Is that ok
Expert:  Dr. C. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, that is a good image and I agree that it looks like hidradenitis suppurativa. There are many treatment options, everything from topical scrubs, antibiotics and even laser treatments. Most dermatologists are very familiar with this condition and can help you get started on a treatment regimen and follow improvement progress. So go ahead and schedule a visit. I hope this was helpful in confirming your suspicions.
