Mr. K. S. (Patient Identification Number - 8297) visited Life Force center on 2nd March 2006 for his recent complaint of rapidly spreading Lichen Planus. It had started around 3 months ago. There were eruptions with itching on arms, legs, abdomen, chest, back, and genitals. For last few weeks the nails too had started to get affected. He was applying a steroid-based ointment which did not give any relief.
He was a nonvegetarian by choice. He had a craving for chicken and disliking for spicy food. His thirst was reduced. He would perspire profusely. He was sensitive to cold weather.
He was staying in a hostel for his management studies. His father had a grocery store. His mother was a homemaker. He had a younger brother who was studying.
He was a short-tempered and impatient personality. He was very fastidious regarding certain things and would become angry if objects were not kept according to his way. He had tremendous anxiety for his future, family and financial responsibility. Along with the studies, he worked part-time in an event management company. In anger, he would either feel like hitting the other person, (but would never do it), or would start weeping. He was sympathetic and caring for friends and family.
He had a history of suffering from Asthma until 12 years of age.
His paternal grandparents were suffering from diabetes. His maternal grandmother was suffering from asthma. His younger brother had been operated for appendicitis.
