STD / STI Treatment

Most bacterial and protozoal STDs / STIs are treatable or curable with oral and/or injectable antibiotics.

Most viral STD / STIs are not curable but symptoms can be effectively managed with anti-virals and may even be kept in remission for a long time. Viral STDs that causes growths can be removed with non-invasive and relatively painless techniques like liquid nitrogen or cryotherapy.

Fungal STDs / STIs are treatable but tend to recur once in a while.

Parasitic STDs / STIs are treatable with topical lotions and tend not to recur unless re-contact with infested sex partner.
