A 6 year old male child was infested with lice and contracted it from his elder sister. His complaints started 6 months back. He had intense itching and scratching which was followed by formation of red blisters and sore eruptions at the site of scratches. The over the counter medications for lice were not helping him at all.
Homeopathic remedy Ledum Pal was prescribed along with an application of carbolic acid. He responded to the treatment within 2 weeks, and the lice were reducing in number considerably.
