Recurrence of LP this time do so frequent 3 days of prednisone within 3-4 months didn't suppress the allergy. Just the spreading and itch is bothersome. It hasn’t effected anything else.

2. When did this problem begin? What happened in your life around that time? What do you think caused it?

What does it make you do to try to feel better?

Dear helpwith lp

Your condition indicates excess
Pitta dosha (fire) in you.

Extended steroids are never good for the body.

Ayurveda can help heal you completely not only from lichen planus but whatever else afflicts you physically and emotionally.

I will prescribe if you want. First check your prakriti at holisticonline.Com under ayurveda section.

Excess pitta means you are angry and irritable and seek cold food and drinks.

Sorry, I have tried Ayurveda for 2 years before but with no results. I wanted to follow homeopathy 100% this time. It's my last resort. Thank you for your concern.

Take sulphur 200c..4 pills as one dose in the morning, for 3 days only.

Make sure that there are no odors on you (perfumes etc), around you (room fresheners/Dhoom sticks/ camphor fumes etc), and in your mouth while taking the medicine.

Use for three days only..report after a week. You will need Calc.carb 200c, lycopodium 200c for later use. If it is convenient, you can order the three medicines together.

Don't use any product containing camphor. Read labels. Use coconut oil extensively on affected areas. No other medicines whatsoever, during the treatment.

Upload photos every week to my mail address. It takes time to see changes. You have to be patient.

Thank you Mr.Murthy garu. Will report a weeks after I start taking the medicine.

Dear Mr. Murthy, today is the day 7 after taking Sulphur for 3 days. I have tiny bumps covered the entire area of the inner arms. Bumps at my lower back above the hips, abdomen, thighs knees and shin area. Bumps on abdomen are bit itchy. But too much itch on the shin of both the legs. Emailed a few pics but unable to get all the bumps covered in the pictures. Please advise the next step to be taken.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
I didn't get the email. Please resend the pictures.

Did you find any difference? If so, what is it?

Whenever you report, please mention the difference you feel.

Murthy
 
gavinimurthy 3 years ago
Plz confirm if you got the pics now. I emailed them. The first three days while taking the course itching wasn't bad. But last 4-5 days itching was so bad esp shin area. I have marks left from scratching and new dark bumps in the shin. Dark flat bumps are seen on knees and back of knees. Applied coconut oil twice a day and whenever there is itching.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
I got the mail.

Repeat sulphur ..only one dose..wait for a week.

Apply coconut oil daily, even if there is no itch.

Report after a week.
 
gavinimurthy 3 years ago
One dose means one day 4 pills. Kindly confirm.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
Yes..only one day.
 
gavinimurthy 3 years ago
Thank you will report in a week.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
Took the dose Sir. Bumps increased more this week. Itching is not bad as before but still there a little bit. Bumps on the lower back at the hips, on and behind knees are turning black. I feel worried will the number of bumps on my body. Please advise.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
These skin problems, which were there since a long time, take time to get cured. A rough estimate is one month of treatment for every year, you had the problem..some times even more.

So, you have to be patient.

What improvements did you find with sulphur so far?

Any aggravation ( increase of symptoms) you felt, after taking the medicine?

Did you get any troublesome new symptoms?

Did any of your problems come back?
[message edited by gavinimurthy on Mon, 14 Nov 2016 00:13:13 UTC]
 
gavinimurthy 3 years ago
No new Symptoms. Itch increased. More bumps. Too many appeared the last two weeks. No other problems have come back.
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
We have to wait for one more week to see if it is medicinal aggravation.

In homeopathy, the symptoms are likely to be aggravated at first, which is a good sign.

Please wait for one more week, without any medicine.

Report after a week.

Murthy
 
gavinimurthy 3 years ago
Ok Sir. Will report after a week. Thank you very much
 
HelpwithLP 3 years ago
Dear Mr Murthy,

Well the itching is not bad except on cold days and when skin is dry. Bumps are every where- lower back, abdomen, naval, inner arms. They appeared in big number 2-3 days after the dose. After that appeArance of new bumps slowed down, with few new ones everyday.
No other problems came back

I will mail pics soon. Please advise. Thank you

Do you have these tiny bumps earlier too? It seems to me the worst patches have reduced..and these bumps look prominent now.

Give your assessment honestly.

Did you find any improvement overall? Tell in terms of percentage.

How is the itch now? Again give how much less in terms of percentage.

How is your confidence level? Do you feel this treatment is helping?

Honest feedback is important. Don't hesitate to let your true inner feelings come out.
