25 Most Painful Diseases You Wouldn’t Want to Have

#17 – Syphilis

Syphilis is one of the most dangerous sexually transmitted diseases aka STDs. The disease causes rashes around private parts and on the whole body, swollen lymph nodes, and sores around private areas.

This STD is a slow-progressive disease which means that it develops over time in stages. The last stage of Syphilis develops 10+ years after the infection and is called Tertiary Stage. That advanced stage of Syphilis can lead to damage of the internal organs and, ultimately, to death. The disease is easily treated with antibiotics if caught on time. A telltale sign that you may have Syphilis is weird sores on your private areas and around your mouth.
