Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) include syphilis, HIV, HPV, gonorrhea, chlamydia and herpes. Syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia can be treated and cured. HPV and Herpes can be treated, but there is no cure. Clinics and private doctors can diagnose and treat STD. In Baltimore County, you can be treated confidentially in County Health Department clinics. If you suspect you have contracted a STD, it is important that you see a doctor immediately in order to be diagnosed and treated.
