Hi. I was a leper last 2012 and done with my MDT for more than a year. I suffered from reaction for more than a year too that forced me to take steroid. After then I was diagnosed as disease-free. Because I got debts due to my previous medications and hospitalizations, I go abroad. I am now in middle east country and just this week I feel numbness again in some parts of my body and got lesion in my left cheek. Is there a possibility that I will have the same disease again?

My left hand is a numbness but maybe my hand will be right
24 Mar 2020
Dear Shailendra, Please examine yourself
When do you feel numbness, after sleep, while holding anything, lying on the left side, any other situation when you feel the numbness?
Do you exercise or walk?
Sometimes numbness is from the inactivity of muscles. Follow a exercise routine. Follow exercises or Yoga asanas to improve your blood circulation. Read the link on Numbness in Herbpathy. Opt the Materia Medica that you can follow. https://herbpathy.com/Herbal-Treatment-for-Numbness-Cid4562 ... Write back for further assistance.

Dear Abdul
Add 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt in lukewarm water. Soak your hands for half an hour.
Also, try Olive oil. Heat some oil. Massage the affected area with lukewarm oil. Take a warm water bath after an hour. Also, develop the habit of regular exercise and light workout, so as to stretch and warm up the muscles.
