Information from today's @CDCgov clinicians' webinar on #monkeypox.

There have been 305 confirmed cases so far in the US

Interesting that @CAPublicHealth site has 65 listed, but only 43 in the CDC graphic
1/n Image
Number of cases detected over time.

Many cases are among men who have sex with other men.

But it is important to remember that anyone can be infected (and spread) #monkeypox, regardless of sex, gender, or sexual orientation.

Presentation is a bit atypical.

Lesions can appear different in one area of the body, compared to another.

Performing a full skin and mucosal exam is important.

Diagnosis with another #STI doesn't rule out #monkeypox

During each visit, I always try to talk about the #HPV vaccine if they need it. One mom said, "we don't need that yet, her PCP said she had until age 26 to get it." 🤦‍♀️
Please start as early as possible (age 11-12). I'll tell you why 🧵

#HPV (human papillomavirus) is the most common #STI in the US; 80% of sexually active people will get it. There are 100s of different strains; many asymptomatic, others cause genital warts, abnormal pap smears, and cancer (cervical, vaginal, anal, penile, vulvar, oropharyngeal).
The HPV vaccine (gardasil in the US) protects against the 9 highest risk strains, significantly reducing the risk of cervical dysplasia and the cancers mentioned above. More than 90% of #cervicalcancer is caused by HPV.

1/2 #Vaccines are amazing. They make normal activities - like #carehome and #amateur community #singing #choirs safe. Not just business. So what do you make of @DCMS ban >6 in new guidance? #COVID19 @DCMSArts
2/3 There is probably no easier setting for doing an #outbreak investigation than a #choir. @MakingMusic_UK & others have well developed risk assessments. Ask @BarbaraEifler Around 300k people sing weekly - more than football (more women tho....)
3/3 my earlier analysis on #choirs #sti even more relevant in vaccine era. It's time to realise the benefits of our #vaccination programme for #singing - a low cost and life enhancing activity open to all! jackiecassell.com/choirs-coronav… (also listen at 17 mins bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00…)

1/3 Once you get the #scabies itch, it's hard to get rid of it! @michaelghead and @MedVetAcarology doing fantastic international work #NTD
2/3 Which builds on our #NTD work in the UK, would you believe. Here's why we're looking forward to seeing #scabies again in #carehomes as #COVID19 ebbs jackiecassell.com/scabies-in-car…
3/3 With #scabies - like #COVID19 - we must ask "Can rates of infection be too low?" Same for #syphilis - took early #AIDS epidemic in #UK, and Maoism in #China. Something I ask students when teaching on #STI #HIV. Serious question.

Selain #HIV, korang kenal ke Sexually Transmitted Infections (#STI) yang lain? STI ni banyak tau, ada yang boleh dirawat, ada yang tak. Jom kita study pasal STI hari ni ok? Image
1. CHLAMYDIA - Sejenis bakteria, berjangkit melalui seks tanpa kondom (faraj, dubur, oral) dan juga dari ibu ke bayi.

So apa simptom chlamydia? 75% wanita & 50% lelaki yg dijangkiti chlamydia tak alami apa-apa simptom.
Namun simptom-simptom sekiranya timbul termasuk: Image
 lelehan dari zakar atau faraj
 kepedihan bila kencing
 buah zakar bengkak/sakit

So how nak cegah dari dapat chlamydia ni?
 penggunaan kondom
 jangan kongsi permainan seks / gunakan kondom bila dikongsi
