What Is The Cure For Leprosy?
Good night. N My name is ramli. This is how I checked at the health center there was a red swelling on my elbow in a circle and the flesh was thick and in the middle there was also numbness in my left leg and I also felt aching pain. Then my blood sample was taken from my ear and the result was negative. then the doctor gave me the red colored tablet. after 2 weeks of consumption there was no change, even more swelling appeared in my body. what is the solution?
Patches on the skin can result from many possible causes, including skin infections caused by fungi, bacterial infections, viral infections, allergic reactions and other causes such as autoimmune diseases. It is not uncommon for each rash to have similar symptoms and features, so it is necessary to carry out further examinations to determine the cause.
Leprosy itself is a skin infection caused by a bacterial infection of Mycobaterium leprae which causes skin symptoms such as numbness in the rash, a pale and thickened rash on the skin, sores appear but is not painful, disorders of the nerves around the lesion, can cause baldness in the area of the lesion, disorders of the muscles and others. Leprosy itself can have many types according to the number of lesions or the severity because complications from leprosy that are not treated alone if treated late can be fatal, such as nerve damage, disability, muscle weakness and others.
For this reason, if the treatment has been carried out before but there has been no improvement, go back to the doctor or dermatologist and genitalia doctor so that a physical examination and supporting examinations such as a skin scraping test will be carried out to confirm the cause. Leprosy treatment itself will take a long time because a combination of antibiotics will be given for up to 2 years depending on the type and severity of the infection.
