Face Swelling And Redness In Leprosy Patients?
Will my swollen nose and face be able to return to normal as before. And what if the swellings on the feet and hands can be deflated, including those with swollen red patches? Does stress also affect health and will exacerbate the disease? AC has an effect or not for people who have a disease like me, because I work in an air-conditioned room almost every day. Please explain.
Hello Sister Nunuy,

Complications that are quite worrying are a decrease in the ability to feel nerves, muscle and joint stiffness which then hampers daily activities.
