Author(s): Dr. Shrishail Mahadevappa Murgod
Abstract: Homoeopathic cure is based on law of similars, and selection of remedy is based on constitutional approach in management of any disease. Where the modern system of medicines makes the usage of external application like ointments, fungicides etc., in treatment of any skin infections like ring worm or tinea corporis infection, which leads to suppression or palliation. So the disease tends to recur often and becomes a chronic disease. Removal of local symptoms of the local direction by external application leads to rousing up the internal disease and the other symptoms that previously existed in a latent state side by side with the local affection. So there is a wide scope for proper management and treatment of Tinea corporis in Homoeopathy. As in our system of medicine we do not treat the disease but we treat the individual who is suffering. Through individualization with constitutional remedy (Approach) we can treat both acute as well as the chronic phase of disease, to prevent further recurrence and complications of the disease.
