Assessing Pruritus in Hidradenitis Suppurativa: A Cross-Sectional Study
Pruritus (itching) is still a forgotten aspect of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and, to date, has never been adequately studied. The prevalence rate of pruritus in 211 HS patients was 57.3%.
Pruritus is a frequent but under-reported symptom in patients with HS. Its moderate to severe intensity and significant impact on daily activities have great potential to impair patients’ quality of life.
