A pediatric emergency department doctor was treating a spider bite on my daughter and mentioned he also worked in wound clinic. I took a chance and showed him my wounds. It t took him less than a minute before he diagnosed sporotrichosis. He said it was in my bone under my scalp as well as various cutaneous sites.
