Leukocytoclasitc Vasculitis Treated Effectively At Life Force

26-years-old Business Analyst, Miss. DD (patient identification number 30969) approached Life Force Homeopathy for the treatment of leukocytoclastic vasculitis.

Her complaints had started 2 years back. Once in every 6 months, she used to get reddish purpuric rash with severe itching on the lower legs. The size of rash would vary from tiny eruptions to 1-1.5 cm. She used to develop swelling on her lower legs along with the rash. She used to suffer pain in legs, especially in her calf muscles during the acute episode of vasculitis. Each episode would last for 3-5 days. She observed that, after scratching and after removal of hair on legs with wax, the eruption used to increase. She used to take antibiotics, anti-allergic, and anti-inflammatory oral medicines for each acute episode. Sometimes, when the symptoms used to be severe, her physician used to prescribe her local steroids as well. Her major concern was the frequency of recurrence increased to once in 2-3 months since November 2016. On investigations, her C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rate was high indicating active inflammation.

Miss DD had a past history of piles and recurrent gastritis. She had suffered from anaphylactic reaction after insect bite 5 years back.

In April 2017, the patient reported 40% relief in itching, purpuric rash, pain, and swelling on the lower legs. The frequency and intensity of vasculitis was less in the last month. The patient continued the medicines prescribed by Dr. Shah.
