Does Alcohol Kill All Std Viruses
This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more
How long can std's live on the hands, let's say if I fingered a woman? I read here that alcohol or soap will not kill HIV etc, when "cleaning up" after protected sex, meaning your hands, groin etc.
If a blood spill is cleaned up with just alcohol prep pads would it kill the virus in the blood if we don't know thatpatient has HIV or anything else?
Yes and no: Technically a virus cannot be killed since it is not alive to begin with. It is more like a container with a program that inserts itself into a living cell and takes it over, leading to reproduction of the virus and infection of other cells. To prevent h1n1 - hand-washing and alcohol based sanitizers are recommended. Alcohol should be at least 60% content in the sanitizer. Prevention is the key. ...Read more
Someone with full blown active aids who starts bleeding and gets blood all over. If u clean with ethyl alcohol 65% will it kill the aids virus?!
Does 70% alcohol sanitize enough to kill the wart (on hands) virus enough to no longer spread on a dry surface?
No: The wart virus is very tough to sanitize. Disinfectants like Lysol (60% alcohol) do not contain a high enough % alcohol to sanitize the HPV virus which causes warts. Exposure to 90% ethanol for at least 1 minute can disinfect the virus. The best way to prevent spread is to keep the wart covered with a bandage. I hope this helps! ...Read more
I received oral and vaginal sex with a condom. I washed and used alcohol immediately afterwards. Is there any chance I could get any STDS?
No: No, rubbing down with rubbing alcohol is not effective at reducing your risk of obtaining an std. Stds are spread by contact with skin to infected skin or infected secretions from someone who has the std. After you have sex with someone who is infected is precisely the wrong time to be concerned for getting an std. Practice safe sex - always. Protect yourself and be prepared for safe sex! ...Read more

Hi I was recently diagnosed with and STD and my doctor prescribed me azithromycin. I took it yesterday but was wondering if alcohol would affect it?
Alcohol: Interacts very strongly with metronidazole (Flagyl) that is used to treat vaginal infections and/or some STD. This is not as much as a concern with azithromycin. Azithromycin and alcohol both require the liver to work harder, and taking them in combination is not recommended. Protect yourself from getting STDs in the future by consistent use of condoms. Some STDs are so easily treated. ...Read more
STDs: Interactions between Metronidazole and alcohol exist. Some of these interactions may be severe and some potentially dangerous. Pharmacists will warn patients to avoid using alcohol while using the medication and for three days after the last dose of the medication has been used. According to the literature, there are severe side effects that include nausea, vomiting, flushing, etc. ...Read more
STD virus?: HIV, Hepatitis B, cytomegalovirus (CMV), Human Papilloma virus (HPV) and Herpes simplex virus (HSV) can be sexually transmitted. Only HIV is really likely to cause death although under certain circumstances you could die from Hep B or CMV. Fatigue will certainly happen along the way ...Read more
Several: HPV has been associated with cancers of the throat and the herpes virus can be transmitted sexually and can cause fever blisters/cold sores. Non-viral stds can also cause tonsilitis and sore throats (GC is probably the one that causes this most frequently). HIV can also be transmitted orally but causes a more systemic problem. ...Read more

Maybe: The term refers to inflammation of the urethra, which is the tube which runs from the bladder and carries urine out. This can be due to stds, but there are many non-sexually associated conditions in which urethritis may occur. When it is std, usually gonorrhea or non-gonococcal urethritis (variety of bugs). ...Read more
Sterility, death..: STD infections can cause problems and infection locally at your genitals, but also in many other organs if it is picked up by your blood stream. Infections locally can cause you to be sterile (unable to have a baby) by destroying your anatomy and reproductive cells. If the bacteria spreads to other organs, for example like syphilis, it can infect your brain. ...Read more
No, but no worries: Cold water just washes them away. If they are hardy enough to survive in cold water, then they don't die in the cold water. However, many germs do not have cold water as their natural habitat, so they eventually die if left in the cold water. Washing with cold water is cleaner than not washing at all. Sometimes, people don't have hot water, but still can live normal lives with cold water. ...Read more
Genital herpes: Genital herpes can be transmitted during sex even if no visible lesions are present. Barrier contraception (condoms) can reduce, but not eliminate, risk of transmission. Risk can be reduced further with suppressive antiviral medication for the infected partner. Your doctor can prescribe this. Your partner will produce his own antibodies if he becomes infected. ...Read more
