Treatment of Eczematous Lesions with a Rare Remedy Folliculinum – A Case Report
As defined by the World Allergy Organization (WAO) revised nomenclature in 2003, eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis) is a chronic, relapsing, and itchy inflammatory skin condition. In the acute stage, eczematous lesions are characterised by poorly defined erythema with surface change (oedema, vesicles, and weeping). Folliculinum (a Sarcode), commonly known as Oestron, is a natural hormone secreted by the ovaries. It is obtained as a white, water insoluble crystalline compound. Being insoluble in water, initially up-to first three attenuations, are prepared by trituration. It is only the fourth Hahnemannian centesimal attenuation that becomes the first attenuation to be soluble in water. In 2010 the birth control pill celebrated its 50th anniversary. Three generations of women in industrialized countries have made use of it. In this case report, female patient suffering from eczematous lesions on legs was consulted OPD. The history revealed use of Oral Contraceptive Pills. She was treated successfully with folliculinum 200 one dose daily. The patient weas completely cured within 3 months. The improvement is evident from disappearance of eczematous lesions as seen in follow ups.
