What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, systemic condition where an overactive immune system contributes to inflammation below the skin.

What are symptoms of Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

Symptoms of HS may include multiple nodules and abscesses, inflammation in the dermis, malodorous discharge, sinus tracts, scarring, ulceration, and infection.

HS lesions typically occur in the most sensitive areas of the body such as axillae, breast, groin, and buttock.

Hidradenitis Suppurativa Treatment options:

Discuss your HS symptoms and disease journey with your dermatologist to determine the best treatment choice for your situation.

What causes Hidradenitis Suppurativa:

The immune system is producing excess amounts of cells and proteins, even when there is no problem to address. The ongoing overproduction of cells and proteins leads to chronic inflammation. This inflammation contributes to the symptoms that appear on the skin.
