Early recognition of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) can improve outcomes1

Many people with undiagnosed HS seek treatment in emergency rooms or urgent care facilities for immediate symptom relief, such as incision and drainage or pain management. This may be initially effective but because HS is a systemic, chronic condition, recurrence and irreversible disease progression can still occur. Knowing how to promptly identify the condition and refer to an HS‑treating dermatology provider can set patients on the proper management course as early as possible.2-4
