When to Seek Medical Care
You should also call your doctor if you develop a new rash, sore throat, joint swelling, fever, or any new symptoms during or after the time you are being treated for syphilis.
Although syphilis may be treated in your doctor's office, you should seek emergency care if you have any vision changes, pain with viewing bright lights, a stiff neck, high fevers, or sudden weakness in any part of the body. Syphilis can cause strokes.
