Mr. F.J.D (Patient Identification Number 17961) visited Life Force on 13th January 2012 from Vakoka, Santacruz. He was suffering from Lichen Planus (LP) for last 6 months.
He was having reddish-black eruptions of Lichen planus on the face, neck, hands, and scalp. There was a lot of itching and dryness. His complaints would increase exposure to the sun. The lesions were spreading rapidly for last 8-10 days.
He had used steroid cream and antihistamines for his LICHEN PLANUS for an initial one month. He did not find any significant relief with those medicines. So he stopped taking those medicines after one month. He was not taking any medicines for last 4-5 months.
He had suffered from LICHEN PLANUS 15 years ago. That time it was treated with steroids. He was completely better for 15 years and then again it had started for last 6 months.
He was also suffering from Hypertension which was controlled with conventional medicines. He had a family history of Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus.
His appetite was good. He had a strong liking for sweets and fish. Thirst, bowel habits, and perspiration were normal. He was more tolerant of cold weather. Heat would increase the itching on Lichen Planus lesions. His sleep was good.
Mr. F.J.P was a retired person staying with his wife and son. His elder son was in the USA. He had anxiety about his elder son. He would continuously think about him. He was calm and reserved by nature. He would not like to mix with many people. He would never share his emotions with others. He was fastidious. He wanted things to be at proper place. He was frustrated with his Lichen Planus. The itching would irritate him a lot. One of his friends told him about Life Force and Dr. Rajesh Shah's expertise in treating LICHEN PLANUS. He came to Life Force with great hopes.
Dr. Rajesh Shah studied his case and research-based homeopathic medicines along with his constitutional medicine were prescribed.
In his first follow up on 17th February 2012, he reported a 40-50% improvement in his LICHEN PLANUS. Active lesions had flattened. Itching and dryness were reduced by 50%. His feedback was studied and medicines were upgraded.
On 18th April 2012, there was almost 90% improvement in his LICHEN PLANUS. The itching had stopped completely. Only hyper-pigmented marks were there on his face, neck, and scalp. He was very satisfied with the treatment.
He visited on 18th April 2012 to thank Dr. Rajesh Shah. He is still continuing the treatment for complete recovery.
Lichen Planus is considered a very difficult skin condition and most physicians struggle in treating it and patients do suffer. With the expertise gained at Life Force, the task becomes very easy and we have achieved the highest level of consistency in the treatment of Lichen Planus.
