Some symptoms are Skin rash, usually on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet Sores called mucous patches in or around the mouth, warty patches (called condemnatory lata) in the genitals or skin folds Fever General ill feeling-loss of appetite-muscle aches-joint pain-swollen lymph nodes-vision changes-hair loss. You can get syphilis by direct contact with a syphilis sore during anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Sores can be found on the penis, vagina, anus, in the rectum, or on the lips and in the mouth.Yes, syphilis can be cured with the right antibiotics from your health care provider. However, treatment will not undo any damage that the infection has already done.
