VDRL test results
Around 8 months ago I had sore kind of thing on my penis shaft which was used to get cover with the white sticky liquid even after cleaning the penis. I showed it to Doctor and dermatologist and he said it's simplex labialis and gave me the medicines course for around 2 months.I also did HIV and VDRL test at that time and results were negative for both the test. Now my penis looks normal. There is no sore or rash kind of thing. And recently I again went for HIV and VDRL test. HIV test results came negative. But VDRL test results says "Weakly Positive". So my question is should I go for another test like TPHA-ABS just to confirm. And also I am confused whether it was simplex labialis or syphilis ?

The sore which you had is more like the primary syphilitic sore rather than herpes simplex genitalis (not labials). You can do the TPHA-ABS test for confirmation or since you had the sore and VDRL is weakly positive you can straightaway take the treatment which is simple : A single injection of PENIDURE - LA 24.
