WHAT IS HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA / HS?

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating, chronic, complex inflammatory illness, also referred to as an immune-mediated inflammatory illness and follicular occlusion.

 

HS consists of extremely painful recurring abscesses that may start out as pustules (small, pus filled bumps/sores) that can develop anywhere hair follicles are found.  It is possible to experience abscesses or lesions anywhere on our body with the exception of the palms of your hands, soles of your feet, and lips. It has a huge impact on the quality of life physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and financially.

HS does not discriminate against race, gender, age, sexual orientation, geographic location or blood type. HS is not contagious. There are three Hurley stages used to determine severity. There is no cure for HS and the options for treatment are limited. Learn more here.
