Abstract: Hidradenitis Suppurativa is a chronic dermatological condition affecting the teenage population of the world. The disease is persistent and of recurring type. It is characterized by inflammation, pus accumulation and scarring of the dermis caused by the destruction of apocrine ducts. However, the aetiology and genetic factors are not very prominent yet, and little research has been done to study and resolve this pathological condition. No prophylaxis of this was known to date. The modern medical approach solely depends on surgical excision and drainage complemented with or exclusively and conservatively using antibiotics like Vancomycin, Mupirocin, Clindamycin, etc. This research deals with an experimental approach using the principles of Ayurveda and immunology to cure Hidradenitis Suppurativa conservatively. The regular use of Sitali Vayu Pranayama was immensely successful in clinical terms. Aspects and approaches, along with the case history, have been described in this finding.
