IV, a 3-year-old female child came from Mumbai for the treatment of white spots on cheeks, hands, and back which used to itch. First, her mother thought it was due to calcium deficiency. Even after taking calcium-rich diet, applied moisturizer cream but these spots continued to progress. On doctor's consultation, it was diagnosed as Pityriasis alba. So she came to HomoeoCARE for her daughter's treatment.
What is Pityriasis alba, its causes, and treatment
Pityriasis alba is a noncontagious common skin disorder. It appears as dry, fine scaly, pale round or oval patches on the skin, especially on cheeks. Common treatment includes a local application of moisturizer creams, topical steroidal creams and in extreme cases photo chemotherapy.
Homeopathic treatment of Pityriasis alba
Pityriasis alba is dry, itchy, hypo-pigmented round or oval spots on the skin. Mostly Pityriasis alba disappear on its own. Treatment is required when this self-limiting skin disease doesn't resolve even after several months. Applying topical steroids for long can damage skin more. But we at HomoeoCARE improve the immunity of the person which helps in fighting the infection. Within 5 months of homeopathic treatment for Pityriasis alba, all white fungal patches disappeared and never came back.
