Syphilis sick of both sexes, the causative agent of the disease equally affects male and female organisms. Syphilis develops in men after contact with a sick person healthy. Facilitates the penetration of the pathogen any injury or abrasion on the skin and mucous membranes. Microcracks or subtle abrasions occur during sexual contact, so this route of transmission is considered to be the main one.
At some point, you can recognize the disease
Once inside the body, the spirochete not immediately causes the development of clinical disease. Symptoms of syphilis in men only appear in a few weeks, which is considered to be a period of incubation. At this stage of the disease a person feels good, his condition is unchanged. Even on closer inspection it is impossible to detect the presence of the disease, since the surface of the skin and mucous membranes remains normal. Only after the completion of the incubation period can be clearly detected the pathological focus on the place of introduction of the pathogen. The first sign of the disease is the presence of the chancre.
Solid chancre has the following clinical manifestations:
- small size
- round or oval
- sharply defined boundaries Education
- absence of pain
- Erosion has a rich red color of meat
How does syphilis
Syphilis - punishment of Venus
men on the first stage of the disease is determined not only by the condition of the body, as well as the influence of environmental factors and living conditions. View chancre is different depending on the location of the primary tumor. The manifestation of syphilis in men in some cases reminiscent of other diseases, which complicates differential diagnosis. If the primary site is localized in the oral cavity in the tonsils can be mistakenly diagnosed with an inflammatory disease or angina
Angina - is it worth it to carry "on their feet"?
At some stage, the relapse
After completion of the initial period, which lasts an average of one and a half months, beginning the second period. The patient appeared diverse cutaneous manifestations. Lesions are found on the skin, mucous membranes, which is a clinical confirmation of the presence of the pathogen in the blood. For the second period is characterized by loss of almost all organs and systems due to disease progression.
Syphilis is a fresh start of the secondary period can be characterized by undulating course. Clinical manifestations in the future disappear, even without a specific treatment.
Treatment of syphilis in men should be carried out without fail, because after a short period of time comes the return of the disease.
This happens not only in the case where the treatment is not performed, and when the treatment regimen was chosen irrationally or the patient did not fulfill all the necessary recommendations. Return of symptoms is clinical evidence of recurrent secondary syphilis. Relapse is replaced by periods of latent syphilis
Latent syphilis - risk of delayed treatment assignment
, With each new recurrence of symptoms become less severe.
Skin elements vary during a relapse, they increase in size and arranged in groups. Each group forms on the skin of some geometric shapes with clear boundaries. The most common arcs, ellipses or garlands that are sufficiently distinctive appearance and help in the diagnosis. Prevent the development of secondary recurrent syphilis can be initiated in a timely manner and at a neat treatment.
Basic principles during treatment for syphilis
The first treatment should not be local, so as local therapy is only of secondary importance. The general course of complex therapy implies that the patient be carefully and thoroughly examined. A survey carried out both before and after completion of treatment to be able to evaluate the effectiveness of the dynamics. This applies particularly to the control of serological tests for blood analysis. Since the beginning of therapy should not be delayed, however, as soon as the diagnosis of syphilis is confirmed, the patient should be under medical supervision and receive appropriate therapy.
Great importance is attached not only to timely initiation of therapy, as well as its intensity. In this regard, it is important to carry out activities that will contribute to the strengthening of the immune system. It is recommended to make sure that the food was full, fortified, exercise
Myths about exercise: do not believe
(taking into account the general state of the body), to conduct a correct way of life, not to drink alcohol or smoke. These factors contribute greatly to the success of the treatment. If it is necessary from the point of view of medical indications, it is possible to assign means of non-specific stimulation of the body's defenses. Treat the patient must be in a way that was not the oppression of the immune system.
Some experts used in the practice of the specific allocation scheme antisifiliticheskih preparations in the form of intermittent treatment. This group of drugs is not indifferent to human health, so it is recommended to take a break after the main course. Make sure that the breaks were not prolonged, so that they do not exceed a few weeks. Otherwise, it may be a situation where prolonged treatment leads to the appearance of resistant forms of the causative agent of syphilis, which relates to the embodiment of complications of the disease.
Syphilis is highly contagious (or infectious) disease, so treatment should be not only the patient but also the people who are with him in close household, sexual contact. There is a concept of preventive treatment when therapy is appointed in the period of incubation of the disease, which is an effective preventive measure.
