But diagnosing syphilis can be tricky, says Park, who treats patients with STDs at the San Francisco City Clinic. She often finds herself crouched low in the exam room, "lifting up their scrotum and lifting up their penis," craning her head to get a look from all angles.

I'd like to see the day that lesson is covered in medical school.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases, as a whole, are just Infectious Disease where the means of transmission is so weak that it requires the most intimate contact to spread from person to person.  We should be able to eradicate them easily.

In light of the "I refuse to wear a mask, or stop yelling at grocery clerks" phenomenon we've seen, there will always be STDs.

But what about the vessel with the pestle? How am I to find the brew that is true?

Waiting for our resident plague 🐀 s to chime is with "But I have an immune system!" "It's a plot by Big Pharma to get us hooked on antibiotics, and what about the side effects. Those drugs haven't been tested enough." "Syphilis is over diagnose so doctors can charge more for treating the Surrender Monkey France Disease."

Come on, science deniers.

I don't think there's anything "easy" about making people stop having sex. It's an insanely strong biological insistence.

There are other things we could do, like actually teach comprehensive sex ed and make a concerted effort to test and treat as many people as possible as often as we can. Those take funding and a universal healthcare system.

I thought this was weird. All of my syphilis tests have been blood-based. I suppose visual diagnosis is easier.
