At the time of consultation, his legs, hands, chest, back, and abdomen were affected by the disease.
He was suffering from severe itching and burning. The patient had developed red vertical lines of eruptions on the affected body parts.
Most often, his disease appeared after the dinner. Angioedema was absent in his case. Besides this, he was also suffering from constipation for four years.
The patient was non-vegetarian by diet. His appetite was average. He was very fond of chicken and spicy foods. His thirst was average.
He was a hot patient. His motion was hard. His perspiration was profuse. His urine and sleep were normal. There was no specific dream.
In his family, his paternal grandfather, father, and uncle were suffering from diabetes. His mother was suffering from hypertension.
He had no specific past medical history.
He was reserved in nature. He was over-ambitious and used to always think about his profession.
He had the guilt that he hadn’t given his 100% to his career, even in the past during his college days.
He had a fear of his future. He was very sensitive and never used to hurt anybody. He liked the company of his friends.
He and his wife both were working in the IT sector.
After studying his detailed case history, he was prescribed research-based molecule for his urticaria complaint.
After two months of the medication on 5th January 2017, when the patient gave his follow-up, there was some improvement observed in his eruptions and itching.
He also obtained some improvement in his relief from the constipation complaint.
When the patient gave his next follow-up on 15th February 2017, he had got a 40% improvement in his relief from the complaint.
The frequency of his episode was reduced to once in seven to eight days. His itching and burning had also reduced. His relief from constipation was also 50% improved.
When he gave his next follow-up on 28th March 2017, the relief from all his symptoms had improved by 50%. The patient was very happy with his improvement.
In the next month, due to some official work, he went to the US for the duration of one year. He informed us that, after returning to India, he will restart the treatment.
He returned to India in March 2018, and then he restarted his treatment. Due to the one-year gap in following the medicine, his condition was bit aggravated.
After restarting the medicine in March 2018, when he gave his next follow-up on 3rd May 2018, he experienced some improvement in his condition. His itching had reduced.
When he gave his recent follow-up on 18th June 2018, his condition had improved a lot. His urticaria complaint was 80% improved.
All his symptoms, such as itching, redness, vertical lines, and sensitivity, had reduced a lot and his condition had improved significantly. His relief from the constipation complaint had also improved by more than 80%.
He is still continuing our medicine for the further recovery.
This case shows that urticaria can be effectively controlled with homeopathic medicines without the use of external applications of any kind.
