Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your scarring issues from hidradenitis supporativa. In most instances the best chance at clearing scars and active sources of infection is through direct excision of the tissue. See a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation.

There are many options for scars including scar revision with surgery and treatment with lasers, microneedling and PRP afterward. Please see a board certified dermatologist for evaluation and treatment. Best, Dr. Emer
