Blastomycosis (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

People should seek medical care if they are or have been at risk for coming in contact with the fungi and are immunosuppressed from any cause. Others should seek care if they have the same exposure risk as above and develop flu-like symptoms, especially during the periods of low flu activity (usually late spring through early fall) or they develop prolonged symptoms (usually greater than two weeks) that may increase in severity and/or develop skin nodules.
