Were you looking for information about Syphilis? Syphllis is a common misspelling of syphilis.
Many people with syphilis have no visible sores or rashes and do not know they are infected. This sexually transmitted disease is caused by a bacterium called Treponema pallidum and is spread through direct contact with sores during sex, which may occur on the external genitals, vagina, or anus. Treatment options for syphilis will depend on the stage of the disease, what symptoms are present, and the person's age and general health. Penicillin is the preferred drug used to treat the condition at all stages.
