HIDREADENITIS SUPPURTIVA IS INFECTION OF THE SWEAT GLANDS ESPECIALLY IN AXILLA E.THE LESIONS ARE FOLLICULITIS TO ABCESSES JOINED TOGETHER .IT IS ALSO CALLED ACNE INVERSA.I DONT THINK THERE IS NEED FOR COMPLETE BODY CHECKUP FOR THIIS CONDITION.FLUSHING ACTION OF SWEATING CAN CAUSE DECREASES IN INFECTION.
GO FOR ROUTINE INVESTIGATIONS LIKE CBP,CUE ,ESR ,RBS ,LFT ETC.YES IT MAY BE RELATED TO FOOD INTAKE .AVOID THE FOOD WHICH AGGRAVATES THE DISEASE.ANY DERMATOLOGIST CAN CURE IT.USE AZITHROMYCIN 500MG WEEKLY THRICE FOR 3-4 WEEKS AND APPLY NADOXIN CREAM IN THE MORNING AND METROKIND IN THE NIGHT
