Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease that is caused due to attack of Treponema Pallidum bacterium in the body. As a result, the concerned person suffers from infection which is transferred to the other person during sexual intercourse. People who have low body immunity or suffer from malfunctioning of the immune system fall easy prey to this health issue. Apart from sexual activity, this disease may also be spread through bodily fluids that are secreted by the sores appearing on the body due to syphilis. Application of aloe Vera gel or tea tree oil on the sores helps in soothing down the inflammation as well as rashes on the skin.
