..Good morning


I got syphilis two months ago and got treated, but it seems I still have it....tired and ears buzzing all the time..Can a test vdrl come negative whereas you have it because of hiv.

Thanks

Fabian,

Treating syphilis and determining whether or not one is cured can be rather tricky, especially for HIVer's. Have you had a TPHA AND your RPR tests done?

Can you guys please go into more detail about HIV and syphillis? I think I have it, however I have been tested 2 times since feb and my clinic says I am negative. I have this rash on the palms of my hands and it comes and goes every 6 months. They're like little red spots and they burn if I touch them and then after a little while its llike I get this area of dead skin that looks like a blister was popped there where the red dots were a few weeks before.


What is a TPHA, a RPR and a VDRL test?

Thanks.

Suntropic98:
bump.
