Condylomas/Genital Venereal Warts and HPV Typing
Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are common viruses that can cause warts. 30 out of the 100 types of HPV that affect humans come with the potential risk of cancer. Our doctors carry out the required tests and treatment for the removal of warts, and for the detection of cancer.
Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV)
The herpes simplex virus (HSV) can cause blisters and sores almost anywhere on the skin. These sores usually occur either around the mouth and nose, or on the genitals and buttocks, and can periodically reappear. For chronically ill people and newborn babies, the viral infection can be serious, but rarely fatal.
While there are no vaccines to treat or prevent HSV, our specialists prescribe oral medication to soothe symptoms, treat an outbreak or can be used for suppressing herpes recurrences.
A viral skin infection, Molluscum Contagiosum commonly appears as small, firm, raised spots on the skin, which usually form in little clusters. MC is usually painless, although some people may feel mild to moderate itchiness.
The condition is not a serious threat to health but is highly infectious. Most people are, however, resistant to the virus and do not contract the disease upon contact. Our dermatologists use a few different methods to remove the lesions including Cryotherapy, Diathermy and Curettage.
Chlamydia & Gonorrhea
A commonly contracted STD, Chlamydia often presents without symptoms. We recommend all sexually active individuals to regularly test themselves to detect and treat the disease as early as possible. Gonorrhea is another common and easily-contracted STD. Initial symptoms of the disease occur within a few days of infection and include discharge from the penis or vagina, a painful anus and discomfort whilst passing urine.
Book an appointment today to seek advice if you suspect any possible symptoms that might be a result of an STD. Early detection and treatment of STDs can be extremely effective and prevent major health complications.
