This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
please repost it with more familiar title
and write only your symptoms (location, what makes them better/worse, how come you have them?)
and something about yourself like:
are you chilly/warm person? your thirst/appetite/cravings/sleep (recurrent dreams?insomnia
Homeopathy cures the person not a particular disease.

Well I have large acne
cysts in my groin area, arpits, behind my neck, under my breasts. I've always had acne, but these large cysts in those areas are new as of my pregnancy. I had the baby in Oct, but my condition has not cleared up.
As for me, I'm overweight
and have polycystic ovarian syndrome (hormone imbalance) which could trigger it. I do have trouble sleeping. I get warm when I can't sleep or wake up suddenly.
Hope that helps.

I have had HS and PCOS
since I was 16, I am now 25.
I can tell you there isn't a "cure" anywhere, cos I've traveled the world and hace tried every doctor/ish I could find. I even had surgery in my armpits. Homeopathy goes a long way! What you need to try is medicines that clean your liver and lymphs, which causes the flares. I live in Venezuela right now, so I don't know much of what you can find in the US. Echinacea
helps you when you have the flares. Join this group is the best advice I can give you YAHOO GROUP "HShealingwithGodgivennutrients". I never thanked Barbara, but her advices made all the difference to me! Now I'm healthier, haven't had a flare in months (and know WHY I get them when I do), and I am thinner!
Hope this helps!!!Ambra

hi, i can tell you for me i found the cure for this disease. i was so sick with draining boils all over my body. under my armpits, in my groin, some on my chest and legs and buttocks. i was in serious pain and it came on suddenly. i went to see a homeopathic doctor and he prescribed one dose of 200c elaps corallinus
. within 10 days the entire disease cleared. that was about 6 years ago. please email me with any questions. i deeply hope this helps anyone with this terrible condition.

I am 22 and I have had hidradenitis supperativa for about 9 years. I just finally got the diagnoses and my flare ups are getting a little worse. What helped some people? Could anyone email me with some advice because I am really alone in this hole thing. To AMNADIANNE, I couldn't find your email address but maybe you could email me and tell about what it is that you are taking because I am interested in anything that might help. Thanks.

HD is a disease that is difficult, but it is also a disease that can be regulated and controlled with determination. I have found the following to help. First start with cleaning a colon cleansing to get rid of the toxins in your body. Watch what you eat- read your labels(artificial colors, flavors, nitrites, mono triglycerides, msg, ect.)try to stay away from red meats(shell fish may cause flare ups and well). Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. Herbs that are helpful for the infection: Echinacea
- for the immune booster, Golden Seal
- good for infections.
Dial soap is very helpful, Tea Tree oil & soap
A great site which I found very helpful.
Dr. Richard Schulze website is great.
There is so much that can be done. You are empowered to help yourself feel better. Do your own research and listen to your body. It will tell you what works and what does not.

I first started getting these horrible boils in my teens. Im now 31. I had one i was fighting with for 2 months. It had gotten large and long. In my groin area. I started doing research on natural suppliments that cleanse the body, blood, and organs. I kept coming across Turmeric root. That combined with a good probiotic, a Clorophill capsule and organic apple cider vinegar twice a day, everyday. Within 2 weeks i ws feeling so much better in every way. The boils were going away. I have more energy and ive lost weight rather quickly. Look these things up. They work wonders on getting your body cleansed and working properly so you can fight off illness. Also, if you have a sore that just wont go away no matter what try this.. I would put a dab of neosporin or bacitracin on it and cover it with a flexable cloth band-aid every night before bed. By morning it would have drained again and flattened out. Its a good preventative measure when you first feel the beginning of one too. A stronger antibiotic gel for topical control of the sores is Clindimyacin, it works better but requires a prescription. My Dr had put me on Biaxin (antibiotic pills) and even though it seemed to work good, it has some undesirable side affects. I didnt take the entire bottle. It gave me bad cramps, runs, and a bad chemical-like taste in my mouth.. So try taking some natural things to get your body systems cleaned out and working right. Just be sure when you chose your Turmeric capsules that its all natural with a guaranteed percentage of curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) with at least 800 to 1200 mg in each capsule or you wil be wasting your time and money on it. I found this out the hard way. GOOD LUCK!! And let me know if these things work. They work wonders for me.

Hello everybody I am new to this forum but not new to this disease. I finally diagnosed myself with HS 4 years ago and I have had it for what I can remember my whole life. Doctor after Doctor perscription after perscription.I have had tummy issues my whole life being diagnosed with IBS
and told to eat lots of fiber.For six weeks I have been in and out of the hospital all tests negative. My sister has Celiac and said it sounds like I have some of the symtems so I looked it up I had some but they vary from person to person. Then there were people who had crusty chicken pox
like sores on there shoulders different from mine but still sores.So I typed celiac/hs into google and BOOM!!! People with HS should NEVER eat gluten.My Doctor told me after I told him what I thought my pains were caused from that hs cant cause celiac but celiac can cause hs I all most fainted it was like a spiritual awakening for me I cried and laughed hysterically.PLEASE all who suffer from this horrible disease either get checked for celiac or just quit eating all gluten beware it is in allot of things but there is allot of great things out there as well.I just had to share this with all of you. I allways felt something was poisioning me and there was my food.I have been gluten free for only 3 days and i feel beter and the boil under my arm is shrinking.OMG can it really be something this simple and the Doctors cant figure it out.All our suffering I am so glad I never let them cut out my glands or remove my belly button like they suggested!!!
