Author(s): Gobind Narayan Gupta, Ajay Kumar Yadav and Monika
Sebaceous cysts are typical, non-cancerous cysts of the skin. These cysts are unusual bodily growths that may contain liquid or semiliquid substances, even though they can occur anywhere on the body except the palms and soles.
A patient suffering from painful cystic swelling for 4-5 years is presented. After case analysis and evaluation, totality was constructed and after repertorisation, the most appropriate one Sulphur 0/1 was prescribed. Alongside medication, the regular dressing was done with Calendula Q and normal saline. A proper follow-up record was maintained and given accordingly. The treatment was continued for 8-10 weeks and the cystic swelling was completely healed at end of the treatment.
In this case study, homoeopathic treatment is recommended as a viable supplemental or alternative therapy, highlighting the importance of repertorization in customised homoeopathic prescriptions.
