Hello Sumi Yati, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Leprosy or also known as leprosy is a disease caused by infection with the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae. This disease is a disease that requires a very long treatment and often causes serious complications to health that can cause disability in the body.
A person with multibacillary leprosy (MB) is said to experience a relapse or recurrence if new skin lesions appear consistent with leprosy or new nerve damage and on examination of the lesions a bacterial index (BI) is increased by 2 logs compared to examinations at the same site upon completion of treatment. therapy. In cases of paucibacillary leprosy (PB), the diagnosis of recurrence is indeed more difficult and difficult to distinguish from the occurrence of a leprosy reaction.
In a case like yours, it's best to get checked first to determine whether you have a recurrence of leprosy or a leprosy reaction, because the treatment for the two is very different. You have to undergo treatment with antibiotics again if a relapse occurs, but if what you experience is a leprosy reaction, then the treatment that can be given is corticosteroids. You will need a bacteriological examination if new lesions appear on your skin. Therefore, it's a good idea to check yourself back to the doctor. If indeed your puskesmas refuses to provide treatment, you can ask to be referred to a higher level health center (hospital) for the examination and treatment you need.
The following is an article you can read about leprosy and a discussion you can read about leprosy reactions
