If you experience any of these symptoms, speak with your doctor. Early treatment can help manage the symptoms and prevent complications.

How are lymphatic problems with HS treated?
There is no cure for HS, but there are treatments that can help to control its symptoms and prevent flares. Mild cases of HS may be treated with topical creams or ointments.
