Syphilis is a sexually transmitted bacterial infection that is not as common as it used to be. The infection can be present in the genital area, lips, mouth, or anus of both males and females.
The early stage of infection usually causes a small painless sore. If left untreated, it can cause a non-itchy skin rash, sometimes on your hands and feet. Many people infected with Syphilis do not notice the symptoms for years. Symptoms can disappear and re-emerge in the future. It is possible to cure Syphilis with antibiotics.
