While there are many sexually transmitted diseases in the world today, and many media is constantly educating the public on their existence and how to prevent them from occurring, or how to go about treating them, if they occur, there are quarters that are bent on disseminating misleading and totally false information.

The existence of blue waffle disease has not been seen anywhere in the world despite its widespread on the internet as a meme. It is said to be a condition that affects only women. However, the information surrounding the nature of blue waffle disease greatly differs from one source to another.

We will examine the symptoms of this disease to determine the truth behind it. We will also compare these symptoms to those of known sexually transmitted diseases. Also, how does blue waffle disease transmit? What are the available treatment options for it? All these questions will be answered.

What is Blue Waffle Disease?

Blue waffle is a made-up Sexually Transmitted Disease whose existence began about 10 years ago. It started as a click bait in 2010, where a blue waffle dares people to click it by claiming that they cannot find it on the internet. On clicking, you find an image of a vagina with lesions all over the labia. It is also colored blue. This begins a scare that is difficult to contain. Although it has been debunked as false, it still resurfaces sometimes, especially when new adolescents tumble on the image on the internet.

The Blue Waffle Disease is said to affect women, making their labia inflamed, itchy, and have a smelly discharge – symptoms that are consistent with most sexually transmitted diseases.

However, gynecologists and medical record of sexually transmitted diseases have successfully passed this disease as a hoax, confirming its non-existence. Although the symptoms it is said to present are similar to many other STDs, there is no STD that turns the vagina blue.

There is a suspicion that the images of this disease that circulated online is a doctored image. However, it is also possible that it is an image of a vagina that is being treated of yeast infection with Gentian violet stains.

Possible Causes of Blue Waffle Disease

According to the information circulated on different website at that time, blue waffle disease is caused by poor hygiene in women and consistent sexual intercourse. The veracity of this is debunked when it is restricted to only women.

Although poor hygiene has been known to cause so many health problems, including the emergence of some sexually transmitted diseases, but poor hygiene does not have negative sexual effect on only women, although it affects them faster and more intensely.

Having consistent sexual intercourse has never been known to cause any negative health condition. As a matter of fact, medical practitioners advise that women engage in sexual intercourse regularly, advisably with one partner and with protection, with sexual partners who have multiple partners, for safety.

These causes, as propagated by the internet, only serves the purpose of making women appear evil for engaging in sexual intercourse as often as they feel.

Transmission of Blue Waffle Disease

Although this fictional disease is said to affect women, some people say it can be transferred from an affected woman to a man if she engages in sexual intercourse with the man. This may be true for many STDs that can be easily transmitted from women to women. To avoid contracting STDs from infected people, it is generally advised that you abstain, or use protection.

However, this does not insinuate that there is any truth to the existence of Blue Waffle Disease. You cannot contract a sexually transmitted disease that will make your vagina or penis blue. But you can contract other STDs. So, use protection, by all means.

Symptoms of Blue Waffle Disease

Like every disease, blue waffle disease comes with its made-up symptoms. Chief among them is the blue coloration of the vagina, as a result of the action of the unknown pathogen that causes this fictitious STD. Also, blue waffle disease is said to present symptoms such as lesions on the labia, irritation of the vagina, presented as burning sensation or itching of the vagina, and smelly discharge.

These symptoms are consistent with other sexually transmitted diseases, such as vaginitis, MGen STD and trichomoniasis. Therefore, while blue waffle disease may be non-existent, you should take these symptoms seriously if you notice them on your genital. Consult your doctor immediately, to have it treated.

Treatment Option for Blue Waffle Disease

There are no treatments for blue waffle disease, since it is not a real thing. However, if you notice the symptoms listed above, except blue vagina, consult your doctor immediately, for appropriate treatment. The treatment may include the use of antibiotics or other anti-pathogenic medication for days or weeks, depending on the severity and your doctor’s discretion.

Conclusion

Blue waffle disease is a non-existent disease whose rumor peddling started some time in 2010 and caused a great deal of panic among people, especially the sexually active ones. It is said to cause the vagina to itch, burn, inflame, and have lesions, leaving it blue.

However, the rumor of its existence has been trashed by gynecologists and medical disease record. Therefore, the scare has been managed to some extent. However, because the internet never forgets, it is necessary that the right information be put out there for the new generation of adolescents that may stumble on the blue waffle disease image online.

Also, this article helps to debunk the false idea that regular sex for women is bad for women. However, if you notice any of the symptoms attributed to blue waffle disease, it may be another STD, check it and treat it as soon as possible.
