A friend of mine has Hidradenitis. It is such a rare condition it is called an orphan disease in that not much research has occurred on it as so few individuals have it. In his case it has resulted in the growth of significant sized cysts in his lower back that keep returning after the surgeries. In the majority of cases this condition begins at the onset of puberty, the time when hormones kick in. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about what may benefit this condition. My buddy has just about given up hope. Thanks.
