Ter­ror as medics fear spread of hor­ror plague

Sunday Sport - - NEWS - By BAR­NEY SAMUELS news@ sun­daysport. co. uk

A NEW form of VD that munches away on vic­tim’s gen­i­tals has been iden­ti­fied for the first time… in SOUTHPORT!

The hor­ror plague, called Dono­vanosis, is nor­mally re­stricted to trop­i­cal coun­tries and it’s not yet clear why it’s cropped up in the Mersey­side sea­side re­sort.

The bug, if left un­treated, causes flesh- eat­ing gen­i­tal ul­cers to grow and spread. Other bac­te­ria then at­tacks the rot­ting mat­ter in the ul­cers, cre­at­ing a stench de­scribed as “like a dead dog in a pud­dle of sewage on a warm sum­mer’s day”.

Bit by bit, the hor­ror in­fec­tion eats away at the gen­i­tals then moves on to the ARSEHOLE.

Com­pli­ca­tions

There are also pos­si­ble com­pli­ca­tions in­volved in con­tract­ing the dis­ease, which can in­clude per­ma­nent gen­i­tal dam­age and scar­ring, loss of skin colour and ir­re­versible gen­i­tal swelling due to the scar­ring.

The dis­ease is usu­ally found in trop­i­cal and sub­trop­i­cal coun­tries such as south­east In­dia, Guyana and New Guinea, and due to its rar­ity in Bri­tain it doesn’t ap­pear on most sex pox lists, com­piled by UK sex­ual health web­sites.

Phar­ma­cist Shamir Pa­tel, of Chemist 4 U, said: “This is a very rare and nasty con­di­tion and it could be one of the first times it has been recorded in the UK.

“Dono­vanosis it­self can be treated with an­tibi­otics, time is of the essence. Any de­lay could cause the flesh around the gen­i­tals to lit­er­ally rot away.

“This bac­te­ria is also a risk fac­tor in the trans­mis­sion of HIV.”
