Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic skin disease, which appears as a boil-like abscess in the apocrine gland-bearing areas, such as the armpits, breasts and groin. This recurrent inflammatory, and often painful disease is often overlooked, as not much is known of the actual cause.

The Hidradenitis Suppurativa Trust are the only UK charity dedicated to the raising of awareness, understanding and support for this chronic, debilitating skin disorder. We aim to increase public knowledge and educate the medical profession on the symptoms, treatments and severities of HS. All profits made by us go towards achieving our goals, which we hope will eventually include the development of a cure.
