Chancroid Culture

Dec 20th 2013 at 8:36 PM

A chancroid culture is used to determine if you have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) known as chancroid. Chancroid is caused by Haemophilus ducreyi. It can only be transmitted through sexual contact. Chancroid causes fluid-filled ulcers on the genitals. A chancroid culture requires a small sample of skin from a chancroid ulcer. Any bacteria found in this sample are then grown in a lab. According to an article in the Canadian Journal of Infectious Disease Medicine (CJIDM), most laboratories consider chancroid culture the “gold standard” for diagnosing this STI (CJIDM 2011). http://curlsandcutz.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-number-of-calories-burned

Chancroid is rare in the United States. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), less than 50 cases are diagnosed in the United States every year. The STI is more common in developing countries. Most U.S. citizens who have chancroid get it while travelling abroad (NIH, 2011). Chancroid is often mistaken for more common STIs such as syphilis and herpes. Read more Who Needs a Chancroid Culture? Call your doctor if you have symptoms of chancroid. You may also need testing if you have engaged in high-risk, unprotected sexual behavior. According to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), chancroid usually appears as a small bump about 10 days after contact with the bacteria (IDPH, 2008). The bump grows into a soft ulcer. This ulcer often drains pus and fluid. Characteristics of the ulcer include: 1/8 inch to 2 inches across soft (unlike syphilis sores, which are hard and rubbery) painful ragged gray, or yellowish edges bleeds easily at the base On men, the ulcer appears on the: foreskin scrotum behind or on the head of the penis shaft or opening the penis On women, ulcers usually develop on the outer vaginal lips. They may also occur on: the inner vaginal lips the perineal area (between the genitals and the anus) the inner thighs Women may have as many as four or more ulcers. About half of men have only one ulcer. Women often show no symptoms. They may experience pain during urination and intercourse. The ulcers may not be obvious.
