In brief: Smallpox
Currently a disease not in existence in humans, but preserved in at least 2 labs.
It produces fever, malaise and skin lesions which are like blisters, come out all in one crop, may be slightly umbilicated (have a little dent in center). They break down, may bleed, leave ulcers and if you survive, deep pitting scars.
