How Long Does Syphilis Heal?
Good evening? R nI want to ask how long the healing process for syphilis after injecting penicillin on the right and left
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. Apart from sexual intercourse, this disease can also be transmitted through the patient's body fluids such as blood, or by sharing needles so that injecting drug users and owners of tattoos or piercing also have an increased risk of developing this disease.
Because it is caused by bacteria, this disease needs to be treated with antibiotics, one of which is penicillin. Penicillin is given by injection and if a person is allergic to this drug, another drug will be given. If you have been infected with these bacteria for less than a year, then you will only need one injection to stop the disease from progressing. If it has been more than one year, additional doses may be required.
Regarding your question, the actual healing process depends on your condition and the type of syphilis. In general, the healing process takes 14 days, but it may take longer in some cases. In spread syphilis, or syphilis that is already in its late stages, treatment lasts longer and the drug is given intravenously.
So our advice, follow your doctor's recommendations with regular controls to find out the progress of your disease, and if possible, also check your sexual partners so that you and your partner are free from the disease. Avoid sexual intercourse until you are declared cured of this disease. In the future, avoid multiple partners, and have sexual intercourse with people who are at risk of having sexually transmitted diseases, through oral, vaginal or anal sex. If you are going to have children later, you should tell your obstetrician about your medical history to check again. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
