Hidradenitis Suppurativa or HS causes inflamed painful and swollen lesions in body areas where hair grows, such as the armpits, groin, anal regions and areas when skin often rubs together including around the breasts. These lesions usually get infected causing pus-filled pockets to form under the skin that eventually turn into hard lumps that produce a constant discharge. Even once the area heals, patients usually experience significant scarring and repeat occurrences. While there is no permanent cure, there are several Hidradenitis Suppurativa treatments that help patients manage the symptoms.
