Syphilis

Syphilis is a bacterial infection that's usually caught by having sex with someone who's infected.

It's important to get tested and treated as soon as possible if you think you might have syphilis, as it can cause serious problems if it's left untreated. It can usually be cured with a short course of antibiotics.

You can catch syphilis more than once, even if you've been treated for it before.

Symptoms

The symptoms of syphilis aren't always obvious and may eventually disappear, but you'll usually remain infected unless you get treated.

Some people with syphilis have no symptoms.

Symptoms can include:

  • small, painless sores or ulcers that typically appear on the penis, vagina, or around the anus, but can occur in other places such as the mouth
  • a blotchy red rash that often affects the palms of the hands or soles of the feet
  • small skin growths (similar to genital warts) that may develop on the vulva in women or around the anus in both men and women
  • white patches in the mouth
  • tiredness, headaches, joint pains, a high temperature (fever), and swollen glands in your neck, groin or armpits

If it's left untreated for years, syphilis can spread to the brain or other parts of the body and cause serious, long-term problems.

What to do if you think you have syphilis

You should get tested as soon as possible if you're worried you could have syphilis, because:
  • syphilis won't normally go away on its own
  • getting tested is the only way to find out if you have it
  • the medicines used to treat syphilis are only available on prescription – you can't buy them yourself
  • treatment can help reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others and of serious problems developing later on
