Treatment For Syphilis
In general, the main treatment for syphilis or lion king is by injection of penicillin antibiotics. Penicillin dosage varies by the sufferer, depending on the condition. To overcome syphilis that is still in its early stages, penicillin injection is enough once (a single dose). While in advanced syphilis, an additional dose is required according to the doctor’s instructions.
Syphilis is a curable disease, especially if it is quickly detected and treated. If syphilis are treated when organ damage has occurred, treatment for syphilis cannot repair organ damage.
Penicillin antibiotics are also given to pregnant women who have syphilis and babies born to mothers suffering from syphilis. For syphilis sufferers or lion kings allergic to penicillin, discuss the benefits and risks of using penicillin. Ask your dermatologist if there is a substitute for penicillin.
After being injected with penicillin antibiotics, some syphilis sufferers can feel the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. This reaction can cause symptoms such as fever, headache, and muscle aches or joint pain. This reaction is not a serious condition and usually only lasts for one day.
Alternative antibiotics in patients who are allergic penicillin or if penicillin is not available are:
- Doxycycline 2 x 100 mg per orally for 14 days for primary and secondary stage, or for 28 days for latent syphilis.
- Azithromycin 2 grams per oral single dose for the primary stage.
The recommended therapeutic regimen for tertiary syphilis other than neurosyphilis in older persons is benzathine penicillin G 2.4 million intramuscular IU every week for 3 weeks.
In neurosyphilis and ocular syphilis recommended administration of aqueous crystalline penicillin G 18-24 million IU per day (3-4 million units IV every 4 hours or continuously) for 1 0-14 days with an alternative regimen procaine penicillin 2.4 million intramuscular IU per day plus probenecid 500 mg orally 4 times a day for 10-14 days.
Treatment for syphilis in pregnancy
In pregnant women, treatment for syphilis is the same as treating syphilis in general. However, the only antibiotic drug that can be used is penicillin.
In mothers who are in the third trimester of pregnancy and are diagnosed with syphilis at an early stage, the way to treat it is to use penicillin antibiotics injected weekly within a period of two weeks.
If the sufferer has penicillin allergy, then the sufferer will be given desensitization (allergy reduction procedure) first before being given a penicillin injection.
Babies born with syphilis who have completed their treatment more than four weeks before delivery still need to get an examination.
However, if the patient completes treatment in less than four weeks, does not use penicillin treatment, has a history of unclear treatment, or after birth the examination of the baby cannot be ascertained, then the baby will be given penicillin injections.
