Abstract

EFFECTIVENESS OF THE KENT’S REPERTORY OF THE HOMOEOPATHIC MATERIA MEDICA IN THE TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DERMATOSIS

Dr. Harpreet Kaur*, Dr. Ravinder Singh and Dr. Preeti Meena

ABSTRACT

Background: Chronic dermatosis is any disorder involving lesions or eruptions of the skin. These are conditions affecting, skin, nails, hair and glands.[1] It is a non-specific term and is used to denote almost every kind of lesion prevailing for sometime upon the skin. The disorders of the skin, unlike other diseases, are not only in themselves tormenting to the patient by their presence but the other and the more important side of the coin is their cosmetic implications. The easy visibility upon the surface makes it a social taboo, which harms the patient at a much deeper level, producing a number of psychological disturbances as lack of confidence, loss of socialization, loss of interest in work, depression, anxiety, hopelessness etc. Such patients in a hurry, to get to of their complaints adopt the most hazardous mode of treatment offered by the modern medicine by application of ointments, lazer removal of lesions, cauterization, surgical excision, etc., which only acts to add fuel to the fire. Such a treatment leads to a quick but temporary relief, as afterwards either the lesion become recurrent or the patient goes on to develop some more severe disease which now affects the vital organs, increasing the suffering of the patient and is much more difficult to treat. Aim: To show the effectiveness of Kent’s Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica[2] in treatment of Chronic Dermatosis. Methods: This is a prospective study which was carried out in the O.P.D. and I.P.D. of Mahesh Bhattacharyya Homoeopathic Medical College & Hospital, Howrah. This study was done on 30 patients of skin diseases chosen randomly, a well selected homoeopathic remedy was administered internally and Kent’s Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica[2] was consulted for assistance in medicine selection, all the cases were repertorised using the same and final selection of medicine was done after consulting Materia Medica.[3,4,5,6] Results: The results were very encouraging. Out of the 30 patients in the study 30% of the patients were completely free of their skin lesions and were better both on mental and physical plane. 66.66% patient in study showed marked improvement in the skin lesions until their last follow up. They were physically and mentally well but the skin lesion did not disappear completely till the last follow up. 3.34% of the patients under study shows aggravation in the skin lesion.

Keywords: Repertory, chronic dermatosis, skin, Materia Medica, internal application.
