Syphilis

Features

  1. This is a less common STI and more common in MSM interval

2. Spread by unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex, sharing sex toys, direct skin contact with someone who has syphilis sore/syphilis rash

3. If you are diagnosed with syphilis you will need to be treated at a specialist GUM clinic

4. This is a serious infection if left untreated

Stages of the Infection

First stage

Usually starts with one or more painless sores/ulcers (known as a chancre) usually on the genitals. These sores are very infectious but will heal without treatment in 2-6 weeks. By this time the bacteria will spread to other parts of the body leading to

Second Stage

Person is still infectious at this stage. Symptoms can include a body rash, often seen on palms of the hands and soles of feet, flu-like virus, white patches in the mouth

Latent Stage

When syphilis remains untreated, without any signs or symptoms of infection, it is known as latent stage

Third Stage

Untreated syphilis may after many years , start to cause serious damage to other body parts including heart, brain, bones and nervous system

All stages are treatable and curable apart from the third stage which usually occurs MANY years after having the infection which has not been treated. Treatment at this stage can still prevent the spread of infection but damage done to other body organs is not reversible
