HPV (Human Papillomavirus) - Warts

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a common viral infection transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, encompassing over 100 variants. Over 40 types, spread via sexual contact, can impact the genitals, mouth, or throat. While some HPV cases remain symptom-free, others may lead to genital warts or even cancers in the cervix, anus, and throat. Transmission doesn’t require intercourse, making it fairly easy to contract. Preventative measures include practicing safe sex, using condoms, and getting vaccinated. Though often self-resolving, genital warts from HPV can be treated with procedures like cauterization.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia, a prevalent sexually transmitted disease (STD), is instigated by a bacterial infection, often asymptomatic initially. When present, symptoms may include pain, a burning sensation during urination, and abnormal discharge from the genitalia. Prevention primarily hinges on practicing safe sex and utilizing condoms. Being bacterial in nature, Chlamydia is readily treatable with either topical or oral antibiotics, ensuring a straightforward pathway to recovery with proper medical intervention.

Genital Herpes

Genital herpes, a common STD, is caused by herpes simplex virus, manifesting as painful blisters in sensitive areas, accompanied by fever. Entering the body through skin abrasions or mucous membranes, the virus integrates into cells, making treatment challenging. Symptoms include blisters, itching, and possibly swollen lymph glands. Prevention revolves around condom usage and safe sex practices. Antiviral drugs can hasten recovery, but don’t eradicate the virus, leaving a possibility of recurrence, especially during low immunity phases.

Syphilis

Syphilis, a bacterial STD, first manifests as a small, painless sore called a chancre, appearing on sexual organs, rectum, or inside the mouth. Transmitted only through direct contact with syphilitic chancres, if untreated, it can cause severe damage to vital organs like the heart and brain over time. Progressing through stages, symptoms may include skin rashes, sore throat, and in severe untreated cases, life-threatening tertiary syphilis. Preventive measures include using condoms and practicing safe sex. Antibiotics effectively treat syphilis, especially in early stages.

Crabs or Pubic Lice

Crabs, or pubic lice, are tiny insects residing in pubic hair surrounding the genitals, and can also inhabit other hairy body regions like armpits, chest, and even eyebrows. Transmission primarily occurs through close physical contact, especially sexual encounters, although sharing clothes, linens, or towels with an infested person can also spread the lice. Despite the name, casual contact does not result in transmission. These parasites are easily eradicated using specified medications such as shampoos and creams designed to target the lice.

What are
Venereal Diseases?

Venereal diseases, commonly referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are illnesses transmitted through sexual contact. They are caused by a variety of organisms including bacteria, viruses, and parasites. The transmission occurs when individuals engage in vaginal, anal, or oral sex without adequate protection such as condoms. Some of the well-known venereal diseases include chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes simplex virus (HSV), human papillomavirus (HPV), and HIV/AIDS among others.

The symptoms of these infections can vary widely, from being asymptomatic to causing severe discomfort or even long-term health problems. For instance, untreated chlamydia or gonorrhea can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease in women, potentially causing infertility. Moreover, certain types of HPV can cause genital warts and even cancers of the cervix, anus, and throat.

Prevention of venereal diseases primarily hinges on practicing safe sex, which includes using condoms correctly and consistently, limiting the number of sexual partners, and getting tested for STDs regularly. Moreover, there are vaccines available for some STDs like HPV and hepatitis B which provide effective protection.

Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for managing venereal diseases and preventing their complications. Treatment may include antibiotics for bacterial infections, antiviral drugs for viral infections, and other relevant medical interventions depending on the specific disease. Through education, vaccination, and responsible sexual behavior, the spread of venereal diseases can be significantly curtailed.

More about
Venereal Infections (STDs)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a viral infection that’s passed between people through skin-to-skin contact. There are over 100 varieties of HPV, more than 40 of which are passed through sexual contact and can affect your genitals, mouth or throat.

Some cases of genital HPV infection may not cause any health problems. However, some types of HPV can lead to the development of genital warts and even cancers of the cervix, anus, and throat.

The virus that causes HPV infection is transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. Most people get a genital HPV infection through direct sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex.

Because HPV is a skin-to-skin infection, intercourse isn’t required for transmission to occur.

Many people have HPV and don’t even know it, which means you can still contract it even if your partner doesn’t have any symptoms. It’s also possible to have multiple types of HPV.

The easiest ways to prevent HPV are to use condoms and to practice safe sex.

In addition, vaccine is available for the prevention of genital warts and cancers caused by HPV. The vaccine can protect against nine types of HPV known to be associated with either cancer or genital warts.

Most forms of HPV resolve on their own. In case of genital warts the same can be treated by a simple dermato surgery called cauterization using one of the below techniques:

CO2 Laser Excision
RF Cauterization
Excision by Scalpel
Cryotherapy

Early symptoms may include genital warts, though many types of HPV do not cause any noticeable symptoms.

