College, Crabs And the Need for STD Testing

College. Good times. Girls (and guys, if that’s the way you swing) of every conceivable variety and flavor. Keg parties, rock & roll (or rap, if that’s the way you swing) and one night stands! Pretty young things away from home for the first time who are intent on experiencing life and all its pleasures. It took two years of college life for me to even entertain the thought of STD testing. It just hadn’t entered my mind. It should have light weight band 3d real mink blink eyelashes.

Lrsmn Clear as bell, I remember sitting on the toilet bowl in the dorm bathroom and noticing a harmless piece of lint in my pubic hair. Having nothing else to do at the moment, I lifted it up and looked at it closely. The lint had legs! To say I almost fell off the toilet bowl would be accurate. In fact, I did react so quickly that I dunked my butt cheeks and got them wet. In light weight band 3d real mink blink eyelashes , at the rate I was piling up the pile-driving, I probably should have had STD testing done earlier.

I was lucky in a way. Getting crabs, or pubic lice, or crotch critters, or whatever you want to call them is a heck of a lot better than catching that other STD that was making its mark in the 1980s. There I was, at the end of my sophomore year, sitting on the john and infected with crabs. I’d had better moments.

We all go about our lives, and if you are at college, you may be engaging in one or two things that should give you pause. Hopefully you are. Any other way of living would be drab and boring. Responsibility is the key when dealing with these things we do. For many of us, sex happens so naturally that we may not realize at the time that it comes with heavy costs. STD Testing is just one of those costs.

Lrsmn Let us take a look at pubic lice-or crabs, as they are better known in the language of the day-shall we? Hopefully you have a strong stomach, for it is the reality that causes the responsibility, after all…

What are Crabs?
They are parasitic INSECTS that breed in the genital area of humans. They are rife in every country on Earth and are acquired by contact with an infected person, and even the use of bed linens and mattresses, clothing, etc. As an STD they are quite unique in that they are alive but not microscopic.

Where are They Found?
Like previously mentioned, it is common for crabs to be situated in the genital region. This is due to its darkness and dampness, and it just being its natural breeding area. This form of lice however, can also be found in the beard, the moustache, the armpits, and even the light weight band 3d real mink blink eyelashes . Quite disturbing, actually.

What are the Symptoms of Crabs?
Generally they are an intense itch and/or redness in the genital area and other warm dark areas such as the armpits. Typically infected persons feel the itchiness more intensely at night while attempting to sleep. Depending on the age of the lice (life cycles are quick) most can be seen by the naked eye. Many times however, the eggs (smaller sized) are located through testing that requires a magnifying glass.

How are Crabs Cured?
Ridding oneself of these awful critters is not difficult. Of course, testing should be done regularly if you are having sex, but if you do become infected with crabs there is medicine available over the counter that you can apply yourself. The medications come under different brand names but most contain a lice-killing solution called permethrin. Many people who become infected prefer to visit a certified STD clinic for their treatment and this is completely understandable due to the nature of the infection itself. When I had my case, I felt better knowing that a doctor was giving me a professional de-lousing, so to speak!

If you happen to be in the market for a certified STD doctor (and if you are currently engaging in sex you should be) then log onto STD testing NYC.
