HS Patient Stories
HS BOOK SERIES: “I WILL NOT HIDE” Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS)
Our series of book releases for #HSAWARENESS tell the stories of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) patients in vivid and personal narrative. Told by the patients themselves.
“Patients’ disease burden includes intense pain, work disability and overall poor quality of life. Although the clinical signs of the disease can often be hidden by clothing, active HS is associated with a malodorous discharge that contributes to the disabling social stigma.”
