Sexually transmitted diseases are caused by sexual contact with an infected person, either vaginal, anal or oral. There are many types like HIV, chlamydia, herpes, hepatitis, etc. The symptoms can vary from pain, itching in the genital area to discharge, rashes, bleeding to being symptomless. Since the cause can be either bacterial, viral or fungal, the management is done accordingly with the help of specific antibiotics and maintaining hygiene. STD caused by a virus is non-treatable and hence can only be managed. Prevention of these can be done by maintaining proper hygiene, having protected sex and when in doubt consult a dermatologist.
