They usually appear as small red bumps on the skin and are commonly found on genital, buttock, armpit, umbilical, elbow, and hand regions.2 They cause excessive itchiness, particularly at night and secondary infections can arise from excessive scratching. Both parasitic infections are treated with topical creams or oral medications.

Further actions, such as washing infested bedsheets and clothing are also required. Bacterial infections are some of the most common STIs in the United States, and they include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STI in the United States and is primarily spread through vaginal sex, anal sex, and childbirth (from mother to child). Chlamydia is very common because it is typically asymptomatic; only 25% of females and 50% of males acquiring symptoms. STIs are more likely to spread when the carrier is not aware of his/her condition.3 Symptoms associated with chlamydia include painful urination, lower abdominal pain, unusual white discharge, painful sex, and unusual discharge odor.

Syphilis has four stages: It first appears as a chancre (red bump) at the site of infection; transitions into a painless rash that can be accompanied by fever; swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, and muscle pain; then into a latent stage during which there are no apparent symptoms, and finally into the fourth stage where large ulcers may appear on the skin or internal organs, potentially causing organ damage.

All three of these STIs can be treated with oral or subcutaneous (under the skin) antibiotics. There is some symptoms like itching and discomfort around where the sore is located. Herpes is a lifelong condition and its outbreaks vary in terms of frequency, severity, and duration.

Fortunately, there are now regimens of anti-retroviral drugs available that, if taken correctly, greatly improve chances of survival and quality of life. Commonly known as HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy), these drugs have raised the life expectancy after diagnosis from about 10 years to about 20. We strongly encourage regular STI screenings every six months, which involves being tested for STIs without having any physical symptoms, especially for those who are at risk of contracting an STI. At-risk populations include those who are sexually active, involved in sexual relations with people who have been diagnosed with incurable STIs, habitual intravenous drug users, and those who engage in riskier sexual behaviors (e.g., unprotected sex with multiple partner, sexual contact with sex workers, and anal sex).6 We recommend talking to your physician about your sexual history so that he/she can devise best STI screening schedule that is most tailored to your sexual practices. An official medical diagnosis is required for the treatment of any STI; diagnostic exams include pelvic exams, genital swabs, urine analysis, and blood analysis and are the only definite way to know if a person is or is not infected.
