Syphilis in women: signs, dangers, treatment
The main signs of syphilis in women
At initial terms, syphilis manifests itselfSmall sores that form on the mucous membrane of the vagina and the cervix. Initially, they are small in size pink-colored ulcers, but they grow every day, gaining an increasingly saturated dark red color with a dense base and even margins. In medicine, this condensed base is called chancre, and its main feature is that it can disappear even if treatment has not been performed. Therefore, diagnosing a disease is sometimes very difficult.
Nevertheless, the disease continues to develop,Affecting the blood and lymphatic system. To identify the disease at this stage, for obvious reasons, can only a gynecologist, so in most cases, treatment begins with a delay, when there are already external signs of syphilis. External signs of syphilis in women include rashes in the genital area and just on the skin. There are also noticeable changes in the voice, loss of eyebrows and eyelashes.
At the same time, in some cases, syphilis canNot to manifest itself for a sufficiently long time, that is, to proceed asymptomatically. But if there are even the slightest suspicions of the presence of the disease, it is necessary immediately to see a doctor, since the process of outpatient treatment itself depends on it: the earlier the disease is diagnosed, the easier and faster it can be cured.
Dangers of syphilis
The consequences of syphilis in women can be veryDeplorable. Even complete recovery does not guarantee that during the pregnancy the future child will not be infected. Especially high risk exists when untimely initiation of treatment or when syphilis occurs in severe form. Therefore, if the first symptoms of syphilis were ignored by a woman before or during pregnancy, then she would hardly be able to reproduce a healthy offspring to the world: the child either will be born dead, or the birth will be premature, which will entail complications for both the baby and the mother. In addition, congenital syphilis interferes with the proper development of the child, so even if he survives the birth, no one can guarantee that he will live more than a year.
Treatment of syphilis in women should be carried outAs before pregnancy, and during and after it. Only in this case it is possible to reproduce a completely healthy offspring. If there is no proper treatment for 3-4 years, syphilis goes to the third stage, when slow destruction of all organs and the formation of tubercular wounds on the skin begin, which after healing become scars.
Treatment of syphilis in women
Treatment of any stage of syphilis is based onReception of penicillin. Therefore, even with the appearance of the first signs of illness, a woman should without a trace of embarrassment and necessarily become registered in the dispensary, where after a complete examination and accurate diagnosis with the identified stage of syphilis, she will be prescribed appropriate treatment. In addition, persons who have unprotected sexual contact with the patient also need a full examination with further treatment.
And it is important to understand that it is necessary to treat syphilis exclusively under the supervision of a doctor. Self-medication is fraught with serious consequences, including a possible fatal outcome.
