Another treatment option we provide at Clinica London is curettage and cautery. Curettage involves surgical scraping of the area concerned, following application of local anaesthetic, and then using an electrical current to stop any bleeding. We carry this out in the procedure room. The sample is then sent to histopathology for detailed analysis.
We can also use a cream therapy to treat the affected area. This can cause some reddening of the skin for the weeks that it is being applied.

During your consultation, we will discuss the various options available depending on the size, site and area involved.
A skin biopsy is often helpful in diagnosis. This involves injecting a local anaesthetic to the area and removing or sampling the area. We then send this to the histopathology laboratory for analysis. We would then bring you back to discuss all the results and what treatment you may need.
