What is Hidradentis Suppurtiva

Hidradenitis Suppurtiva

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects the apocrine glands, which are found in areas such as the armpits, groin, and buttocks.

What Causes Hidradentis Suppurtiva

Hidradentis Suppurtiva occurs when hair follicles become blocked, leading to the formation of painful, inflamed nodules or abscesses. These nodules can rupture, causing tunnels or tracts to form beneath the skin. Several factors can contribute to the development and worsening of HS including hormonal imbalances, genetic predisposition, excess sweating, friction or pressure on the affected areas, smoking, obesity, and a dysregulated immune response.

How is Hidradentis Suppurtiva treated

  1. Warm Compresses: Applying warm compresses to the affected areas can help relieve pain and promote healing. It involves using a clean, warm cloth or towel on the lumps or abscesses to help them drain and reduce swelling.

  2. Lifestyle Changes: Making certain lifestyle changes can also help manage HS. This may include using special soaps, wearing loose-fitting clothing, avoiding tight and restrictive garments, and reducing exposure to factors that trigger flare-ups (such as smoking or excessive sweating).

  3. Medications: Doctors may prescribe medications such as antibiotics or anti-inflammatory drugs to help reduce infection, inflammation, and the pain associated with HS. These medications can be applied directly to the affected areas, taken orally (by mouth) or given by injection or intravenously (IV).

  4. Surgical Interventions: In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary. This can involve draining abscesses, removing damaged tissue, or even removing entire affected areas. Surgery aims to improve symptoms, promote healing, and prevent future flare-ups.
