Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) Medical Treatment
The treatment of an STD varies depending on the type of STD. Some STDs require a person to take antibiotic medication either by mouth or by injection; other STDs require a person to apply creams or special solutions on the skin. Often, reexamination by a doctor is necessary after the treatment to confirm that the STD is completely gone.
Some STDs, such as genital herpes and HIV (which leads to AIDS), cannot be cured, only controlled with medication.
