A 37-years-old female, Mrs. M.J. (PIN 33563), visited Life Force’s Santacruz branch on 12th September 2017 for Lichen Planus.
The patient was worried, stressed, anxious, and full of questions. She was suffering from Lichen Planus from the last 8 months to a year, with Lichen Planus spreading all over her body. There was intense itching present and scaling with hyperpigmented marks were being left behind.
The probable cause for Lichen Planus was that, in the past, the patient had consumed some conventional tablets for her problem of allergic rhinitis, and, soon after that, she started developing Lichen Planus eruptions on her body.
The patient had taken steroid-based treatment for Lichen Planus for almost a month, and that had also led to weight gain.
Another trigger that gave rise to Lichen Planus was the constant stress the patient was experiencing. The patient had moved out of her husband’s house due to the tiffs between them. Also, she had the responsibility of her son.
After studying her case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed her Lichen Planus research-based molecules for 6 weeks.
On her first follow-up on 28th Oct 2017, there was a 25% improvement in her condition.
In her follow-up on 10th Dec 2017, new eruptions had developed on her arms, but the eruptions on her abdomen had reduced.
In her third follow-up, which was given on 14th April 2018 after a gap of 4 months, there was 90% improvement in her condition.
In her fourth follow-up on 9th June 2018, she had experienced a total recovery with only hyperpigmented marks left behind.
The patient is still under the care of Life Force on the maintaining doses.
This case illustrates how the rapid spread of the disease was arrested and a steady recovery was achieved with the help of homeopathic treatment.
