Discreet treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.
Sexually transmitted diseases are typically contracted through intimate contact with an infected person. However, there are other situations in which a person may contract an STD, such as during pregnancy, childbirth, through blood transfusions, or from needles. If you are experiencing symptoms or suspect that you may have an STD, please visit a dermatologist immediately. Dr. Vikram Khanna and his team provide discreet treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, in Algonquin and Woodstock at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois.
Sexually transmitted diseases commonly treated in our dermatology clinic include:
Genital warts – A single genital wart or a cluster of these bumps may develop on the anal, genital, or oral area. Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV).
Herpes simplex – Herpes is the most common STD, because it is very contagious. Herpes often presents as sores on the face, genitals, or in the mouth.
Molluscum contagiosum – In adults, these small flesh colored bumps are usually acquired through sexual contact. They can spread rapidly, but are fairly easy to treat.
STDs are not unusual – more than half of the population will have some type of STD at some point in their lives. They are so common because, in most cases, a person carries the disease or infection for a while before any symptoms are evident. The condition is spread before you even know you have it!
While Dermatology Specialists of Illinois is happy to provide treatment for STDs, we also stress the importance of prevention. Our dermatology professionals can offer information and advice on safer sex practices to avoid STDs. If you feel you are presently at risk of infection, the doctor can arrange appropriate testing, for accurate diagnosis and effective resolution or management of symptoms.
