Symptoms of Leprosy

The major signs and symptoms of leprosy are skin lesions and macules. The lesions may be devoid of the usual body pigmentation and may be anesthetic, attributed to nerve damage. If left untreated, the symptoms may become severe, leading to permanent damage to the skin and the nerves, and also disrupting the functionality of limbs and eyes. Loss of hair from eyelashes and eyebrows is also seen. The skin may also appear dry, and some patients experience pain in both hands and feet.
