See your doctor: The antibiotic to be chosen and the route of administration and dosage and duration will depend upon the stage of the disease and your ability to tolerate a particular drug. Get treated asap, because late stage syphilis can be devastating.

Sexually.: Transmission of syphilis occurs via direct contact with an infected lesion during sex. Syphilis can also be spread by kissing or touching a person who has active lesions on the lips, mouth, breasts, or genitals. It is treated with antibiotics, specifically benzathine penicillin g as an injection. Penicillin-allergic patients can use doxycycline.
