Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Treatment

STD - (on June 12, 2015 12:24 PM)

The STD treatment can save the infected individual from many risks involved with STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). If the STD treatment for bacterial STDs starts in the initial stages it can not only stop the damage that can be done to the health of the the infected person but the person can be fully cured as well. Whereas, in viral STDs the STD treatment can reduce the symptoms since they cannot be cured. In both cases the STD treatment is important.


 

This brings us to to ask the question that how STDs are treated?, which STDs can a infected person get rid off? and what treatment can reduce the symptoms of viral STDs?

 

Here we will help you know all about the STD treatment of the major STDs and help you get the answers to your questions.

 

 

STD Treatment

 

The bacterial STD treatment is done with the help of antibiotics to cure them while in the other place viral STDs cannot be cured but treatment is available for the problems caused by them. To explain the STD treatment with a greater insight we will describe it according to the different STDs.

 

 

Chlamydia STD Treatment

The chlamydia STD is caused by the bacteria known as Chlamydia trachomatis. The chlamydia STD treatment for its cure is often done with the help of the following antibiotics;

  • Clarithromycin

  • Levofloxacin

  • Ofloxacin

  • Tetracycline

  • Erythromycin

  • Azithromycin

  • Doxycycline

  • Ciprofloxacin

With the passage of time the chlamydia bacteria has improved to show resistance to some antibiotics which is why it is also treated with the help of a combination of antibiotics. This is entirely based on the discretion of the medical care provider.

 

Gonorrhea STD Treatment

The gonorrhea STD is caused by the bacteria known as Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The gonorrhea STD treatmeant for its cure is done through antibiotics such as;

  • Cefixime

  • Doxycycline

  • Cefuroxime

  • Cefpodoxime

  • Azithromycin

  • Erythromycin

  • Ceftriaxone

 

Just like chlamydia, the gonorrhea bacteria has mutated and shows resistance to some antibiotics that were used in its treatment which is why it is now also treated through a combination of antibiotics that can be taken orally, administered in the eye or injected. This is entirely based on the discretion of the medical care provider.

 

 

Syphilis STD Treatment

The syphilis STD is caused by the bacteria called Treponema pallidum. Syphilis is completely curable. The syphilis STD treatment is done with the help of penicillin. If syphilis is diagnosed in its initial stages a single dose is good enough to get rid off it while for syphilis which has fully developed in the infected person larger and continuous dosage of penicillin is used for the treatment. The treatment of syphilis is best done when the infected individual and their sexual partners are treated for syphilis at the same time.

 

 

HIV/AIDS Treatment

AIDS is a viral STD and caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV cannot be cured but treatment is available that can alleviate its symptoms. HIV is treated through HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy). This therapy is known to reduce the levels of the HIV virus in the blood to such levels that it can not damage the immune system.

 

 

Herpes Treatment

The herpes STD has two types; Genital Herpes and Cold Sores. Herpes is a viral STD and cannot be cured however the antivirals used for its treatment can manage its outbreak. We will discuss the Herpes STD treatment according to its two types.
