  1. HS is not caused by poor hygiene, and I would strongly advise anyone by NOT taking a bleach bath. Terrible idea. The bleach will destroy ALL BACTERIA. Good and bad not only on your skin but if you are female in your vaginia. Throwing off the delicate balance of natural biome. Not to mention the epidermis is our largest organ. Therefore the bleach would be absorbed. Bleach is a Terrible suggestion.

  2. apply a cabbage leaf to the area it will draw the infection out over time – apply with bandage leave on for as lond as flare up – it works
