Homeopathy Medicine for Syphilis
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that is typically spread through sexual contact and manifests as a painless sore on the mouth, genitalia, or rectum.
Early syphilis is curable, sometimes with a single injection of penicillin, but untreated syphilis can cause serious damage to our heart, brain, or other organs and can even be fatal. Syphilis can also be passed from mothers to unborn children. After the initial infection, the syphilis bacteria can remain dormant (inactive) in our body for decades before becoming active again.
Symptoms of Syphilis
You may be infected with syphilis and not experience symptoms for years. Syphilis develops in stages, and symptoms change with each stage. However, the stages may overlap and symptoms don’t always appear in the same order.
A small sore, known as a chancre (SHANG-kur), which appears at the site where the bacteria entered your body, is the first sign of syphilis. While most syphilis patients only develop one chancre, some experience multiple chancres, this is not always the case.
Because the chancre is typically painless and can be concealed within the vagina or rectum, it usually appears about three weeks after exposure and will naturally heal in three to six weeks, making it difficult for many syphilis sufferers to detect their condition.
Within a few weeks of the original chancre healing, some people also experience hair loss, muscle aches, fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes.
Syphilis can progress from the secondary stage to the hidden (latent) stage, which can last for years without symptoms, if you don’t get treated for it. If you don’t get treated, the signs and symptoms may never come back, or the disease may advance to the third (tertiary) stage.
In the late stage of the disease, which may occur many years after the initial, untreated infection, the disease may harm your brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones, and joints. About 15% to 30% of syphilis patients who don’t receive treatment will experience complications known as late (tertiary) syphilis.
Syphilis has the potential to progress at any stage and, among other things, harm the brain, nervous system, and eyes (ocular syphilis) as well as other organs.
Most newborns with congenital syphilis have no symptoms, though some develop a rash on the palms of their hands and soles of their feet. Later signs and symptoms may include deafness, teeth deformities, and saddle nose, where the bridge of the nose collapses. Babies born to women who have syphilis can become infected through the placenta or while giving birth.
Causes of Syphilis
The bacteria that cause syphilis, known as Treponema pallidum, enter your body through small cuts or abrasions in your skin or mucous membranes. Syphilis is contagious during its primary and secondary stages, as well as occasionally in the early latent period. The most common method of transmission is through contact with an infected person’s sore during sexual activity.
Syphilis can also, less frequently, be transmitted from infected mothers to their unborn children during pregnancy or childbirth (congenital syphilis) or through direct, unprotected close contact with an active lesion (like during kissing).
Using the same toilet, bathtub, clothing, or eating utensils won’t spread syphilis, and neither will sharing doorknobs, hot tubs, or swimming pools.
Syphilis does not come back on its own after treatment, but you can get it again if you come into contact with someone who has a sore from the disease.
If you do any of the following, you run a higher risk of getting syphilis:
- Engage in unprotected sex
- Have relationships with several people
- a man who engages in male sex
- Virus that causes AIDS, HIV, is present in them.
Syphilis increases the risk of contracting HIV and, in women, can cause complications during pregnancy. Syphilis can cause damage to every part of your body if left untreated, and treatment can help prevent future damage but cannot repair or undo damage that has already taken place.
