The 9-year-old son of the practitioner had a fungal infection that looked like dandruff all over his scalp, extending down to the neck (see pic).
It was often itchy. Each time either parent combed his hair, dandruff-like white particles would fall off. He also had large white spots on the right and back side of the neck and on top of the head. All the symptoms had started three years ago. During this period he consulted several reputed dermatologists. Laboratory tests of samples scraped from his scalp did not reveal any medical diagnosis. Various allopathic medicines did not bring any improvement. The child had trouble doing his school assignments and had no self-confidence. It was thought the child was under the spell of some black magic which was prevalent in the place where he lived.
On 3 August 2018, allopathic medications were discontinued and the following were given:
#1. CC11.2 Hair problems + CC15.2 Psychiatric disorders + CC21.7 Fungus…TDS in coconut oil and then mixed with vibhuti for external application
#2. CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + #1...QDS
After three weeks, there was 50% reduction in the white particles on the scalp, but no change in the white spots. After another 2 weeks on 8 September 2018, sensing that the healing process had slowed down, the practitioner enhanced #1 & #2 as follows:
#3. CC11.1 Hair tonic + CC17.2 Cleansing + CC21.2 Skin infections + CC21.3 Skin allergies + #1…TDS for external application
#4. CC17.3 Brain & Memory tonic + #3...QDS
After 6 weeks, the white spots as well as the white particles completely disappeared (see pic). There was no more itching. His learning capacity and memory power to retain his lessons improved tremendously. He was happily doing homework assignments. The dosage of #3 was reduced to OD for 6 weeks and stopped. The dosage of #4 was reduced to TDS for a month followed by OD for two weeks and then to OW. As of December 2018, the boy is free of all his symptoms.
