Syphilis cases up 44 percent in California county | Fox News

Health officials are attempting to combat a record number of syphilis cases in San Joaquin County after the area saw a 44 percent increase from 2016 to 2017, making it the second highest in the state.

"We're just trying to inform the public as much as possible that this is a public health concern in the county," Dr. Kismet Baldwin, a health officer with the county's health services, told Fox 40.

"If you're not treated you move onto the secondary stage and in the secondary stage you could have multiple sores like that but it could be in the mouth."
