STD screening is something that everyone needs at least once in their lives, and most people need to be tested for STDs on a far more regular basis than that. That's because STDs don't only affect people who are "high risk." They're a fact of life for ordinary Americans - and can impact anyone who has sex.
Here’s what we've been up to recently.
Scabies is a very common disease in many parts of the world. It’s the result of a mite called the Sarcoptes scabiei that lays its eggs under the skin where it reproduces. Upon hatching, the mites crawl on the skin, causing a rash to appear on the skin in the attempt to make new homes.
Organizations that help with STD testing and treatment will get even more money thanks to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors who approved a motion to allocate emergency reserve funds to them.
