What is Blastomycosis?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the Centers for Disease Control, Blastomycosis is an infection which is caused by a fungus known as Blastomyces. The fungus lives in the environment and is predominantly found in moist soil and in decomposing matter such as wood and leaves. Blastomyces mainly lives in areas of the United States and Canada surrounding the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys and the Great Lakes. People can get blastomycosis after breathing in the microscopic fungal spores from the air. Although most people who breathe in the spores don’t get sick, some of those who do may have flu-like symptoms, and the infection can sometimes become serious if it is not treated.
