Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is 3x more common in women1

Women with HS also have a 3-fold risk of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). As a gynecology specialist, you can create a comfortable space for your patients and identify HS flares in common locations, such as the groin, axillae, and under the breasts. Timely referrals to an HS-treating dermatology provider are vital to ensuring proper diagnosis and treatment.2-4