A healthcare provider can perform a Pap test for women to detect cervical changes, or an HPV DNA test. Men can have a visual inspection for warts, though there isn’t a definitive test for men.

There’s no cure for HPV, but the body’s immune system often clears the virus on its own. Treatments are available for the symptoms and complications like warts and cancers caused by HPV.

Yes, both men and women can receive the HPV vaccine to protect against some common types of the virus.

The HPV vaccine is recommended for all boys and girls starting at ages 11 or 12, though it can be given as early as age 9, and up through age 26 for those who did not get vaccinated earlier.

It’s generally not recommended for pregnant women to receive the HPV vaccine, but they should discuss this with their healthcare provider.

Generally, HPV doesn’t affect fertility, but some complications arising from certain high-risk types of HPV may potentially affect fertility.

The frequency of screening depends on age and previous test results. Women should follow the screening guidelines provided by their healthcare provider, usually starting from age 21.

While most HPV transmissions occur through sexual contact, some types can be transmitted through non-sexual skin-to-skin contact.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking can help boost your immune system to clear HPV and reduce its symptoms.

Chlamydia is a common STD caused by bacteria. People who have chlamydia often do not display any symptoms initially. In certain cases it shows symptoms like pain, burning sensation during urination and abnormal discharge from penis or vagina.

Like all STDS the best way to prevent chlamydia is to use condoms and to practice safe sex.

Since chlamydia is a bacterial infection, it is easily treated with antibiotics both topical and oral.

Chlamydia can be diagnosed through urine tests or swab tests conducted by a healthcare provider.

No, chlamydia requires treatment with antibiotics to be cured. Without treatment, it can lead to serious health problems.

Yes, if left untreated, chlamydia can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease in women and epididymitis in men, which can cause infertility.

It’s advisable to wait 1-2 weeks post exposure before getting tested to ensure accurate results. However, one should consult with a healthcare provider.

Typically, it takes about 7-14 days of antibiotic treatment to cure chlamydia, though one might be advised to abstain from sex for a week after starting therapy.

Yes, previous infection does not provide immunity, and you can get re-infected if exposed again.

Yes, STD treatment including chlamydia is confidential, but it’s important to inform sexual partners so they can also get tested and treated if necessary.

Untreated chlamydia can cause serious and permanent health problems like pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy.

Yes, chlamydia can cause complications like premature birth, low birth weight, and infections in the newborn. It’s important to get tested and treated.

If treated timely, chlamydia shouldn’t cause any long-term effects. Untreated chlamydia can lead to serious health issues like infertility.

Genital herpes is a very common STD. It presents as painful blisters on the sensitive areas accompanied by fever and burning sensation on affected areas.

The virus enters the body through skin abrasions or mucous membranes. Mucous membranes are the thin layers of tissue that line the openings of your body. They can be found in your nose, mouth, and genitals. Once the viruses are inside, they incorporate themselves into your cells. Viruses tend to multiply or adapt to their environments very easily, which makes treating them difficult

Two types of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) cause genital herpes:

HSV-1. This type usually causes cold sores, but it can also cause genital herpes.

HSV-2. This type usually causes genital herpes, but it can also cause cold sores.

General symptoms for anyone include the following:

Blisters may appear in the mouth and on the lips, face, and anywhere else that came into contact with areas of infection.
The area that has contracted the condition often starts to itch, or tingle, before blisters actually appear.
The blisters may become ulcerated (open sores) and ooze fluid.
A crust may appear over the sores within a week of the outbreak.
Your lymph glands may become swollen. Lymph glands fight infection and inflammation in the body.
You may have headaches, body aches, and fever

Like all STDS the best way to prevent genital herpes is to use condoms and to practice safe sex.

Since its a viral infection, antiviral drugs tend to speed up the recovery. However these only push the virus into remission and do not permanently destroy the virus. There is always a likelihood of recurrence of an outbreak especially when the body has lower immunity.

No, there is currently no cure for genital herpes. However, antiviral medications can manage symptoms and reduce the likelihood of transmission.

The frequency of outbreaks varies significantly from person to person. Some individuals may have frequent outbreaks while others may have them rarely or not at all.

Genital herpes does not affect fertility, but it might pose risks during pregnancy. It’s advisable to consult with a healthcare provider if you have genital herpes and are pregnant.

Yes, with proper management and communication with your partner(s), many individuals with genital herpes lead healthy sexual lives.

Using condoms, taking antiviral medications, and avoiding sexual contact during outbreaks can significantly reduce the risk of transmission.

Common triggers include stress, illness, fatigue, sun exposure, and hormonal changes, though triggers can vary between individuals.

