Unlike several years ago when it was a taboo to speak about diseases that can be contracted through sexual contact, today many people have realized the importance of sharing this information. Awareness about STD causes and treatment is a prerequisite to preventing these diseases.
On that note we have found it wise to share some STD (in men) facts with you. Hopeful, by the end of this article you will be at a position to identify if you or your partner has contracted (or is at risk of contracting) a particular STD and consequently take the right measures.
*Itching – This is normally localized around the penis and scrotum. It is hard to ignore because it normally results in general discomfort.
*Pimples & Blisters – These are also located around the area of sexual contact. If you’re suffering from herpes, pimples and blisters may seem to disappear for some time and then reoccur due to other illnesses or tiredness.
*Rashes – Rashes are quite common in men suffering from sexually transmitted diseases. Just like with the other symptoms, these will often be found at the region of contact.
*Painful sex – This is yet another common STDs symptom. One may also feel pain due to presence of rashes around their sexual organ.
*Puss and difficulties urinating – If you notice puss coming from your penis or experience difficulties while passing water, it is certainly worth consulting a qualified physician.
In conclusion, it is important for you to learn as many facts as possible so as to stay safe. However, if you’ve already contracted any of the diseases that we have discussed above, do not despair. There are many alternatives that you can take towards eliminating or containing it. Seek for professional advice as soon as possible.
