Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by abscess formation and mutilating scar formation in the body folds. The burden of disease is high for both patient and treating physician. In dermatological daily practice, proper patient education and formation of a trustful physician–patient relationship are of highest importance. HS patients are treated both conservatively and surgically mostly by dermatologists, which requires extensive knowledge of the pathogenesis, trigger factors, comorbidities and treatment options. Interdisciplinary collaboration with other disciplines is still underdeveloped. New physical treatments (laser, radiofrequency, intense pulsed light [IPL]), topical and systemic therapies enable good ambulatory long-term management for all HS stages.
