  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Blains 
  occurs  only  in  connection  with  the  sixth  plague  of  Egypt  (Ex. 
  9:9,  10).  In  Deut.  28:27,  35,  it  is  called  "the  botch  of  Egypt." 
  It  seems  to  have  been  the  fearful  disease  of  black  leprosy,  a 
  kind  of  elephantiasis,  producing  burning  ulcers.
