I’ve had sporotrichosis for almost a year now due to my profession as an environmentalist and herbalist. Luckily, I have found a good SSKI (potassium iodide) remedy from a chemistry student off Etsy, with great reviews from others who have had success using his product. So far I am noticing relief, because I feel like I am on death’s doorstep (sorry for the poor grammar, I swear my brain does not work anymore due to this fungus).

A rose thorn pricked near my elbow. I had subsequent lymphatic drainage from the site of prick to fingertips (duration one month). Drainage has stopped but arm is swollen from fingertips to shoulder. Treatment revealed no blood clot. Dicloxacillin was given for possible sporotrichosis infection. Doctor said I may have injured a blood vessel and that the swelling may last for nine months. I am exercising my arm every day and elevating it whenever possible.

Sporotrichosis almost killed me. It got into my lungs. I am a floral designer. Yep! I breathed in the spores. I spent 8 days in hospital and I could not breathe well for the week of Mother’s Day 2012. I was not diagnosed but I still have practicing physicians (some) who think I may have it. It is getting ugly.

I got sporotrichosis on my left elbow. Treatment with a range of antibiotics did no good, but tea tree oil worked rapidly to kill it off.
