I got the Syphilis and I got the treatment.Penicillin injection 1 times per week and totally 3week.But my VDRL 4D is still.How can I get the treatment?
Syphilis can be treated with the correct antibiotic. CDC recommends a single intramuscular injection of long acting Benzathine penicillin G (2.4 million units administered intramuscularly) to cure a person who has primary, secondary or early latent syphilis. Three doses of long acting Benzathine penicillin G (2.4 million units administered intramuscularly) at weekly intervals is recommended for individuals with late latent syphilis or latent syphilis of unknown duration. This treatment will kill the syphilis bacterium and prevent further damage, but it will not repair damage already done. From the information provided it seems you have received appropriate treatment.
You should talk with your doctor about your test results. It could be a false positive and you may need to take another more specific syphilis test called a FTA-ABS test. Is there any chance you have got reinfected?
