would itch in the heat and looked unsightly. She had a propensity to catch
colds on exposure to cold air particularly when exposed to drafts of air.
Another feature was an urgency to pass urine which at times was difficult
to control. The skin was generally dry, resulted in itching off and on-but
she perspired a lot on her scalp.
Homeopathic remedy Silicea 6X was
prescribed with great improvement in the itching in the keloid and over a
period of a few months much to our satisfaction, the keloid started
progressively reducing in size, flattening and ultimately shrunk( her
urinary urgency too improved largely).

Case - X (Eosinophilic
An interesting case of Eosinophilic Bronchitis where the
patient had a persistent teasing dry cough
Which had been continuing for months temporarily helped by sucking at
Lozenges, and was largely disgusted on account of the cough. The cough was
intolerable because it causes an intense drawing
sensation in his head on coughing. This key symptom prompted the
prescription of the homeopathic medicine IRIS VERSICOLOR. Another
noteworthy observation was that the patient had an elongated uvula which
was in the shape of a sharp cone with a needle like point and some ropy
saliva was hanging
on it. This is another feature of Iris versicolor (usually prescribed for
burning in the gastro-intestinal tract and headaches with vomiting and

headache free life.
Case - XIII (Who said Dogs do not respond to homeopathy?)
Inky a four year old cocker spaniel developed very
intense uncontrollable itching on the left leg and paw which caused wounds
to form and the fur around it would get shed as she would constantly keep

discomfort to the dog.

licking and aggravating the wound.
