Hidradenitis Supprativa vs Vulvar Abscesses

Vulvar abscess, due to MRSA
Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Hidradenitis Suppurativa is not the same skin infections that can occur in the same area of the body. If you have a small pimple that begins to develop into a boil, and perhaps gets red skin around the edge of it, this is likely a condition actually known as cellulitis, that will, if not treated with the proper antibiotics develop into a potentially dangerous infection. If the organisms are resistant staphylococcus then the infection can get into the blood stream and cause an infection of the body. Some staph infections are quite contagious as well. Hidradenitis is a chronic inflammation, that doesn't really respond to antibiotics. Hidradenitis is more likely to respond to controlling insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome and stopping smoking. It is important to get medical attention and supervision, and to do what it takes to prevent secondary infections. For the top picture intravenous antibiotics and perhaps drainage will be required, for the lower picture oral antibiotic therapy, sparingly, stop smoking, increase wellness and overall improve insulin resistance, and laser therapy are the least invasive treatments. The patient will likely never be cured, but it can be controlled. If you would like a consultation call 217-356-3736 at Women's Health Practice.
