Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are diseases passed on to others by sexual contact. While many STDs can be treated they can cause other problems. For instance, the Human papilloma virus (HPV) can lead to cervical cancer. You can seek treatment through your GP, who will refer you to your local genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic. However, they will treat the immediate condition and not test for cancerous cells.
Recurrent herpes infection is often worrying, painful and embarrassing. With good dermatological control we are able to control these troublesome symptoms. In addition we are able to offer screening and treatment for other common STDs.
We treat a wide variety of genital skin problems including Herpes simplex virus and Human papilloma virus infections (HPV). We offer a variety of different techniques for the treatment of genital warts, including cryosurgery, curette and cautery, and laser ablation.
We offer HPV sub-typing and screening for STDs. As trained Dermatologists we are able to recognize the more worrying consequences of HPV infection including bowenoid papulosis and pre-malignant changes associated with HPV infection. With early diagnosis and treatment these common diseases can be eradicated with the use of creams, cryosurgery or photodynamic therapy.
At Skin Care Network we provide a confidential, discrete and pleasant environment to diagnose and treat genital skin disease and sexually transmitted disease.
