39-years-old Mr. SKS (PIN 31012) running a fabrication workshop visited Life Force Chembur branch on 18th January 2017.
The patient was suffering from lichen planus for a year. It was affecting his entire body, including upper limbs, trunk, lower limbs, genitals, oral cavity, and the nails. Also, the disease was gradually progressing.
In the past, the patient had taken conventional treatment for 3-4 months which consisted of steroid-based tablets and lotions. From the last one month and while his visit to LF, he was also applying steroid-based lotion.
The patient was tall and a little overweight. He consumed a mixed diet. He had an average appetite. He had a craving for meat, chicken, fish, sweet, and spicy food. He disliked fruits and sour food items.
The patient had been through a lot of stress due to financial constraints.
After studying his case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed the patient his Lichen Planus research-based molecules for 6 weeks.
On his 1st follow-up on 10th March 2017, there was 5-10% improvement in his condition.
After a gap of a month, the patient visited our Mulund branch for his second follow-up on 20th May 2017. There was about 20%-25% of improvement in his condition.
The patient was irregular with his medicines and hence his third follow-up on 31st August 2017 showed no improvement.
The fourth follow-up of the patient in October 2017 also showed no improvement.
When the patient visited us on 6th December 2017 for his fifth follow-up, there was an improvement of about 60%-70% in his condition
The sixth follow-up of the patient on 23rd Jan 2018 showed 70%-80% improvement in his condition. His oral lesions were completely better than earlier.
The patient is still under our care and is doing much better.
This case highlights that homeopathy is quite effective in treating lichen planus successfully and safely without any side-effects. Dr. Shah's research-based molecules can even give relief from a stubborn disease like Lichen Planus effectively.
