Troubled with urticaria for five years, this young lady finally resorted to homeopathy.
She had taken all kind of treatments - allopathic, homeopathy, ayurvedic - but 24-year-old electronic engineer Aditi Aryan (name changed) got no relief from her chronic urticaria.
She had urticaria since she was five years old and it had disappeared on its own for some time in between, only to come back again with a vengeance. Since the last one year, she was developing rashes every single day and it would be all over her body. Large, swollen, raised wheals with intense redness and itching would occur all over her body. Her condition would get worse on consuming sour food and cheese, though it would occur even if she did not take these. She was on allopathic and ayurvedic treatment when she reported to us.
She had not suffered from any other major illness in her life so far and family history included asthma and leucoderma in her paternal grandmother.
General features such as appetite, thirst, sweat, stools, urine and menses were normal. She was fond of junk food (which she had stopped since it worsened her urticaria) and was extremely fond of sweets, chocolates, ice creams, coffee and fruits. She was averse to eggplant and bitter gourd. Her sleep was not refreshing and she would wake up feeling tired in the morning. She would not be very comfortable in the cold climate.
Her work place situation was uneventful everything else was fine but there was a lot of stress at home. Her parents did not get along well and frequent fights between them would disturb her immensely. She would constantly try to find ways to prevent fights between them or to resolve the same.
Being reserved by nature, she would not mingle easily with people. She would think a lot and keep her thoughts to herself. She was emotionally close to one man, whom she was going to marry very soon, she said. She would try to control her temper when angry but if things stretched too far, she would get verbal about it and shout at the opposite person.
She was fond of music and travelling.
The consulting doctor at Dr Batra's™ prescribed constitutional treatment for her complaints of urticaria. Initially, her allergy was not better to the desired extent, but gradually, she improved very well.
Earlier, she was taking Allegra tablets daily for her urticaria, but that did not give her complete freedom from the rashes. However, after continued homeopathic treatment, she was able to taper and stop Allegra completely. She stopped getting the rashes and itching, and she was glad she could break free from her condition with the help of correct treatment at Dr Batra's™.
