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.
