What STIs are not treatable or curable and what are the effects (even through non-sexual; activity, e.g. sharing chap-stick)?
Good question! To start off, STIs are a common health issue that can happen to anyone, just like any other infection. All STIs are treatable, and many are even curable.
STIs can be categorized into 2 categories, bacterial (such as, gonorrhea and syphilis) and viral (such as HIV, herpes and HPV). Bacterial infections can be cured using antibiotics. While viral infections cannot be cured, they can be treated and managed. The effects vary from each STI and from person to person.
