Is There a Cure?

There is not a cure, but treatment can help lessen symptoms and damage to someone’s internal organs and skin as well as provide pain relief, suppression of your immune system and prevention from it from attacking your body and antibiotic ointment to prevent infections. Amputation and organ transplants are also treatment options.
