Oxford named as 'genital warts capital of UK'

Pharmacist and managing director of  chemist-4-u.com , Shamir Patel, warned those who are sexually active in the university city to be aware ahead of the new term in September.

Mr Patel urged those experiencing symptoms such as itching or bleeding to get checked out.

Other STIs stats for Oxford, made available through a Freedom of Information request, included 437 cases of genital herpes and 200 cases of gonorrhoea.

There were 35 cases of Syphilis, while there were 11 cases of scabies.

According to the online pharmacy, males were ahead of women in the STI stakes; 1,626 men were recorded to have been treated with an STI in the Oxford region, and 1,409 females - based on eight sexual health clinic locations.

And it was the 20-to-23 age group that scored the highest, 454 males treated for an STI and 523 females.
