Is syphilis always curable?

In just about all cases syphilis is completely curable. A small percent of the time an individual could catch a cross strain of syphilis that is resistant to antibiotics. When an antibiotic is given a follow-up appointment is usually given within two weeks. If the person is negative a follow-up visit is usually given within three months. If the virus hasn't cleared the body a doctor prescribes a different antibiotic. Syphilis is curable because it's a bacteria infection rather than a virus.

Syphilis could remain in the body for years. An individual may not experience symptoms of the bacteria. During the late stages of syphilis the bacteria could do permanent damage to the organs and potentially affect the mind. This usually takes years.
