Hello everyone sorry for the lack of updates. For the last month or so I have been taking Cephalexin 500mg four times a day. It does help a little it brought down my flare ups maybe about 30 percent. But once in a while I still have a huge one here and there. I have also been on morphine 5mg tabs and it does help with the massive pain a bit. I would say it brought my pain down 40 percent. I still take 4 advil at a time for bad pain. My Dr. is working with me for a good pain remedy thankfully. Thank you again for visiting my blog and all of you with HS stay strong!.
