Author(s): Shamsah Jamal and PR Sisir
Abstract:
Asthma is a significant non-communicable illness imposing a substantial burden on the health system globally. Approximately 300 million people worldwide have asthma, and it's anticipated that another 100 million will have it by 2025. Being the most prevalent chronic illness in children, asthma is a major reason for missed school days, sleep disturbances, and activity limitations. It is a significant health problem in developing countries like India. Information on the prevalence of childhood asthma in India's rural areas is still lacking. Hence, the objective of this retrospective study is to observe the trends in the prevalence of childhood Bronchial Asthma in Kanyakumari District, Tamilnadu and to find out the most commonly indicated homoeopathic remedy for childhood asthma. A retrospective observational study was done on 44 cases of childhood asthma taken between January and December 2021 from the Out-Patient Department of Sarada Krishna Homoeopathic Medical College. This study concluded that children above 10 years are more prone to develop Bronchial Asthma and the most commonly indicated medicine is Arsenicum album, and the most frequently used potency is 0/6.
