Doxycycline has shown good results. Do talk to your treating doctor about it.

Dear Dr. Bharath,

Thanks for your reply. I have read/heared about that doxycyline but i don't either it works or not n' what are the side effects of this medicine and which type of specialized doctor will help us. My wife is under treatment by a general doctor coz i don't know about by which part  of doctors help me. 

Waiting for your reply.

I am a surgeon and have one of the largest dseries of surgeries for leg elephantiasis. Inspite fo the fact that the disease is rampant there are very few surgeons who can give proper surgical tratment for the same. Those few are not known to people who need them most. My phone no is 9823042247 . Contact me for further details.
