Genital disease is most commonly caused by the type II herpes virus, however, both groups also occur around the genitals.
In the vast majority of cases, blisters appear in groups within 3 to 20 days of infection, accompanied by a burning, itchy sensation, which become painful, epithelial-deficient, or ulcerated after a few days.
For men, they can appear anywhere on the penis. Once the symptoms have passed, the virus migrates to the ganglia, where it remains for a lifetime, so it can be transmitted asymptomatically. If the immune system weakens, it can cause symptoms again at any time.
This bacterium is the causative agent of syphilis. It is most commonly transmitted sexually or can be passed on to the foetus by the mother. Sexually transmitted infections usually result from direct contact with a so-called syphilitic chancre, which is a hard, painless ulcer that occurs on the skin or mucous membranes of the genitals.
Its course consists of several stages, the first symptoms appearing 2-3 weeks after infection. One or more ulcers appear on the body surface that was in contact with the partner, in case of in men, on the penis. Alternatively, approx. 6 weeks after the infection, red rashes appear all over the body.
