Women are more vulnerable to hidradenitis suppurativa. A Danish study has found that the skin problem affects almost 4% of the women population and in USA, 2% of the total population is affected. Though the percentage is not much, in regards to other skin diseases, there are terrible consequences when symptoms of HS are ignored. Here are listed some of the potential complications of HS that needs immediate medical attention.
1.Development of Squamous cell carcinoma or anus cancer.
2.Multiple infections on the body, complicated by anemic symptoms and amyloidosis. Infections include bronchitis, meningitis, pneumonia and others.
3.Reduction of body mobility. The lower limbs function is contracted due to the presence of scarring and fibrosis.
4.Development of aggressive tumors of the lung, liver and oral cavity. Increased ratio of tumor formation is also because of wrong lifestyle in people.
6.Symptoms of arthritis begin to occur. Along with arthritis, symptoms of polyarthritis are present as well.
Moreover, in extreme cases, if the complications are not treated, it can even lead to death. The data regarding this is still unverifiable but there have been cases when the patient has died because of ignored health medicine care. The treatments of the above complications are varied, depending upon the nature of the complication.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from HS, it is better to warn them in advance that any lack of proper medication can grow into bigger problems and complicate issues. Treatment for HS is available in most skin health care centers. Usually, the treatment recommended is a mixture of lifestyle changes and medications. In case, the symptoms have complicated, in-depth tests are advised for correct diagnosis.
Needless to say, the cost of treating HS is similar to treating other skin related problems, provided you take timely medical intervention. If not, then treating HS complications is going to cost a lot more.
