Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that progresses in three stages. In the first stage, syphilis presents as painless ulcers on the genitals or mouth. During the second stage, syphilis develops into a rash or painless ulcers and sores on the palms and bottoms feet. The third stage may occur years after the condition is contracted, but it can be extremely detrimental to health. It’s important to treat syphilis as soon as possible.
