A 29-years-old patient (PIN 28783) visited Chembur branch clinic of Life Force with the complaint of Lichen Planus, which he was suffering from one year. His symptoms were progressive from the last 6 months, as he had taken the conventional line of treatment and was experiencing withdrawal effects of the steroids. Hypertrophied lesions were present on his body along with itching. His itching discomfort used to get aggravated in the early morning and at night. On examination, it was observed that there were no oral lesions present. The patches were present on his forehead, both the feet, both the legs, waist and lower back. The onset of lichen planus had begun after the patient took the dental treatment. A week prior to visiting the clinic, he had stopped all his medicines and was currently not taking any medicines. Along with this, he was suffering from the complaints of chronic constipation, where he passed hard stools occasionally and had unsatisfactory bowel movements.
As there was a history of the use of steroidal medicines, the patient had to take treatment for 2 years.
After studying his case in detail, Dr. Rajesh Shah had prescribed his research-based molecules to the patient.
After following our homeopathic treatment, the patient got about 85% relief from his complaints and is currently continuing the treatment at Life Force with the hope of achieving full recovery.
This case highlights that homeopathy is quite effective in providing you a great relief from the discomfort resulting due to lichen planus successfully and safely without any side-effects.
