The Progress of Ringworm and Homeopathic Treatment in The Case With Lachesis Structure

Dermatophytoses are chronic fungal infections of the skin, hair and nails, mainly caused by dermatophytes of the genus Microsporum, with zoonotic (or reverse zoonotic) potential in animals and humans.
Among dermatophytoses, the most common infections in cats and dogs are those caused by Microsporum genus fungi. Especially cats have an important role in the transmission and spread of Microsporum canis species. 90% of skin mycoses in cats and 50% of skin mycoses in dogs are caused by M.canis. The latent course of M. canis infection in densely hairy and clinically healthy animals, especially cats, is the most important factor in transmission. This is more common than clinical infection. Animal owners, animal caregivers, pet shops, animal shelters, zoos, veterinarians, farmers and especially children and those who have close contact with animals, especially cats, are at risk. Animals transmit the disease by rubbing against each other, through hair and skin rashes. In addition, shaving without following hygiene rules is one of the most important factors in transmission.

In this disease, there are round or oval (ringworm) itchy, dandruffy superficial lesions on the skin, especially when the hair breaks 3-5 mm above the skin surface.
In humans, ring-shaped lesions similar to those seen in animals are seen on the neck, nape, cheeks and hands. In addition, single or multiple round, oval lesions ranging from the size of a lentil to the size of a coin can be seen on the scalp (Tinea capitis).

A 50y female, kitten patient was admitted to our clinic with ringworm transmitted from a cat. The lesions first appeared on the left upper leg, then on the right upper leg, the inner part of the left forearm, then the right forearm, both knees, then the left knee and the left ankle. All lesions except the ankle were symmetrical and itchy. There were yellow sticky discharges after a while from the borders of the round red lesions with pale center.

The case was previously seen in our clinic with a diagnosis of migraine with C-shaped zigzagged aura, and was successfully treated with LACHESIS C200, which was the only remedy in the PQRS finding ‘a hot air blows just below the left knee’ rubric, which emerged after TUBERCULINUM C200, which was given based on his clinical history starting with neck abscesses after tuberculosis vaccination when he was 9 months old. The development of the ringworm lesions of the case, starting from the left and moving to the right with a sticky yellow discharge, still pointed to LACHESIS. The case was treated with LACHESIS C30 and the lesions disappeared within 1 month and there was no discoloration of the skin.

It has been seen that when we understand the structural well, if we take the details well in every discomfort we will encounter in the case, we still need structural and the treatment can be successfully treated with structural.
