SYPHILIS

Syphilis is not as common as some sexually transmitted infections but can cause serious health problems if left untreated.    Symptoms and signs can be difficult to recognise.   Early signs (primary symphilis) include skin sores which are usually painless.  The will appear 2-3 weeks after contact with the infection (although they may appear sooner).   

It is important to get tested as soon as possible.  Depending on the time frame, if the first test is negative a repeat test will be arranged at a later date. 

Syphilis is usually treated with an injection of antibiotics (or tablets).
