    A Lady Found 70% Recovery From Oral Lichen Planus With Homeopathy

    A 43-year-old lady patient, Mrs. V.M. (PIN: 26675) visited the Borivali clinic of Life Force on 4th September 2015. She was suffering from white lacy blisters in the mouth and the upper and lower lip, and her tongue had turned white. The patient was unable to have food with a normal spice level and was experiencing discomfort. The color of the affected area, sometimes, used to turn blue. Earlier, it was diagnosed as Herpes.

    The patient has no other complaints.

    After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah diagnosed her condition as Oral Lichen Planus and prescribed her Thuja 30.

    At the first follow-up on 21st October 2015, the patient had no significant improvement in her relief.

    On the follow-up on 2nd December 2015, she experienced a 30% improvement in her relief from the discomforts in the mouth area, but the skin eruptions had increased on her back and buttocks.

    Later, on the follow-up on 5th February 2016, the patient had experienced no improvement in relief. She felt that the lesions in her mouth had increased.

    At the follow-up on 13th July 2016, the patient was better by 30%.

    When the patient came for a follow-up on 17th September 2016, her new eruptions had started healing. The reduction in the frequency and intensity of the eruptions had improved.

    At the follow-up on 10th December 2016, her condition was not much improvement. There was no change in her condition.

    On the follow-up on 3rd January 2018, her lesions had increased. The cause for the increase in the lesions was not clear.

    At the follow-up on 20th April 2018, her condition was better. However, the lesions of lichen planus were still bothering her.

    When the patient gave follow-up on 15th October 2018, the patient’s recovery was 70% better and so had stopped the medicine.

    At the follow-up on 3rd March 2021, very tiny lesions relapsed on her forearm. She had no complaints related to the eruptions in her mouth.

    At the follow-up on 26th April 2021, she experienced a 30% improvement in recovery from the condition.

    On 16th June 2021, the patient was 40% better. No new lesions had appeared.

    On the follow-up on 21st August 2021, the patient experienced 70% improvement. No new lesions nor the spread of the disease had occurred.
