A 37-year-old female from Jammu and Kashmir, Mrs. M.B. (PIN: 23737) started with homeopathic treatment online from Life Force in the month of October 2014 for her complaint of Lichen Planus.
She was suffering from this condition for the past year. The spots of lichen planus were present mainly on her legs, hands, and back. She was experiencing a lot of itching on the skin. And, the itching was very intense all the time. She was experiencing itching more on her legs than on the other parts of the body. Itching used to bother her mainly at night. She was also experiencing burning on her skin, mainly after scratching. She was already on Homeopathic medicines for the past one year, but there was no difference in the terms of the relief in her skin condition.
She also had an underactive thyroid complaint for many years. She was taking thyroid supplements for the same.
She had an average appetite. She had specific cravings for sweets and spicy food. Her thirst for water was average. Her sleep was normal.
She was staying with her husband. She was working as a beautician. She had stress because of the disease, as she was in the profession related to maintaining the beauty and the hyperpigmentation on the skin was not looking good. Besides this, no other stress factor was bothering the patient.
She never had any other major illnesses in the past. Her father and mother suffered from thyroid disorders and diabetes mellitus.
