He works as a salesman in an exclusive cloth shop. He’s extremely anxious about his illness. He says that customers ask him what is this, what happened on your head. Even in summer he used to cover his head and body to mask his appearance. He angers easily and has great gloominess about his disease. He explored many specialists with many ointments and therapies but the condition usually gets suppressed and after some time, erupts again. Cannot bear summer and extreme cold. It triggers intense itching with shedding of flakes.
When he came to my hospital I asked him to show me the problem. He was a bit reluctant, but when he removed his clothes, a huge amount of flakes fell over the floor. He said this is the reason why he is so tense and cannot go to a relatives or friends place, because it smells very bad too. He always has to cover is head due to the flakes and odor.
HI is married and has one daughter. He is terrified due to his suffering and does not allow his daughter to come near, thinking she might suffer the same fate. He does not have good relations with his wife due to his trouble. He was very depressed. His wife said he does not talk much with her or the daughter. He said “do not come near to me, I do not want to live anymore.”
His father is also suffering from the same disease and is in very a bad condition, at home for years as no one gives him a job due to his condition. He wonders how he will take care of his family and feels something evil is in this house. “I alone have to earn bread for my family.” His wife feels scared that he may go into madness.
Wife: One day we have to go for family function but he refused, said he will remain at home. When we returned we saw he was not in his room and found him over the roof lying unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital and survived having drunk mosquito repellent.
