A 57-year-old female patient (PIN: 12668) presented with her complaints of hyperpigmented patches on the skin which were turning pinkish black, particularly on the face, left arm, right arm, legs, neck, and chest. She started homeopathic treatment from Life Force Homeopathy for the same. Also, she had oral lichen planus. She was suffering from bleeding gums and redness of gums, and her gums sensitivity was severe at the time when she started with the treatment. As far as her discomfort due to her skin complaints is concerned, she used to suffer from itching only when exposed to the heat of the sun.
After studying her case in detail, homeopathic medicines were prescribed to her to treat her complaints.
After taking homeopathic treatment for 6 months, she got 40% relief in the symptoms of both skin and oral lichen planus. Gum bleeding and sensitivity of the gums had reduced significantly. She was able to have slightly spicy food too, as the burning in the mouth had reduced significantly.
After 4 months of further treatment, she got 70% relief in her discomforting symptoms of lichen planus.
After following homeopathic treatment for about 2 years, she experienced a lot of relief. About 90%-95% of her complaints got relieved without any occurrence of relapse. The patient was feeling very happy and confident.
This case highlights that homeopathy is highly effective in treating lichen planus incredibly and safely without any side-effects.
