Palmoplantar Psoriasis Treated Successfully with Individualized Homeopathic Medicines – Case Series
Palmoplantar psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects the palmar and plantar surface of the body and causes itching, burning, scaly, plaque formation, cracking, and bleeding of the skin. The emergence of Palmoplantar psoriasis is a matter of threat not only because of its unknown etiology but also its increased association with lifestyle disorders and because there is no cure for this condition till date by the conventional therapeutic methods. Day by day it is hampering the quality of the socio-personal life of the patients. Misuse of anti-itch creams, ointments, and steroidal therapies is increasing the burden of the disease, still, there is almost no evidence of reduced impact of the disease. The triggering factors such as environmental changes, stress, and emotional health disturbances are creating the increased chances of co-morbidities. This case series shows five different diagnosed cases of Palmoplantar Psoriasis which were treated in the Outpatient departments. All the five mentioned cases were treated and recovered with individualized Homoeopathic treatment without recurrence and further complications. Clinically, the improvement of the quality of life of each patient was assessed by the Palmoplantar quality-of-life instrument score. This evidence directs towards a positive outcome of using the Homoeopathic medicines alone in the treatment of Palmoplantar Psoriasis and the ideas of individualization form the rising ground of future medical guidelines.
