Hidradenitis Suppurativa

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

In Hanover, Dr. Michael Campbell is treating a severe form of acne.

This is a chronic and long-lasting disease that affects a type of sweat gland. People who have it develop painful red bumps or sores in the armpits, groin and anal area.

This occurs when sweat glands and hair follicle openings become blocked. It is unknown why this happens but poor hygiene is not a cause. It is not contagious.

More severe cases may require topical or oral antibiotics. If you have any of these symptoms see a doctor.
