Syphilis prevention is extremely important. Syphilis is
divided into three stages: primary, secondary and latent or tertiary syphilis.
These stages are determined by clinical findings, such as tests and physical
exams, which are used to guide correct treatment and follow-up.
Syphilis is a curable condition and can be treated with
antibiotics, especially in the early stages. But without treatment, it can lead
to disability, neurological disorders, and even death.
Symptoms typically occur six weeks to 6 months after the chancre
(lesion), and clears up in two to ten weeks WITHOUT treatment; however,
syphilis is still there.
If you have syphilis, you should not have sex until all sex
partners have been tested and treated!!
