Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a long-term (chronic) pruritic skin condition affecting 15-25% of children, 30% or more it will persist into adulthood. AD is very common, particularly in the developed countries and among people who have a tendency to develop allergies. The Rationale of this case report is to demonstrate the AD associated with psychical complaints in a patient, and better improvement of AD occurs when homoeopathic treatment focuses on psychical symptoms. Here, A 28 year old female diagnosed with AD, presented with complaints of Eczematous lesions on face and genitalia with associated symptoms of sadness and depression for 2 years. Patient was taking allopathic medications for the same, but there was only temporarily relief of the complaints. So, patient approached for homoeopathic intervention for permanent cure. After the detailed case taking, repertorization and final consultation with materia medica, a constitutional medicine Natrum muriaticum 200Cwas prescribed. It showed improvement in all complaints, but there was standstill of all complaints after sometime, this too leads to increase the potency of Natrum muriaticum 1M as per Homoeopathic principles. There was significant improvement in eczematous lesions with all associated complaints, along with marked improvements in SCORAD Index following 06 months of treatment. These findings conclude that AD treated with individualized homeopathy, the cure was achieved.
