Cristy is my honey. Steph is my honey too. LOL. ==>Honey crusted lesions are caused by Staphylococcus.

I always get confused between these two conditions.
- LGV [LymphoGranuloma Venereum] is caused by Chlamydia->Buboes, fistulae, rectal scarring. Rx. Doxy x21d
2. GI [Granuloma Inguinale] is caused by Klebsiella->looks like Penis Ca, Donovan bodies. Rx. Doxy x21d
I remember this way: GI Club–>GI is caused by Klebsiella.
