Then increases the nearby lymph nodes. It is the primary period of syphilis, which lasts six to seven weeks.
Then begins the second period of syphillis, which without treatment lasts 3-4 years. The skin and mucous membranes appear different rashes. Most often, they have a pale pink or reddish-brown color and a clear delimitation of each other. After 15-20 days, the rash disappears, it begins the latent period of syphilis, which apparently does not manifest. Rashes may be repeated several times.
Tertiary syphilis is characterized by the appearance of the skin, mucous membranes, internal organs syphilides - bumps with the collapse of the tissues that heal with scarring. Decay in the vital organs syphilides disrupt their function. Especially affected the central nervous system.

gradually transformed into chronic, characterized by almost complete absence of signs of disease.
Women in the beginning can appear pain and cramps during urination, copious purulent discharge, but very often these symptoms are absent. These asymptomatic leads to the spread of infection to the internal reproductive organs and infertility.

become more and more dense, merge into a conglomerate formed on its surface openings through which pus.
After 1, 5 - 2, the tertiary period begins, which is characterized by scarring, proliferation of the connective tissue and the simultaneous release of pus from the entire surface of the crotch.
The symptoms of granuloma venereum
It also occurs in tropical and subtropical climates. The incubation period - from several days to three months. In place of the introduction of the pathogen appears papule (elevation), which grows in size, at the center of its softening and purulent disintegration of tissue. Formed juicy, not too painful ulcers (one or more), the propagation of which affected large areas of skin. Proceeds chronic disease.
