Plenty of Syph: Fun public health campaign

The Health Department in Alberta, Canada, has a very cute syphilis awareness website: Plenty of Syph, like Plenty of Fish, but where all the singles have syphilis. Some of the pictures show a really nice oral primary syphilis chancre, a few have a secondary stage rash on a chest, and a few even have tertiary syphilis with gummas around the mouth. Very cute. (The mouth is unsurprisingly a relatively rare location for a syphilis sore, maybe just 10% of the time for primary syphilis. And not sure how common it is to get to tertiary syphilis.)
