    syphillis treatment

    I just got tested syphillis positive in Fullerton hospital. I was not at all sexually active and I donno why I got it. I am a male and right now my doctor has advised me to take three penicillin injection but I have very Low tolerance for buttocks injection based on my past injection . Can u do treatment for me with oral medication ? If yes how Long does it take for me to complete it?
    thanks

    Dear Patient276920,

    We can treat you with oral medications as well. We usually use doxycycline for 2-4 weeks depending on what stage of syphilis you have.

    Having said that, we would recommend the intramuscular injection as first line.

    Thank you
