If you have symptoms or think you've been exposed to chancroid , get examined and treated immediately to avoid any complications.
Also, how long does it take for chancroid to go away? Healing usually takes 10 to 11 days, but may take 2 weeks. Buboes may need to be drained with a needle (aspirated) under local anesthesia and scarring may occur from those that burst on their own. Chancroid is a local infection that has no long -term effects.