Rarely, genital herpes can lead to meningitis or cause rectal inflammation. Also, it increases the risk of HIV transmission.

Yes, it’s possible to be infected with both HSV-1 and HSV-2.

Yes, it’s crucial to communicate with your partner(s) about your STD status to make informed decisions and take necessary precautions.

If you suspect you have genital herpes, you should see a healthcare provider for testing and appropriate management.

Syphilis is a bacterial STD. The first sign of syphilis is a small, painless sore. It can appear on the sexual organs, rectum, or inside the mouth. This sore is called a chancre.

Syphilis is only spread through direct contact with syphilitic chancres. It can’t be transmitted by sharing a toilet with another person, wearing another person’s clothing, or using another person’s eating utensils.

Syphilis that remains untreated for a long time can cause major damage to important organs, such as the heart and the brain.

Skin rashes and a sore throat may develop during the second stage of syphilis. The rash won’t itch and is usually found on the palms and soles, but it may occur anywhere on the body. Some people don’t notice the rash before it goes away.

Other symptoms of secondary syphilis may include headaches, swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, fever, weight loss, hair loss, aching joints etc.

The last stage of infection is tertiary syphilis. Tertiary syphilis can occur years or decades after the initial infection. Tertiary syphilis can be life-threatening.

Like all STDS the best way to prevent syphilis is to use condoms and to practice safe sex.

Syphilis being a bacterial infection is easily treated in the initial stages with antibiotics.

Syphilis can reoccur if a person is re-exposed to the bacteria, but the previously treated infection does not recur on its own.

Syphilis is diagnosed through blood tests, and in some cases, examination of a sore under a microscope may also be performed.

Syphilis is most contagious in its primary and secondary stages, and during early latent stage. It’s less likely to be transmitted during the late latent or tertiary stages.

Untreated syphilis can lead to severe complications affecting the heart, brain, and other organs, potentially causing life-threatening issues.

While rare, syphilis can be spread through close, non-sexual contact if an uninfected person comes into contact with a syphilitic chancre on an infected individual.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent syphilis. The most effective prevention measures are practicing safe sex and regular testing.

If you suspect you have been exposed to syphilis, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible for testing and potential treatment.

Treatment can help prevent further damage but may not reverse damage already done. It’s crucial to catch and treat syphilis early to avoid reaching this stage.

Yes, syphilis can be transmitted from a pregnant woman to her fetus, which can lead to congenital syphilis, causing severe health issues or stillbirth.

If treated early, there are usually no long-term effects. However, delayed treatment can lead to permanent damage to the heart, brain, and other organs.

Pubic lice are also called crabs. These tiny insects live on your pubic hair — the hair below the belly button, around the genitals. Pubic lice rarely live on the scalp, but they can live in other hairy parts of the body, including Armpits, Beard and mustache, Chest, Eyebrows and eyelashes etc.

You get genital crabs by coming into close physical contact with a person who has them. The lice jump from the pubic hair of one person to another. Usually, people catch crabs by having sex with a person who has them. Even if there’s no penetration or intercourse, the close physical contact means you can catch or spread crabs.

You can occasionally get crabs other ways, too. You can catch them by sharing or having contact with the clothes, linens and towels of a person who has them. But you won’t get crabs through casual contact

Pubic lice or crabs are parasites and are easily killed by using targeted medications in the form of shampoos and creams.

Yes, while they prefer pubic hair, they can infest other coarse body hair like armpit, chest, or facial hair. However, they rarely infest the scalp hair.

Infestations can spread quickly through sexual contact or close personal contact. It’s important to get treated promptly to prevent spreading the lice to others.

Yes, pubic lice can be seen with the naked eye. They are small, but their presence is often identifiable through their crab-like appearance or the visible eggs (nits) they lay on hair shafts.

Over-the-counter treatments can be effective if used correctly. However, it’s advisable to follow a healthcare provider’s instructions to ensure effective treatment.

Shaving can remove some of the lice, but not the eggs. It’s advisable to use a medication specifically designed to treat pubic lice.

Yes, pubic lice can transfer to bedding, clothing, and towels, although the risk is low. Washing items in hot water and drying them on a high heat setting can kill the lice and their eggs.

After effective treatment, adult lice should die within 24 hours. Follow-up treatment may be necessary to ensure that all lice and eggs are eradicated.

Severe infestations can cause skin irritation, and excessive scratching can lead to secondary bacterial infections. It’s advisable to treat the infestation promptly to avoid complications.

It’s preferable to use a treatment specifically formulated for pubic lice. Consult a healthcare provider for the most effective treatment.

Yes, if you have pubic lice, it’s likely that your sexual partner(s) may also be infested. It’s advisable for all recent sexual partners to be treated at the same time to prevent re-infestation.
