Author(s): Dr. Partha Pratim Pal
Conditions related to foot mycoses like tinea pedis is the most common superficial infection that represents a public health problem worldwide. Treatment takes considerable amount of time and recurrence of infections affects quality of life. These fungal infections depend on many factors especially lifestyle and environmental and climatic conditions and can be influenced by individual factors such as age and host defenses. Every individual is identified by the minor changes occurring in his/her desires, aversions, thermal reactions, appetite, thirst, excretions, mental state apart from the objective signs (physical symptom). Homeopathy system of medicine tries to obtain a drug from the list of materia medica which covers those changes in an individual in addition to the pathological disease state. Now the difficulty of mastering those voluminous and rapidly increasing symptomologies had naturally led to the demand of development of repertories. Rubric analysis from such repertories often indicates several clinical conditions. This article is an attempt to show such an interpretation which indicates two drugs Silicea and Tuberculinum for tinea pedis and they may be used for treating tinea pedis infection effectively without any external local use of ointment.
