The Possibility Of Leprosy Can Be Completely Cured?
Hello, can MDT MD be completely cured, and where are you looking for a cure, thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Earlier we wanted to clarify that a popular abbreviation for MD disease is muscular dystrophy. Since you mentioned in the title that this disease is about the skin, we suspect that you mean leprosy or leprosy, type MB or multibacillar. If this is not what you meant, we apologize for the misunderstanding and please make a new question stating clearly the name of the disease or at least the symptoms and history of the disease involved.
Leprosy is a disease that attacks the skin, nerves, mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and eyes. This disease can cause injury, nerve damage, muscle weakness and numbness or numbness in several parts of the body. This condition is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae and is thought to be transmitted through nasal fluids that spread in the air when a person coughs or sneezes and is then inhaled by another person.
Symptoms that arise in people with leprosy are numbness, both to the sensation of temperature, touch, pressure or pain, pale or thickened lesions appear on the skin, there is a wound but no pain, loss of eyebrows and eyelashes, enlarged nerves in the elbows and knees, eyes become dry and blinking infrequently, damage to the nose, loss of fingers and muscle weakness to paralysis.
Factors that increase a person's risk of contracting leprosy are physical contact with bacteria that spread bacteria such as armadillos and chimpanzees, live in leprosy endemic areas, live in the same house or have frequent contact with lepers, and have immune system disorders.
Regarding your question, this disease can be completely cured. In that sense, the bacteria that infect it can completely disappear from the body. However, when there are complications such as blindness, kidney failure, damage to the inside of the nose, this condition may be permanent. Treatment is in the form of combined antibiotic therapy (MDT / multi drug therapy) for 6 months to 2 years. Surgery can also be performed in some cases to normalize the function of damaged nerves, improve the body shape of the sufferer and restore the function of other limbs. Among the specialists who have medicine and can treat this condition are dermatologists.
So once again if you are still in doubt about your condition, whatever it is, check with a general practitioner first. Your general practitioner will do a gradual examination through a history, physical examination and any necessary support, and if you think that your disease is complicated or won't get better after several meetings, you will be referred to the appropriate specialist. So, hopefully it answers your question.
