetables.

30. Name of foods which increase your problem
I'm not sure. I do notice that sometimes it will grow in size within minutes and sometimes it shrinks. However, it is usually a constant size of a quater. I do not notice what triggers it. I'm unsure.

31. Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not , you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections.
I am a goal oriented person. I enjoy being social. I do have a temper but I try to control it with rational thought. I am spirtual and true to my faith. I try very hard to be conscience of my actions in everything I do. I am kind and a considerate person. I am usually in a hurry (between working full time and going to graduate school, and working out, and family obligations, and my medical issues). I have been with my boyfriend for the last 7 years. I love him and he loves me :) We are not married because we both want to be better off financially before we do that (finish school - we are both in school). I have a cat, I've had her for 11 years. I am an animal lover true to the core.

32. Aggravation (increases-time, season,)& Amelioration (Decreases)
Hot weather increases pain, size associated with cyst. Cooler weather helps decease sensitivity. Hot showers help allievate pain.


33. Attached here your photographs of the affected area. (if required/optional)

34. Location of the disease

35. Side of the problem (Right or Left), (Upper or Lower part of body)
Lower body- left upper buttocks near the crease.

36. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc.

Hi, Again, thanks for the pics. What is the color of pus, if any?

Please tell me more about the pain, bleeding, itching and burning, if any?

Please go ahead and purchase Myristica 6C, Berberis Vulgaris Q, Sulphur 200C, |*@2@*Hypericum 200C and Merc Sol. 200C asap.

Surgery must not be an option as it will lead to more problems.

By God willing, you will be healthy soon.

Many prayers for your speedy recovery.

Regards
Nawaz

Hi Nawaz,

There is not much pus, instead, there is more bleeding. The color of the blood is bright red. When there is pus, it is just a cloodier color of red but the red from the blood is visible most often.

The pain associated with the abscess is mostly mild but occurs often when I am laying down or sitting. The other day I was running and I had slight pain just from that.

You are right, it itches all the time. I try not to touch it because I don't want to contribute to the problem.

It doesn't burn unless I give in to my own temptations and start stratching it.

Thank you for the advice. I will get the stuff you mentioned but when I have it, what do I do with it? How do I use these products?

Hi Crystal, Please try to get the homoeopathic remedies asap. When you get them, let me know, I'll give you dosage instructions, by God willing?

So, when there is a pus, it is cloudier color? How many drops approx? How often? Very important to know the exact color of pus such as Light Yellow, Yellow, Green, Light Green, white, watery and any other color? Please understand, this color will determine the correct remedy to be taken at that time.

More prayers for you.

Regards
Nawaz

Hi Nawaz,

The color of the pus is a light yellow color. Yes, it is a cloodier color. When I check myself in the bathroom I can only see the blood because it is usually very thick and remains there until I wipe it off. The reason why I say that the color is light yellow is because it stains my underwear in that spot.

As for the amount of drops, I do not know. In my underwear there are sometimes a few (4 or less) spots sometimes more (10+).

Also I need to know what quantities to buy. The Berberis Vulgaris Q and Calendula Q comes in quantities of as little as .05 oz up to 16 oz. What size do I need?
