Genital herpes

Genital herpes  is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) passed on through vaginal, anal and oral sex. Most people with genital herpes infection do not know they have it. The disease is caused by two types of the herpes simplex virus (HSV): HSV-1 and HSV-2.

Many people with genital herpes have no symptoms or the symptoms are very mild so they go unnoticed or are mistaken for another skin condition. The most common symptoms of genital herpes are lesions, which appear as painful blisters in the genital area other symptoms may include:

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

Human papillomavirus or HPV HPV stands for human papillomavirus. It’s the most common sexually transmitted infection. HPV is usually harmless and goes away by itself, but some types can lead to cancer or genital warts. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are more than 200 types of HPV, 40 of which are spread through sexual contact. Most sexually active people will have some type of it during their lifetime. It’s passed through skin-to-skin contact and can affect your genitals, rectum, mouth, and throat.Most infections go away on their own without causing any signs or symptoms, but the virus remains dormant in your body and can be spread to your sexual partners.

Symptoms of Human papillomavirus

HPV may not cause symptoms at once, but they can appear years later. Some types can lead to warts, while others can cause cancer. Genital warts may appear as a small bump, cluster of bumps, or stem-like protrusions. They commonly affect the vulva in women, or possibly the cervix, and the penis or scrotum in men. They may also appear around the anus and in the groin. Genital warts caused by HPV aren’t the same as genital herpes. Other warts associated with HPV include.

Common warts – rough, raised bumps most commonly found on the hands, fingers, and elbows.

Plantar warts – described as hard, grainy growths on the feet; they most commonly appear on the heels or balls of the feet.

Flat warts – generally affect children, adolescents, and young adults; they appear as flat-topped, slightly raised lesions that are darker than normal skin color and are most commonly found on the face, neck, or areas that have been scratched.

Diagnosis

If your sexual history and current signs and symptoms suggest that you have an STI, laboratory tests can identify the cause and detect co infections you might have contracted.

Blood tests -Blood tests can confirm the diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases like herpes, hepatitis, HIV  or later stages of syphilis.

Urine samples– Some STIs can be confirmed with a urine sample.

Fluid samples – If you have active genital sores, testing fluid and samples from the sores may be done to diagnose the type of infection. Laboratory tests of material from a genital sore or discharge are used to diagnose some STIs.

ScreeningTesting for a disease in someone who doesn’t have symptoms is called screening. Most of the time, STI screening is not a routine part of health care, but there are exceptions like the screening test for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS.

Treatment and cure for Blue waffle disease

STIs caused by bacteria are generally easier to treat. Viral infections can be managed but not always cured. If you’re pregnant and have an STI, prompt treatment can prevent or reduce the risk of infection of your baby. Treatment usually consists of one of the following, depending on the infection:

Antibiotics – often in a single dose, can cure many sexually transmitted bacterial and parasitic infections, including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia and trichomoniasis. Typically, you’ll be treated for gonorrhea and chlamydia at the same time because the two infections often appear together.

Antiviral drugs-You’ll have fewer herpes recurrences if you take daily suppressive therapy with a prescription antiviral drug. Antiviral drugs lessen the risk of infection, but it’s still possible to give your partner herpes. 

Prevention of Blue waffle disease

There are many ways you can reduce your risk of getting an STI:

Know your sexual partners and limit their number—Your partner’s sexual history is as important as your own. The more partners you or your partners have, the higher your risk of getting an STI.

Use a latex condom— Using a latex condom every time you have vaginal, oral, or anal sex decreases the chances of infection. Condoms lubricated with spermicides do not offer extra protection. Frequent use of some spermicides can increase the risk of HIV.

Avoid risky sex practices—Sexual acts that tear or break the skin carry a higher risk of STIs. Even small cuts that do not bleed let germs pass back and forth. Anal sex poses a high risk because tissues in the rectum tear easily. Body fluids also can carry STIs. Having any unprotected sexual contact with an infected person poses a high risk of getting an STI.

Avoid sharing towels or underclothingSome microbes can live outside of the body on towels or underclothing for days so avoid sharing towels or underclothing to reduce the risk of infection

 

 Wash before and after intercourse Researchers at the prestigious Harvard Medical Center have discovered a link between cleanliness and STD prevention. According to Dr. Richard Long, after sex with a partner of ‘unknown STD status,’ a regular shower using soap, hot water, and regular shampoo and conditioner, can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.

If you have a problem with drug or alcohol abuse, get help—  Recreational drug use is associated with high-risk sexual behavior and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Substance abuse drastically increases a drug user’s odds of contracting life-changing diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and other STDs. READ: Shower After Sex Reduce STD – New Study
