Purpose

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a severe skin disease causing painful swelling and foul smelling weeping wounds in the armpits groin and under the breasts. It is a long-term condition with few effective treatments available. It is also unpredictable which treatments will be effective for which patients. Researchers have attempted to describe ?subtypes? of HS but none have been effective in predicting which patients will respond to specific treatments. Our research involves asking patients with HS to donate small samples of skin fat blood and pus to find out why certain patients develop HS and hopefully be able to give patients the most effective treatment first rather than trialling many different treatments with no guarantee which will work best.
