Patient : I was tested positive for chlamydia and gonorrhea two days ago. When I was at the doctors office, I was given a shot of Rocephine 1g and Lidocain 2% in the buttocks. I also took 2 pills of Zitromax (Azithromycin) for total of 1g. I just discovered a small single chancre sore on my penis. I am going to get tested today for syphilis. If I test positive for syphilis, will the antibiotics shot and pills I took for chlamydia and gonorrhea be sufficient to cure the syphilis or will I need to also get the penicillin shot as well? Thank you for your help!
