What do sexually transmitted diseases have to do with dermatology?

Many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit symptoms that affect your skin, so it’s not surprising that many men and women first learn they have an STD when they visit their dermatologist to find answers about changes in their skin.

Herpes simplex virus

This disease leads to painful sores on your mouth or genitals. Herpes is caused by a virus, and while there is no cure, there are ways to manage the disease and reduce the risk of passing it along to a partner.

Genital warts

These skin growths are caused by several strains of human papillomavirus. Most cases aren’t painful, but genital warts can be unsightly.


This disease is very common, and it can spread to your eyes if you touch an infected area and then rub your eyes or the surrounding skin.


This infection starts with a small, painless sore at the spot where the infection entered your body, usually on your genitals or rectum. Left untreated, a rash can spread all over your body, and if still untreated, it can cause damage to your internal organs later, with potentially life-threatening consequences.

Many STDs can cause a rash, sores, or other symptoms in the visible portion of your skin. It’s important to come in for a diagnostic exam any time you notice changes. STD screening is fast and straightforward, and treatment can begin the same day.

Keep Yourself and Your Partner Safe by Getting STD Testing

STD tests are specific to each type of infection which is found by using different types of results. You and your specialist can decide which test makes more sense to you depending on your medical history and visible symptoms. During your visit to the clinic be honest with the doctor and nurses so that they can help you decide which tests are most suitable.

We want to offer you the right type of treatment and care to our patients according to their situations.

We at Safe Health PC, Lansing and Mt. Pleasant are committed to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of our patients.

We also recommend visiting our specialist in routine to get regular checkups and learn about the ways you and your spouse can protect yourselves through safer sex in the future.

How are STDs treated?

Your treatment path depends on the type of infection and how far it has progressed. Many STDs caused by parasites or bacteria can be cleared up with a simple course of antibiotics. In other cases, antiviral drugs can help reduce outbreaks and manage the condition.

Numerous new medications can help treat sexually transmitted disease. Even for those infections that cannot be cured, proper treatment can help keep you healthy and reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others.

How can I prevent sexually transmitted diseases?

The only way to completely avoid STDs is to refrain from all sexual activity. The next best level of protection is to remain in a mutually monogamous relationship in which both partners have been tested for STDs.

Using male or female condoms can reduce your risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease, but it’s important to know that some infections are spread through simple skin-to-skin contact, which includes skin that cannot be covered with a condom.

In the case of HPV, vaccines are available that can bring your risk level down to nearly zero. In fact, pediatricians are vaccinating large numbers of boys and girls before their first sexual contact to reduce the spread of HPV in younger generations.

If you have questions or concerns about STD testing or treatment, don’t hesitate to schedule an exam with Dr. Fatteh online or by phone at your earliest convenience. He offers compassionate, non-judgmental care with the sole focus of preserving your health and wellness.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!
I would definitely recommend Safe Health PC. I got my Botox treatment done from this clinic and it was perfect. Dr. Fatteh gave me all the information regarding the procedure. The procedure was a success and the results were amazing. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
