Answer

The aim of one study was to evaluate the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an adjunctive therapy in patients treated with a combination of rifampin and clindamycin. Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy was considered effective to significantly improve the efficacy of antibiotic treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa. [103]
