a common chronic and recurrent skin disorder characterised by dry
well circumscribed, silvery scales or plaques which usually appear
over the scalp, elbows, knees, back or skin folds but it may affect
any or all parts of the skin.
Psoriasis observed as an inherited
disorder in few cases; autoimmune disorder in many cases. Since
the other systems of medicines fail to treat the root cause recurrence
is very common.
Homoeopathic approach of any case
is to treat the patient as a whole individually and not the disease.
That is the reason why Homoeopathic medicines treat even the so
called incurable diseases and doing wonder in the field of medicine.
I represent a very severe case of Psoriasis, which was treated by
eminent skin specialists, until she came to me for consultation.
The patient was a young lady of 20 years old, fair and lean came
with her husband since she had patches of thick scales all over
the body, limbs and scalp with cracks and she was unable to flex
the limbs fully. She was totally dejected and vexed about her complaints.
after strong Allopathic medicines she had only limited improvement.
She was suffering from this awkward and dreadful condition for the
past 3 years. It initially appeared over the scalp and then gradually
spread to all over the body.
patches were well-defined dry plaques covered with shiny silvery
scales. She developed cracks in the patches of forearm and legs.
had intense itching in night, which was ameliorated by hot water
bathing. She used to wake up in the midnight due to burning pain
in the patches.
had pain in the left knee joint of 6 months duration, which was
aggravated by initial movement. She used to get frequent attacks
of cold when she was a child. She had a child of 2 years old and
her menstrual history was normal. She preferred hot food and hot
irritable and short tempered. History of suicidal attempts twice
when there was severe aggravation of her skin complaints.
After going through
the case history the patient was treated with the following prescriptions,
which proved the efficacy of our dynamic medicines, when it is applied
appropriately on the basic of individualization.
My first prescription was Arsenicum
Album 30 - one dose daily for 3 days on 1-04-1999.
