Author(s): Dr. Jaimala Yadav, Dr. Shalini Singh, Dr. Tatheer Fatima and Dr. Reeti Pathak
Abstract:
Introduction: Cutaneous warts are benign proliferation of keratinocytes due to infection by human papilloma virus (HPV) at the site of minimal skin injury. At least 15 distinct subtypes of more than 200 HPV genotypes discovered so far have been linked to cutaneous warts. (1) In homoeopathy, the approach to treating cutaneous warts is holistic and individualised. Homoeopaths consider not only the physical symptoms but also the mental, emotional, and genetic aspects of the person. Thuja occidentalis is a commonly used homeopathic remedy for treating cutaneous (skin) warts. It is particularly indicated for warts that are large, jagged, or cauliflower-like in appearance. It is also used for warts that bleed easily. In homeopathy, the choice of Thuja for treating warts is based on the principle of "like cures like," where a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person.
Case Series Summary: Three cases of cutaneous warts, treated with Homoeopathic medicine Thuja occidentalis, are reported. The cases presented with cutaneous warts over the face with no other peculiar symptom. Due to the scarcity of symptoms, all the three cases were treated as ‘one-sided’ disease. The patients were treated with a single dose of Thuja in 30C potency. Follow-up of these cases was done at regular intervals and clinical assessment was done by checking the size of warts, and associated complaints. The patients showed marked improvement within a month of treatment and were completely cured within a period of 3 months.
