Std Testing, STD Screening and STD Treatment clinic in Malaysia. No one really talks about it, but sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or sexually transmitted diseases (STD) are really very common, especially among young people; or rather anyone who is sexually active!
Put simply, it means any infection that is passed from one person to another by having sex (including oral and anal sex) and sometimes through direct contact with genitals. DTAP KL provide fast and confidential STD testing and STD treatment for both men and women.
STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are bacteria, viruses and parasites that are transmitted from one person to another primarily during sexual intercourse. STDs can infect the penis, the vagina, the anus, the throat and even the eyes. Certain STDs can also cause symptoms in places other than the sexual organs. That is why it is important to do STD testing and subsequently STD treatment.
For example, Syphilis can result in a rash that covers the whole body including the palms and the soles. In fact, more worryingly, many STDs can infect a person and stay completely silent without causing any symptoms (so-called asymptomatic infections). These cases are particularly challenging as patients do not even know that they are infected. Therefore they do not do STD testing and no STD treatment can be done. They then not only may potentially suffer serious long term complications caused by the infection, but they can also unknowingly pass the infection onto others.
Knowing your STD status is very important. Many STDs can be cured with the correct antibiotics. Others can be managed with medication. Knowing your status also allows you to take steps to protect your partner while the infection is being treated. What is worse is trying to self STD treatment with home remedies like apple cider vinegar or over the counter antibiotics. I often see patients who suffer serious complications like skin burns from home remedies. Taking antibiotics without proper medical advice can also lead to the bacteria becoming resistant to the medicines thereby requiring stronger and more toxic medicines to treat. Or in rare but serious cases, the bacteria becomes completely resistant and effectively incurable.
