Now it is well established and believed to be a entity that can be controlled. A proper assessment to determine the severity of HS is mandatory. Most of the patients do well if they stick to the recommendations. Kindly see a dermatologist for a treatment plan. Comorbidities should be addressed seriously.

Dear patient,It is possible Hidradenitis suppurativa develops when the person's immune system overreacts.HS begins in the hair follicles due to clogging of bacteria just like pimples.it could be possible that the immune system is reacting to the clogged bacteria infested hair follicles.keeping this in mind,you should also discuss laser hair reduction treatment which actually aims at destroying the hair follicles itself.it will help in remission.its worth trying it.hope this helps.

As my esteemed colleague Dr MK Agarwala has said Hidradenitis is a chronic illness and can be kept under control with medications and lifestyle changes. You can consult a qualified dermatologist in your area and ask them about medicines called as Biologics which are likely to give a long term remission. She will need detailed examination and evaluation whether she is a suitable for this treatment.
