Author(s): Abhinandan Das, Tanmay Sarkar, Abhisake Sabud and Tanmoy Sarkar
Abstract:
Objective: Tinea versicolor, also known as Pityriasis versicolor, is a common, non-painful, non-contagious, benign, superficial fungal infection of the skin. Pityriasis versicolor is caused by Malassezia globose also known as Pityrosporum. P.V affected skin seborrheic areas like, trunk, neck, and/or arms. P.V. is not properly cured in conservative treatment, whereas in homoeopathy lots of probabilities to cure are lurking up & prime objective is to cure P.V. with IHM. This case report is helpful for contributing to the scientific literature on PV for exploring more.
Method: We collect symptoms before & after treatment of patient. The patient’s symptoms have been perceived & Scored by the “Dermatology life quality index”. We also followed the “Modified Naranjo Criteria Score (Monarch)” for medicinal aggravation.
Results: Tinea versicolor with lesions over chest, trunk & arms with intensive itching and soreness was treated with the individually selected homoeopathic medicine Nat. Mur 0/2 to 0/12 potency. The outcome was measured by changes in clinical presentation along with improvement in general well-being. The dermatology life quality index Score (DLQI) improved from 24 to 0 during treatment. Monarch score of +9/13 indicates a positive result between Homoeopathic intervention & Clinical outcome.
Conclusion: Homoeopathy is a specialized system of medicine that treats the patient as a whole and not just the disease. This case report shows a positive effect of treatment with individualized homeopathic medicine in managing the case of Pityriasis Versicolor for adults.
