What is HS

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating, chronic, complex inflammatory illness, also referred to as an immune-mediated illness and follicular occlusion. It has a huge impact on quality of life physically, mentally, and emotionally. HS consists of extremely painful recurring abscesses that can develop anywhere hair follicles are found (there does not have to be hair growth). It is possible to experience abscesses or lesions anywhere on our body with the exception of the palms of hands, soles of feet, and red part on lips.

There are three Hurley stages used to determine severity.
There is no cure for HS and treatment options are limited however, there are several off label treatments.

HS has never been identified or classified as an autoimmune illness; meaning, to date, there is no strong evidence of or long-standing robust research supporting HS as an autoimmune illness. The past several years of research suggest HS as a possible autoinflammatory illness with innate immune involvement, however, more research is needed to determine a definitive category.

HS is primarily a follicular occlusion, as opposed to a gland disease. However, glands may be involved depending on the individual's situation and severity, i.e., tunneling.

HS is NONE of the following:

  • STD
  • Contagious
  • Rare

HS does not discriminate against race, gender, age, sexual orientation, geographic location or blood type. It is common to have other follicular skin conditions.
