  • Hidradenitis suppurativa

     Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a common (though rarely diagnosed), chronic skin disease characterized by clusters of abscesses or subcutaneous boil-like "infections" (oftentimes free of actual bacteria) that most commonly affects apocrine sweat gland bearing areas, such as the underarms, under the breasts, inner thighs, groin and buttocks.

  • Hidradenitis suppurativa

     Hidradenitis suppurativa commonly occurs around hair follicles, where many oil and sweat glands are found, such as in the armpits, groin and anal area.

    Medical management of hidradenitis suppurativa is difficult. The aim is to catch the disease in its early stages and treat and control these milder forms. Antibiotics are usual therapy (partly to eradicate secondary bacterial infection and partly for their anti-inflammatory action) and long courses may be necessary. Weight loss in obese patients and smoking cessation are recommended.
  • Hidradenitis suppurativa

    Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic relapsing disorder of the folliculopilosebaceous units (FPSUs). Its negative impact on quality of life is extreme, mainly due to the lack of early recognition, accurate diagnosis, and appropriate management. The support structure of the FPSUs is defective. Under the influence of endogenous reproductive hormones, exogenous hormones, androgens and their precursors in dairy products, and other dietary factors, the follicular unit is plugged and distended by retained keratin. Friction, shearing forces, and pressure lead to rupture and leakage of the ductal contents from the weakened FPSU, causing an inflammatory reaction mediated mainly by the innate immune system. Therapy requires patient comprehension and cooperation, counseling, aggressive hormonal and dietary modification, avoidance of the trauma that leads to rupture, active multimodal anti-inflammatory therapy, and early unroofing and debridement. The full therapeutic program is needed to avoid the aggressive surgery required if the condition is not diagnosed early and managed appropriately
