Brief Answer:
No need for any medication.

Detailed Answer:
Dear xxxxxxxx,

Welcome to HCM.

VDRL test result of 1:4 is weak positive and you go for TPHA test for further confirmation after getting consultation with your physician. You need not to take any medicines for syphilis at present. Consult the physician and follow the advice. For any further query feel free to ask me again any time.

Thank You

Brief Answer:
Need to consult a Dermatologist for further opinion.

Detailed Answer:
Dear xxxxxxxxxxx,

Welcome back and thanks for the follow-up.

You need to consult the dermatologist for starting any tablet or injection because I don't think the test result is needed any treatment. You can also apply for abroad. The positive TPHA test result is not likely the cause of ectopic pregnancy so just calm down and take the opinion of your dermatologist.
