Symptoms:  Nothing
Doctor

A:   Hello thanks for your health query on ATD.

Yes you can go to beach as unlike swimming pool the area is vast. But why do not get it removed by cautery so as to avoid cross infection to your partner . Also there will be no or very less chances of spread to other areas of body. Consult your dermatologist.

Good wishes
