Hello Frans, Thank you for the question.
The initial symptoms experienced by people with HIV and syphilis are not the same. For HIV, in the early stages of infection, sufferers do not experience specific symptoms, usually sufferers have symptoms similar to flu symptoms but these symptoms can last for a long time and recurrence. Symptoms can include fever, joint and muscle pain, headache, skin rashes, vomiting, sore throat, and thrush. On the other hand, in the early stages of syphilis infection (primary syphilis), the patient will experience an injury to the genital area that is not painful. This wound can also be found in the groin and anus area.
If not treated, syphilis can develop into secondary syphilis (skin rashes that appear on the body with other symptoms such as fever, fatigue, sore throat, joint and muscle pain), latent syphilis (infection continues to develop but does not cause symptoms), and tertiary syphilis (infection attacks other organs). Syphilis and HIV are two different infections; if someone has syphilis, it will not develop HIV. However, what you need to remember is that the transmission of syphilis and HIV is similar, namely sexual intercourse with patients without safety, sharing needles with patients such as injecting drug users, receiving contaminated blood transfusions, and from mother to baby they contain. Therefore, someone who has syphilis is also at risk of developing HIV. Usually if someone does / experiences these risky actions, the doctor will do some blood tests. To avoid these infections, of course the best step is to avoid risky actions.
