How is Syphilis chronic? Members state they have it? I thought it was curable?
Syphilis is curable with the proper medication. The infection is easier to cure in the early stages. If a person
has syphilis for a long period of time the infection will still be cured but any damage that is done could be
permanent. Untreated syphilis progresses into more advantaged stage. A person could have syphilis for
years and not realize it.
It is important to get tested for the infection during a regular sexually transmitted disease checkup.
