I talked to some guy, who claimed to have it from a good source, that ANY
skin condition was lumped under "leprosy."

I realize that Jesus healing the man with dandruff doesn't have the kick of
healing a man with leprosy, but I'm pretty sure that some people at
Johnson's and Johnsons would love to talk to him.  They have a treatment
(shampoo), but not a cure.

The question is, would they try to silence him, to preserve their dandruff
shampoo sales, or exploit him for a new product?

Anyway, can anyone verify this, at all?  I mean, I realize that ancient and
medieval diagnoses are inexact, but I can't imagine the rather extreme
conditions of the one being mistaken for much else, all that often.  Or a
mild skin rash being thought to be leprosy.
Granted, some of the stuff is secondary to the disease, and not primary
symptoms, but, I hope you know what I mean.
