Excerpt from Natural History, Vol. 6 of 10: With An English Translation; Libri XX-XXIII

Psora was a term for several diseases, including leprosy. Often our itch.

Leprae (the singular is late) seems to refer to scaly conditions of the skin accompanied by pruritus.

Scabies was not our scabies, which is limited to the pustules caused by the itch insect. Celsus (v. 28, 16) describes it as a hardening of the skin, which grows ruddy, and from it grow pustules with itching ulceration. Probably several kinds of eczema are included under this term.
