The parents of 8-year-old Miss. S.D. (PIN: 24904) started noticing small red purplish raised bumps on her hands, and, gradually, the lesions started to spread to all her over body. The biopsy of the lesions confirmed it as Lichen Planus. She was suffering from an extensive lichen planus with lesions present almost all over her body with itching and burning in lesions. The itching and burning sensation were worse after bathing and at night. She was treated with steroids initially and then she was receiving Homeopathic medicines from a local Homeopath from the USA, before starting treatment with Dr. Shah.
In the past, she was not suffered from any major illness. Her grandparents suffered from Diabetes.
The patient’s appetite was good. She had no specific cravings or aversion with regards to the food. She was experiencing average perspiration. Her bowel and bladder habits were normal.
Her parents were from India, however, she was born and brought up in the USA.
Dr. Shah prescribed her Kalo Iod-30 along with his research-based molecules.
A drastic change in her condition was observed in the first follow-up on 27th October 2017. She was better by more than 50% than earlier with the medicines. Her itching had reduced. The lesions were not spreading anymore. There were no new breakouts.
On 22nd March 2018, the patient reported being almost 70%-80% better than earlier with the medicines. All her lesions had dried. She was experiencing itching no more. Only scars of the lesions were left. Dr. Shah revised the prescription considering the hyperpigmented marks/scars, which were left.
On 14th July 2018, there was a mild recurrence of the lesions, but no probable cause was found on inquiry. The patient’s old scar marks were fading. Dr. Shah made the necessary changes in the prescription.
Thereafter, she continued improving and the marks were fading further. No new lesions appeared. The recovery from the marks was almost 90% improved.
The patient’s parents thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for helping their child and improving her health
The above case illustrates how homeopathy, in a gentle way, helped the child recover from her extensive Lichen planus safely without any side-effects, as opposed to steroids.
