Syphilis comes in three stages:
Stage 1 – Painless ulcers usually 2-4 weeks after exposure
Stage 2 – Painless rash, typically on palms of hands or soles of feet, often accompanied by a general unwell feeling
Stage 3 – It starts to attack internally, damaging vital organs
Testing and Treatments:
To test for syphilis you will have a blood test.
If your result is positive the team will arrange an appointment for you to be treated.
The treatment for syphilis is a prescription of antibiotics with treatment lasting 10-14 days.
You will be invited back for a test of cure.
