Humans don’t have a monopoly on sexually transmitted infections. Oysters get herpes, rabbits get syphilis, dolphins get genital warts.

You might say chlamydia connects us all.
The SGLT2 inhibitors can help lower blood sugar in those with type 2 diabetes by inducing the kidneys to excrete more sugar through the urine. Lowering blood sugar can help reduce the risk of diabetic complications such as heart attack and stroke.

Itchy skin rashes are very common in the genital region, which generally includes the area below the belly button to the top of the legs: the buttocks the area around the anus, and the vulvar, penile, and scrotal areas.
Many of these conditions on the genitals are sexually transmitted and uncommon in children or in those who are not sexually active.

No matter what expensive and complex weapons are used—razor blades, electric shavers, tweezers, waxing, depilatories, electrolysis—hair, like crab grass, always grows back and eventually wins. In the mean time, the skin suffers the effects of the scorched battlefield.
