MONTREAL, June 3, 2019 /CNW/ - June 3 – 9 is hidradentis suppurativea (HS) awareness week. HS is a chronic, systemic, immune-mediated skin disease that is often misdiagnosed. The average Canadian HS patient will see five doctors with over 17 visits spanning eight years before being properly diagnosed. HS is associated with intense pain, decreased mobility and deep-seated lesions (nodules or abscesses). HS can have both a psychological and physical impact. Learn more at Canadianskin.ca/what-is-hs
Join us June 19th for an HS Facebook Live with the Canadian Skin Patient Alliance and dermatological experts who will answer HS questions. Find out more and join the discussion using #HonestWithHS.
