Before I list some of the foods to avoid when you have hidradenitis suppurativa, I want to briefly discuss other vital information you also need to know about this chronic skin disease known as acne inversa. Although scientific evidence is not conclusive yet about hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) disease, one can safely say that it is a heritable and autoimmune disease.
There are lots of sufferers out there who have confirmed that diet has a great role to play in curbing and managing HS. There are foods you can eat to boost your immune system in order to fight off frequent flare-ups and breakouts. You also have some foods to avoid when you have hidradenitis suppurativa. As a sufferer, you really need to be mindful of what to eat, drink or smoke.
For now, there is no permanent cure for HS in the medical field. It is all a regime of antibiotic medicines, incision and drainage and surgery. And there is a high chance of HS coming back with these treatments. Luckily enough, some daring ex-sufferers who felt that they cannot afford to live with HS pain and discomfort for the rest of their lives, took up the gauntlet, experimented with themselves and were able to create natural cures for hidradenitis suppurativa. A good example of such success story and breakthrough natural treatment is Fast Hidradenitis Suppurativa Cure ebook PDF by ThereseWilson.
Most importantly, you should not take hook, line and sinker, the list of foods to avoid when you have hidradenitis suppurativa. The simple reason is that individuals are different. A specific food may easily trigger flare up in one person and it may not in another person. For instance, a sufferer in one of the health forums that I am a member said that smoking don’t cause any flare up in her. But majority of patients have confirmed that tobacco smoking is a triggering factor as far as they are concerned.
What this means is that you have to experiment with your diet and variety of foods by studying what you eat and drink so that you can know your trigger foods that cause flare-ups. You have to introduce and eliminate some specific foods from your menu from time to time in order to clearly understand your triggers because not every HS sufferer reacts to the same type of diet.
With that said, here is a rundown of hidradenitis suppurativa foods to avoid if you are a patient or sufferer.
- Foods in the nightshades family including potatoes, hot peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, tobacco, etc
- Wheat, corn chips, legumes, dairy products, etc
