What is the best treatment for syphilis?
Syphilis is a serious sexually transmitted infection that can cause severe, long-term health problems if left untreated. But fear not, my adventurous friends! There are plenty of treatments out there to help you get rid of this pesky little bugger once and for all. So buckle your seat belts and let’s take a wild ride through the wacky world of syphilis remedies!
Symptoms: What are You Dealing with Here?
Before we dive into treatment options like cannonballs into a swimming pool, let’s first make sure we understand what symptoms one may be experiencing after contracting syphilis.
Pain-free sores on or around genitals: This is usually the first sign that someone has acquired syph. These painless sores (known as chancres) will appear within 3-4 weeks after infection.
Skin rash: A few weeks after getting infected, some folks develop a body rash made up typically of small red spots scattered across their torso. They might also see these rashes pop up elsewhere “wherever skin contact was made…” you know what I’m talking about
Fever & sore throat: Just like any other cold or flu season… Except it comes from being too hot in bed when that fine looking guy//girl ended up dripping more than sweat over you.
If any combination/effects such as these shows up on your doorstep ringing bells informing you have won an award –coughs– infections STIs “then its high-time” (or low time depending on one’s preferences) – “to seek professional medical assistance.” And now onto those “Fun” remedies…
Traditional Treatments: Like Your Grandma used to Make!
Penicillin is considered the most effective antibiotic at treating syphilis, no matter what stage of the disease you are in. A single injection of penicillin can cure early-stage syphilis as well as late-stage ones.
Other antibiotics that might be considered when penicillin is unavailable or contraindicated include:
These other antibiotics can take longer to clear your infection with more complicated treatments required for late stages infections though a good way to pass time…just kidding, it’s miserable.
DIY Remedies: “Grandma Advise”!
Now I bet some folks out there are thinking “I don’t need no stinking doctor! I got this myself!” Well, we admire the self-reliant spirit but gather round my little lost lambs and hear what some people have tried:
Essential Oils: Dabbing on tea tree oil could alleviate symptoms caused by an open sore.” It may also assist during healing stages where scarring occurs from wounds – unless you want to leave reminders of past “successful” moments behind; Did someone refer me to a ‘Hipster’?
Dietary changes: Traditional Chinese medicine advises foods rich in Chi (Yes, life force) like grains and fruits energizes Xing Qi -the chestnut-sized gland lying below one’s prostate followed by regular doses of KFC it should help right?
Herbal Remedies: Some herbs like Haru Nomi used in Judo can help boost ones immunity maybe not against flip throws …but syph will cower away ~~like a white belt facing off against Mayweather~~.
So whatever floats your boat yeah!!
Alternative Treatments: In search of SWEAT Harmony
“Alternative treatments,” Now who wouldn’t love these– sounds adventurous must admit.
(Here comes that lovely accentuate inflection): SOBADA MASSAGE: While being rubbed down with tortillas is a Mexican remedy and only helps prevent sores one does not have yet, the SOBADA MASSAGE works on your kahunas getting energy chi flows re-energized now get ready to kick that “syph” outta’ town.
Acupuncture: With needle pokes and pressure points Chinese practitioners iron body/dismemberment treatment can solve any imbalance in life force ensures syphilis gets thrown down aka “Ground n Pound”!
We also dabbled here –in a technique called SWEAT Harmony where urine/ sweat therapies balance bodily fluids removes toxins. While home DIY’s often suggest drinking apple cider vinegar… “Trust me one word Urine!”
