A 31-years-old male, Mr. P.M. (PIN: 35014) visited our Paud branch on 29th December 2017 with the complaint of atopic dermatitis which he was suffering for six months. His disease had progressed for two months. At the time of consultation, his legs were affected by the disease. He was suffering from itching, mild cracks, burning, and dryness. The patient used to scratch due to the urge to scratch which developed due to the condition, and scratching resulted in itching and burning from the site. He had not taken any treatment for his complaint. Besides this, he was not suffering from any other disease.
His appetite was average. He was a non-vegetarian by diet. He was quite fond of spicy food and chicken. His thirst was less than average. He was not feeling comfortable in the summer weather. His motion, urine, & sleep were normal. There was no specific dream.
The patient was working in an investment firm. His father had retired from Airforce. His mother was a homemaker, and his sister was working in a private firm.
In his family, his sister was also suffering from atopic dermatitis. She was also taking the homeopathic treatment from Life Force for six months, and she had experienced a good improvement in her condition. His cousin had vitiligo. Except this, there was no other specific disease in his family. He had chickenpox in his past medical history.
He was very calm and composed by nature. He was very confident & bold. He didn’t take tension. He was helpful by nature. He was expressive and adjustable.
After studying his detailed case history, he was prescribed research-based molecule for his complaint.
After two months of the medication on 22nd February 2018, when the patient gave his follow-up, there was some improvement observed in his recovery from the eruptions and itching. He had experienced 15% improvement in the relief from all the symptoms. His relief from the burning and cracking symptoms had also improved.
When the patient gave the next follow-up on 5th April 2018, no new eruptions had appeared. His condition had improved drastically. The recovery from all his symptoms had improved by more than 50%.
Two months later on 29th June 2018, he reported 60% improvement in his condition. His cracks and burning symptoms had totally cured. He was very happy with the treatment.
A few months later on 26th September 2018, when he gave his follow-up, his condition had improved a lot. His all eruptions had improved by more than 80% in terms of recovery. He no more suffered from the itching, burning, and cracks. Just a mild dryness was remaining. He was advised to apply coconut oil.
The patient gave his next follow-up on 4th November 2018. He informed that his eruptions on the legs were almost cured. Except for the dryness, all other symptoms, such as itching, and burning, had totally cured.
He is still continuing our medicine for further recovery.
This case shows that atopic dermatitis can be effectively controlled with homeopathic medicines without the use of external applications of any kind. Homeopathy is highly effective in treating atopic dermatitis successfully and safely without any side-effects.
