Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a skin condition that causes small painful lumps underneath the skin. It usually occurs in areas where the skin rubs together like the armpits, groin, inner thighs, between the buttocks, and underneath the breasts. At TruDerm, we understand that this can be a debilitating skin condition that can also cause embarrassment and depression. Our goal at TruDerm is to provide attentive, compassionate dermatological care to all our patients. If you suffer from HS, call our Allen and Plano, TX office today to schedule a private consultation.

Symptoms of HS
Hidradenitis suppurativa symptoms include small lumps underneath the dermis that cause a brown or red-like appearance to the skin. These nodules take on a similar profile to that of pimples or boils. The pea-sized lumps can break open and release a foul-smelling pus. Men and women who suffer from hidradenitis suppurativa should seek professional treatment right away to ease symptoms and manage flare-ups. Symptoms can occur in one or more spots at a time and can last several weeks or months. In some cases, the disease gets progressively worse as the patient gets older.
What causes HS?
The cause of HS is unknown, but it tends to occur when sweat glands get blocked. The first symptoms usually occur in the teen years or early 20s. Women tend to be more susceptible to the disease than men but the reasons for this aren't clear. HS is also more common in those who are overweight and smoke. One-third of people who have HS report having a family history of the condition.
Treatment for HS
There is no cure for HS but early diagnosis and treatment is key in managing and improving its symptoms. At TruDerm, we offer a variety of treatment options for HS which can be discussed in detail during an initial consultation. Typically, treatment involves a combination of topical creams, antibiotics, steroids, pain medications, bleach baths, and zinc supplements. Treatment will also vary depending on the severity of your condition.
