Abstract

EARLY REMISSION OF MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM UNDER HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT: AN OBSERVATION IN 100 CASES

Swami Shraddhamayananda* and Ashok Kumar Pradhan

ABSTRACT

Molluscum contagiosum(MC) is a virus (MCV) belonging to Poxvirus group of DNA viruses, commonly affecting the skin. There are four distinct subtypes of MCV, but mainly MCV 1 is responsible for MC. It is a self limiting disease characterized by classical transparent umbilicated skin lesion, with characteristic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies. As spontaneous resolution takes place within 18 -24 months, and no single conventional treatment is convincingly known to induce early resolution, and also they are more or less painful techniques. So the standard medical advice is to wait for spontaneous resolution. Because of contagious nature, parents become anxious particularly when it spreads to other children. Due to this, parents often feel to treat such cases if there is no danger in the treatment procedures. In our clinic 100 such MC patients were treated with single homeopathic medicine, along with a control group of 10 cases treated only with placebo containing the vehicle of the original medicine. All the patients were followed for 2 years. Out of one hundred cases, 90 cases showed remission within 15 days, and most of the cases cured within 2-3 months. Only single oral medicine (Dulcammara) was used orally without any local application. No remission was noted in the control group within 3 months, and after this little improvement was seen in 4 cases after 6 months, while 2 cases were cured after 18 months. The result of this study was encouraging. It is not only helpful to control the spread of the disease within short time but also indicating a definite role of homeopathic medicine in MC.

Keywords: Molluscum Contagiosum, Dulcammara, Homeopathy.
