Can Syphilis Turn Into HIV If Not Treated?
, does it get syphilis but is not treated to become HIV?
Hello Bro, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. We will explain what syphilis you are asking about.
Basically syphilis or lion king is an infection caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. And syphilis is included in one type of sexually transmitted infection (STI) because in general this infection is spread through intimate contact, but it can also be spread through the sufferer's blood.
HIV and syphilis are diseases that can be transmitted through sexual contact, but the causes of both are very different. HIV is caused by a virus called Human Immunodeficiency Virus. Where this virus will attack the sufferer's immunity and cause a set of symptoms and signs known as AIDS. But syphilis will not cause HIV complications. But if HIV has infected someone, then that person will later be easily infected with syphilis because the body's immunity against syphilis infection does not work.
Because the routes of transmission are the same between syphilis and HIV, the way to prevent the infection of HIV and syphilis is by not changing sexual partners, and not having risky sexual relations. Also do not try to use prohibited substances especially those consumed with syringes that are used interchangeably. Thus we can convey, hopefully answering your questions. thanks.
