Middle aged man living with extensive lesions of psoriasis since 15 years, was tired of this illness and would feel suicidal at times.

A 44 years old male patient Mr. H. P. (Patient Ref. No. S5323) reported to the clinic with complaints of psoriasis for 15 years. He had extensive lesions all over his body. He had a history of short remissions twice in the past but for last 4 years his lesions had remained the same. He had erythematous, scaly lesions all over his body with much itching. His complaints would be worse in summer as well as winter. The itching would be worse at night. He said that he as well as his family was tired of this illness and he would feel suicidal due to psoriasis. He was weeping when describing his frustration due to this disease. He had received Homoeopathic treatment in the past but for a short while and with no significant relief.

psoriasis on body

He was a short and lean person with an average appetite. He craved sweets, spicy and fried food. He was a chilly person and could not tolerate cold easily. He was an alcoholic for many years and would take alcohol twice daily.

He was a carpenter by profession and stayed with his wife, his mother and two sons. The major stress in his life was that he was jobless and had a loan that he had to pay back. He said that he felt frustrated like a beggar who had nothing at all. He was very despondent and had suicidal thoughts from despair about his illness. He had also become very irritable due to this illness.

Based on this history he was prescribed Psorinum 200 for his complaints. Within 6 months of treatment, he was almost 70% cured of his illness. He met with an accident at about this time and was put on antibiotics during the treatment. His psoriasis took an uphill course during this period and for another few weeks. But with continued treatment, this exacerbation was brought under control. At the end of the next 5 months, he was completely free from this disease and there were only a few marks left behind (no active lesions). These marks also disappeared after treatment for another month.

This case shows us how even chronic and stubborn diseases like psoriasis can be effectively handled with Homoeopathy and can be restored to health completely.

Remark: The remedy prescribed in these cases is patient-specific i.e. it has been prescribed based on the symptoms specific to the patient at that point of time. It is advisable that the patient does not indulge in any self-medication.
