Psoriasis And Lichen Planus - Know Homeopathic Way Of Handling Them!

Psoriasis and Lichen Planus are both autoimmune diseases. These occur when the body’s immune system accidentally attacks healthy cells of the skin. Both the diseases are chronic and inflammatory medical conditions that manifest themselves on your skin, nails, hair, scalp and mucous membranes. Neither psoriasis nor lichen planus is contagious.

How do you know that you have Psoriasis and Lichen Planus?

Psoriasis is a genetic condition. Change in the environment can trigger psoriasis. One must look out for the following symptoms of psoriasis-

• Swathes of unnatural skin on your body
• Small blotches or large patches on the skin
• Pus-filled blisters

On the other hand, the symptoms of Lichen planus usually show up on the skin of the body, genitals or in the mouth. A person with this condition may encounter-

• Severe itching
• Rounded, purple, hardened bumps on the skin

If someone in your family has psoriasis, you could contract lichen planus. A clinical test of the lesions formed on your skin can reveal if you have psoriasis or lichen planus.

How homoeopathy approach the treatment of Psoriasis and Lichen Planus?

Homoeopathy is an eighteenth-century medical science that treats ailments with small doses of natural substances, which in larger doses cause the ailment. Homoeopathy believes that the body has the capacity to heal itself.

• The root cause of psoriasis and lichen planus lies in defects in the autoimmune system. Homoeopathy goes to the source of the problem and tries to rectify the defect. It aims at changing the autoimmune system so that it stops attacking its own cells. This kind of remedy is long-term.

• Before curing the symptoms of psoriasis and lichen planus, homoeopathy attempts to improve a person’s general health in the belief that only a healthy constitution can cure a disease.

• Homoeopathy identifies the reason that leads to the breakout of psoriasis. Another way that homoeopathy can decide which medication is ideal is the location and colour of the eruptions or abnormal skin and under what circumstances the condition is aggravated or allayed.

Many people grow disappointed with conventional medication as the symptoms of psoriasis and lichen planus keep recurring. The efficacy of homoeopathic treatment of psoriasis and lichen planus has been proved scientifically. Moreover, homoeopathic medicines have no side effects. If you feel that homoeopathy is the way to go, then contact a homoeopathic physician as soon as possible.

  2. Guttate psoriasis- appears on the thighs, legs and arms, trunk
  3. Inverse psoriasis- affects the skin under breasts, around genitals, armpit and groin
  4. Pustular psoriasis- affects smaller areas like the fingertips
  5. Erythrodermic psoriasis- most uncommon type of psoriasis covering the entire body

What triggers Psoriasis?
Psoriasis refers to an autoimmune condition. It occurs when the white blood cells (known as ‘T’ cells), instead of attacking and fighting the invading bacteria, attack your skin cells mistakenly.

Other factors triggering this condition includes-

  1. Skin infections or strep throat
  2. Skin injuries
  3. Stress
  4. Alcohol consumption
  5. Smoking
  6. Deficiency of vitamin-D
  7. Certain medications

Psoriasis can also occur as the result of a genetic predisposition.

Symptoms-

  1. Inflamed, red patches on the skin
  2. Dry, flaky skin prone to bleeding
  3. Burning, itching sensation around the patches
  4. Pitted, thick nails
  5. Swollen joints
  6. Slivery scales on the red patches
  7. Soreness

Treating Psoriasis with Homeopathy-
Homeopathy plays a vital role in curing various skin problems including Psoriasis.

  1. It not only palliates the symptoms of the disease but also particularly aims towards rectifying the underlying cause.
  2. Homeopathic medicines are prepared from natural substances and extracts of medicinal plants- bark of spurge olive, potassium sulfate etc. The topical creams soothe your skin, reduce itching and inflammation and rejuvenate your skin naturally.
  3. Homeopathy can work wonders in situations where other conventional methods fail to yield effective results. For instance, certain medications or drugs may result in flare-ups or other adverse effects. But when it comes to Homeopathy, you can rest assured that the remedies are completely safe and long-lasting.

