Acne Inversa

by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

A chronic inflammatory skin disease, diaphoretic sweat adenitis, afflicts thousands of people, most of whom do not even know the name of this pathological condition.

Dermatologists call this condition “reverse acne”, as this skin condition is characterized by inflammatory areas, usually in the armpits, groin, buttocks and submandibular area.

A number of clinical signs are associated with diffuse sweat adenitis, ie the appearance of nodules and / or abscesses, fistulas and scars. These make the condition painful and affect the lives of patients with diaphoretic sweat adenitis.

Diagnosis can be difficult, but dermatologists are trained to recognize the difference between diaphoretic sweat adenitis and other skin conditions. Patients who experience symptoms of diaphoretic sweating adenitis should consult a dermatologist.

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
