I have never heard before of this disease but after seeing what it does (if you Google it, be prepared to see horrible images so think twice before you do because it's really nasty stuff and just yesterday some guy lost all his limbs due to it).

After some research on the web, it is not clear the cause, some people blame spiders, other possums, but nothing is sure so my question for you is: did you see or do you know of anyone having the diseases outside of Victoria?

Ah, I see you've met my ex.

I just Google Images it. Yuck. I think I'm going to skip dinner.

Yuck! I saw images from Google too. It says the cause is from aquatic bugs lurking on water bodies like swamps and rivers. This is scary because there is no effective vaccine to halt the spread of ulcer. Antibiotics are only effective if treated early for eight weeks.

Spray some Windex on it to make it go away.

Yeah, this disease is spread by aquatic bugs and particularly the spiders.
