How to prevent syphilis contagion
Syphilis is not a disease confined to the past. In the past it was one of the most dangerous and deadly disease until the discovery of penicillin. Today, it is one of the most frequent sexually transmitted infection, that can weaken the body or even cause death if not treated properly.
There are no vaccines for this disease. The only way to ensure that there is no contagion is to abstain from sex or to practice it with a stable partner who is not infected. Proper use of condoms, though they do not fully guarantee avoiding the contagion, they greatly reduce they risk, so that they should always be used in any sexual relationship with another person other than the regular partner.
Therefore, in case of possible symptoms or possible exposure to infection, we recommend a medical test to determine an early diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
What to do if you have been diagnosed with shypilis?
It is the duty of the person who has been diagnosed with the disease to communicate it to his/her partner or people they had sex with. This will allow analysis of possible infection in other people and will ease an advanced treatment, that will facilitate the healing and make it more difficult to expand.
Only a doctor, using the appropriate analysis, can assure that a sick person is completely healed. The cure for this disease does not protect the individual from any further infections.
Syphilis usually occurs in association with other sexually transmitted diseases, so when diagnostic tests are performed, the usually also include tests for other diseases as well as chlamydia, gonorrhea or AIDS.
