How is Syphilis treated?
Syphilis is treated with antibiotics. In early stages, a single injection of penicillin may be all that is necessary (other antibiotics are available in oral form for those allergic to penicillin). Later stages of the illness could require more aggressive treatment, possibly in a hospital. If syphilis is diagnosed during latent stages, increased injections of penicillin will be required to clear it up.
Screening can be carried out for free at a sexual health (GUM) clinic, and will involve examination of the genitals, rectum, as well as blood tests to rule out the presence of any other STIs. Blood tests will detect the presence of antibodies, which the body produces in large quantities, to help fight the bacteria.

You are not considered fully recovered from syphilis until all of the sores are entirely healed. In addition, if the disease had progressed to the point of organ damage, this damage is irreversible.
Sexual activity should be avoided until all sores are healed completely. Having sex prior to this could cause the infection to spread to your partner. Additionally, it is imperative that your sexual partners be informed of your condition, as they should be tested and, if needed, treated. It is possible to be re-infected with syphilis, so you should avoid sex with any partner who has not been tested and/or treated.
Homeopathic Treatments for Syphilis
Although homeopathic treatments can not replace medical treatments that are necessary for syphilis, they can help to improve the condition and help to relieve and improve many of the symptoms that are often associated with syphilis. Just select the homeopathic treatment that has the description that best matches the individuals current condition, as well as any of the accompanying symptoms.
Mezereum and Stillingia for Syphilis
Mezereum is a homeopathic treatment that should be used by those with syphilis that affects the shin bones, usually causing extreme pain throughout the night making it difficult to sleep. Those that will benefit from this homeopathic treatment tend to have swelling of the shinbones, as well as pain that worsens with even the slightest touch, as well as light activity and movement.
Stillingia should be used by those with syphilis that have severe pain that affects the bones, especially those in the legs or arms. This homeopathic treatment works especially well for those with extreme pain that affects both the head as well as the shin bones.
Asafoetida and Carbo Animalis for Syphilis
Asafoetida is a homeopathic treatment that works well for those with bone pains that worsen throughout the night. This homeopathic treatment works best for those that also have ulcerations that are extremely sensitive and discharge small amounts of pus. This homeopathic treatment is also beneficial to those with caries of the bone or necrosis that is caused by syphilis.
Carbo animalis should be used by those with syphilis that have mercury abuse. This homeopathic treatment should only be taken by those that have blotches on the skin that are the color of copper. These blotches are usually found on the face, but can occur on other parts of the body as well.
Although homeopathic treatments can be very beneficial for those with syphilis and relieving and improving the accompanying symptoms, homeopathic treatments should not used to replace medical attention. Medical treatments are necessary for syphilis, and syphilis needs to be treated in the early stages before it progresses into a more severe condition.
