Detailed Description

The goal of this study is to get a better understanding of the skin condition, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and to find out how the disease affects quality of life. The investigators will utilize a compilation of validated questionnaires including the Beck Depression Inventory form, Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), Skindex, SF-36 health survey, the Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire- short form (Q-LES-Q-SF) and the Employment/Productivity Health Economic Questionnaire as well as other relevant clinical data. The investigators will additionally collect a modified Hidradenitis Suppurativa Lesion, Area, and Severity Index (HS-LASI) (or other appropriate disease severity score as determined by the team) from the physician of each enrollee. The investigators hope this information will help improve treatment for this skin condition.
