N.M CHOUDHARY

It is a remedy par excellence in psoriasis and in ichthyosis. The most significant symptom is marked exfoliation of skin in large scales which leaves raw, bleeding surface underneath. The strumous or psoric diathesis on conduction with Arsenic symptoms should always be an invaluable guide in the selection of the remedy.

I prescribed Arsenic as the first remedy as all the symptoms were similar with it,  but it didn’t help him at all. Then after seeing repertory chart and reading ARS IOD. it was an exact match. Hence it covered his symptoms and lead to improvement in his condition
