A 23-year-old male resident of Mumbai, Mr. G.L. (PIN 11799) visited Life Force Homeopathy on 16th Feb 2009 Chembur branch for his complaints of Lichen Planus.
The patient was suffering from lichen planus from 8 months before at the time of his visit to our clinic. He had developed scattered eruptions all over his body. Prior to visiting Life Force, the patient had consumed steroids. Also, he had followed a local application of the same. He was experiencing intense itching. At the time of his first visit to our clinic, his disease was spreading.
The patient was lean. He liked salty food. He was shy and reserved by nature, but he was short-tempered too.
The patient's diseased photos were taken for comparison (in accordance with his future recovery). The patient was also informed that new eruptions are anticipated because of past steroid use.
On the first follow-up on 16th March 2009, the patient reported no improvement (which was anticipated) in his condition.
On the second follow-up on 18th May 2009, the patient mentioned the occurrence of new eruptions, however, he had experienced relief in some parts of the eruption. Also, his intensity of itching had reduced significantly.
On the third follow-up on 17th July 2009, his condition was as it is.
On the fourth follow-up on 2nd Sep 2009, there was a 75% improvement in his recovery from lichen planus.
The patient had no eruption after the last follow-up and was off all the medicines.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating lichen planus remarkably and safely without any side-effects. The patients need to give the body its own time to heal and respond to the treatment to experience a noteworthy recovery.
