For women in these groups, the RCOG (2012) guidelines recommend that 3 g intravenous benzylpenicillin should be given as soon as possible after the onset of labour and then 1.5 g given 4-hourly until delivery. Women with an allergy to benzylpenicillin should have 900 mg of clindamycin intravenously every 8 hours.

been diagnosed with moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa at least 1 year earlier and who were intolerant to, or whose disease had not responded to, oral antibiotics. Moderate to severe disease was defined as people with Hurley stage II or III hidradenitis suppurativa in at least 1 affected anatomic region, and a total abscess and inflammatory nodule (AN) count greater than 3. Neither of the trials recruited people from the UK. Treatment with oral or topical antibiotics during the trial (...) that there is no standard of care and no NICE guidance; there were no medical treatments specifically licensed for hidradenitis suppurativa until adalimumab received its marketing authorisation. The committee noted the results of a survey of the UK Dermatology Trials Network and British Association of Dermatologists, presented in the company submission, which showed that the most commonly used treatments in the UK – after topical antibiotics – are oral antibiotics; first tetracycline, and then a combination

It frequently results in physical scarring and may cause psychological distress.

Some studies have suggested promising results for light therapies.To explore the effects of light treatment of different wavelengths (...) greatly in wavelength, dose, active substances used in photodynamic therapy (PDT), and comparator interventions (most commonly no treatment, placebo, another light intervention, or various topical treatments).
