Your question is quite an important query and this is an appreciative thing. Often we doctors notice that men are not able to express themselves due to some reasons or the other. Males have this complexity in them that they are the better part of the society and nothing can happen to them .this mentality of men often lead them to that point where they become carriers of sexually transmitted disease. Their ignorance not only harms them but also their partners. Women who are associated with them in things like sexual intercourse are also affected. Since its an obvious fact that women are contracted by these very easily therefore they bear the price of their male partners ignorance which often leads to the position from which women are not able to save themselves form. Syphilis is a disease which shows very less signs or symptoms so it is not advisable to wait for the symptoms if you have any kind of doubt that you have syphilis. If at all there are any symptoms they are in the forms of sores on the genital parts. Therefore it is necessary for you to have a full check up of your genitals and other body parts which might catch the eye of the doctor. This disease has to be treated as soon as possible because if any kind of complacency is done syphilis turns into secondary type of syphilis which is can cause rashes to appear on palms. The genital warts are a disease that is very harmful for the human body and usually happens when unprotected sex is done. The virus that is solely responsible for this is the human papilloma virus (HPV). The genital warts cause mucus membranes to occur on the genitals of both men and women.
