Inj Penidur 24 lakhs... Only Complete 3 months course.. Exposed partner must be treated.. Penidura LA 12 fortnightly..

What's the type of syphilis , primary.secondary or tertiary also check for HIV status as treatment will depend on all these things

As per treatment advice, Stage might be Late latent syphilis/ tertiary syphilis. Penicillin allergy to be ruled out first. If not sensitive, it can be started. Monitor for any symptoms ( JH reaction) post administration of first dose in next 24hrs. Post completion of the course, Follow with non treponemal tests on every 3 months and a year after. Exposed partner must be treated.

CONTINUE INJECTION PENIDUR 24 LAKHS ON WEEKLY BASIS ,, NO ISSUES.
