STD Treatment refers to the use of medications or modalities to eradicate or cure sexually transmitted infections, to ameliorate or to improve the signs and symptoms associated with such infections.
Most bacterial STDs / STIs may be effectively treated and cured with appropriate antibiotics and most viral STDs/ STIs may be effectively controlled with appropriate antivirals. Unsightly, unusual lumps and growths caused by human papillomavirus or molluscium may be removed and cleared with topical treatments like wart creams or non-invasive procedures like cryotherapy or liquid nitrogen.
At Nuffield Medical Siglap, we offer a full range of cost-effective and evidence-based treatment options for STDs and STIs. We also offer prophylactic and empirical treatment for patients who have been exposed but are not showing any symptoms as well as for partners who may have been exposed.
Types of Common STDs / STIs that can be treated at our clinic:
Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection (HIV)
Prevention only. HIV can be prevented if PEP treatment is commenced early (less than 72 hours) after exposure.
