Okay. I'll take a stab at it. Lepromatous Leprosy is my vote. Matter of fact, I'm pretty sure of it. Yeah. That's my final answer!

I vote 2. That's leprosy if I've ever seen it (and I haven't)!

Neutrophytosis? Look at the left eye. I believe leprosy includes some skin discoloration.

Leprosy (#2) is my guess. Looks like photos I've seen in old medical textbooks.
