"Can HIV test detect Syphilis?"
Mar 10, 2012

im just wondering if HIV test can detect Syphillis ?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

The HIV test only detects HIV. Likewise a Syphilis test only detects Syphilis. When it comes to HIV/STDs you must be tested specifically for each one, there's no workaround or backdoor to finding your status.

Hope this helps!

Erik
