Genital Lesions
Q & A

What Are Genital Lesions?

Genital lesions include any sore, ulcer, or skin growth that develops on your genitals. Genital skin problems are common and affect both men and women.

You may find these lesions embarrassing and they can interfere with your intimate relationships and affect your self-esteem.

Northstar Dermatology is a full-service dermatology practice with a team of experienced board-certified dermatologists who can diagnose and treat your genital lesion with care and compassion.

What Causes Genital Lesions?
You can develop genital lesions from many causes, ranging from an infection to an underlying skin disorder. Common causes of genital lesions include:

  • Herpes
  • Genital warts
  • Syphilis
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Lichen simplex
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Granuloma inguinale
  • Lymphogranuloma venereum

Though you can develop genital lesions from a range of causes, STDs are the most common cause. STDs are prevalent among sexually active men and women and require proper treatment to prevent further spreading and long-term health complications.
What Are Genital Lesion Symptoms?
Symptoms of your genital lesions may vary depending on the type. Common symptoms include:

  • Painful sores or ulcers
  • Genital lumps and bumps
  • Itching or burning sensations
  • Abnormal genital discharge
  • Pain during intercourse

Any skin abnormality, no matter its location, requires a medical evaluation. If you have genital lesions, Northstar Dermatology can provide the diagnosis and care you need to alleviate symptoms and prevent further health complications.
How Are Genital Lesions Treated?
Northstar Dermatology takes an individualized approach to care and develops personalized treatment plans for the management of genital lesions based on the type of lesions you have and your symptoms.

Treatment may include:

  • Removal of the lesion
  • Over-the-counter pain medications
  • Antibiotics
  • Antiviral medication
  • Disease-specific medication
  • Topical anesthetics

For some causes of genital lesions, like herpes, there is no cure. However, Northstar Dermatology provides antiviral medication to minimize outbreaks and talks to you about safe sex practices to prevent transmission of the common STD.

Your dermatologist at Northstar Dermatology reviews the details of your treatment plan during your consultation so you know what to expect. Follow-up care may be required depending on the diagnosis.
