A case study of homoeopathic treatment for bullous pemphigoid
Author(s): Dr. Kankana Kalra
Abstract:
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is a widely increasing autoimmune blistering ailment sometimes accompanied by pruritic urticarial plaques. The prevalence of BP increases as the age of the person increases and it is rarely found in people younger than 50 years of age. The incidence of BP every year is approximately 2.4 and 21.7 new cases per million in the population throughout the world. As per the onset, clinical presentation, and factors responsible for triggering disease different variants of BP include classical BP, no bullous BP, exfoliative erythroderma, and infant or childhood BP. Certain triggering diseases and factors in BP include the following psoriasis/phototherapy-induced BP, lichen planus, and drug-induced BP. The treatment for BP includes locally applied corticosteroids depending upon the patient's severity and clinical features, the dosage may range from moderate to high doses. Unlike such conventional medicines, you may not encounter any side effects since the use of homeopathic medicines is very natural and safe. Homeopathy not only treats the symptoms of the patient but also deals with the root cause of the problem so that the patient gets optimal patient satisfaction. Homeopathy is exceedingly useful in diseases related to immune function since it boosts immunity. In this paper, we encounter such a case of immune dysfunction leading to bullous pemphigoid manifestation in a young individual exhibiting a substantial range of signs and symptoms that point towards the best-suited homeopathic remedy after a very thorough case-taking and case evaluation.
