Syphilis Is Coming Back And Its A Matter Of Concern

We have always kept sex as a matter of hush-hush. We don't discuss it in broad daylight, or under any light. That is why the sexually transmitted diseases are also not discussed naturally. Henceforth, the awareness remains zero.

Syphilis is one such disease. Many of us, who at least keep information should stop me here and say "Excuse me, you should say Syphilis was. It has been eradicated!

We "thought" it was wiped off. But, to our horror, it is coming back. And we must stay aware about it.

The origin of this disease is hotly disputed

The origin of this disease is hotly disputed

It has always been a matter of debate that syphilis was existing in Europe prior to Columbus' visit to America or not. Some say it was a product of new world and was taken back with the explorers. Some recent findings have put the 'Columbus Theory' in limelight, which kind of solves the dispute.

Syphilis can cause a range of symptoms, if not cured

That shame of carrying sexually transmitted disease makes many feel ashamed to go for treatment. Those who don't seek medical help, here's what they might have to deal with their whole lives. A sore or open, wet ulcer, which is called a chancre, appears. You may have just one chancre or a few. Chancres usually appear about three weeks after infection, but may take up to 90 days. Rashes appear all over your body, which are generally non-itchy.

What if it's not cured at all?

The results can be devastating. Syphilis can be passed from a mother to a child. That is called congenital syphilis. Without treatment, it causes the face to rot away. What is the fault of an innocent child to face such a traumatic experience as this? None, right?

Despite of widely available treatment, the rate of syphilis is on rise

Though Syphilis is curable and the treatment isn't rare, the rate of Syphilis is growing with time, whereas it should decrease. The Centers for Disease Control has found out that the rate of this disease has increased all over the world. And among the affected people, maximum percentage is of men.

To freak out or not to freak out- is that the question?

To freak out or not to freak out- is that the question?

So what do we do? Freak out and panic? No .. not yet. We need to be aware about it. Having sex with proper precautions is definitely the best way. But if not prevented, then also it can be cured. Proper treatment in early stages is all what we need.
We shouldn't let it ruin our lives. Let's ruin Syphilis, for once and for all.

Loved this? Spread it out then
