Lichen Planus Treated By individualized Homoeopathic Medicine- A Case Report
Lichen planus is an inflammatory dermatosis characterized by violaceous, scaly, polygonal flat-topped papules involving the flexor aspects of the wrists, lower limbs and the genital and oral mucosas. Lesions generally clear up within a few months to years, leaving areas of hyperpigmentation. The prevalence of LP in the total population is unknown. The frequency is estimated at between 0.5 and 1.0 %. LP affects patients of all ages, but up to 95% of all cases occur in adults, with most patients presenting between the third and sixth decades of life. In this case a male patient approached to our Out Patient department with complaints of multiple, flat topped, blackish papules involving the dorsal surface of feet and on anterior surface of right shin bone for last 1 year. His complaints were getting aggravated from rainy and spring season, with voluptuous itching aggravates at night. We started our treatment with Natrum Sulph 200/2 doses, followed by Natrum Muriaticum 200/2 dose and Natrum Muriaticum 1M/ 2 doses, from then patient shows gradual improvement started. Within a period of 3 months patient shows improvement and it takes 1 more week to subside other residual complaints. This case report not only portrays effectiveness of individualised homoeopathy but also focuses on the cost effectiveness of homoeopathic treatments.
