RPR Positive

Nov 26, 2017

Hi i tested positive to Syphillis back in May and test postive to T. Palladium and an RPR of 1:32 i got an injection of penecillin got tested again a couple of months back and tested positive again but the rpr was 1:4. I went to another doctor about 2 weeks ago after these test he gave me another shot of penicillin just got tested waited two weeks and just got tested again and its still 1:4 and positive. does this mean i need to get a series of shots?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No, no further treatment is required. The RPR can remain positive for months to years after successful treatment.

my hbv viral load is 3.8 iu/ml
Is 4.96E+6 IU/mL <615 IU/L?
