Hidradenitis Suppurativa: What It Is & How to Treat It

Painful bumps, abscesses, and tunnels under the skin of the armpits and along the groin can be uncomfortable, and unsightly. But what is the cause? Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a persistent skin condition caused by frequent skin irritation, predominantly in areas where skin friction or chafing occurs, such as the armpits, groin and buttocks. This chronic condition can affect a person’s well-being, both physically and emotionally.

HS presents a continuous challenge for patients and healthcare providers, requiring comprehensive and sustained management. Current treatment options for HS include antibiotics, anti-

inflammatory medications, and, in severe cases, surgical interventions. However, finding a definitive and lasting solution remains elusive, underscoring the critical need for innovative approaches.

At Velocity Clinical Research, we acknowledge the urgency of addressing HS and are actively seeking volunteers for clinical trials dedicated to finding better solutions. Eligible participants may have the opportunity to receive investigational medications and, in some instances, FDA-approved treatments at no cost. Additionally, eligible participants may be able to receive compensation, making it an accessible and impactful way for the community to play a part in advancing HS research.

Together, let’s uncover a brighter future for those impacted by HS. To discover more about ongoing and upcoming clinical trials at Velocity and how you can contribute to progress in HS research, visit VelocityClinicalTrials.com.
