Were you looking for information about Syphilis? Syphillis is a common misspelling of syphilis.
Syphilis is a common sexually transmitted disease that can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. The disease, which is caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum, leaves sores on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. Treatment for syphilis will depend on the stage of the disease, what symptoms are present, and the person's age and general health. In most cases, treatment involves penicillin or other antibiotics.
