SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES

Syphilis
Syphilis is a Sexually Transmitted Disease caused by a bacterium, Treponema pallidum. It occurs in both sexes with an ulcer (sore) of the genitals or mouth.

Gonococcal urethritis (gonorrhea)
Gonorrhoea (or Gonorrhea) is a relatively common disease that is easily transmitted through sexual intercourse (vaginal, oral, anal) between people of the same or opposite sex.

Non-Gonococcal Urethritis
In addition to gonococcus, there are many other germs that cause urethritis. Most of these are sexually transmitted.

Balanoposthitis
This term refers to inflammation of the glans (head) of the penis and the foreskin that covers the glans in men who have not been circumcised. Sometimes it can be combined with urethritis.

Vaginitis
This general term refers to disorders of the female vagina caused by an infection, inflammation or changes in the normal vaginal flora.

Infectious Terminthos
Η Infectious Terminthos is caused by the Molluscum Contagiosum Virus, which is highly contagious.

HIV/AIDS
HIV infection results in a chronic infection, which with the use of modern drugs can last for many years. There are two types of the virus (I and II) and several subtypes. They attack the immune system and in particular lymphocytes, causing a progressive impairment of immune function.

Hepatitis B
Η Hepatitis B is caused by the HBV virus. It is highly contagious (about 100 times more so than the AIDS virus, HIV).

Hepatitis C
This type of hepatitis virus is mainly transmitted blood-borne, i.e. from contaminated syringes, from transfusions of contaminated blood, from unsterilised surgical instruments, etc. Transmission through sexual contact is also possible, as well as from mother to child during pregnancy.

Wrinkling of the pubis
Η Pseudophthalmia of the pubis is due to the parasite Phthirus pubis. These parasites live in human pubic hair, but can also be found elsewhere in the body.
