Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you can't get antibiotics online

Dr. David :

you have to see a doctor at a clinic to get a prescription for antibiotics.

Dr. David :

why don't you want to go to a clinic?

JACUSTOMER-v8cp80eo- : Dont like them havent bin to a doctor since i was about 12 years old
Dr. David :

treatments often are a shot of penicillin or gentamycin

Dr. David :

so you can't give yourself a shot for this infection.

Dr. David :

you have to go to a clinic.

JACUSTOMER-v8cp80eo- : Im not goin to any clinic if i carnt get treatment so be it
Dr. David :

if you don't get treated, syphilis can spread to the nervous system and cause permanent damage.

Dr. David :

how do you know you have syphilis if you haven't see a doctor

Dr. David :

and haven't had blood testing?

Dr. David :

you could have something else

JACUSTOMER-v8cp80eo- : Ive had it nearly a year damage all ready done bye
JACUSTOMER-v8cp80eo- : The bird who give it me said she had tested positive about a week after id bin wiv her
Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

well, the cure rate for treatment for syphilis is very high with treatment.

Dr. David :

so you are giving up an easy treatment for your infection and risking neurological damage by not getting treatment.

JACUSTOMER-v8cp80eo- : Why carnt i just get a perscription sent too me and pay for it at the chemist
Dr. David :

because doctors can't do that.

Dr. David :

because what if your infection is something else.

Dr. David :

what if you are allergic to the treatment

Dr. David :

what if you have other infections going on.
