Being one of the most widespread sexually transmitted infections these days, people should be very careful and aware of syphilis. This disease is caused by bacteria that is transmitted through sexual contact (anal, oral, or vaginal) and can easily be passed on from one person to another.
How to treat Syphilis
So, if you believe you have contracted syphilis, we advise you to go get tested and see a doctor to determine the best treatment solution for your condition. Here are some examples of treatment medication that doctors usually prescribe for syphilis patients:
- Benzathine penicillin – this is usually prescribed to adults who have primary syphilis or secondary syphilis
- Benzathine penicillin G – this is for adults who are suffering from early latent syphilis, late latent syphilis, or tertiary syphilis
- Aqueous crystalline penicillin G – this is for adults who have syphilitic eye disease or neurosyphilis
- Procaine penicillin – an alternative treatment for adults with syphilitic eye diseases or neurosyphilis
There are other treatment medication options, so better talk to a doctor to know what the best plan is for you.
