Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteThose living with boils and growths known as hidradenitis suppurativa can now turn to a Tampa dermatologist for relief. Dr. Seth Forman has been successfully treating the painful inflammatory condition with a variety of therapies and has recently added two clinical trials to his dermatology practice.

“Between the clinical trials and our advanced treatment options, we are making strides against hidradenitis suppurativa,” says Forman.

A chronic inflammatory disease, hidradenitis suppurativa occurs deep in the skin where main sweat glands are located, such as the groin and armpits. The painful skin condition, which is considered a severe form of acne, usually appears after the individual goes through puberty and can last for years.

The Tampa dermatologist has used traditional treatments for the skin condition, including antibiotics and surgery. But Forman has been using more aggressive therapies, like TNF-alpha inhibitors, to treat certain cases of hidradenitis suppurativa.

Forman is also hosting two clinical trials at the Forman Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute in Carrollwood.

“We’re able to help many individuals living with the chronic pain and discomfort of hidradenitis suppurativa,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “The more we know about the condition, the better we will get at treating and managing it.”
