In Dr. Chintan Mehta I could find one of the best homeopathy doctor in Mumbai for anxiety treatment. With severe panic attacks and anxieties I had visited Dr. Mehta’s Standard Homeopathy Clinic in Andheri west. I used to feel severe tightness and claustrophobia. Palpitations caused excessive panic and fear. I consulted Dr. Mehta in person in his clinic in Andheri. After his treatment for anxiety I have significantly improved. Besides his medicines, I could sense a genuine desire in the doctor to treat and cure his patients from the roots. His experience in the field became obvious when we consulted him and during the follow us. He guided us with the required investigations also. Initially when I was not feeling any significant improvement I became worried. But he inspired hope in me. This helped me to stay with the treatment. And the medicines have worked. My anxieties and panic attacks have improved. My faith in homeopathy, medicines and doctors prevailed. Highly recommended to anyone in search of a good homeopathy doctor for anxiety treatment.

Got immense benefit in my skin allery and itching after homeopathic treatment taken from Dr. Chintan Mehta in his clinic in Andheri. Found an expert homeopathy doctor in Andheri in Dr. Mehta. I had severe itching and cracks on my soles since many years. Tried various treatments for the same from different doctors of different systems. Some diagnosed it as psoriasis and some said it was eczema. All failed to give any lasting relief. When I started Dr.Mehta’s homeopathic treatment initially I didn’t improve much. He had taken my case history at his Standard Homeopathy Clinic in Andheri very nicely and in detail. So thought to give it a proper chance. After few months of treatment started feeling the improvement in itching in the soles. The cracks on the feet due to psoriasis or eczema have disappeared completely. The itching is almost gone. I also had a problem of allergic cold. Even this has shown improvement. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.

Lichen planus cured. I was having severe skin itching due to lichen planus. I consulted Dr Mehta in his homeopathic clinic in Andheri Mumbai for lichen planus treatment. Large thick patches of discoloured skin on my both wrists, hands, knees, feet, ankle were present. Entire back was covered with tiny spots. I was facing terrible itching and not to forget the social embarrassment, the later being more troublesome than the former. Was applying few creams and taking allopathic medicine but with little relief. I wanted a cure for the problem and not without side-efects. That is when I met Dr. Mehta at standard homeopathy clinic in andheri for lichen planus. The problem was chronic and I was new to homeopathy. Dr. Mehta took my entire history which initially was a little amusing to me. I didn’t understand the connection between the questions and my skin itching and lichen planus. But I pursued it and gave the answers as best as I could. As the interview progressed I could connect and sense that I am going to get a holistic outlook to my case here. He asked me about my nature, emotions, stress and gave me some homeopathic medicines for lichen planus. Really some very little medicines. Couldn’t believe it will have an effect. Took it and was almost 30% better in first 3 weeks. He was seeing me in follow up every month. Today I can safely say am much better in my lichen planus symptoms. The back lesions have gone. The thick marks on hands and wrists have faded and there is no itching there. There is almost 80% improvement in my lichen planus. I as a person am feeling better. I could find in Dr. Mehta not just a very good homeopathy doctor for lichen planus in Mumbai for my case but also as a holistic healer. Really thankful.

What is the cause of lichen planus

In medical literature, the exact cause of this skin disease is not known. As per research, the causes known to dermatologists and homeopathic skin specialists are: –

Autoimmune skin disease – Here, your body’s immunity acts against your skin cells. So it is called an ‘auto-immune’ disease.

Stress in life – Stress is a common cause. Inability to resolve emotional issues can reflect on the skin in the form of this disease. 

Genetic cause – Certain genes in your body can predispose it to get LP lesions. Whenever there is a stress, these genes activate and you get symptoms.

Medicines – Allopathic medicines can trigger skin rash and itch. Medicines used to treat high blood pressure, depression, fever, pain, etc can act as triggers. Give the list of medicines you are taking to the skin specialist.

Hepatitis C – It is a viral infection of the liver.

Skin injury – Injury or scratch can trigger itch and scaling.

Metal allergy – Wearing ornaments of gold, nickel, copper, etc can trigger itching and thick skin.

Cream for lichen planus treatment

Patients buy creams instead of searching a specialist or a homeopathy doctor for lichen planus treatment. At Dr. Mehta’s clinic, we believe that using creams is not a permanent solution to treat this disease.

Why the itch and rash recurs after creams

In this skin disease, your immunity is the main problem. Cream or an ointment will not correct this root cause. Hence the rash and itch keep coming once you stop using the creams.  

Most of the ointments are steroid based. This isn’t healthy in the long run and can have serious side effects. 

So it is best to go for customized homeopathic medicines.

Effect of homeopathic medicines on lichen planus

Homeopathic medicines have proved very effective in treating lichen planus. Symptoms like itching & thick dark skin can disappear with homeopathic remedies. The effect and duration of therapy will depend on several factors –

  1. What data is available to the treating homeopath?
  2. Where are the lesions? Lesions on the genitals are stubborn and take more time to heal. Oral lesions take more time than skin lesions to heal.
  3. Have you taken steroids and for how long? Steroids can suppress your illness for the time being. The rashes may emerge once you stop using it.
  4. In how many areas of the skin were the dark spots present?
  5. For how long have the symptoms been? The more long-lasting the symptoms are, the longer it takes for medicines to cure.
