Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would make the following du’a:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ البَرَصِ وَالْجُنُونِ وَالْجُذَامِ وَمِنْ سَيِّئِ الْأَسْقَامِ

Allhumma inni a’udhu bika minal barasi wal jununi wal judhami wa min sayyi-il asqam

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
