In brief: Hidradenitis
The best treatment I have have seen is with a group of drugs called biologics.
I have used Enbrel (etanercept) and Humira with great success. The problems with these medications is that they are expensive and they are off label. Thus, i had to write the insurance company to get the drug approved.
