Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic disorder of terminal follicular epithelium in the apocrine gland-bearing areas. The long term therapy is based mainly on topical and/or systemic antibiotic use that could result in antibiotic resistance. The aim of our study was to present the real-life experience based on the efficacy and tolerability of a novel lotion containing triethyl-citrate, ethyl-linoleate, and g-peptide-10 in the treatment of mild to moderate HS that has already shown effectiveness in acne treatment. This was an open-label study on 30 patients of both sexes affected by HS. Patients were divided into two groups: 15 with Hurley I and 15 with Hurley II-III. The subjects were treated with the topical lotion, three-times-daily for eight weeks, with control at 4 (T ) and eight weeks (T ). Any other concomitant treatment (both topical and/or systemic) was avoided during study period. Improvement was observed in both Sartorius score grading system and inflammatory and noninflammatory lesion counts. The novel lotion has proved to be effective and well-tolerated topical agent alone or in association with other topical and/or systemic tratments in HS, without side effects.
