of the most common venereal diseases are:
people do not develop symptoms after they first get infected with
HIV. Others have a flu-like illness within several days to weeks after
exposure to the virus.

the neck. These symptoms usually disappear within a few weeks. After
that, the person feels normal and has no symptoms. This asymptomatic
phase often lasts for years.

any kind of viruses.
are divided into three stages.
to 12 weeks after the time of infection:
more red lesions will develop on the penis, labia (lips of the vagina),
and anus and sometimes on the mouth and lips. These lesions disappear
after a week.
to six months after the time of infection:
rash appears on the chest, back, arms, legs, hands and soles of the
feeling of discomfort
If the illness is not treated by the second stage, it will disappear
for a while. However, the disease can lie dormant in the body and
return up to 20 years later.
At this more advanced stage the symptoms will be:
The first symptom of primary syphilis is an ulcer called a chancre.
The chancre can appear within 10 days to three months after exposure,
but it generally appears within two to six weeks.
Because the chancre may be painless and may occur inside the body,
it may go unnoticed. It usually is found on the part of the body exposed
to the partner's ulcer, such as the penis, the vulva, or the vagina.
A chancre also can develop on the cervix, tongue, lips, or other parts
of the body. The chancre disappears within a few weeks whether or
not a person is treated. If not treated during the primary stage,
about one-third of people will progress to chronic stages.
