i already received one shot of penicillin one week ago and after that i get some bloodtest and it shows the titer 1:4, is that safe or not? Should i take another shot for this?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't provide any clinical context for why this test was obtained, or what the titer was prior to receiving treatment. Syphilis test can remain positive for months to years after successful treatment.
