Readers beware!

..Of laypeople who offer treatment suggestions and drugs, home remedies, outdated material, sites written as advisory by individuals who are not professionals.

Be aware that several websites available on STD Symptoms are offering, suggesting or selling meds for STDs - Medications that are not prescribed by your health care provider but are recommended for healing or aiding the healing process.

Some STDs have symptoms that disappear temporarily, yet are contagious. It is advisable to see a physician to cure the STD symptoms or to treat a virus, not just make the STD symptoms go away. Medications suggested or offered online may not be a cure for you personally.

Also, note the date a site is updated. One site claiming to be an authority on the subject of STD symptoms hasn’t been updated since 2004. It is best to know a site is looked after with current information for your benefit.

It is certainly a reassuring thing to know someone else understands your situation. Or to share information with people who have been or who are in the same situation as you are, who have STD symptoms. Hearing their insights may help you feel less of a stigma about having a social disease, STD symptoms, or may help you in some other way. There is no harm in this. There are lots of blogs and chat sites available if you want to relate to people online who are experienced with, have, had or just become infected with an STD or HIV/AIDS.

However, sites on medical subjects, especially STD Symptoms that are highly contagious, are best if there is a board of medical directors or if it is authorized by professionals. Your health is at stake if you take advice from anyone claiming an authoritative position to advise you about diseases that spread and are pandemic, who is not qualified to do so.
