Hi All,

We are in the middle of processing the visa for an overseas helper. Her agency got the medical checkup and it turns out that she has syphilis infection

(VDRL test -ve, T.P.P.A test +ve).

Now I did some research and am aware that this is STD and risk via other methods is limited. However she is going to be cooking and feedking my baby. There might be a remote change the infection might transfer if she and the other person have open sores.
Syphilis can be treated with antiobiotics and she says she has finished the course. The agency is saying that the T.P.P.A test will however remain +ve even if she is free of infection right now (which is something i dont understand).

The agency has asked me I could replace this one and find another but that means that I will be without helper for a month. which is again a hassle.

Please give your inpus on what I shall do
