This blog is about my personal experience, what I’ve gone through and what I’ve tried. Hopefully it may help you as well, as I have been suffering from this disease since 2013 and finally have it under control.
As you may already know…
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a skin disease in which pimple-like bumps begin appearing in areas of the body that rub together, commonly under the armpit or groin, but have been known to show up under the breasts or between the buttocks.
Since there is no known documented medical cure for the disease, early detection is key to help manage the symptoms, keep it from getting worse, and prevent severe complications as the bumps can be very painful and in extreme cases require surgery.
The ugly beginning…
In the fall of 2013 I began having symptoms Hidradenitis Suppurativa (aka “HS”). My very first breakout occurred at my front waistline. From hip to hip, pimple-like bumps formed and was extremely itchy. Few weeks later a had a nickel size boil grow under my armpit and it was so painful. That lasted for about 6 weeks before it went away on its own.
I still had smaller bumps in my armpits and those were itchy as well. In the next several months I have had breakouts in my groin, behind my knee, and an acorn size bump right above my butt crack.
What did the doctors say?
I’ve seen family doctors, dermatologist and even HS specialists. Many didn’t even know what it was and kept telling me I have allergic reaction to my laundry detergent!
I even found a Hidradenitis Suppurativa Center specializing in this disease not too far away and since my insurance did not cover, it costed me $475 just for a consult!
Unfortunately the Doctor told me that I have a mild case compared to what they are use to (turns out they specialized in performing surgery for extreme cases) and that there really is no pro-active medicine or treatment for Hidradenitis Suppurativa .
What an awful year 2014 was…
The symptoms came and go as it pleases and there was nothing I could do about it. I’ve researched all over the internet and tried so many topical treatments like acne wash, acne medicine, exfoliating soap, aloe, special lotions, and other prescription skin cream products that the Dermatologists were giving me.
Nothing seemed to work, the symptoms were getting more widespread, more itchier, more painful and more embarrassing.
Turmeric to the rescue!
I’ve read about turmeric in my early research but have always discounted it because I just didn’t think this all natural culinary spice could be effective treatment for Hidradenitis. Turmeric, in fact has many health benefits and one of which is that it is a great anti-inflammatory agent. Perfect to treat Hidradenitis!
Desperate for a cure, in January 2015, I went online and decided to buy the Eden Ponds Turmeric Capsules. My life changed for the better…
By March, the pimples on my front waist has slowly flattened and only scars left. However, I was still skeptical of this natural Hidradenitis treatment, because previously the symptoms just come and go on it’s own.
Is it really working?
In July, I noticed that I have not had a break out since I have been taking the Eden Ponds
Turmeric Capsules. Also my scars were slowly fading. I am beginning to feel normal again. This all natural Hidradenitis treatment seems to be working!
But wait…is it back???
In the beginning of 2016, I had very small break out under my armpits and the acorn-size boil grew above my buttocks again. However, the symptoms definitely did not last long compared to before and not as painful or itchy. But fearing the worse, I’ve decided to make a change and bought Dr. Danielle’s Turmeric capsules. Which worked out great!
I was concerned that the HS disease may become immune to a certain brand of Turmeric capsules. This is why I switched brands to Dr. Danielle’s Turmeric capsules. This brand is highly reviewed and recommended!
Lets cut to the chase ==>
I don’t have scientific facts about turmeric’s natural treatment for Hidradenitis Suppurativa, all I know is that ever since taking it, my symptoms have reduced in pain level, breakouts, and frequency…
…and even when I do have a small break out, it’s definitely different, less intense…I KNOW this is working…and who knows, long term use of this may cure Hidradenitis Suppurativa completely!
Me recently, nothing left but faint scars.
It is now the end of summer 2016 and I’ve decided to switch and try Swansons Turmeric Herbal Supplement just to keep the Hidradenitis “guessing”! I’ll write a review about one in 2017 but so far it is working great!
Please be patient, this Hidradenitis Suppurativa treatment does not yield results overnight. I strongly feel to treat Hidradenitis Suppurativa, it must be done from the inside out. Topical solutions may only give temporary relief. I believe it will work for any one at any stage of the disease, it will just take time and patience. Everyone’s body is different but with long term consistent use of turmeric, Hidradenitis Suppurativa cure may be around the corner.
