How To Deal With Leprosy That Recurs After 6 Years?
I am a person with leprosy, and 6 years ago I had undergone treatment for 12 months and the results were declared cured, even the round spots like tinea versicolor on my cheeks have also disappeared, but why is it now appearing again?
Leprosy is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae. This condition is quite dangerous because it can lead to permanent smallpox if not treated immediately and properly.
With the history you experience, it could be that what you are experiencing is a recurrence, re-infection, reaction or maybe other skin diseases such as fungal, bacterial and other infections.
It is necessary to do a direct examination to distinguish what you are experiencing. Due to different conditions, different treatments must be given. So keep regular checks with your doctor, because it is your doctor who better understands the condition you are experiencing. This control is also needed to evaluate your condition and the results of the treatment given. It may be that later on you need additional medication, an increase in your dose, or maybe a drug change for what you are experiencing.
I hope this helps.
