Hello How old are you and where do you live?
I am 18 years old and I live in Sydney
Why did you need to come to the hospital?
I think I might have a S.T.I : syphilis
What makes you think that?
Those are the symptoms of syphilis but it can only be caused by a spirochete (a spiral-shaped bacteria) called Treponema pallidum. You can get the bacteria in the following ways: direct contact with a syphilis sore (usually found on the vagina, anus, rectum, in the mouth, or on the lips) during vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person.
I have gotten some symptoms including painless ulcers, sores, vaginal discharge, or wart-like growths on genitals, rashes, small bump, or ulcers
Is there anything you can do to help me?
You need antibiotics: stops growth of or kills bacteria or penicillin antibiotics: stops growth or kills specific bacteria
Is there anything else i can do to prevent it
You can see a infectious disease doctor: Treats infections, including those that are tropical in nature or see a general practitioner(GP): Prevents, diagnoses and treats diseases
