Hidradenitis suppurativa groin is deemed to be one of the most painful and most recurrent skin diseases. A significant number of patients have resorted to various medical treatments that can help them alleviate the pain, reduce the swelling, or get rid of the inflammation. Hidradenitis suppurativa groin is highly recurrent and it takes a couple of years to be able to fully treat a case.
What causes the growth of Hidradenitis suppurativa groin?
Not everyone knows that Hidradenitis suppurativa groin is not actually caused by bad hygiene, but it is a condition of the apocrine glands. A blockage of the skin’s hair follicles is the primary cause of Hidradenitis suppurativa groin. The sweat gland openings in the affected area of the body are also blocked due to various substances that get blocked in the skin such as sweat or other skin secretions. This then causes the sweat produced by the body to be trapped underneath the skin surface. It gets forced deeper, affecting the surrounding tissue.
The worse part is that the bacteria that is usually found in the skin surface can be trapped and blocked underneath the hair follicle. The sweat, together with the bacteria, is forced back deeper into the tissues. This causes skin inflammation and infection. After this, the patient will notice boil-like lumps that turn into abscesses that contain pus.
Apocrine glands are usually found in the underarm, around the nipples, under the breasts, genital region, and in the groin. Apocrine sweat glands produce fluid secretions directly into the hair follicles. These secretions can release bad boy odor caused by bacteria. The thick, milky fluid can cause the body part to smell bad.
What is the treatment plan for Hidradenitis suppurativa groin?
There is no fast and easy way to treat cases of Hidradenitis suppurativa groin. This is a recurrent skin disease that needs the best treatment plan to ensure that the condition will not grow in other parts of the body, or to affect other tissues. Changing one’s lifestyle can be a big step towards easing the pain brought by the inflammation and swelling. Smoking cessation and maintaining one’s ideal weight are both proven to be very helpful in improving one’s condition.
There are also a number of antibiotics that are readily available in the market. Medical treatment such as topical ointment or tablets can help in the early treatment stage.
