Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful, long-term skin condition that causes abscesses and scarring on the skin. The exact cause of hidradenitis suppurativa is unknown, but it occurs near hair follicles where there are sweat glands, usually around the groin, bottom, breasts and armpits.
THE PAIN IS TO THE CORE, TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS DEBILITATING. AS A RESULT, I LEARNT TO LANCE MY LESIONS.
WE REALLY NEED MORE DISEASE AWARENESS AND SUPPORT.
A PERSON LIVING WITH HS, SHARED
