The exact underlying cause of HS is unknown, but both genetic and environmental factors seem to be involved. Recently it has been established that HS is associated with an unusually reduced microbiome. The biofilm in HS affected areas is thinner than usual and it contains fewer bacteria1 and the composition of microbes shows differences to what is usually seen in healthy comparable individuals2.
MPPT (Aprobaxil) removes wound infections by optimising the microbiome through its support of the immune system. Therefore, when the boils and abscesses rupture creating an opening in the skin, MPPT will help getting the infection under control and the healing process underway. The quicker an outbreak is controlled, the less tunnelling the infection will be able to create and the less scar tissue is formed.
