Austin, TX — Hidradenitis suppurativa is a rare skin condition in which small, painful lumps develop under the skin. It can cause long-lasting problems, so early diagnosis is key. Because the disease often affects young people and mimics various conditions, it can be difficult to diagnose.
Recently in a WebMD video, Roopal Bhatt, MD, a board-certified dermatologist at U.S. Dermatology Partners Four Points in Austin, Texas, explained common misconceptions about hidradenitis, why it’s difficult to diagnose and symptoms to look for.
