Express STD Testing Has A New Post On Syphilis
Express STD Testing is a professional STD testing company that provides more than just STD testing services. The company also provides information about STDS. Recently they have put up a new post to provide syphilis awareness in addition to syphilis testing services.
According to the post, “Syphilis refers to a bacterial infection caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum. Syphilis is transmitted through vaginal sex, anal sex, and oral sex. According to reports by the CDC, there are over 55,000 new cases of syphilis infection in the United States every year. 13,000 of these infections are in the primary and secondary stages, which are the most infectious. In its early stages, syphilis has a cure. If not treated early, the infection can lead to serious complications that are irreversible. Syphilis mimics many other diseases and this leads to many people not knowing they have the infection.”
The post also talked about syphilis symptoms, “When symptoms of syphilis appear, they include chancres or sores that appear on the mouth, lips, penis, vagina, rectum, and anus. For primary syphilis, the sores mostly appear on the genitals and can also appear on the nipples, breasts, anus, tonsils, tongue, lips, and mouth. In most cases, the symptoms can be unnoticed or can be misdiagnose as the flu. Syphilis comes in three stages which are primary stage, secondary stages, and late or latent stage. The infection can become deadly if it is untreated in these stages. Having syphilis can increase the chances of contracting HIV. There are cases of severe brain damage and loss of vision caused by syphilis reported in less than a year.”
