Yes, doctors can treat and cure syphilis if it is detected early. Syphilis can be cured with a single round of penicillin. Since syphilis is caused by a bacterium, antibiotics can eliminate the infection in your body. If you take a Syphilis Test and its results are positive, you are eligible for a phone consultation with one of our doctors. During this call, the doctor can provide more insight on how to move forward with treatment.
Yes, you can get syphilis more than once. Back to back cases often occur in patients whose partners were not also tested and treated or those who did not abstain from sexual activity during treatment or while a sore was still present. Getting treated for syphilis does not protect you from re-infection. We advise getting tested again 3 months after treatment is complete if you tested positive for syphilis to ensure that the bacteria is completely gone.
