During the second stage of syphilis, you may experience skin rashes and a sore throat. The rash won’t itch and is usually found on your palms and soles, but it may occur anywhere on the body. Some people don’t notice the rash before it goes away.
Other symptoms of secondary syphilis may include:
- swollen lymph glands
- weight loss
- hair loss
- aching joints
These symptoms will go away whether or not you receive treatment. However, without treatment you’ll still be infected.
