A superinfection is defined as an infection that occurs based on an earlier infection. In order for a superinfection to occur an individual would need to come in contact with a certain sub strain of syphilis. If a particular strain of syphilis comes in contact with another strain a cross contamination may occur. As a result the bacterial infection might be resistant to certain medications. However, a superinfection isn't likely to occur from syphilis. It's important to get tested for syphilis and retested for the virus. Sometimes medication such as penicillin don't always cure the virus. In some cases different antibiotics may have to be used.
