What is HS? - HS Foundation
Put plainly, HS (Hidradenitis Suppurativa) is an immune disease that causes recurring boils in the folds of your skin. Usually that means your armpits, groin, stomach, and/or buttocks. It is also known as ‘acne inversa.’ It might be painful, it might be embarrassing, and it might be emotional, but... It is NOT contagious. It is NOT an infection.
