hello sir..
welcome to healthcaremagic,
wel i want to inform u that vdrl test is positive in two cases
1) u are having syphilis
2)u had syphilis and got treated recently for it.. as the antibodies of the bacteria causing syphilis remains in body for few months after the treatment..

wel in both cases i advice you to go for a confirmatory test for syphilis which is ( FTA ABS) test.. if u were negative in this ftabas test then you are not having any disease and u can use ftabas confirmatory test as medical clearance.. if ftaabs test is positive then get treated for syphilis by a nearby skin and vd specialist..
dont worry even if u get syphilis positive in cofirmatory test as it is very easily treatable disease..

i hope this solves ur query..
thankyou ,
Dr kori geetish
