Help! My Hidradenitis Suppurativa Has Flared Up

Esthetics By P Brown

I received this question on my social media and thought I’d share in case anyone else has questions.

QUESTION:  

Hey Porsche, are you familiar with HS?  I’ve been battling with this for more than 15 years and I just deal with it.  Right now my flare ups have calmed down, but I’m always looking for ways to manage it when it flares up.  

Also, Are there any non-invasive treatment options that you are aware of?

ANSWER: Yes, I’m familiar with HS.  I have treated this condition over 100 times in the last four years. 

What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

For those who are not familiar with it, Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic or long-lasting inflammatory skin condition and there’s no known cause, but the immune system is believed to play a role in the diagnosis.  

When people have HS, their bodies produce too many inflammatory proteins, including TNF-alpha. This imbalance leads to increased inflammation throughout the body and affects the deep layers of your skin, causing pressure.

When HS starts, you may begin to notice small bumps under your skin that seem to be the size of a pea or marble. These bumps usually start to develop in areas where skin rubs together (underarms, bikini area, creases in the stomach area, inner thigh, buttocks), where you have hair, and where sweat glands are located.

Some Non-Invasive Treatments for HS:

  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage
  • Cavi-Lipo 
  • Infrared Sauna 
  • Waxing instead of shaving
  • 6-8oz of Our Hormone Balance Tea in the AM/PM

In my experience when we put our clients on a hormone balancing tea, an anti-inflammatory diet, and in the beginning we utilized the treatments above and it significantly reduced their flareups and started to open drainage entirely.
