Syphilis Treatment

If you have been infected for less than a year, your doctor will give you a single injection of penicillin. If you have had syphilis for a year or more, you may need some extra injections over the course of several days.

However, if it is not treated, syphilis can progress to a more dangerous form of the disease and cause serious conditions such as stroke, paralysis, blindness or even death.
