Hi nayomie09,

I think you really need to do some own studies on syphilis. Or, better, see a doctor if you have reason to believe if you have been exposed to syphilis or STDs.

A brief answer to your question; VDRL is a test for Syphilis. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease. If you have a positive VDRL Test, that means you might have Syphilis infection. Of course confirmatory test is needed to confirm if you really have Syphilis. If you have, you will need antibiotics treatment.

Please visit website: http://www.ashastd.org/ for more information on STDs.

Again, if you believe you have been exposed to STDs, please see a doctor.

Thanks.
