why are you worried about having syphilis in your body?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 1 year ago.

Hi Tony,

I'm Dr Chaithanya helping you today.

Shortly after infection, the body produces infection-fighting antibodies, which can be detected with an inexpensive blood test. These antibodies can stay in the blood for months or years after infection. It is difficult to tell from the blood test how long a patient may have had syphilis.

Early stages of disease can be treated with single dose of penicillin.

The complications are only only in 3rd stage, thta affect heart and nerves.

This can be detected by a simple blood test.

It is sexually transmitted, so using barrier contraceptives is important.

Hope I helped you today. If done for now, please leave positive rating [Request to click on the 5th star] above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today.
