STDs Symptoms

By on September 11th, 2017

The topic of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is an unpleasant one. Also known as sexually transmitted infections (STI) and venereal diseases (after Venus, the Roman goddess of love), the reported cases of STDs symptoms have been at epidemic numbers for years.

AIDS is a very frightening fact, and unfortunately it is only one of many STDs out there for adult contacts. The major publicity surrounding AIDS has left us slightly more ignorant about other STDs, which may not be deadly but do pose wider threats. The major problem with any STD is its sneaky capability to go unnoticed. The symptoms can range from chancre sores, to painful urination and discharge, to flu-like aches and pains. Many men and women carry STD bacterium or viruses for years without visible STDs symptoms, and unknowingly pass them on to their adult contacts sexual partners.

Here is an overview of STD symptoms and treatments so that you’re a little more well-informed on how to protect yourself and your partner.

Genital herpes is generally known as a common STD that has a widespread effect on adult contacts worldwide. Signs of herpes are bleeding ulcerations that are highly communicable, which affects both men and women. It is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, but one can catch the disease from other sources as well.

It can be contracted from touching contaminated items like towels, underwear and toilet seats. One can also get it through kissing and in rare cases through oral sex adult contacts.

The infection can be transmitted in this manner because this particular virus is capable of staying alive outside its human host for whole minutes, thus we should not be so trusting when it comes to hygiene, specifically in the use of public facilities like restrooms.

A large number of the infected individuals do not show any STDs symptoms of the infection at all, which makes it doubly dangerous. The person unknowingly becomes a living and breathing carrier of the disease, infecting everyone that he comes in contact with. This is how a large number of people get the disease year after year. It is either the person ignores the symptoms or none appear at all.

Incubation period of the virus is between three to seven days after the exposure. Usually, the first infection is violent, severe and it has extended evolution, or it can present no STDs symptoms at all, depending on the reactivity of the patient and the individual immune response.

Genital herpes, as the name of the disease aptly denotes, affects the genital area where small watery blisters will appear, then later develop into open sores, which could ooze liquid and blood. Before the blisters appear, the person would feel a burning and itching sensation and sometimes, pus pockets appear.

Blue waffle disease, this is a new STD that can causes women and men. Sometime it will show some swollen and blue color signs in women.

After several days, the blisters will break and become open, throbbing sores. The wounds can expand and then become like boils covered with a skin layer and develop to cover a large area of the skin.

As mentioned before, this affliction affects adult contacts of both men and women, regardless of their preference of sexual activity. People prone to anal sex can get lesions in the anus area. Women, on the other hand can experience severe pain if the virus lodges at the urethra level. Stinging and burning feelings will be part of her daily life until she decides to get treatment for her condition.

Some of the symptoms of the STD infection are headache, colds and fever. The lesions can develop up to the hip, buttocks and upper thigh. The infection can be treated with anti-viral medicines, which will arrest the development of the virus and the severity of the infection.

It is sad to note that to this date, no treatment has been developed to completely eradicate the herpes virus from the human body. As it is, the herpes virus can only be controlled.

Extended treatment in time has proven to be effective for preventing the frequency of the recurrence of the genital herpes, as well as for reducing the infection level. The anti-viral treatment must be proceeded for up to fourteen days, and if the lesions of the skin do not heal after this period of time, the treatment can be extended for seven more days.

What really counts is seeing a doctor in the matter of STDs Symptoms and not leaving the condition unattended, and, most important thing of all, protection for preventing the contamination of other adult contacts with your STDs Symptoms.
