Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that can be treated and cured completely if you take proper treatment at the right time.

It has been proved that syphilis can be passed to the baby from an infected mother, so there is a high probability of getting an HIV infection if left untreated.


Symptoms of syphilis happen in mainly 3 stages namely, primary, secondary and late. Most commonly, the symptoms occur three weeks after the infection starts its action on the body. During the primary stage, a painless and round ulcer appears on the infected site. Notably, it needs a prior treatment to avoid the next stage.

In the secondary stage of syphilis, a non-itchy rash appears on the palms of hand and below the feet. Usually, the rash will be cured by its own but will result in entering into the next stage, if kept untreated. The late stage will commence when all symptoms of the disease disappear. The stage can last for years if it is not subjected to treatment.

After one year of the venereal disease, it is known as late latent syphilis. During this stage, it can drastically affect the internal organs and can even get damaged later, cause paralysis and cardiac diseases and even death can happen. Syphilis is also called “The Great Imitator” as you can feel it as a symptom of another disease.
