Rpr 1:1

Aug 4, 2018

Hi I was treating for syphilis a little bit more that a year ago, 3 shots of penicillin I did the test again a couple days and I have a RPR titer 1:1 My question is do I need medicine again?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate what the RPR titer was prior to starting treatment. However, the RPR can remain positive for months to years after successful treatment.

Recently diagnosed, starting therapy
