Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Everything You Need to Know

Maybe it’s that new exercise program you’ve been following. Or maybe you just sweat a lot. Whatever the reason, you’ve noticed a bunch of red bumps on your skin lately, especially in the folds of your armpits and the crease below your belly—areas where sweat collects. You’ve tried over-the-counter cleansers without success and scrubbing in the shower only makes matters worse. What gives?

Among the many possible explanations for your skin woes, a little-known condition called hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) should be on your radar. This skin disorder isn’t super common—an estimated three million Americans (about one percent of the population) are living with HS. Of those, less than one in 10 has received a medical diagnosis, according to research in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
