hidradenitis

Hi, After years of suffering (and surgery) I have found a wound care expert who told me that the problem is one of immunity to ordinary skin bacteria. She has had an exceptional rate of success with the following regimine. She recommends daily washing in Betadine (iodine based) surgical scrub solution paying particular attention to the problem areas (groin, bottom, armpits, under breasts) after showering with this at least once a day rehydrate arms and legs with Dermadrate dry skin treatment or similar ph balanced fragrance and lanolin free moisturiser. You should also take daily zinc tablets. Dress the wounds with iodine soaked gauze and an absorbent non plastic dressing (such as breast shields - cheap!) preferably not held in place with tape but with bike pants or control stockings or similar tight preferably clothes. It is important to also look after yourself - plenty of fresh fruit and veges to keep your immune system well. This system of maintenance will keep the problem infections away and so minimises the need for cortisone, antibiotics and surgery.
