Prompt referrals can make all the difference1

Some people with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) wait up to 10 years before receiving an official diagnosis from a dermatologist. One reason for this is the boils, cysts, and nodules commonly associated with HS can resemble other conditions. Knowing the signs of HS better enables you to make referrals to an HS-treating dermatology provider so that your patients can receive an accurate diagnosis and the right treatment. This is a crucial step in helping prevent further irreversible disease progression.1-4
