A middle-aged woman, aged sixty-four years, Mrs. PMM (Patient Identification Number: 22481 ), visited Life Force, Chembur branch on 21st March 2014
She was suffering from Chronic Lichenified Eczema for two years. Scalp, Eyes, chin, elbows, legs were covered with Eczema. She had an intolerable Itching and dryness of skin which later developed hyperpigmentation on the affected areas. Her skin worsens in cold weather.
She was taking Ayurvedic treatment since four months
She had taken steroids and Homoeopathic treatment in past
She was also suffering from Joints pain, Hypertension, and Acidity
She was obese & had flabby stature consuming a vegetarian diet. Her appetite was average & consumed an average quantity of water every day. She had craving for sour & spicy and aversion to sweets. She passed satisfactory stools every day and had sound sleep every day.
Her brother was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus and Eczema and sister was suffering from Underactive Thyroid.
She was calm and composed. She gets anxious over small things.
Dr Shah studied the case in detail and prescribed her one of the research-based medicines.
In the initial course of treatment, she had 85 % improvement in Eczema, her scaling, burning, swelling, Itching had improved considerably.
After taking two years of treatment, she was very much satisfied and happy with the treatment. She had no new eruptions, dryness of skin had reduced thereby reducing the hyperpigmentation of skin.
Hyper-pigmentation of skin has also reduced.
She is still under our care and taking treatment for Cervical spondylitis.
Conclusion: Homoeopathy treats the disturbances of the immune system and thus treats the roots of Eczema having a long and lasting recovery. It also helps in reducing the intensity of disease when exposed to triggering factors that can trigger a flare-up of eczema.
