. my husband had syphilis. such as latent syphilis. after 2 years. I have tried injections, but the drug is still active but the syphilis blood check is still reactive.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Syphilis is a disease caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. To be able to answer your question, please be aware of several things:
Is your husband currently experiencing symptoms of certain health problems? What serological tests are carried out that give these reactive results? What antibiotics are given beforehand? Have you received examination and therapy for syphilis? Syphilis is called latent syphilis if there are no clinical symptoms in the patient (primary, secondary or tertiary), but the results of serological examination still show reactive results. You need to know that serological examination for syphilis itself there are various types. Not all serological tests can be used for the diagnosis of latent syphilis. There are provisions and conditions for serological examination that must be met to diagnose a patient experiencing latent syphilis. Some serological tests (treponemal serology) can show reactive results in patients who have had syphilis infection and have received adequate treatment, therefore this test cannot be used to follow up patients who have received therapy.
Therapy given during an acute infection 2 years ago also needs to be known with certainty. It is important to know whether the therapy that is given is adequate to overcome the infection or not (whether the drug is appropriate, whether the dose is right). Therefore, to interpret whether your husband really has latent syphilis and providing therapy if your husband has latent syphilis, you should discuss it directly with the doctor who treats your husband.
One more important thing to note is the examination and therapy for yourself. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease, so examinations and therapies for sexual partners are very important.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
