Homeopathy Healed A Tinea Cruris Patient By Eliminating Drug Dependency

Tinea, often known as Jock itch, is a fungal infection that causes a red and itchy rash in the warm and moist areas of the body. It often affects the groin areas and inner thighs and forms ring-shaped patches so it is also known as ringworms.

It is often observed in the patients or individuals who are obese, diabetic patients, and people having a weakened immune system.

Fortunately, you have homeopathy to treat the skin condition gently, effectively, and safely without any side effects. Let’s have a look at a case of tinea cruris that healed with homeopathy effectively.


Case Study

A 39-year-old man, Mr. A. (PIN: 29065) visited Life Force and started Homeopathic treatment for his complaint of Tinea cruris.

He was suffering from tinea since the last year. The lesions of fungal infection (tinea) were present on his lower abdominal area and both the inner thighs.

As his dermatologist had diagnosed the skin condition, he was under heavy doses of corticosteroid ointments and antibiotics for the same. Due to this, his tinea cruris lesions used to subside temporarily for a few days and would re-appear once the medications were stopped. The repetition of this cycle was occurring for the past few months.


Physical Generals:

The patient was a bit obese and had a strong build and a robust personality. Due to his skin complaints and continuous itching in lesions, his daily routine was disturbed. His appetite was good and had craving for salty food. His thirst was good. The patient’s sleep was refreshing.


Psychological and Family Make-Up:

He was very reserved, calm, and introverted.

The patient was working as a sales manager. He stayed with his family members. Everyone in his family enjoyed good health and good relation with the patient. He had a loving wife and a son of six years of age.

He had no history of any other illness.

The only complaint he suffered was chronic constipation for the past few months. He was taking laxatives for the same that did not help him much.


At Life Force:

After evaluating the case in detail. Dr. Shah prescribed a few research-based homeopathic medicines along with a customized diet and nutrition regime. The patient was informed about the tapering off the dosage of corticosteroids and to not stop them all of a sudden as it can lead to an increase in the disease symptoms.



On 1st August 2016, the patient reported that there was a mild improvement with the homeopathic medicines. The itching had reduced than before, the ringworm patches present on both the inner thighs earlier were now only present on one of the thighs. A few lesions were still present as he was reducing the dosage of corticosteroids gradually. But, overall, he was healing. The patient was stable with the medicines. He had been advised to lose weight so he worked out on it and lost 2 kgs of weight.

On 8th September 2016, the patient reported that he was further better with the medicines. His relief from the complaints of tinea was almost 70% improved, particularly itching which was very minimal now. No new lesions had developed. He had stopped taking anti-fungal medicines & corticosteroids for his complaint for more than a month this time. He was only on homeopathic medicines. The patient was happy and filled with joy after experiencing the progress in his recovery from the condition.

On 12th October 2016, the patient reported that he was stable. No new ringworm patches had appeared; not a single patch had appeared. Also, no itching was observed in the last few months.

On 25th November 2016, there was more improvement with the medicines. The itching was very negligible now. The spread of the disease was completely under control. She was overall stable with the medicines.

On 2nd January 2016, the patient reported 90% to 95% improvement in his relief in the complaints. He no more experienced itching in the affected skin. There was no spread of the disease. The active lesions had subsided, and only hyperpigmented marks were remaining. The patient mentioned that they were also getting lighter day by day.

He mentioned that he had lost hopes with his skin itching a few months back and thought that this skin disease will never let him live like a normal person. He experienced a great recovery from Tinea cruris with Homeopathic medicines.

The patient thanked Dr. Shah and the whole Life Force team for treating him and eliminating his dependency on corticosteroid ointments & antifungal cream. He completely recovered from tinea.

Recently, on 11th March 2021, the patient was diagnosed with abscess and boils on the arms and forearms, in which he experienced improvement as well. The patient experienced a 50% improvement in relief in the condition.



This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating cases of tinea cruris miraculously and eliminating the dependency on corticosteroids and anti-fungal ointments successfully and safely without any side effects. The patient experience incredible improvement in skin health with homeopathy gently and naturally.
