Treating the Hidradenitis Suppurativa Patient
Dr. Joslyn Kirby and Dr. Ginette Okoye stop by the Dermcast TV studio for an informative discussion about the challenges of treating the Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) patient.
“One of the things that I think a lot of our patients say is ‘my infection’ and that is a really important thing for all of us to work to replace in our vocabulary, patients’ vocabulary, and other providers’ vocabulary. This [HS] is not infection. That “I” word needs to be replaced with a different one…’Inflammation.’ This is an inflammatory disease.”
