Hailey Hailey Disease

Introduction:

The Hailey-Hailey disease is also known as familial benign chronic pemphigus. It is a rare inherited skin condition, in which red, scaly areas or small blisters appear at sites of friction. The condition tends to get worse with sweating and friction and in hot weather.

Causes:

The condition is inherited; there is a 1 in 2 [50:50] chance that each child of an affected parent will inherit the skin problem.

Symptoms:

Hailey Hailey Disease is a nuisance rather than a serious problem, even though the affected skin is itchy and uncomfortable, and the patches come and go. The affected skin may be uncomfortable if the skin surfaces are continually rubbing e.g. in the groins when walking. Very rarely a severe flare-up in the groins, genital area or in the crease of the buttocks may make walking and work very uncomfortable.

The first signs of the condition usually appear between the ages of 15 and 40 years, but it may also begin outside this age range. The severity varies enormously and is unpredictable. Red, scaly areas or small blisters appear at areas of friction, especially at the sides of the neck or in the skin folds under the arms, at the tops of the legs [groins] or under the breasts. The skin looks entirely normal in between active episodes and does not scar. Many patients notice that their condition improves as they get older.

It is very common for the condition to be mistaken for eczema (or dermatitis), a sweat rash, ringworm or impetigo (a bacterial skin infection). The diagnosis of the Hailey-Hailey disease can be made by examining a sample of the skin (a biopsy) under the microscope.

Treatment for Hailey Disease

The underlying genetic defect cannot be altered. However, treatment does help and long remissions are common.

Scope of Homeopathy:

Homeopathy has good scope in the treatment of this condition. This condition many a time becomes resistant to the conventional treatment of local steroids and physicians often resort to oral steroids to control the flare-ups; this can very well be avoided by opting for homeopathy. We have treated and documented about 17 cases (by Dec 2017) and have observed significant recovery in many of them. 

Homeopathy helps to reduce the intensity and frequency of the flare-up and helps to lead a comfortable life. The medicines help symptomatically to reduce the itching, redness, and inflammation. It reduces the dependency on steroids and helps in the overall long-term management of the condition, in a natural way using safe and effective medicines.
