We all know the image of Jean-Paul Marat lying in the bathtub after stab inflicted on from Charlotte Corday just as there has passed the Jacques-Louis David in a painting that became the most famous of French Revolution, all also we know that the ruthless popular leader was suffering from a mysterious illness that forced him to spend most of his days soaking, but what disease it?
The most accepted version wants suffering from eczema erpetico, theme I have already discussed in a special post: https://www.pilloledistoria.it/2483/storia-moderna/leczema-marat.
However, there are also other theories about it, that although less plausible, worth reporting.
Since the sources cite a disease that manifested with severe migraines, fever and unbearably itchy skin, someone has suggested moving that Marat suffered the Morbo in Hodgkin, a serious cancer of the lymph glands, while according to someone else this would be biliary cirrhosis.
