Hidradenitis Suppurativa Support Group

Hidradenitis suppurativa (hi-drad-uh-NIE-tis sup-yoo-ruh-TIE-vuh) is rare, long-term skin condition that features small, painful lumps under the skin. The disease manifests as clusters of chronic abscesses or boils, sometimes as large as baseballs, that are extremely painful to the touch and may persist for years with occasional to frequent periods of inflammation, culminating in drainage, often leaving open wounds that will not heal.

Sulfur powder

Dries these stubborn lumps up like nobody's business! I bought mine on amazon.com a while back but never used it. It's pharmacy grade and was less than 5 bucks with shipping. I was curious and mixed mine with olive oil last night and applied to old lumps that never went down fully. They weren't sore or draining, I am just in search of a smoother groin and right armpit. Well when I awoke I almost cried at the shocking results. I know many of you are allergic to sulfur, and others not willing to try this, but maybe one brave soul will. I think there should be alot more of us living at least 80% pain free lump free lives by now, I encourage you all to continuously research and try new treatments until you find one that gives you relief.

Blessings

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
