Check Back To See The Cure For Leprosy After Treatment?
Good afternoon. I want to ask, I’m 1 month after leprosy treatment is finished. Because according to the doctor who treated me, my treatment was only for 1 year. If it has finished treatment for 1 year I want to check whether or not healed. Do I have to consult with a doctor who treats me or directly to a dermatologist? Thank you in advance.
Hello Bro. Dey, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
We understand your curiosity about the best solution of leprosy therapy so far, we will try to explain it well.
Leprosy or disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae is a disease that attacks the skin while also attacking the peripheral nervous system, mucous membranes in the upper respiratory tract and the eyes.
The treatment given is with antibiotic therapy for at least 6 months to 2 years, but the duration of treatment is certainly determined based on the type of leprosy and clinical / symptoms that occur. If you want to ensure your recovery, you can go back to the doctor who has been treating you all this time, but if you want to know more in detail whether there are other effects of leprosy so far on the skin and touch function on the skin, then you can consult more fully with the experts namely dermatologist. Considering the doctor who has been treating you to know your treatment from the beginning and know the initial state of your leprosy, you can also ask his opinion about further consultation with a skin specialist whether it is needed or not.
Thus we can convey, hopefully the information we provide is useful for you. thanks.
