The primary stage starts with a painless anal, genital, oral ulcer, etc. secondary stage develops after a week or a few months if the primary stage is left untreated. Symptoms of the secondary stage are skin rashes in the palm, soles, extremities, etc. latent phase is developed after 1 year or less. It doesn’t show any sign and symptoms of infection.
