A 34-years-old male patient, Mr. V.N. from Goa (PIN 15188) visited Life Force Chembur branch on 10th December 2010 for getting his complaints of lichen planus treated. He had lichen planus from the past two years. It had started with blackish-brown eruptions over the lower limbs. He had lesions on legs, arms, elbows, thigh, lower back, and hips. He suffered from itching and dryness of the skin. His complainants started due to stress. He was on the conventional treatment, but he had obtained no relief.
Besides lichen planus, he was also suffering from the frequent cold for many years. His cold was triggered by pollution. It used to last for one week in two months duration.
He had an average appetite. He preferred a non-vegetarian diet. He had profuse perspiration all over the body. He was sensitive to the cold.
He was in the quality field of a manufacturing company. His wife was a homemaker. His brother worked in a garage. His father had expired a few years back.
He had not suffered from any major illness in the past.
His father and mother both were suffering from cancer.
He was a sober and gentle person. He had a problem with his relationship. He had experienced a lot of stress in the past, as his father was an alcoholic and his financial condition was very poor. Now, he had the stress of work as his boss was not good by nature.
Dr. Shah studied his case in detail and prescribed Thuja 30 along with his research-based molecules for lichen planus.
He gave a follow-up over the phone on 25th May 2011. His condition had aggravated. A new lesion had also appeared. The itching was also increased. Dr. Shah revised the case and gave medication again.
On 30th Jan 2012, he reported over the phone that there was a 75% improvement in his relief from the complaints. No new spots had appeared, and his old spots had reduced. The itching had also reduced a lot.
He called up us on 13th April 2013 and informed that there was an 80% improvement in his relief from the complaints. His scar and pigmentation had also reduced a lot.
On 15th December 2014, his condition improved further. The patient was happy with the treatment.
He reported on 15th April 2015 that a few new lesions were seen on his body. The itching had also increased over the old spots. Again, his case was revised and medicines were prescribed.
On 13th April 2016, he gave a follow-up and informed that there was a 50% improvement in his lesions. He also informed that the previous trigger may have occurred due to the stress.
He reported on 15th June 2017 with 70% relief in his condition. His itching had reduced. No new lesion had appeared for a few months.
When the patient visited on 22nd Feb 2018, there was an 80%-90% improvement in his condition. His lesions were reduced in size. The itching was also reduced. No new lesion had appeared after 8 months. The patient was very happy with the result.
The patient is still continuing the homeopathic treatment from Life Force for further improvement.
This case highlights that Dr. Shah's research-based medicines for Lichen Planus not only help you recover from the disease but also stop the rapid spread of the disease.
