Dermatology is a field of medicine which deals with skin diseases. Venereology focuses on diagnosing and treating sexual organs diseases. Many patients are not aware that these specializations have a lot in common and every dermatologist is also a venereologist.
A dermato-venereologist must be consulted when you notice disturbing skin changes, e.g. pimples, spots, itching, peeling, ulceration, or reddening which remains visible for a long time and does not subside after basic treatment. The dermato-venereologist is also responsible for diagnosing skin cancers. You should visit this specialist if you notice any skin birthmarks changes. Also an unsuitable secretion or smell from sexual organs must be considered symptoms which should force you to arrange an appointment with a venereologist.
The most common skin and sexual organs diseases are caused by bacteria (gonorrhea, syphilis, Chlamydia trachomatis), viruses (HIV, HPV, WZW, HTVL, genital herpes), fungi (mycosis, candidiasis) or parasites (trichomoniasis, scabies and other). The basic dermatological treatment of these diseases is pharmacology.
If you wish to have a precise and credible diagnosis as well as effective treatment, arrange an appointment with a dermatologist in one of Rehasport clinics – in Poznań or Gdańsk.
