Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Hidradenitis Suppurativa is chronic skin inflammation that usually occurs deep in the skin in areas where there is an abundance of sweat glands. It is characterized by a combination of black heads and inflamed bumps that often drain pus. These lesions can be very painful and debilitating. When left untreated scarring results that can worsen future outbreaks. Treatment depends on the severity, or grade of the condition and includes a wide variety of options including, topical therapy, oral therapy, and injectable therapy. In addition, the pain of lesions can be temporarily relieved by injections with medication that can decrease the inflammation at the site.
