What is the first
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.
Need to find a dermatologist?

If you don’t have a dermatologist––and depending on your health insurance plan––you may need to get a referral from a general practitioner. A dermatologist should be able to provide the HS support you need.
