What Sexually Transmitted Infections Are, and Why You Should Know

Chlamydia trachomatis is a gram-negative bacterium that is classified as a sexually transmitted infection.  This infection affects more women than men and appears more often in younger individuals. In the early stages of the infection, there are few if any outward symptoms and the symptoms that men and women experience can be different.  Some individuals, as many as 70% of males and 50% of females do not have any symptoms which has caused this infection to be nicknamed the "silent infection". Although the disease is easily treated with antibiotics or cialis potenzmittel apotheke Zurich, great care must be taken in following directions for use of the antibiotic to clear up the infection and to prevent a recurrence. Other areas of the body that can get infected include the rectum, throat and eyes. Left untreated the infection can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, epididymis, prostate gland infection, infections in newborns, infertility and reactive arthritis.

One of the interesting infections that can occur from Chlamydia is eye infections. Eye infections, although rare, can result from oral sex or contact of the genital region to the eyes. A common avenue of infection is to touch the eye with an unwashed hand or finger that had come in contact with the bacteria in the genital area. The eye infection can occur from either direct or indirect contact with the bacterium.

Symptoms of an eye infection with Chlamydia trachomatis can include:

redness, itching, irritation, swelling, discharge and sensitivity to light. Chlamydia in the eye is known as Chlamydia trachoma. The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 84 million individuals worldwide are affected by trachoma and about 8 million suffer some degree of vision loss. Trachoma causes redness in the whites of the eyes and the inside of the eyelid. Both eyes are generally infected through rubbing or itching of the infected eye with cross contamination to the uninfected eye. The infection in the eye is easily treated and if caught early, treatment can cure the infection and prevention further complications. If the infection is left untreated, it can result in blindness.

Trachoma can be easily confused with other types of conjunctivitis that result from either virus or bacteria, commonly known as pink eye. The Centers for Disease Control note that children younger than 10 are at most risk for trachoma. Accurate diagnosis is needed to determine trachoma as its treatment differs from other forms of conjunctivitis. After about 7 to 10 days of the onset of trachoma symptoms, small bumps will appear on the inside of the eyelids. These bumps contain collections of white blood cells, and will grow in size and abundance over the next several weeks if left untreated.

Trachoma will often cause swelling of the lymph node in front of the ear, which is not typically seen in other types of conjunctivitis.
