Hidradenitis suppurativa, or HS, is a debilitating disease associated with pustules, cysts, nodules, scarring and drainage, typically afflicting young women. These lesions can be quite painful and result in a profound decline in social interaction and feelings of embarrassment.
Indeed, patients suffering from this condition may be too embarrassed to bring it up to their physician. Fortunately, new treatment options are on available and many are quite effective, including Humira. Please see a Dermatologist to learn more about treatments for this potentially debilitating condition.
