Doctor

A:   Hi.
Welcome to ATD. Thank you for writing to us.

VDRL is the test for syphilis. Syphilis is generally treated with Penicillin. This will the correct therapy, but there are 2 concerns. One is a false positive test and the second is if you are allergic to Penicillin. Being allergic to Penicillin you cannot take it.

Also, VDRL can be positive in other conditions like:
Viral infections
Drugs
Lupus
Rheumatic fever

Thus, talk to a Doctor and never Self Medicate.

Hope this helps you. All the best.
