Sexually Transmitted Diseases That Currently Have No Cure

There are many sexually transmitted diseases that currently have no cure. One of those is genital herpes. This virus can be spread through sexual contact and has the ability to cause symptoms such as painful sores or blisters in the genital area.


1. Herps

Herpes simplex virus type 2 is another sexually transmitted disease that has no cure. HSV-2 is a viral infection that causes sores or blisters on or around the genitals, rectum or mouth. It can also affect other areas of the body such as the eyes, nose, buttocks and fingers.


2. HIV/AIDS

This highly infectious disease causes gradual loss of weight and muscle mass, weakness, fatigue and weight loss. It also leads to dementia, cirrhosis of the liver, heart disease and cancer.

3. Syphilis

In the early stages of syphilis, you may notice a rash on your skin that is similar to a sunburn. This rash can appear anywhere on your body, including your palms and soles. It will go away within a few weeks. However, if you do not treat this infection early on, it can cause serious complications that lead to blindness or paralysis.
