Acyclovir or valacyclovir will not cure syphilis.

These are used to treat viral infections .

Syphilis is a bacterial infection.

Penicillin in injectable form is the standard treatment for syphilis.

If somebody is allergic to penicillin, then other antibiotics like doxycycline,tetracycline or erythromycin are used.

You should consult your doctor for proper treatment.
