Diagnosis and management for genital skin conditions
There are a number of different conditions that can cause changes to your skin in the genital area.
And sometimes, the skin problem in the genital area is linked to a condition you may have in other parts of your body such as:
- contact/atopic dermatitis
- lichen simplex chronicus
- lichen sclerosus
- lichen planus
- precancer and cancer
- fungal infections, viruses and parasitic infestations
When you come and see us at Sexual Health North, our first step is to establish a diagnosis. That begins by taking a comprehensive medical and sexual history. Please provide a list of products and treatments that you may have used on your skin. We may have to perform a general examination looking at other parts of your body for signs of skin problems as well as a genital examination. We may have to do swabs, blood tests, and also, when necessary, perform a biopsy of the site. Once we have reached a diagnosis, we can discuss an appropriate management strategy for you.
We use our collective 20 years experience in treating a wide range of sexual health matters, to suggest a personalised treatment plan for you. And, whatever the underlying cause of your genital skin problem, you can rest assured knowing that at Sexual Health North we focus on helping you get better.
