/What can I do if I have syphilis?

You and your sex partner(s) must be examined and treated. If partners are not treated, they can give the infection back to you, or infect others.

You will no longer be contagious once the treatment is completed, however, your blood will continue to show that you have had this infection. Analysis of the blood by your doctor will help determine if your medication worked and if you need any additional treatment.
