Viral STDs on the other hand have no known cure but, there are some medicines as well as treatments that can lessen the possible effects and pain caused by the infection. Getting proper treatment and at the same time, undergoing it as early as possible helps in prolonging life. With the early diagnosis of the condition, it isn’t just going to lessen the probability of transmitting the disease to others but it can even stop its progress of being a more serious condition.
