In brief: Acne Inversa
Hidradenitis suppurativa (hs), also known as 'acne inversa', is a physically, psychologically, and socially disabling disease affecting inverse areas of the body (those places where there is skin-to-skin contact - armpits, groin, breasts, etc.
), and where apocrine glands and hair follicles are found. It is non-contagious and recurrent; but presents, with boils or painful lesions.
