Pimples, moles or eczema are treated regularly by dermatologists. But those who went to look for venereal diseases were also the first. Guest to the show Without appointment On Europe 1, dermatologist Flora Fisher lifts the mask on venereology, a category often unknown to patients.
Venereology is by no means a venous study and the study of respected individuals is also minimal. This is a key segment of dermatitis: Venereal diseases are none other than sexually transmitted infections (STIs). And you should turn to your dermatologist when the first symptoms appear.
According to dermatologist Flora Fisher, there is no danger that we will turn to these practitioners. She explains: “Initially, dermatitis relied heavily on syphilography, i.e. syphilis and venereal diseases.” Today, she says, “the study of venereal disease is completely integrated with dermatitis.”
STIs are caused by viruses, bacteria, yeast, protozoa or ectoparasites. The well-known ones include HIV, chlamydia and itching.
When should you contact?
But it is not uncommon for patients not to know where to turn. Sexually transmitted diseases are mainly manifested by lesions of the skin. There may also be discharge or urination or vaginal discharge. Clearly, if your private parts are itchy and pimples appear, then it is advisable to consult a dermatologist.
Can STIs be treated?
After a few additional tests, a dermatologist-venereologist can make a diagnosis. And it all depends after all. Some sexually transmitted diseases, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, can be treated with appropriate antibiotics. On the other hand, the practitioner can limit the symptoms only in relation to HIV or herpes. However, condom use is still the best way to prevent venereal disease.
