What is the first
step to treating

If you think you have hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) but haven’t been diagnosed, it might be time for you to make an appointment with a dermatologist.

Why a dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions of the skin, including HS.

It’s important to see a dermatologist because HS is a skin disease that is not well known. So, chances are a dermatologist would probably have more experience treating patients with HS than another medical doctor.
