Many dermatological diseases do not have definitive cures and the available treatments sometimes have serious potential side-effects. Patients can therefore suffer from these disorders for many years, with corresponding effects on their quality of life over this period. These are some of the reasons why patients turn to Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is by nature a therapeutic system that is individualized and based on the psyche of the individual. This is in line with evidence from regular dermatologic practice that suggests that many chronic dermatitis have an underlying psychosomatic basis.
The literature suggests homeopathy’s efficacy in the therapy of dermatological diseases is growing and includes research, which suggest its usefulness for acne,atopic dermatitis,lichen planus, cutaneous lymphoma, psoriasis, rosacea, and dermatitis herpetiformis,amongst others.
The special characteristic of homeopathic medicines of not having molecules in them makes them attractive for use in pregnancy, as teratogenicity is not likely to be a significant issue.
Allergy and toxicity are also not to be expected with the use of homeopathic medicines. However, following the use of homeopathic remedies, especially individualised treatments, there may be an initial aggravation, followed by an amelioration. Patients need to know this, as it an important sign of a correctly selected remedy, but may be a source of anxiety for the patients.
Usually, following the application of properly selected homeopathic treatments there is a tendency to permanent remission.
