Were you looking for information about Syphilis? Syphyllis is a common misspelling of syphilis.
Although many people with syphilis have no visible sores or rashes, the infection can still be transmitted through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. When sores develop, they generally occur on the external genitals, vagina, anus, lips, or in the rectum or mouth. Prompt treatment for syphilis is necessary, as the disease may lead to serious complications and can be fatal if left untreated. Penicillin is the preferred drug used to treat the infection at all stages.
