• Hidradenitis is a chronic inflammation of the apocrine glands, a type of sweat gland found on certain parts of the body. One or more red, tender swellings (lesions) may appear and fill with pus, typically in the areas of the groin, armpits or buttocks. The lesions enlarge and often open and drain on their own. Sometimes, a doctor needs to drain them. Scarring may result. Multiple blackheads (comedones) also are present in the affected areas. The cause of this disorder isn't known. But it's considered a severe form of acne because it arises from the oil (sebaceous) glands and hair follicles. Heredity most likely plays a role. In some cases, it may be associated with inflammatory bowel disease. There's no cure for hidradenitis. Treatment is focused on managing the signs and symptoms and may include: Hot packs applied to swelling Antibiotics to treat any infections Oral retinoid medications Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling Immunosuppressant drugs Surgical drainage or removal of abscessed area Rarely, surgical removal of all involved skin followed by skin grafting
  • I know that was posted along time ago but I wanted to post also to let you know that I would be very careful when getting treated. NO BODY know anything about this and the treatments dont seem to do much and once you get so bad they want to surgery remove the area which total looks horriable and still does nothing. I currently and looking to alternitive treatments. I also plan on stating a web page and foundation that really works for a cure. My email is is intrested.
