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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Antibiotic treatment: Forgive my frankness -- if you believe this is syphilis, why are you even asking here? You need to get with a scientific practitioner -- any competent mainstream physician -- and get an accurate diagnosis and an appropriate antibiotic. If superstition or talk from a smiling charlatan is preventing you from doing this, you will pay with your health and perhaps ultimately your life. ...Read more
I have been tested positive for syphilis score of 1:16 started penicillin treatment today. Can i just get hiv? Or does this mean i will later get hiv?
Penicillin: Injectable(intramuscular) penicillin remaims the treatment of choice for all stages of syphilis. If the patient is penicillin allergic, other choices include tetracyclines, macrolides, such as erthromycin and ceftriaxone. Duration of therapy depends on the stage of the disease. Some of the non penicillin treatments suffer from antibiotic resistance. Follow up to insure cure is advised. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on form: The preferred treatment for newly acquired (primary)syphillis is a single dose of penicillin g with avoidance of sexual activity until any primary leasons are healed.

IV Penicillin.: Late infections need IV penicillin for at least 10 days. If the patient is allergic Ceftriaxone can be used. Other kinds of late disease may be treated with once-weekly intramuscular penicillin g for three weeks. If allergic, Doxycycline or tetracycline may be used, for a longer duration. These treatments can stop further progression, but not fully reverse damage already done. ...Read more
Monogamous sex: Syphillis is one of the silent but deadly killers that has been around forever. It is still quite sensitive to penicillin, but its ability to pass unnoticed during sexual contact and masquerade as many other ailments (flu, dermatitis) often leads affected people to ignore early symptoms and spread it without realizing they have it. Condoms and spermacidal agents offer not real protection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clarify please---: "end stage" syphilis is not considered a diagnostic classification. We classify syphilitic infections based on: 1) time from 1st infection (early, late, and late-lantent) 2) syndromes (primary, secondary, tertiary), and 3) CNS effects (neurosyphilis). In all these cases, your treatment options are limited to IV penicillin (for neurosyphilis) or benzithene penicillin (all other forms)- no subs. ...Read more
Syphilis: Yes. But they are not as effective. Many doctors will treat with the second line therapies unless there is brain involvement or a treatment failure to eradicate the syphilis. In this event they work to temporarily desensitize the patient of their penicillin allergy and then give the better treatment. ...Read more

Treating before test: Syphilis can sometimes be hard to treat and it is always good to get a test drawn before treatment so that the correct antibody titters can be followed. But I have treated some patients with high risk exposure before they could test positive. I would like to know more about the situation you are confronting. ...Read more
Treatment for syphilis in 2012. Titer went down to 1:1, f/u 6 months later was non-reactive. Latest f/u at 1 year was 1:1 again. No new exposure. Bad?
No: Rises in titer only count if they're 2-dilution rises. From non-reactive to 1:1 is a 1-dilution rise, and is not felt to be significant. A rise from non-reactive to 1:2 would be significant. However, if you were re-infected with syphilis, your titer would probably be much higher than 1:2. ...Read more
