  • How do I know if I have syphilis? How is Syphilis treated?

    Hi DTAP,

    I have read from your website that https://www.dtapclinic.com/articles/...es-and-rashes/ Syphilis will disappear when it reaches Secondary stage.

    Can any syphilis test diagnose this? How is Syphilis treated at this stage?
    Syphilis symptoms can be classified into three stages of: primary syphilis, secondary syphilis and tertiary syphilis. Syphilis testing & treatment is important

    Hi 4321FM,

    The good news is yes, syphilis can be diagnosed at all stages. We do not rely merely on symptoms and signs to diagnose it - a blood test provides definitive diagnosis.
    Syphilis is treatable at all stages. This will usually involve a penicillin injection (the actual dosage depends on how long ago the syphilis was acquired, etc).

    If you have a concern about possible syphilis, I would encourage you to drop by our clinic for a consult and some tests as syphilis is an infection which should be detected and treated early.
