Leprosy is an infectious disease that causes skin sores and nerve damage that leads to numbness and muscle weakness. Despite how it's thought of in popular culture, Leprosy is not very contagious, and it's usually treatable with antibiotic medications. If you have leprosy and take your medications as instructed, you are not contagious.
