Pointers With Dr Portela: What is Hidradenitis Suppurativa?

In this week’s Pointers with Dr Portela, the 208SkinDoc watches several TikTok videos in which creators share their experience with hidradenitis suppurativa.

Dustin Portela, DO, a board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon at Treasure Valley Dermatology in Boise, Idaho, reviews what hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is and watches videos of patients currently living with the condition.

This video is in response of a comment Portela had on a previous video, in which one of his viewers asked for more information on HS. He watches not only current patients, but also other physicians who help treat the condition. Want to learn more? Watch the video below.
