Grandfather of an 8-year-old kid named Mast. R.D. (PIN:31074) visited our Life Force clinic on 24th January 2017 on behalf of the patient. The child was residing in Malaysia. The parents of the child had noticed hypopigmented spots on his eyes, corner of the lip, neck, knees, and lower back from the past 8 months. Initially, the spot was only near the corner of the lip and had been subsided after taking deworming medicine. As spots started to appear on different parts of the body, they visited a dermatologist who confirmed it as Vitiligo. His Vitiligo spots were bilateral symmetrical and involved mucocutaneous junctions which are around eyes and lips. For a few months, he used some allopathic ointments which didn't make any change in spots, and the spots were increasing gradually.
In his family, his father was on antihypertensive medicines, and his grandmother and grandfather had diabetes.
The case was analyzed by Dr. Rajesh Shah in detail. After considering all the details, Dr. Shah prescribed his research-based medicines along with the constitutional medicines to the patient.
On 27th February 2017, the patient's grandfather called and informed that his recovery from the spots was getting better. The color of the spots had turned dull. In a few spots, there was re-pigmentation observed. There were no new spots, and there was no spread in the existing spots.
The child's parents kept on coordinating with our online doctors time to time with the progress of their child's vitiligo spots.
On 27th March 2017, parents personally visited our clinic to meet Dr. Rajesh Shah as they were happy to see the improvement in their kid’s condition. The child’s recovery from the spots was better by 50%. They were quite confident about the treatment their child was receiving and were hopeful of the further recovery.
On 4th June 2017, grandparents of the child informed that there was further improvement in the recovery from vitiligo spots. The spot on the nape of the neck of the child was re-pigmented completely. The spots near the lip, knees, lower back, and under eyes were showing further improvement.
When the patient visited the clinic on 28th January 2019, there was 80%-90% improvement in his recovery from the spots. The spots on difficult areas which are under eyes and knees too showed a good improvement. There were no new spots and no spread in the existing spots.
Mast. R.D. is continuing with the treatment from Life Force for complete recovery. His parents and grandparents are no more worried about his Vitiligo.
This case illustrates that timely intervention with Homeopathic medicines helps treat even a difficult bilateral variant of vitiligo involving mucocutaneous junctions incredibly with long-term homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is highly effective in treating vitiligo in children remarkably and safely without any side-effects.
