WHERE DO SYPHILIS RASHES OCCUR?
Rashes caused by syphilis can appear anywhere. A rash commonly appears on the back, flank, chest or stomach and can also appear on the feet or hands. The best thing you can do, if you think you might have syphilis is to get a blood test. Visit your doctor or local STD clinic. In San Francisco, check out stdtest.org, elsewhere hivtest.org.
Syphilis is spread from person to person by physical contact during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Syphilis infections are treatable and curable with antibiotics. For information about syphilis in general, visit inSPOT.org or various pages on www.sfcityclinic.org.
