A 39 year old male consulted for treatment of psoriasis after taking endless treatment for his illness. The patient visited our clinic on 14th November 2018.
His illness dates back to 2012 when he started to develop  dandruff on his scalp. At that time stress level was very high as his job profile which required regular travelling and long working hours. As the stress increased so also his disease. He took various treatment but there was no permanent relief for his illness. Now the affected areas are face scalp and behind both ears.  Color of affected was reddish black with white scaling. There was mild itching also present.
He even complained of recurrent episodes of cold and cough at every change of weather.
Homoeopathic  system of medicine being holistic in nature requires in depth understanding of the person.  So on further understanding the person we could see his perfectionist attitude and ambitious nature (as he left his well paid job and started his own business). He was even anxious about his heath.
After taking the case in depth a constitutional  homoeopathic remedy was selected. Along with the medicine patient was asked to take some general precaution such as applying coconut oil regularly to keep the area moisturized and washing the scalp on alternate days. So when the patient visited the next time there was marked difference seen on his areas affected.
