A 35 -years-old lady, Mrs. M.N.M. (Patient Ref No: 19888) presented her complaints of skin allergy due to sunlight that she was suffering since ten years. The patient was a resident of Rajasthan so was unable to visit our centre. She sent us all the details about her disease on 24th September 2012. She had a small red purplish eruption on her right hand, on ears, back, and on neck. She had extensive itching, which was aggravated due to the exposure to sunlight. Patient wanted to scratch it and that resulted in blood oozing from the site.
Her appetite was excessive. She was very fond of sour & salty food, such as chips etc. Her thirst was average. She was not comfortable in hot weather. Her motion, urine, sleep, & menses were normal. She had mostly dreamt of snakes & death of her relative.
In his family, her grandmother was suffering from diabetes. Apart from this, there was no other major illness in the family.
She was reserved and sad in nature. She had low confidence. She was not comfortable with talking to strangers. Her emotion was suppressed. She had the fear of darkness.
After studying her detailed case history, she was prescribed a constitutional homeopathic remedy & research based molecule for her complaints.
After 2 months of medication on 21st November, the patient gave her follow-up. There was a drastic improvement seen in the eruptions and itching. She experienced 75% improvement.
When the patient contacted the Life Force centre on 25th Jan 2013, she mentioned that some new eruption was seen since 1 month due to the exposure of sunlight. She suffered from mild itching. There was no other complaint so Dr. Shah again prescribed the medicine.
2 months later on 20th March 2013 she gave a follow-up. She reported 80% improvement after 2 months of medication. After this, some new eruptions were seen but the condition was under control.
On 1st July 2013, the condition of her old spots had improved by 80%. Itching was experienced in new spots only.
In the summer her condition had aggravated a bit, hence Dr. Shah had made some changes in his prescription. When this she gave her follow-up on 4th Oct 2013, her condition showed a good improvement.
After this, the patient’s condition was stable so she discontinued her treatment between 2013 to 2017. Due to the transfer in her job her climate changed & her stress levels increased hence her complaint resurfaced.
She contacted our centre again on 28th Feb 2017. After studying her case all over again, Dr. Shah prescribed a suitable medicine.
This case shows that eczema can be effectively controlled with homeopathic medicines without the use of external applications of any kind. Homeopathy cures the condition from within and restores the deviated immunity of the individual back to normalcy.
