What care can be taken for syphilis?

I was recently diagnosed with syphilis. I was treated with a penicillin shot and another shot, i can t remember the name of the other shot. Its been almost a week now. My lymph nodes have gone down but haven t really seen a reduction in the sores on my penis, they have reduced a little bit but not much. My question is...... How long should it be before i start seeing results in regards to my sores going away?

HIV AIDS Specialist 's  Response

It will take 3-6 months to become nonreactive for Syphilis following the appropriate treatment. In late syphilis, it may take more than a year to become non-reactive after the completion of treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
