Angiokeratoma Treatment

What is Angiokeratoma?

These are harmless lesions that appear on the scrotum in males and vulva in females. It can be one or many lesions with dark red to purple appearance. The appearance is a bit pebbled and they are hard to touch.

They don’t appear in defined shapes or sizes but can be expected up to 5mm papule. In severe cases, they are spread toward inner thighs, which is bothersome for the sufferer. 

These are stubborn lesions as they are hard to touch and don’t fade when they are squeezed or compressed.

What causes Angiokeratoma?

The reason behind their appearance is either the collection of blood vessels or dilation of vessels. Men or women of any age group, skin type or ethnicity can have these lesions, but they are common in people who are over 40 and it’s common in men.

Angiokeratoma is often confused with warts or STI whereas it is absolutely harmless and non-contagious, asymptomatic. Occasionally, they may itch or bleed if scratched or traumatised, so it is always advised to be careful while handling them. A consultation or treatment is required if there is a frequent scrotal bleeding symptom as it may lead to infection. In such cases, additional tests can be performed to rule out any clinical complications.

Treatment of Angiokeratoma

This skin condition can now be treated effectively and cosmetically at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, where a specialized physical examination is performed to rule out any other potentially malignant skin lesions (due to its scaly, dark appearance, it may mimic melanomas). CO2 laser treatment is the most preferred way to vaporise these lesions to give cosmetically satisfying results. Laser therapy leaves no post-treatment scars and downtime is really low. However, if left untreated even then they are absolutely harmless. The major reasons for opting Angiokeratoma of the scrotum treatment are stress due to appearance and anxiety fearing sexually transmitted infection.

Our Renew Skin and Health Clinic medical staff offers a competent clinical examination in order to determine the exact type present if Fabry’s syndrome is suspected, a skin biopsy and further laboratory tests may be performed.

Dr Jha was so welcoming, calming and professional. He walked me through the procedure, his extensive knowledge and experience and put me at ease about a procedure I’d been wanting to get for years. He checked in with me EVERY DAY during the healing process and offered constant support and insight. I would recommend Renew to anyone looking for the treatments they offer! A+

I have received an excellent service and treatment at the renew skin and health clinic in Leamington Spa. I had a small ugly lump on my lower lip which was diagnosed at the Clinic by Dr. Jha as a venous lake. This was treated with a special laser and within a few weeks the lump has disappeared and my lip has healed. I can highly recommend this service and treatment for complete removal of a venous lake. All the staff are very professional, full explanations on treatment and excellent follow up have been received. Thankyou Jane

I’m currently undergoing a series of laser hair removal treatments at Skin Renew in Leamington, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. The care and professionalism exhibited by the team are exceptional. Dr. Pravalika, in particular, ensures that I am comfortable throughout each procedure, providing a reassuring presence and meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend Skin Renew for anyone considering laser hair removal.

Went to get a skin growth removed by laser. Very good consultation, treatment, and attention to post-op care. They proactively got in touch after the treatment to make sure I updated them about how I was doing. Brilliant. Very happy with the result, and would go again. Also, polite and friendly. They know what they’re talking about, I’d recommend.
