    Does syphilis go away on its own?

    Syphilis does not go away on its own. Though the symptoms of syphilis may heal over time, the infection can remain dormant in the body for years and even decades.

    How do you cure syphilis?

    The type of treatment you need depends on how long you've had syphilis. Syphilis that has lasted less than 2 years is usually treated with an injection of penicillin into your buttocks, or a 10-14 day course of antibiotic tablets if you can't have penicillin.

    Can syphilis be cured at any stage?

    There are a few different methods of treating syphilis, which also depend on the stage of the infection. Early-stage syphilis can be treated with antibiotics, while late-stage syphilis may require surgery or radiation therapy. The most common antibiotic used to treat syphilis is penicillin.
