I am New here(Hidradenitis Suppuritiva)
« on: Friday March 26, 2010, 05:28:54 PM »
Hello Everybody,

I am glad that i found this forum.My name is Ajit,27yrs of age.I have been diagonised with HS a year back.I have it my left arm pit.I guess i am in the stage 1 of it.I do not have much pain now but I am dead scared of my future coz of this disease.I have done my reserach on the net,read a  lot cases,saw pics and videos.Its damm scary.

I am 6ft in height and have a vey hairy body.I sweat a lot too.I am around 100kgs in weight.I was a regular smoker (5-6 cigs per day).I have quit smoking a month back.I do smoke and drink occasionally .

It all started a year back with a small lump in my left armpit,which grew over a period of time and burst open ozzing out puss.I thought it would the normal acne kind of stuff which i ignored.It healed on its own within 3-4 days and reoccured again after a month and healed within 4 days.Off late for the past 4 months,it recurs every 10 days and heals i naround 5 days.After visiting around 5 doctors i was diagonised with HS.

I was on Doxycycline(100 mg) 3 times a day for a month(didnt work).Doctor finally recommended me to go for a surgery which I agreed to do but after my research it seems like surgery too doesnt work.

I really dont know what to do now.Nothing seems to work on me,no matter what i do it recurs.

Any help/suggestions will be appreciated. Anyone from Bangalore,India with similar case??
