Sexually Transmitted Diseases

What is Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) and Viral Warts?


Sexually Trasnmitted Disease is transmitted through unprotected sexual activity which may be between a carrier or non-carrier or even both. Likewise for viral warts, it can develop on or around the genitals and its appearance such as small bumps or fleshy growths. Though in such cases sexual activity may not be the cause but other means such as sharing of needles and breastfeeding, which is depends on the disease. Symptoms may vary as well.




Procedures


Treatment varies on type of STDs that is involved. Bacteria STDs Usually, our urologist will prescribed antibiotics to treat bacterial infections and require you to finish taking it. Viral STDs Not for any antibiotics for such cases. While most viral infections have no cure, some can clear on their own. In many cases, treatment options are to relieve symptoms and reduce the risk of transmission rather than cure. For example, medications are available to reduce the frequency and severity of herpes outbreaks or treatment to help stop the progression of HIV. Furthermore, antiviral drugs can lower the risk of transmitting HIV to someone else. Other STDs Some STDs are caused by neither viruses nor bacteria but by other small organisms such as:

  • pubic lice
  • trichomoniasis
  • scabies
Such types of STDs are usually treatable with oral or topical medications, hence ask our urologists for more information about your condition and treatment options.
