Study of Cases of Dermal Allergies by BBCR Repertory with the Help of RADAR Software
Abstract: Current scenario of polluted environment and disturbed lifestyle has led to an increase in the number of cases of dermal/ skin allergies. To treat the same, anti allergic drugs are not able to provide a permanent cure. Hence, I conducted a study to identify the efficacy of Homoeopathy in the treatment of dermal allergies. For analysing, evaluating, repertorizing and finally selecting the remedies, I choose Boger Boenninghausen’s Characteristic Repertory (BBCR) through R. A. D. A. R 2.2.16 software. The dermal allergies considered for my study were classified under 4 types ie. Urticaria, Contact Dermatitis, Drug Allergy and Atopic Dermatitis. These included Type I and Type IV hypersensitivity reactions. For the purpose of this study, I excluded Type II and Type III hypersensitivity reactions as they involve systemic diseases which is the basic exclusion criteria for my study. Results were compared on various parameters like DQLI (Dermatological Quality of Life Index), IgE levels, AEC (Absolute Eosinophil Count), Pruritus 5-D Scale, Itch (VAS-Scale), Burning (VAS- Scale), Pain (VAS- Scale). Considering all the parameters, out of 50 cases, 18 % showed marked improvement, 32 % moderate improvement, 36 % mild improvement, 2 % had no change, 8 % got worse and 4 % dropped out. The findings of the above study concluded that 86 % of the cases responded to the indicated homoeopathy similimum by using BBCR through RADAR. This study also proved the utility of BBCR using RADAR in cases of dermal allergies.
