Customer Question
Can I use amoxicillin...

Can I use amoxicillin to treat possible first stage syphilis? I played with a woman vagina? Am I at risk

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No. It just happened

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing at all. The only sexual contact was my finger on the vagina

Syphillis is only spread via mucus membrane contact with an infected person's syphillis sores. This would only be through vaginal, anal or oral sex. Simply touching the sore with your intact finger would not spread it to you.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