In nearly 90% of all skin disorder cases, Homeopathy has shown remarkable results in treating the condition. So if you are looking for a permanent cure, opt for Homeopathic treatment.

Psoriasis - Best Ways To Get Them Treated!

Psoriasis - Best Ways To Get Them Treated!

Psoriasis is a disorder which is characterized by rapid multiplication of skin cells on the skin’s surface. These extra skin cells develop into silvery scales, which are often dry and itchy. It may also lead to formation of painful red patches on the skin. This disorder might produce symptoms, which flare up and reduce periodically. There is no cure for psoriasis; treatments however can make the symptoms manageable.

Symptoms

The symptoms of psoriasis include red patches on the skin and scaly and dry skin. The red patches might be itchy and one might often experience a burning sensation around the area. The joints in your body may also become stiff and swollen.

Causes

The exact cause of psoriasis has not been ascertained. The accepted theory is that psoriasis occurs when the immune system attacks the healthy skin cells. There is a type of white blood cell called the ‘T cell’, whose function is to combat harmful virus or bacteria in the body. With Psoriasis or any other autoimmune disorder, these T cells start attacking the healthy (skin) cells.

Overactive ‘T Cells’ may trigger other responses in the body, thus, leading to excess production of skin cells and white blood cells. The excess cells move to the skin surface and end up causing the red painful patches.

Treatment options to manage psoriasis

Although there’s no cure for psoriasis as such, the symptoms can be controlled. The treatment options for psoriasis are:

1. Topical treatments: Topical treatments involve application of creams and lotions. They have been mentioned below:

I. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroid creams or lotions reduce the excess skin cell production, thus, reducing inflammation. They are generally not used as a long term treatment as they cause skin thinning.

II. Vitamin D analogues: A synthetic form of Vitamin D, it helps in slowing down skin cell growth.

III. Salicylic acid: This treatment is used to reduce scaling on the skin, caused due to psoriasis. It is usually administered along with other medications.

2. Light therapy: Light therapy involves using sunlight or artificial light to reduce inflammation and scaling. It helps in reducing the activity of T cells in the body.

3. Oral medications

In case of severe symptoms, oral medications are prescribed. Medications such methotrexate helps in reducing the excess production of skin cells. Cyclosporine is a drug that is used to suppress the erroneous immune system response.

As I can analyse your problem but in the homeopathy we have plenty of medicines which used for psoriasis and for that we need to evaluate the whole problem in the psoriasis and it's required consultation. For psoriasis you can apply coconut oil + kapoor + aloe vera to reduce the itching. Try to reduce the doses of allopathic medicine.

Due to vitiation of three dosha, the disease manifest and main line of treatment for psoriasis is panchkarma and internal medicine. It is considering the best approach for skin disorder in ayurveda. A case report of 42-year old male, presented with well demarcated red scaly, silvery patches mainly on both legs, hands, scalp, chest and back with itching, and also nail and joint involvement has been presented in this article.

Etiology of Psoriasis:

Unknown but many factors have been associated-

  1. Genetic: may be autosomal dominant

  2. Triggers: physical trauma, infection and drugs.

  3. Biochemical change: like increase level of arachidonic acid and Cgmp.

  4. Immunological factors: helper T cells PLAY A KEY ROLE.

Epidemiology: 

Roughly, 1% of the population is affected. Can occur at any age and affected both sex. Most patients as worse in winters, around 7 million people are affected in developed country.

Histopathogenesis:

  • Increased epidermal cell proliferation.

  • Retention of nuclei in stratum corneum.

In a patients with psoriasis always check for nail and joint involvement.

  • Nail: 10 to 15% of the patients have nail involvement. Pitting, nail plate thickening, subungual debris, discolouration of nail plate and oil spot seen in the nails.

  • Joints: 10% patients have joint involvement.

Sites: Scalp, pressor points & extensor. Sometimes generalised.

