MILKERS NODULES AND COWPOX

Milker’s nodules (pseudocowpox) is a cutaneous parapoxvirus disease of cattle, distinct from cowpox, that can cause local skin infections similar to orf in exposed humans. Healing of the skin lesions may take 4 to 8 weeks. There is no cross-immunity to cowpox. Cowpox is now very rare in the United States. It produces a vesicular eruption on the udders of cows and similar, usually localized, vesicular skin lesions in humans who are accidentally exposed.
