Hidradenitis Suppurativa Update

I can say today that I am flare up free. Wooop, jumps for joy. This is great because for about 2 years straight I had flare ups but I haven’t had one in about a month and it feels so great and weird at the same time as I was used to having some sort of leak under my armpit. I still check my armpits for any boils but none so far (fingers crossed). So what did I do to stop this you ask? I started using tea tree oil. I kept on having flare ups from where my wounds hadn’t healed. I had been back and forth to the
doctors given antibiotics and some acne cream that I could only use at night and once a day which I never really used as I forgot and was annoying as it could only be used at night and it stained your clothes so it was just a no from me. They even prescribed me a antibacterial wash but could only be used for 5 days straight and no longer at a time. I was worried for my immune system because obviously my immune system was in a bad place as I have this horrible disease that was attacking me but then I was taking so much antibiotics which lowers my immune system even more. I was getting the flu every so often. So for the first time in my life I had the flu jab last year which was the best thing ever because I haven’t had the flu since. I would get over the flu and then next week BAM! The flu said hi again, I got the flu jab for free as I have asthma also which is worse in the winter. I started using tea tree oil on the 21st of May 2016. I read online about this disease and people online had said they used tea tree oil and haven’t had a flare up since. Once I read tree oil it all made sense because tea tree oil has great benefits. It prevents infections and encourages skin healing two properties that I needed. So I ordered two bottles from amazon. So here I am today a happy bunny as it is one less thing for me to worry about. Here is my Original post talking about this disease and how it makes me feel.
