What is the Blemish Screen?
Our Blemish Screen is suitable for anyone who has a lump, wart, blister or other blemish in the genital area. We will take a swab of your blemish to determine whether it is caused by one of the following STIs.
Which STIs are tested for?
Our Blemish Screen can detect:
- Herpes I/II (Current Infection)
- Genital Warts / HPV
These are the most common STIs which cause blemishes in the genital area.
You can add on any other STI tests to this screen at our reduced bolt-on price. These may require additional samples.
Which samples are needed?
For this screen, we will take two swabs of the suspected area. The swabs will be analysed to determine whether your current symptoms are caused by one of the STIs we test for.
