What Is A Good Diet For HS

What Is A Good Diet For HS

I'm starting to notate everything I'm eating daily. I eat Ice cream year round. I eat Bread, almost all vegetables, a lot of different fruit, Seafood, Chicken, Beef, and Turkey. No Pork. I drink Cold Drinks sometimes. What's a good diet for HS? Am I doing ok with listing what I'm eating? Where to get a Nutritionist?

Hs is caused by the immune system attacking its own tissues
Hs develops when the immune system overreacts to clogged hair follicles and its believed sweat glands develop abnormal trapping secretion’s deep in the skin triggering inflammation
Caused by a combination of inherent and environmental factors
Common in smokers but none smokers get it as well and has possible links to metformin
Only way of describing hs = monsters inside me the program on tv 📺

I try to eliminate Gluten which is in a lot of things like Bread my favorite. I know that Gluten caused a huge amount of my inflammation with Gout and HS. I also do not do a lot of sugar and have went to little milk and what milk I do drink is Lactose free. This diet or new eating habit has helped me feel alot better and my outbreaks are smaller and less frequent. I am also on doxycycline and Metformin. I do not soak in water as I really break out if I do that. Water gets in the tunnels and all hell breaks loose for me.
