blasto toronto
« on: July 01, 2013, 10:49:50 AM »
 i recently was diagnosed with blastomycosis. I had a lesion on the back of my ear and on my back. The Drs I saw assumed that it was basal cell carcinoma, but the lab found blasto.

I'm from Toronto. the lesions began in january 2013- I thought they were infected mosquito bites- bc i had been to thailand in late december and had been eaten alive- the bites were itchy for about three weeks.

I visited the jungle while in thailand.

I have a cottage that i visited in October 2012 on lake huron.

and earlier in the summer I had been camping on Georgian Bay.

I also keep vivaria with lizards and plants.

in October I started coughing up blood. I was checked for cancer and a dr suggested that I might have acid reflux- and the blood was the acid eating at my esophogus.

Otherwise I havent had any of the nasty symptoms of Blasto. the lesions stopped bleeding and scabbing prior to being diagnosed and medicated. ive had none of the other things- fever, flu, breathing problems.

Im aiwaiting sputum and chest x ray results, but i feel fine.
