The first stage of a syphilis infection, known as the primary stage, brings a painless chancre, or a sore, that develops on the genitals. If left untreated, syphilis progresses to the second stage and a skin rash develops, which eventually disappears with or without treatment. After that, the infection typically becomes symptomless for a period of time, up to 20 years, before entering the third stage, known as the tertiary stage, roughly 3 to 15 years after the initial infection. At this point, it is a disabling and life-threatening illness.
