Author(s): Dr. Sini NB
Lichen planus is an autoimmune disease that affects skin and mucus membranes. It affects 1% of the population. The cure for this disease is aimed at reducing pruritis and time of resolution. Complications include scarring of the affected area, transformation to malignancy, and psychological sequelae. This case report shows the role of homoeopathic treatment based on totality of symptoms and efficacy of homoeopathic drugs in fifty millesimal potency. This is a case of a fifty-three-year-old lady affected with lichen planus. The medicine given was Sulphur in 0/3 potency on the basis of repertorisation in Synthesis Repertory using RADAR. The result was analysed using changes in the clinical symptom and general well-being of the patient. The Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) improved from 14 to zero during the treatment. The MONARCH score is +9/13 which shows that there is a positive causal relationship between the Sulphur 0/3 and treatment outcome.
