Select the ways in which HS has recently impacted you:

Questions to ask the dermatologist:

  1. Can you help me understand the inflammation that's happening inside my body that may be contributing to my HS?
  2. Which stage of HS am I in—Stage I (mild), Stage II (moderate), or Stage III (severe)? What does that mean for me?
  3. How will I know if my symptoms have gotten worse?
  4. What should I be on the lookout for beyond my HS symptoms?
  5. How can I ensure I’m getting symptom relief while also managing my HS over time?

Where does it show up?

HS usually develops in areas that grow hair, and where skin rubs against skin. It can also occur where sweat glands are located. Check off the areas where you’re having symptoms and review with your dermatologist.
