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.
