Has anyone been diagnosed with Sporotrichosis also called Rose Gardener's Disease? My doctor said I probably picked it up when pruning my roses. How did you know you had it? How did you treat it? Thanks.

I haven't had it but I understand that antifungals are used to treat it. Wikipedia has a symptoms and treatment article. Sounds very curable.

Because we handle compost and also prune hundreds of roses for a fund raiser every year our dermatologist is concerned about MRSA. We double glove and use Mupirocin ointment when we get a thorn puncture or garden related abrasion.
