In brief: No such thing...

See your doctor! cutaneous form may not even need treatment, but mucocutaneous leishmaniasis in the United States is not common and is likely the result of someone traveling from an endemic zone.
Ensure the diagnosis is correct my sampling the lesions of this infection. In many cases, patients will be referred to an infectious disease specialist for treatment.
