A 22-years-old female, Miss. P.S. (PIN 32461) from Indore, Madhya Pradesh started treatment for her Lichen Planus complaints in June 2017 with Life Force, and her case was taken over the phone. She was suffering from Lichen Planus from April 2017. She had eruptions on her hands, legs and in the mouth with intense itching and burning in the lesions. Her lesions were purplish, brown of half centimeters in size approximately. There were multiple small spots present on her body. The disease was spreading rapidly, and she was developing multiple hyper-pigmented spots. At the time of case-taking, she was not taking medication for her lichen planus.
Besides lichen planus, she was suffering from PCOD since 2016 due to which she had irregular menses and, occasionally, she used to get acne on her face.
Her elder sister had the same complaints of lichen planus and PCOD. Her mother, father, or any other family member didn't have any major illness.
Her appetite and thirst were normal. She had a marked craving for spicy food. Her urine and bowel habits were normal. She used to sweat a lot. She had a disturbed sleep used to get up at the slightest sound.
Self And Family Set-Up:
She was pursuing her first year Interior Designing course. She was a happy-go-lucky girl with a reserved personality. She used to get angry very easily. She used to stay with her parents and two siblings (i.e. 1 younger brother and 1 younger sister).
The case was analyzed by Dr. Shah in detail, and he prescribed his research-based medicines to the patient. Also, the necessary dietary instructions were given to her.
After six months of the homeopathic treatment, her lichen planus was better by 40%. No new spots appeared on her body, and her old spots were getting better. Her relief from the itching and burning sensation was also better by 40%. The intensity and the spread of the lesions were controlled.
In April 2018, her relief from the complaints of lichen planus was better by 80%. She no more suffered from the spread of the disease. No new spots had developed on her body. Also, she no more suffered from the burning sensation and itching.
This case illustrates that homeopathy treats lichen planus effectively and promotes the recovery from lichen planus to a great extent safely without any side-effects.
