Syphilis is a common bacterial infection that can result in dire health risks if left untreated. However, those who contract syphilis and get tested for it soon enough after the time of infection need not worry about these consequences as syphilis is curable with a simple course of antibiotics.
Symptoms of syphilis
There is several stages of syphilis, primary, secondary, latent, and tertiary, and like other STDs many of the common symptoms of syphilis are not detectable during certain stages of the infection like secondary and latent, when swollen lymph nodes and mild rashes may be the only suggestions that you might carry the syphilis infection.
The most easily identifiable symptom of syphilis is open sores on or around the genitalia, and if syphilis reaches the tertiary stage the individual can experience serious health complications.
