Could Your Symptoms Be Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)?

When pimple-like bumps or boils start showing up in areas where skin rubs together, you may question what’s going on with your body. Take the quiz to see if your symptoms may be HS—a chronic inflammatory skin condition that may be linked to the immune system.

Please note: This quiz is not meant to diagnose patients with HS. After completing this quiz, please talk to your dermatologist about your answers as soon as possible.

Think you may have HS?
Take the symptom quiz.

Have you experienced tender, swollen bumps, either on or under your skin, that may produce foul-smelling liquid and scarring?

In the last 6 months, have these bumps reappeared 3 or more times?

Do these symptoms appear near your inner thighs, armpits, chest, groin, or buttocks?

Have your physical symptoms, such as sores, wounds, or pain, impacted your lifestyle or mental outlook?

Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with HS or experienced HS symptoms?
