Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that, if not treated, can progress into its late stage and result to more difficulties and medical disorders.
No do-it-yourself solutions or over-the-counter medications can successfully treat syphilis. You have to get a doctor's prescription to be provided with the most effective antibiotic treatment to fight off this infection. Antibiotics can kill off the syphilis bacterium and put a stop to more problems, but it cannot fix any serious damage, such as scars, that has already occurred.
If you have been tested positive for syphilis, your infection can be treated with antibiotics. Just one dosage of penicillin is very efficient in addressing the initial phases of syphilis, and the antibiotic also is rather efficient (in greater doses) in dealing with the later phases of the malady. In case the illness advances to the third stage, you could go through permanent harm to your cardiovascular or nervous system.
If are allergic to penicillin, inform your doctor so that he or she can prescribe an alternative antibiotic treatment such as tetracycline or doxycycline. Irrespective of the treatment method, you’ll be called up for follow-up blood tests from time to time for the next several months.
People who are undergoing syphilis treatment have to avoid sexual contact with new mates until the sores, lesions, and other symptoms are gone. All sexual partners have to be alerted about your syphilis infection to enable them to be tested and get treated if they also test positive for syphilis.
