What is Syphilis?

Syphilis is a disease caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Syphilis is highly contagious. It’s primarily spread through sexual activity including anal or oral sex.

Occasionally, syphilis can be spread to another person through prolonged kissing. Although it’s spread from sores, most of these sores go unrecognized and the infected person is unaware of the disease.

Symptoms of Syphilis

There are 3 distinct phases of syphilis infections. In the early stage, people will develop one or more sores.

The sores are painless small ulcers that occur on the genitals or around the mouth. They usually first appear 10-90 days after exposure.

The secondary stage involves a rosy “copper penny” rash usually on the palms of the hands or soles of the feet.

They may also develop warts in the groin area, white patches inside their mouth, fever and weight loss.

Testing for Syphilis

At InOut Labs, syphilis is tested through a simple blood test.

Syphilis testing is available only in our Morton Grove clinic You can order a Syphilis test on its own, or as part of one of our STD Panels.

Is Syphilis Curable?

Syphilis is entirely curable and usually with only one dose of antibiotic.
