WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF GENITAL SKIN CONDITIONS?
There are a number of different male genital skin conditions that can affect men of all ages. These conditions may be caused by a range of factors, including poor hygiene, underlying health conditions, and certain environmental or hormonal factors. Male genital skin conditions commonly seen at the Stratum Clinics include:
- Zoon’s disease
- Lichen Sclerosus
- Lichen Planus
- Behçet’s Disease
Female genital skin conditions are relatively common and can have a variety of causes. In general, these conditions can be caused by infections, allergic reactions, or hormonal changes. While many of these conditions tend to be benign and temporary, they can cause discomfort or pain if left untreated. Female genital skin conditions commonly seen at the Stratum Clinics include:
- Vulvodynia (pain)
- Erosive lichen planus
- Lichen Sclerosus
- Vulvo-gingival disease
- Behçet’s Disease
HOW CAN GENITAL SKIN CONDITIONS BE TREATED?
Take good basic care of your genital skin. We recommend the use of simple creams to wash with in place of soap, as soap residue can irritate the area. Examples include aqueous cream or Dermol 500. Regular emollients in the form of oil or water-based moisturisers help protect the area and act as a barrier to prevent further irritation. Examples of oil-based emollients include Vaseline, Epaderm and Hydromol. Examples of water-based creams include Doublebase, Cetraben and Diprobase.
For some patients, a combination of anti-inflammatory creams or ointments might be of use. These can range in strength from mild, to very potent. Often topical antibiotics or antifungal medication will be used in addition to control inflammation and secondary infection.
While some conditions found on genital skin are also seen on other areas of the body, not all mainstream treatments can be applied to genital skin as it is delicate and some treatments can lead to discomfort and irritation. Specialist creams and ointments may need to be used for genital skin so it is important to speak to an expert for the correct diagnosis and most appropriate treatment.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Your consultant dermatologist will examine the affected skin to reach a diagnosis. Further tests may be required to confirm a diagnosis and these may include swab tests, blood tests or a skin biopsy.
Common skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and skin cancer can also affect the genital area. Treatments for these conditions may be different to treatments for other areas of the body so it is important to see a dermatologist and get the most appropriate treatment for your condition.
