Rash began saturday took Azithromycin 2G on Sunday at 1pm
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 5 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, Azithromycin is the second line of a drug to treat Syphilis.

Usually, Penicillin and Doxycycline are given for Syphilis treatment.

As you have taken Azithromycin so you can wait for a week to see if your rash is improving or not.

Otherwise, sometimes it can take few weeks to disappear.

And other antibiotics can be prescribed by your doctor also.

I self-medicated as it was over the weekend. Can my doctor treat me with penicillin right away tomorrow or should I wait a week to seek new treatment?
Doctor: Onlinedoc, Doctor replied 5 months ago

Your doctor may prescribe you penicillin tomorrow if it was over the week.

You should see your doctor if your rash is persistently same.
