Never too late to Rx: Syphilis progresses in 3 stages, the initial sore, the blood borne spirochete, and finally crossing the blood brain barrier. Unlike the carol king song "it's too late" from her tapestry album, we rarely see 3rd stage disease because it is usually caught and treated prior to infiltrating the brain. Can that happen in 9 untreated months? It depends on the hosts' resistance and the rapidity of rx. ...Read more

We come from a religious background where treatment is based on faith and home cures. What can we use to treat end stage syphilis?
See a doctor: If you're saying that you have been treating syphilis with home cures, and it has progressed to the tertiary stage, that should tell you something: you could have resolved the problem at an early stage with a shot of penicillin.

If you were unknowingly infected with syphilis and taking penicillin for oral surgery could that inadvertently cure the syphilis infection?
Couldn't hurt: Chances are that the antibiotic will help treat the problem; however, you probably need a longer and stronger dose to cure syphilis.

So, ask Doc timely for detail. ...Read more
