Conditions: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)

What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa (aka HS)?

This condition, known as HS is a chronic relapsing condition of a certain gland in the skin located primarily in the armpits, groin and buttocks. Since it often appears in its early stages as small abscesses it is often misdiagnosed. The average delay in diagnosis of a patient is 7 years. As with many conditions, the earlier the diagnosis the better we can control it. As the condition progresses, it causes more and more scarring.
