Eruptions on knees, elbows, back and on scalp. The lesions had persisted for all these years without any remission. There was marked scaling of the lesions.

    A 33 years old male patient Mr. R. S. (Patient Ref. No. L4798), reported with complaints of psoriasis since 3 years. He had eruptions on his knees, elbows, back and on his scalp. The lesions had persisted for all these years without any remission. There was marked scaling of the lesions. The itching was present though it was not very intense. The symptoms would be worse during winter.

    He also had complaints of pain in the joints since 3 years. He would get pain in the small joints of the hands and fingers, wrists and knees. The pain would be worse when he would rest the affected joints and would be better on moving these joints. He would get some relief from warmth. The pain in the knees would be worse when he would be sitting. His RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) test was positive.

    He was fond of fish and spicy foods and had aversion to vegetables. He had a short and stout constitution. He was a mild and gentle person with a quiet nature. He would prefer not to get into other people's matters and would keep away from such things. He said that he would prefer to listen to the opposite person rather than reacting to what was said. He said that he was completely satisfied with his life. He had faced a lot of struggles in his life earlier and had seen tough times. But now he was well settled in his career and had no worries. He was fastidious and very particular about his things especially at his workplace; he was very particular about the way he wanted things to be done there. He was a kind and sympathetic person by nature.

    There was no history of any major illness in his past. On the family front too there was no other significant medical history except that his mother had asthma.

    Based on this history he was prescribed Phosphorus 200 along with a dose of Carcinosin. In the initial 3 months of treatment, his lesions increased and the remained static for some time. After this period he noticed a substantial improvement in the lesions in a very short duration. He remarked at this stage of treatment that his complaints had never been in such a remission ever since he got this disease. His lesions on the elbows had almost disappeared and his scalp lesions were better by more than 75%. There were few small, new lesions on the back but they did not persist for very long. His complaints of joint pains were much better than before at the end of about 8 months of treatment. He continued the treatment for another few months for complete relief from psoriasis. His joint pains would relapse once in a while but it would be mild and would be controlled with the medication. Thus overall he did very well with the treatment; his psoriasis was cured and his joint pain was under good control.

    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 in time. It is advisable that the patient does not indulge in any self-medication.
