Sporotrichosis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?

Sporotrichosis may begin with a sore or central blister that is red, tender, and appears under the skin of the fingers. A few days to a few weeks after exposure, the disease may progress:

  • The nodule becomes pink and ulcerates. Several days to a few weeks after the initial nodule appears, a chain of dark red nodules develops. Red streaks may move up the arm from the sores located on the wrist or arm.
  • A productive cough may develop if the organism is inhaled or reaches the lungs.
  • Usually there are no other symptoms such as chills, fever, or headache.
