If you suffer from small lumps under your skin or even draining open sores, especially in areas where the skin rubs together, you should get evaluated for Hidradenitis Suppurativa. This skin condition causing so much discomfort may respond to treatment from Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc.

What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a skin disorder that often starts after puberty. It is rare, but chronic, although it may disappear and then reoccur spontaneously over a lifetime. This often painful skin condition causes little bumps underneath the skin. These lumps will appear in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as in the armpits, under the breasts, between the buttocks and in the groin areas.

These lumps are slow-healing and can always return. Over time, they can lead to burrows or tunnels under the skin and can cause scarring. This condition can last a lifetime, leading to great pain and emotional distress for those afflicted. Fortunately, hidradenitis suppurativa can be treated with medication or surgical intervention.

Can Hidradenitis Suppurativa Be Treated?

While the condition can be mild, others suffer from more serious complications. This condition may first appear as blackheads or small lumps. These lumps may break open and ooze pus or blood, with a foul odor.

Treatment for hidradenitis suppurativa is best provided by a dermatologist who specializes in the condition. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc., Dr. Jamie Weisman is our local expert. In addition, Dr. Weisman advises professional societies, educators and even pharmaceutical companies on the disease, which affects men and women.

Dr. Weisman is always excited to learn more about treating this condition, as it can take a major toll on individuals physically and emotionally. She has been part of many clinical trials that test new therapies for hidradenitis suppurativa, including antibiotics, immune modulators and hormone modulators.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
