Syphilis is a sexually transferred virus (STD) caused by the means of a bacterium known as Treponema pallidum. The introduction to this infection leads to an ulcer on the place of infection; on the other hand, the bacteria move all through the body, harming a lot of organs over time.
Medicinal experts explain the route of the syndrome by dividing it into four stages -- primary, secondary, latent, and tertiary (late). An infected individual who has not been treated may infect others during the first two stages, which usually last one to two years.
The bacteria are transferred from the preliminary ulcer of a contaminated individual to the skin or mucous membranes of the genital area, the mouth, or the anus of a sexual colleague. In addition it can exceed through open skin on additional parts of the body. The syphilis bacteria are very easily broken, and the contamination is roughly always spread by sexual touch. In addition to this, an expecting woman with syphilis can transfer the bacteria to her unborn kid, who may be born with serious mental and physical problems as a result of this infection. Majority of the people get syphilis due to sexual intercourse with a person who already has infection.
