Avatar n tn The ideal treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) should provide a high likelihood of cure with a low recurrence rate, as well as minimal inconvenience and loss of work time. Medical management is recommended in early stages, whereas surgery should be performed as early as possible after the formation of abscesses, fistulas, scars, and sinus tracts (see Surgical Care).

Avatar n tn Hi I am 18 years old....I recently researched that I have Hidradenitis suppurativa. I went to my dermatologist but she didn't have any answers to my problem. I started getting these bumps on my inner thighs since I was 13 yrs old. now these bumps would swell and they pain soo bad. After ahwhile pus would come out.then it would leave a scar on my thighs. Please I need some answers on how can I get rid of if. It's embrassing.
1525323 tn?1291497268 I was diagnosed with this problem about 6 or 7 years ago. I spent plenty of afteroons with the dermatologist. I have had scrubs, creams, antibiotics and anti-inflammatories prescribed for me, and nothing works. I have since stopped seeing the doctor because the bills were getting too expensive, and it these useless prescriptions were a waste of a lot of money.

Avatar n tn Does anyone know about Hidradenitis suppurativa? My symptoms of the swollen red sore puss filled bumps in my armpit resemble the symptoms of this illness? Has anyone ever had this or know of someone who has?
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. Arti Sharma, Thank you so much that you spent your precious time reading question. I'm on isotretinoin. Unfortunately, I used a little bit tetracycline ointment 1% on my lip. After 5 minutes, I wiped it. This story happened just one time while I'm on isotretinoin. I am scared that the amount of tetracycline ointment 1% which I applied a little bit ointment on my lip (although just 1 time while taking isotretinoin) can interact with isotretinoin.
Avatar f tn I have had multiple bumps on my groin for years now. I'm worried I might have Hidradenitis Suppurativa but I'm not sure. I'm only 16 and haven't been to a doctor because I don't know what to say and I would be devastated if I got diagnosed with HS seeing as it gets WORSE. This is what one of the bumps looks like: http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa62/sininenenkeli/hurt017.jpg http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa62/sininenenkeli/hurt025.
1041243 tn?1375230520 I would like to suggest a category, possibly under dermatology, for Hidradenitis Suppurativa (also known as H.S.,, Verneuil's disease, etc). This is a skin disease that is painful an can be debilitating, affecting up to 4% of the population. It causes painful abscesses/cysts/boils in the underarm, breast, buttocks, and groin areas. It is often misdiagnosed and often goes undiagnosed for years (for example, I've had it for 14 years and was just formally diagnosed 2 years ago).
Avatar f tn I am a 25 year old female. I am on isotretinoin for acne. But recently my general physician prescribed vitamin B-complex supplements for other health problems. Is it safe to take vitamin B-Complex capsules with isotretinoin? I am not any other medication.
Avatar f tn Has anyone taking isotretinoin?.i know there is a risk ov depression,I'm on my 6th day today ov taking them and don't feel too great.i feel quite low but really agitated,can't switch off and can't keep still.do u think its because ov these meds or just a coincidence?
Avatar n tn I am in stage 3 hidradenitis and I was approved the first time I tried for SS benefits, as well as private disability insurance. The main key that I have found is documentation. Even when I didn't need a boil lanced by the doctor, I went in and had them chart it, sometimes take pictures, etc. It helped a lot.
