COVID-19, long-haulers and erectile dysfunction

Because COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, you would expect that this coronavirus would affect the lungs, cause some sniffles, maybe make you sick (or not), but then go away.

For proof of this belief, just go to the grocery store, or any other store for that matter. More often than not, people are maskless, breathing over one another and visibly not concerned about the spread of the disease.  

Generally COVID-19 displays some unique symptoms. It can reduce the sense of smell and taste. It can bring on a condition called discolored “COVID toes.” It can even cause a swollen, bumpy “COVID tongue.” 

With 87 million (and increasing) COVID-19 cases in the United States and well over 1 million Americans already dead, it is becoming clearer that long-haul cases are far more abundant than originally thought. This means if you become infected by this coronavirus, even if the initial symptoms are mild, it is likely not the end of it. COVID-19, like a rattlesnake, can strike again, and once the virus is inside you, it can cause some really nasty symptoms down the road. For example, take erectile dysfunction.
