Hidradenitis Suppurativa Treatment, Causes, and Symptoms
About Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a non-contagious, recurrent skin condition or disease. Treatments for HS range from medical-grade antibiotics to clinical-quality topical ointments. Hidradenitis suppurativa typically manifests as a progression from single boil-like, pus-filled abscesses or lesions, or hard sebaceous lumps, to painful, severe, deep-seated and often inflamed clusters of lesions with chronic seepage (suppuration) involving significant scarring. Patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa are often misdiagnosed by medical experts. It is difficult to treat, and currently there is no known cure.
CAUSES OF HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA
Hidradenitis Suppurativa develops when a patient’s hair follicle becomes blocked or inflamed. Medical doctors are not sure what causes the blockage or inflammation, but they do know that Hidradenitis Suppurativa is not caused by poor hygiene. Additionally, Hidradenitis Suppurativa is not caused by infection and cannot be transmitted from person to person sexually or otherwise. Certain factors like metabolic syndrome, hormones, irregular immune system responses, excess weight, smoking, and genetics all seem to play a role in whether or not patients develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa, but experts are unsure how large of a role any one of these factors plays exactly.
There are other risk factors which seem to increase a patient’s likelihood to develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa as well. The factors include:
Sex - Statistically speaking, female patients are more likely to develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa than male patients are.
Smoking - It appears that smoking tobacco increases a patient’s chance of developing Hidradenitis Suppurativa lesions.
Age - Patients are most likely to develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa between the ages of 20 and 29. It can develop earlier or later, but that’s the most common age range where patients develop the condition.
Family history - As previously mentioned, genetics seems to play a role in whether or not someone is likely to develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa. If there is a family medical history of Hidradenitis Suppurativa there is a higher chance the patient could develop the condition as well.
Having other conditions - Patients who have other conditions such as arthritis, severe acne, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, metabolic syndrome or diabetes are more likely to develop Hidradenitis Suppurativa. Obesity also increases a patient’s chance of having Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
SYMPTOMS OF HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA
Hidradenitis Suppurativa tends to look a lot like acne. The main difference between Hidradenitis Suppurativa and acne deals with location and what happens as the condition worsens. Symptoms of Hidradenitis Suppurativa include:
- Blackheads (double-barreled blackheads are very common)
- Red bumps
- Pea-sized lumps or lesions
- Tenderness, pain, and discomfort
- Tunnels or tracts under the skin
- Unpleasant odor
TREATMENT OF HIDRADENITIS SUPPURATIVA
A hidradenitis diagnosis can come based on severe symptoms or more mild symptoms. If the disease becomes too severe, Hidradenitis Suppurativa treatments could include carbon dioxide laser surgery or other ongoing surgical procedures. Antibiotics taken orally can be beneficial, and medical-grade topical ointments can be another helpful Hidradenitis Suppurativa treatment. Hidradenitis suppurativa patients with severe symptoms are constantly looking for treatment options.
