A 26 years lady, Miss V. J. (PIN L-11271) came to Life Force Homeopathy for treatment of lichen planus. She had lichen planus for two to three years, it was extensively spread on the legs, forearms, chest, and back. There was marked itching. The eruptions in the armpit had a burning sensation.
She had been on oral cortisone for 6 months.
She was a vegetarian with an average thirst and appetite. Her bowel habits and urine were normal. She was equally sensitive to heat and cold. Her sleep was disturbed due to excessive itching all over the body.
She was a happy-go-lucky person with no major stress in her life. She was very cheerful and patient as a person.
On studying her case in detail, Dr Rajesh Shah prescribed her research-based medicines for lichen planus.
She was advised by Dr Shah to stop with the cortisone. In the initial stages, due to the stoppage of steroids, there was a flare-up in the skin condition. Dr Shah explained this was due to the adverse effect of steroids and will take some time to subside.
Gradually the eruptions started to subside. The itching was better by 40% in 4 weeks.
In 6 weeks the spread slowed down, there were no new eruptions. The treatment was continued further.
In 8 months, most of the eruptions on the hands, legs, back had subsided. She was 75% better.
The itching and burning reduced substantially.
There were marks that had begun to fade.
By the end of one year, she got normal skin with no eruptions at all. Her post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks had faded but a few spots were left for which she is continuing the treatment with us.
She is very happy with this result and is confidently in search of a life partner for herself.
Homeopathy changed her life.
Homeopathy works wonders even in extensive and steroid-dependent cases of lichen planus.
