Syphilis is a bacterial infection that’s usually caught by having sex with someone who’s infected.
It’s important to get tested and treated as soon as possible if you think you might have syphilis, as it can cause serious problems if it’s left untreated.
It can usually be cured with a short course of antibiotics. However it is important to bear in mind that you can catch syphilis more than once, even if you’ve been treated for it before.
