Hidradenitis suppurativa is characterized by lesions and draining sinus tracts in intimate locations. Although often overlooked, the selection of an effective, comfortable dressing can dramatically improve patients’ lives. We aimed to review dressings based on management of post-surgical and non-surgical wound dressings. We reviewed the characteristics and types of dressings used in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa and addressed recommendations for dressing post-surgical and non-surgical wounds.
