If you’re here, chances are you have or know somebody who suffers from a painful long-term condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). There are an estimated 50,000+ people living with HS in Ireland.
We are a recently formed entity, whose vision is to improve the quality of life for those living with HS in Ireland.
HS is often misdiagnosed for several years because people aren’t aware that they have the condition (that it exists), and because many first-line medical personnel don’t know about it or what to look for. HS Ireland want to encourage discussion about the condition, to help both patients (diagnosed and not yet diagnosed) and health care professionals learn more about this often debilitating condition.
This website will be a place that directs you to current, and medically reviewed information, regarding HS. In the meantime we are continuing to develop our organisation and our website, and look forward to being able to support those living with HS in Ireland more and more as time continues.
