HS Disease

Your doctor will ask you about your signs and symptoms, examine the affected skin and take your medical history.

No laboratory test is available to diagnose hidradenitis suppurativa. But if pus or drainage is present, your doctor might send a sample of the fluid to a laboratory for testing to rule out a boil infection or other skin disorders.
