Venereal Disease

Venereal diseases are commonly referred to as sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs). They're spread by skin-to-skin contact in the genital area. Venereal disease can affect anyone who is sexually active. Common venereal diseases include:

  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • Human Papillomavirus Infection (HPV)
  • Genital Herpes
  • HIV/AIDS

Venereal diseases often impact skin health by causing warts and lesions on the skin in the affected area. Depending on your diagnosis, your dermatologist can help you develop a treatment plan to relieve some of the discomfort and restore your skin to a healthier appearance. If you're concerned about treating the effects of venereal disease on skin, make an appointment with your dermatologist today.
