Does the thought of an incurable gonorrhea scare you? Gonorrhea already is quite harmful and dangerous and, thankfully, it can be treated with antibiotics. But an incurable one? What can we do to avoid that?
In a study released earlier this year, at least nine people in Canada have reportedly contracted the incurable gonorrhea strain. The researchers observed 133 gonorrhea patients who received oral antibiotic cephalosporins treatment. After the treatment, 9 patients still had the STD. This is the first incident that a gonorrhea infection has been discovered to be resistant to cephalosporin.
Of course, the findings caused some concer among the medical professionals in the region. Accoding to a medical epidemiologist at CDC, they have heard of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea cases happening in Europe and Asia. Now that it is occuring in North America, they are a bit surprised and alarmed.
Gonorrhea is brought about by the bacteria known as Neisseria gonrorhoeae. It is transmitted through sexual contact and thrives in the moist and warm parts of the body.
Common gonorrhea symptoms include pain when urinating, odd vaginal or penis discharge, more frequent urinating, sore throat, swollen testicles, rashes, and pain when having sex.
