I was allergic/intolerant to lactose for 7 years. I love iced coffee. That did not mix well.

...

I need to mix up a batch of cold brewed coffee concentrate.  For reasons.

Something is terribly wrong with my intestinal system. Ick.

Also, the right half of my nose is sore, but I can't find anything wrong with it!

I've had that happen where it turned out there was a pimple INSIDE my nostril. >:( You have my sympathies on both problems!

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this or not, but I have Hidradentis suppurativa. Look up pictures with caution.  It causes some massive, hateful, painful, bloody, pus filled boils in not so nice places and can leave massive scarring.  I typically get them on my inner thigh and under my breast and it's bad enough that it has left scarring.  Oddly, I don't often get them in the most common place of the armpits.  It's a chronic skin condition with no cure...in my case, a hereditary one.

Several months ago, I underwent a radical diet change and the doctor had me cut out all sugar and refined carbs.  I am only eating meat/fish, dairy, non-starchy vegetables, fruit, and minimal amount of beans...no bread, no pasta, no rice, no potatoes, no wheat/gluten products of any kind. 

My HS, which I've had since puberty, has virtually vanished.  I cannot remember a time that I did not have a large painful boil somewhere on my body, usually several at a time (and when I say large, I mean the size of a ping pong ball was not unusual).  Right now I have one tiny, pea size one on my thigh and it doesn't even hurt.  Even my doctor commented on how much better it looked and the scarring seems to be fading some (AWESOME!).

I'm a fellow sufferer of HS. I'm fascinated by the diet change. I found that as I grew older, my HS calmed down on its own, but I still get the boils. I didn't change my diet, it just...went into remission? But yeah, puberty was an awful time. For me, they were in my arm pits (thankfully none in the groin!) and the pain was so bad, I spent 3 years not being able to raise my arms. I had to basically keep my upper arms pressed against my body.

I will definitely change my diet, and see if it will help the last of it! And it's a good diet change to make anyway, for general health!

I've heard from older female relatives that theirs significantly improved after menopause or them having hysterectomies.

My friend made a post on Facebook earlier about how a guy in line in front of her at Starbucks proceeded to throw up out of his drivers window.  :o

I can totally see why that would help calm it down. But since I'm not even 40 yet, I really don't want menopause yet! But I do have really bad endometriosis, so if my medication I'm currently on ever stops working, a hysterectomy might be the other option.

I had vomit splatter onto me in a fast food bathroom once.

We were driving north through Tejon Pass (windy twisty mountain roads at 60-70 mph, and the interstate up through LA was basically stop-and-go traffic), and when we got out onto the plains section we stopped at a fast food place. I went to visit the restrooms while Dad ordered lunch for everyone. While I was in a stall, I heard from the one next to me "No, sweetie, just a bit further...."

Sweetie did not make it any further. Something white went all over the floor of the stall next to me. Some of it splattered under the divider. I wiped it off my leg and made a hasty exit. It was at least cleaned up hastily - when I told the story to my family, Dad commented that he'd wondered why they would pull someone off the registers to clean when the lines were nearly to the door.

Eeeew I'm sorry that happened.  :(My mom got barfed on at a concert. A guy was carsick and instead of going outside to cool off, he sat there and barfed all over my mom.  >:(

I just attended special teams academy this past week.  Part of the training was getting sprayed with oleoresin capsicum (pretty much pepper spray) directly in the face.  The amount of snot I produced was phenomenal.  The grossest part was 14 people blowing snot rocks in unison while a drill instructor called the cadence.

Him: "In cadence!"
Us: "In cadence!"
Him in a four count "Plug, breathe, blow, wipe. Plug, breathe, blow, wipe."
