This is the case of Mr. K.N (Patient Ref. No. 3767) a 22 yrs old male from Newark, USA, a student of Computer science, reported with urticaria for 3 yrs. The patient would get red rashes on the skin wherever he would scratch the skin. The complaints would begin with intense itching which would later lead to the development of rashes on the parts scratched, more on the back and legs. These complaints would occur 3 to 4 times daily being worst at night. He would suffer badly after taking chicken, meat, eggs, and pickles. The itching would get worse after a warm bath. He would experience relief only after taking anti-histaminic, the effect of which would also be short-lasting.
Other aspects of his case:
The stress of achieving deadlines for projects or assignments was an important element in this case especially because he would procrastinate his work till the last moment. He was a shy person especially when it came to interacting with females. He would fear dogs, lizards, snakes, and ghosts. He would be afraid when alone in the darkness. He was very attached to his friends and would be extremely hurt when they would misunderstand him. There was no history of any major illnesses in the past or in his family.
Based on these symptoms the patient was prescribed homeopathic medicines and he did extremely well with the treatment. Within just 4 months of treatment, his urticaria was almost cured. He would no longer get the rashes as he used to get before. He would occasionally get some kind of irritation of the skin but that would subside soon enough without any treatment. Thus he got cured of his 3 years long problem and he led a much better quality of life.
