Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE LETM8HIDGE HERALD Monday, 2, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D Dear Dr. Lamb We are hearing so much about syphilis today, I wish you would give me a few pointers Is old age syphilis and the syphilis young people have the same disease7 I have heard the chancre is the first sign and would that come on the buttocks, and would it corne in the same place three or four times a year? Does it itch' I have heard something about a rash, is that so' Dear Reader Syphilis is a contagious disease, and the same germ causes it in all age groups Even if you are 100 and are exposed to the germ and do not have immftmty you may develop the disease People often think of syphilis as a disease of young people, but it is important in today's free, uninhibited society to remember that age is no protection Older people are far more active sexually than used to be appreciated With the lessening of pre- judices against solder people, there have been some further changes in sexual behavior which increases the chances of venereal disease in this age group The chancre is the same in all ages It is a small sore and commonly appears on the sex- ual organs, not the buttocks It occurs only once in the first few weeks of the illness and does not occur again It is painless and does not itch If you have a rash and it itches, it is not syphilis The rash that occurs later in untreated syphilis doesn't itch Some people who have had untreated syphilis develop an immunity and in effect the disease is cured by the body's own defense mechanism These people are not likely to get syphilis again any more than'you are aPl to Set chicken pox again, if you have already had it They won't transmit the disease, either Dear Dr. Lamb I have two daughters, aged 5 and 1 My older daughter has had the smallpox vaccination My doctor recently told me the shot was not necessary any longer This worries me Mall children stop receiving it, isn't an outbreak of smallpox possible, as with the case of measles9 Dear Reader The World Health Organization thinks that smallpox is on its way to being an extinct disease the world's first example of com- plete disappearance of a dis- ease from the globe Smallpox is dependent upon humans to survive When the number of cases of human smallpox becomes so small the organisms can't produce enough new organisms to avoid becoming extinct It is something like the wildlife problem If the population gets too small for a species, they become extinct Even the recent outbreak of smallpox in Asia does not dampen the World Health Organization hopes So, very soon now there should never be another outbreak of even one case of smallpox anywhere on the earth The risk is already so small that the risk of vaccination com- plications is greater than that of getting the disease itself You can stop worrying about that problem Write to Dr Lamb in care of this newspaper, P.O.
