Do You Need Further Examination If The VDRL Test Is Negative?
I want to ask … if the VDRL lab examination is non-reactive (negative), do you need further TPHA examination or just the VDRL examination because the results are also negative, please enlighten them …
From the information you have conveyed, if you get a negative VDRL test result, it indicates that the syphilis screening result does not reveal syphilis disease. So that further examination with the TPHA is not necessary.
However, if you do not further prevent the risk of transmitting syphilis infection, by avoiding risky sex, then the possibility of sexually transmitted infections can occur. Therefore, examination is an evaluative form, but prevention and adopting a healthy lifestyle are important points against the long-term risk of handling sexually transmitted infections.
However, however, you should consult directly with a dermatologist and genitalia specialist to confirm the results of the examination that you have done with your clinical condition. So that your doctor can ensure further steps related to this condition, whether it is necessary to carry out further TPHA examinations or not.
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
