Genital Issues

At Skin Care Network we recognize that it is important for patients to have their skin and genital problems recognized and treated appropriately.  Patients can come to a clinic staffed by both Dermatologists interested in skin diseases of the male and female genitalia and Specialists for sexual health and HIV infection. They will work together to ensure that you are seen and managed by the most appropriate specialist for your needs.

We treat all ages

Male and female Genital skin disease is common in all ages. Children suffer from problems such as eczema, pigment changes, red areas, areas of ulceration, molluscum contagiosum and tight or inflamed foreskins. These can often be rapidly controlled or cured with creams or other simple techniques.

Genital skin disease can be worrying and embarrassing. We treat a wide variety of genital skin problems including inflammatory diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo fungal and yeast infections, lichen planus and lichen sclerosis et atrophicus. Or there may be a simple skin change in pigment you don’t like or find embarrassing. Cysts, moles, ingrowing hairs, pigment changes as well as foreskin problems are all commonly seen and treated.

The elderly often are affected by problems such as groin rashes, atrophic vaginitis, inflammation  or ulceration under the foreskin as well as premalignant and malignant changes in the genitalia. We also treat genital skin infections such as warts and molluscum contagiosum, as well as premalignant and malignant skin disease of the genitalia.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

We offer an alternative, confidential service with prompt results for the following services:

Sexual health specialists are skilled and experienced with all areas of sexual health. All information is strictly confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone outside the clinic without your consent.

Treatments

As Dermatologists we are skilled in using topical creams to minimize discomfort. We offer a variety of different techniques for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum and genital warts, including cryosurgery, curette and cautery, and laser ablation.

Precancerous and cancerous genital lesions can be easily and effectively treated using a variety of different techniques from topical creams, photodynamic therapy, simple surgical techniques to advanced surgical techniques including Mohs surgery.

We offer HPV sub-typing and screening for STIs. As trained Dermatologists we are able to recognize the more worrying consequences of HPV infection including bowenoid papulosis as well as pre-malignant and malignant changes associated with HPV infection. With early diagnosis and treatment these common diseases can be eradicated with the use of creams, cryosurgery (freezing), photodynamic therapy, simple surgical techniques or Mohs surgery.

With good dermatological care and treatment these problems can be improved or eradicated, leading to restoration of normal function
