This patient is a 38 year old male who has had pustular psoriasis (Homeopathy Treatment for Psoriasis) (leg, arms, back) for the last 8 years.
Doctor: Anything bothering you in your routine life which is quite continuous in your mind?
Patient: No, I have to do work. I am very much focused on my work and there is no compromise for targets. I do whatever is needed. I really don’t want to get distracted I have to keep my speed at my pace.
Doctor: Why ?
Patient: I want to do something great for my family. I know my capacity and knowledge I want to utilize it fully and I know where and how to apply it.
Doctor: Is it for money matters or financial security?
Patient: Yes, Money is important for my business but I am not doing anything wrong for success. I never misused my position or my power. I never go beyond my morals it’s my dedication to work and I am doing only that
ethically balanced by my morals.
If I get aggressive on my employees, I later make them comfortable and I understand their needs, which makes them smile again.
Doctor : How is sleep ?
Patient : there are many sleepless nights but it doesn’t affect my routine work. I do my planning at night and make points in my diary. It’s important for my business
Doctor: Anything else you want to share ?
Doctor : These scales and patches everywhere on your body, what you feel about this?
Patient : Oh I am really least bothered about all these things. I hardly get time for my meals and sleep (he paused here, like he was thinking )….Sometimes I feel I am not the same person I used to be. Maybe I am more black than previously. I really don’t give it any thought but I feel maybe I did wrong myself. It’s my mistake. I have to take care myself for this. I am responsible for all these rashes

Case analysis: The patient is a workaholic by nature and wants to continue work without any rest. We can see he is ambitious and sort of obsessive also. As he forgets to take treatment, we can find frivolousness and indifference to one’s own health, but he feels it’s his mistake and he is not blaming anyone for it. In the work environment he is following his ethics and wants to achieve something through constant struggle. He has the delusion he is poor so he makes lots of efforts to overcome that.
We can see positivity and hopefulness there. He is often theorizing, making plans for business, writing in his diary.
DD: Nux Vomica was coming up while case taking. Common rubric ; business talk of, anxiety business of, fastidious, passionate, ambitious. But we have to differentiate it with the help of the patient’s conversation. This patient was taking care of others and guiding himself with his personal ethics. He was the philosopher.
There is constant effort and struggle to be someone, to earn respect. The struggle is for ego and honour. In the Sulphur patient, there is desire for business, desire to make money and to be financially sound. They become indifferent to their appearance or, they make a lot of effort to appear clean. The patient feels he is expected to be good in relationships and they are caring. (reference: Soul of Remedies Dr. Rajan Sankaran).
