Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Thank you for your post.
There is no chance of getting any of the STDs in the way that you have mentioned.
The syphilis test can be positive for years and years. So you may have gotten the infection a few years back and the positive test does not mean a recent infection.
Let me know if you have more questions.

It is not possible for you to get syphilis from the outpatient department, that is for sure.
Even if the person had syphilis it is not transmitted in this way.
I personally think that you should have a confirmatory test done for syphilis after the screening test was found to be positive if you have not had that done already.
If you have not had sex there are only two possibilities:
1. Either the first test was wrong
2. The second test was wrong.
So a confirmatory test will let us know.
