First answer by Yulia Crowder. Last edit by Yulia Crowder.
This is an infection usually sexually transmitted through direct contact with a syphilitic person's injury. It is manifested by one or more sores on the genital organ or rarely on another part of the body that appears between 10 and 90 days (21 days on average) from infectious contact. This lesion is painless and can disappear without treatment after 4 to 6 weeks. Often the patient does not seek treatment during the incubation phase because there is no outward sign. Syphilis is not spread by toilet seats, daily activities, hot tubs, or sharing eating utensils or clothing
