It is a chronic bacterial disease of the skin and nerves in the hands and feet. And in some cases the lining of the nose. It is not clear how the germ is spread, but household and prolonged closed contact tends to increase contagion. The germs get in the air through the nasal discharge of untreated lepromatous patients. Patients with leprosy should be treated by a skin specialist who has experience with the disease. Treatment is with multiple drugs for six months to two years.
