She presented with the complaints of hair loss from the frontal hair margins, eyebrows, eye-lashes, and forearms since 1.5 years. She was experiencing more than 50-100 strands of hair loss per day. She had complete hair loss on her eyebrows in the past 6 months, but some hair had regrown on the eyebrows since 3 months after following a conventional treatment. There was no hair regrowth over her eye-lashes. She also had complaints of premature graying of hair. Her thyroid profile was within the normal limits. She was using minoxidil lotion on the scalp. She had also taken oral steroidal medications and other conventional medications for a long time in the past, but that didn’t help her obtain a significant improvement. She also had complaints of abdominal pain along with nausea during menses since 3 years. Her parents and the patient were greatly tensed as her disease had not been under control even after following the conventional treatment. Finally, they opted for homeopathic treatment under Dr. Shah.
She had an average appetite, and she was following a mixed diet. She had a peculiar liking for sour food. She was sensitive to the cold climate. Her bowel movements were irregular. Her thirst, perspiration, urination, and sleep were normal. Her menses was regular.
