The Different Stages of Syphilis Infection and the Symptoms.

Syphilis is spread from person to person through direct contact with a syphilis sore.

Sores occur mainly on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. It can also occur on the lips and in the mouth. Transmission of the organism occurs during vaginal, anal, or oral sex.

The symptoms of early syphilis is usually mild and difficult to recognise. In faction, it was called “the great imitator” as many of the symptoms of infection is not distinguishable from other diseases.
