Brief Answer:
Doxycycline.

Detailed Answer:
HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Before advising medications to treat Syphilis , one thing you need to know is Home STD tests may show false positive result. You need to get it confirmed by other specialised test.

In patient's allergic to Pencillin , Doxycycline is the best alternative . It comes as tablets and need to be taken for 14 days. But again you need a valid prescription from the doctor to get this drug .

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.
