STD Pictures & Photos: What Do Different STDs Look Like?

There are numerous types of treatment for numerous types of sexually transmitted diseases that you can resort to. Generally, the physicians will require you to undergo a series of examinations and history-taking sessions. These procedures are important to help them personalize the methods that you can use to address your own condition based from the clinical presentations.

HIV or AIDS

STD Pictures & Photos 1For HIV or AIDS, you should take note that the pictures of STDs will show you that there is no known cure for the condition. One of the most common manifestations in a person with HIV or AIDS is the presence of rashes. The rashes are there because of the proliferation of infection in different regions of the body. Another manifestation of the condition that you may note is the presence of hot flashes. This is mainly caused by chronic fever for the person with the condition. The swollen lymph glands may be there, but they may not be too evident on plain sight except during palpation.

Gonorrhea

Aside from the presence of rashes, the bloody, cloudy, and thick discharges can also add up to the clinical picture. Because of the pain on the nether region, the person may experience lack of appetite. When this happens, it can inevitably lead to significant weight loss. This is especially true if the condition has been left untreated for a considerable amount of time.

Chlamydia

The paleness of the complexion may be attributed to the chills and frequent fever that they get because of the striking of the infection. They may also present with profuse night sweating with persistent fatigue.

Syphilis

This sore is painless and small. In some cases, they may form into clusters. This will depend on the current severity of the condition.
