More needs to be done to highlight and treat this horrible skin condition that robs you of your life.

I hope it raises more awareness for health proffesionals who still don't have a clue and have never heard of HS !

A dedicated treatnent centre for those of us with HS is a necessity. Few health care professionals are not aware of the condition at all...patients and health carenworkers need more information help and access to local dedicated centres.

Have suffered with this awful condition for 32 years. We need a specialised treatment centre that has doctors nurses etc that know all about HS.

As a patient who has suffered with Hs for many years I know how important it is to get timely help. If this terrible disease is caught early enough it can be manageable. However, if left it can cost the economy so much more in lost work hours, increase in benefit use and increase use of primary and secondary care. It is time HS sufferers are given the care and attention we deserve!

There's all sorts of help and support for other conditions why not this. It's as bad and painful for these sufferers please think about opening a clinic to help ease this condition.
