Case-1: Opthalmic problems tackled effectively with homoeopathy

This is the case of Master P.S (Patient Ref. No. L-6671), a 11 years old male child who was brought to the clinic for complaints of hypersensitivity of the eyes especially to bright light. Patient would be unable to open his eyes in bright light and he had repetitive blinking of the eyes. Patient also had conjunctival redness and dryness of the eyes. He would experience much difficulty in opening the eyes in the morning on account of the extreme dryness of the eyes.

(Inability to open eyes)
The complaints had started since 1 year when he had been diagnosed as having Steven's Johnson syndrome. At that time patient had developed reaction to certain drugs and thereafter he had developed some rashes all over the body. The rashes had involved the skin as well as the eyes at that time. He had required admission in the hospital at that time and was treated for the same. But even after completing the treatment, the symptoms of photophobia and dryness of eyes and conjunctival redness persisted. He was on eye-drops that would give him symptomatic relief temporarily (artificial tears) but was not taking care of he underlying cause. He would have to use these drops every 2 hours but it was difficult for him to keep a track of this all the day long, every single day.

He also had complaints of frequent colds for past 3 years and he would get these colds once every 2-3 months and lasting for a week.

His appetite was average and he was more fond of pizzas and such foods rather than the regular home made food. He had aversion to sweets and milk. He would occasionally talk in sleep, otherwise the sleep was sound.

He stayed with his parents, grandparents and a younger brother. There was no history of any major illness in the past. In the family, his grandparents had hypertension and diabetes. He was very active and an alert child and he loved to play. He had become irritable since the onset of this illness and he would get angry if anybody would not listen to him. He had become obstinate too and would threaten his mother that he would not put his eye-drops if he was not obeyed. He was very tolerant of his problems and would not express them to others; he would keep it to himself. Even if he would get hurt while playing or would get injured some other times, he would not tell anyone at home. Basically he was a very naughty and playful child.

Based on this history, he was prescribed a homoeopathic medicine named Pulsatilla along with a few doses of Carcinosin and he was significantly better in a span of 4 months itself. His photophobia was much better and the dryness of the eyes was completely gone. He could open the eyes in the morning with much lesser discomfort as compared to before. The conjunctival redness which would be persistent always was completely gone. His complaints of recurrent colds also improved gradually. What was achieved in this case was a relative freedom from the dependence of the patient on certain eye-drops which would give him very temporary relief. His other ophthalmic complaints, which he had become used to living with, were also tackled effectively with homoeopathic treatment. He continued treatment for some more time for complete relief from the remaining symptoms.

Remark: The remedy prescribed in this case 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.
