Hello Ms. Febriani Thank you for consulting with us on HealthReplies.com.
Basically syphilis is a type of sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. In addition to being transmitted through sexual contact, syphilis can also be transmitted from pregnant women to their babies. If not treated immediately, syphilis can cause damage to the brain, heart and blood vessels.
In making the initial diagnosis the doctor will conduct a complete medical interview such as symptoms and history that leads to syphilis, besides doing a physical examination as a whole including examinations around the genitals and anus, and besides examining the rash and skin on the mouth and throat. For additional inspection, it is necessary to do:
blood test: to detect the presence of antibodies produced by the body against syphilis. One specific test for detecting syphilis one of which is the Antibody Test. Patients who are syphilis positive will definitely get positive results on this blood test, but the results can also be false positives in syphilis sufferers who have undergone complete treatment, to determine whether an infection is happening now it is necessary to examine more specific blood tests namely RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin). examination of wound sores or ulcers: this is done on syphilis sufferers who have sores on the skin or around the genitals, the sample taken is fluid from the wound. The results will be very accurate to establish a diagnosis of syphilis. If you have doubts, we recommend that you see a doctor or dermatologist to see if it is positive or not. It is likely that the doctor will do a blood test because there are no ulcers or skin lesions that lead to syphilis. You should not engage in risky sexual activities such as changing partners and having sex without safety devices. Because of these two things syphilis can usually be transmitted by one person to another. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thank you
