Home Remedies for leprosy
Symptoms of leprosy
Any unnatural patch on the surface of the skin.
If void of sensibility to temperature, pain, or touch, it should be a warning of the possible onset of this disease. Other early symptoms include a headache, nosebleed, and fevers. Certain areas may become insensitive, because the disease follows along nerve trunks and especially affects areas on, or close to, the skin.
Causes of leprosy
Leprosy is a strange infectious disease, caused by a bacteria which, under a microscope, looks like tuberculosis. It is mildly contagious.
There may be 2-3 years, and sometimes much longer, after exposure before symptoms appear. Once it appears, it develops very slowly.
