Where does syphilis rash appear?

The rash may appear when the primary sore is healing, or after a few weeks. The rash may look like red, rough, or reddish brown patches on your palms and/or feet. It is usually not noticeable and will not cause itching.
What are the first signs of syphilis, exactly? A small sore called a "chancre" (SHANG-kur) is the first sign of syphilis. The sore is the area where the bacteria infected your body.

The rash is composed of small, reddish-brown or reddish brown bumps. Although the bumps are usually rough to the touch they can sometimes feel smooth. A syphilis skin rash isn't itchy like other rashes. It can also be very faint. The rash can be difficult to spot and may not be noticed.
