What is the Cause of Syphilis? 

It is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria called Treponema pallidum. It can be very tough to diagnose. You can have it without appearing any symptoms for a long time. The first sigh of this infection is a tiny, painless sore that appears on sexual organs, mouth, and rectum. Doctors call this sore, chancre.

Symptoms of Syphilis 

Doctors categorize the stage of this infection as either primary, secondary, and tertiary. Syphilis can be contagious during the primary and secondary stages and rarely, the early latent or tertiary phase. The latent period is not infectious, but it has the most dangerous or severe symptoms.

  1. Primary Symptoms

The symptoms of the primary phase involve the appearance of the chancre. These appear ten days to 3 months after the diseasing causing bacteria to enter the body. These tiny sores may resolve within 2 to 6 weeks, but without the right treatment, the infection may remain in your body and progress to the next level or phase.

  1. Secondary Symptoms

It may include;

  • Sores that resemble anal, oral and genital warts
  • A rough, red-brown rash that initiates on the trunk and spreads throughout the body
  • Fever
  • Muscle ache
  • A sore throat
  • Patchy hair loss
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  1. Latent Syphilis 

The latent stage may remain for several years. During this period, the body will harbor the infection without symptoms. Doctors suggest treating Syphilis at this stage.

  1. Tertiary or Late Syphilis 

Tertiary Syphilis can happen 10 to 30 years after the onset of this disease; typically, after a period of latency, there are no symptoms that you can see.

At this phase, Syphilis harms the following organs and organ systems;

  • Blood vessel 
  • Heart
  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Liver

Organ damage means that tertiary Syphilis can often cause death. So, it is critical to treat this infection before this stage.

Treating & Curing Syphilis 

Primary and secondary phases are easy to cure with a penicillin injection. It is one of the most widely utilized antibiotics and is generally effective in treating this infection. If people are allergic to this medicine then doctors will use other antibiotics like;

  • Doxycycline
  • Azithromycin
  • Ceftriaxone

If you have neurosyphilis, you will get a daily dose of penicillin. It will often need a brief hospital stay. Unfortunately, it is challenging to reverse the damage that is due to tertiary Syphilis. The bacteria can be destroyed or killed, but treatment will most likely consider easing discomfort and pain. 

During treatment, ensure to avoid sexual relations with your partner until the sore on you starts healing, and your doctor tells you can safely resume your sexual activity. Don’t begin sexual relations until you and your sexual partner have purely treated.

How to Prevent Syphilis

The ideal way to prevent this infection is to practice safe sex. Always use condoms during any sexual activity. Additionally, it may be helpful too;

  • Use a dental dam during oral sex
  • Avoid sharing your sex toys
  • Get screened for sexually transmitted diseases and also talk to your partner about the results.