Chronic recurrent psoriasis is difficult to treat. Modern science treat with PUVA and corticosteroids but these drugs having local and systemic side effects like liver and kidney failure etc. So, it is the time to find out the effective and safe treatment for Psoriasis. Medicines which are used in ayurveda are safe and practised since many years. A huge numbers of drugs are prescribed in ayurveda for the treatment of kushta.

Case details: A 42-year old male patient, hindu brahman by religion, presented on 10 april 2016 with well demarcated raised red scaly, silvery patches on chest, back and both legs and hands. He complained of itching all over the body and on scraping, white powder like substances fall down and leaves a bleedy surface. On history, patients had complaints since 20 years and diagnosis of psoriasis by allopathic physician. Since 20 years he has been taking allopathy and homoepathy patients from various practioners of U.P and delhi. He is brahman and lives in well known temple of delhi and visit homes of peoples for religious ceremony. He is afraid that if the disease is spreading continously, then he is unable to work as priest because people neglect him due to disease. The disease is spreading all over his body and also involves nail and joint. Destruction of nail plates of hand and legs was also developed. For this, patients took allopathic treatment for such a long time but do not get relief.

The patients visit our clinic for the first time. He told use that his problem not solves since 20 years and spreading continuously. So, he is unable to trust us. So, we first give him counselling because reassurance and emotional support are invaluable. Physical and mental rest enhance the effects of the treatment. It is also important to tell him that the disease is not contagious and is benign.

SYMPTOMS OF THE PATIENTS :

  • Itching all over body

  • Silvery patches, especially, on legs, chest, back but now spreading in his hand and scalp.

  • Destruction on nail plates

  • Swelling and pain in left middle fingers and flexor deformity in proximal interphalangeal joint

  • Swelling in right middle metatarso phangeal joint and pain

Some blood test of the patients were done like CBC, LFT, KFT, SR, URIC ACID to assess outcome.

His general health was good and both physical and all blood test were within the normal limts. We advise patients for panchkarma and oral medication but patients refuse for panchkarma so we start his oral or internal medication.

Investigation Done :

  • CBC(Complete Blood Count)

  • LFT(Liver Function Test)

  • KFT(Kidney function Test)

  • Sr. Uric Acid

Investigation was done to rule out any other pathology. Investigation were within normal limit.

Internal Medication :

Medication are given into two phase. In First Phase, we are given panchsakara churna - one spoon two times daily for anulomana and pachan, Panchnimba churna- one spoon two times daily with luke water, panchtikta ghrita gugulu - two tab two times daily, and one oil for local application containing jyotishmati,bakuchi, and chakramad for five days. We told patient to apply the oil firstly only on legs for 5 days. Patient taking the same for 5 days and come on 5th day, we see the fabulous result, the rashes which are developed within 4 to 5 months just disappear and other rashes are also subsiding.

After 5 days, in second phase, we continue the same treatment and also added haridra khand - one spoon two times daily, gugulu tiktam kashaya - three spoon two times daily (one hour before food for 15 days). The patient came back on 20th day, with great result, the rashes were almost 60 % subsiding and pain and swelling in finger and ankle also reduce to great extent. Now, patient is not taking any pain killer for pain. Patient also get improvement in nails of legs.

We prescribe the same medicine for one month that time and ask him to do some physiotherapy additional for finger deformity. After that patient came with 70 to 75 % relief in symptoms and patients also tell that during the treatment, he will not develop any additional rashes.

During the treatment, we also told the patients to follow some dietary changes and live according to the rules of Ayurveda.

Result: Psoriasis is a disease with unkown etiology and triggered by many factors. In modern science, treatment of psoriasis is a challenge. They do not have any safe and proper medicine for psoriasis. But, ayurveda treatment gives satisfactory results as well as the quality life to the patients. Ayurveda removes toxin out of the body and corrects the formation of aama. Ayurveda gives the prevention as well as the treatment. So, by following the dietary and lifestyle change we prevent the reoccurrence of the disease.
