This guy wore a condom but still got infected!

The organism touched the base of his penis and caused a lesion called a “condom chancre”.

This is an example of how condoms don’t always work.

Symptoms –

Syphilis occurs in three forms:


*          *           *          *          *

1) Primary Syphilis (click to view)

Painless lesions or sores called “chancres” occur at the site of sexual contact, usually on your penis. Sores appear about 3 weeks after having sex with an infected person and can be small or large and can freak you out when you see one on your penis. Easy to treat and prevent further disease. If untreated, the sores may actually disappear for a while, but the disease is still active.


*          *           *          *          *

2) Secondary Syphilis (click to view)

If primary syphilis is untreated, the initial sore on your penis will go away but hundreds of sores can appear all over the body in 4-6 weeks. Each lesion contains the organisms that causes the disease and can be contagious. Can be treated with antibiotics to prevent further problems.


*          *           *          *          *

3) Late Syphilis (click to view) 

Without treatment of secondary syphilis, internal de
struction to many body organs can appear many years later. May cause blindness, mental illness because of brain infection, and other terrible incurable problems.


*          *           *          *         *

Treatment –

 – Primary and secondary cases easily treated and cured with antibiotics.

 – No home remedies or over-the-counter drugs work.


*          *           *          *          *

Recurrence –

 – Having Syphilis before does NOT protect a person from getting it again.


*          *           *          *          *

Prevention –

 – Only 100% completely safe option – choose not to have sex!

 – Condoms may work if used properly but only the part of the penis covered by the condom will be protected.  Any other unprotected body area that touches the organism can get a sore.
