Cured and Clinical Cases

Case - I (Burn injury)

Mrs GM aged 38 presented with keloids post a burn injury when the cooking stove on which she was preparing food burst, upturned , the oil catching fire resulting in burns on her arms and forehead which lead to keloid formation on her left forearm (The scar tissue had hypertrophied) .The keloid 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 - II (warts(verrucae))

An interesting case of warts(verrucae) where a young girl had multiple flat warts on her right foot for two years and one on her right palm, laterally. Total number of warts were 13 in number(a few of them being on the right sole)

She had various treatments without much success. Interestingly she also had a ganglion( Swelling over the right wrist which was not painful).

As a person she was a short tempered girl who wanted her way all the time but felt nervous in anticipation before marriage, examination and interviews.

She was immensely fond of sweets and could eat a dessert at anytime of the day.

A case of Mrs A aged 24 had dry patches of rough, itchy skin in the folds of her elbows and behind her neck and caused tremendous itching on exposure to the sun, even leading to burning of the skin which would get better temporarily by washing with cold water. There was a strong family history of pulmonary tuberculosis in her family with 3 members of her father’s family having suffered from Tuberculosis and being treated for it.

CALTHA PALUTRIS 3X a homeopathic remedy was then prescribed which brought amelioration in her condition, the blisters healed and dried up and after some time there was no reoccurrence of the same.

Case - X (Eosinophilic Bronchitis)

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 blurring of eyes and acidity).

Lycopodium-200 and later Lycopodium IM helped the calculus to pass out and ensure the flow of urine was not obstructed.
