Syphilis is a highly infectious disease that is frequently transmitted via sexual intercourse. So, whether you engage in oral sex, anal sex, or vaginal sex, you are putting yourself at risk of this disease if you fail to use protection and observe the appropriate preventative measures.

Second and Tertiary stage Syphilis

It is very common for people to not realize that they have syphilis until they reach the secondary and tertiary stages of the infection. The reason for this is that the primary stage does not really trigger very noticeable or alarming signs that would push someone to get tested and treated.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of secondary and tertiary syphilis:

Secondary syphilis symptoms

  • fever
  • appetite loss
  • hair loss
  • sores around the mouth and/or genitals
  • skin rash
  • muscle and joint pains
  • vision problems
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • condylomata lata

Tertiary syphilis symptoms

  • bone, skin, and/or liver tumors
  • neurosyphilis and other nervous system disorders
  • heart damage

Do not wait for the secondary and tertiary stages of syphilis to occur. Get tested for syphilis at the earliest opportunity. Use a rapid syphilis screen test kit to get fast and accurate syphilis test results. Buy one from STD Rapid Test Kits now.
