In brief: 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.
