Her Diagnosis was Seborrheic Dermatitis with Alopecia.
Her associated complaints were that of bed wetting in the night as well as day time, and occasional itching in the anal region.
She had an inordinate desire for ice and cold drinks, bananas and milk while she disliked sweets.
Her birth history was uneventful with normal milestones except for the fact that she learnt to talk late.
Though being a stubborn kid, she would mix up easily with others. She feared darkness.
After Careful assessment of the Case, she was prescribed Phosphorous .
Within 2 months of regular treatment she was already showing improvement.
She suffered a few relapses in the last couple of months; though with regular homoeopathic treatment her complaints started improving well. She regained her hair growth within 6 months time. Her skin complaints were much better with no relapses whatsoever.
