Leucoderma - The Polypharmacy Approach

` Calc-p / Cina / Ars-s-f / Tub / Nat-m / Hydrocot / Carb-v / Ferr-p / Nit-ac / Sep.

Editor: Dr Govind Agarwal has a vast experience with over 500 cases to his credit with photographs before and after treatment. Unfortunately the approach is polypharmacy; therefore the reasoning is not clear. To prescribe four remedies at a time is not in conformity with Hahnemannian Homoeopathy. Yet Dr Govind Agarwal has results and so we publish this article. We give here of few of his cases with photographs. Readers can draw their own conclusions. Note that the NJH mainly supports the Classical approach, but a work of this magnitude has to be presented to readers.

Case 1:
Master N, aged 3 years, saw me on 17th Nov 91. 4 months ago, Leucoderma first appeared on the dorsum of left big toe, dorsum of second toe and small toe to the left foot. Recently the spots have come on the right foot and right hand. (see fig la.b).

Other features-
Dark discolouration of the knee and itching all over the body.
Desires-sweet, salt.
Stools 3-4 times a day.
Mind-Haughty & angry.
H/o Injury-sprain of the left big toe on which boils had appeared followed by white spots.
H/o illness-diarrhoes and vomiting since birth. Grinding of teeth and bedwetting recently.
H/o vaccination.

Treatment Plan:

  1. Calc-phos 30 daily
  2. Cina 30 twice a week.
  3. Ars-sul-flav 30 daily.
  4. Tuberculinum 1 M once a week.

Follow up:
4th Dec 92-Coryza, Rhus tox 200 4 hourly.
11th March 92-White spots better.
Loose motions since 7 days.
11th June 92-Better
18th July 92- Significant improvement in left big toe. Dark spots of the knee disappeared.
24th Aug 92-Eruptions with pus on the left hand.
Merc-sol 200 two powders, at interval of 4 days.
4th Sept 92-itching eruptions with boils.
Psorinum 30 once daily for 5 days.
8th Sept 92-Fever with eruptions on chin. Submandibular eruptions on chin. Submandibular glands enlarged. Hepar-sulph 1M 4 powders followed by Baryta-mur 200 2 powders at an interval of three days.
8th Oct 92-Boils on ear lobules and below the lower lips.
Merc-sol 200 two powders
5th Feb 93-Boils cured and spots vanished. (see photo 1c).

Case 2:
Master Veer Singh, aged 10 years saw we on 8th Sept 1989. He had vitiligo spots which appeared below the navel in May 88, followed by spots on the right popliteal fossa, behind the right ear lobe and lastly on the back since three months. (see photo 2a, b). The child could be easily frightened.

Past History-Typhoid in May 1988 followed by epistaxis and then by leucoderma.

Treatment plan-

  1. Nat-mur 30
  2. Carbo-veg 30
  3. Hydrocotyle Q
  4. Tuberculinum 1 M once in 15 days.

14th Feb 90-Spots behind the ear disappeared. Spots on the abdomen and knees disappearing. (See photo 2c).
16th June-Relief. Photograph taken. 22nd Aug 90-No spots on abdomen and legs.
6th Oct 90-Spots on the back became smaller.
12th Feb 91-no presence of any white spots anywhere on the body. Completely cured. (See photo 2d).
The cause may be Typhoid which was suppressed by modern medicines. Here Carbo-veg seems to be responsible for the cure.
Case 3:
Smt K, a 39 years old lady visited me on the 30th of March 1992. She had Leucoderma spots first observed on the lower lip 10 months ago, which later spread to the right mandibular region. (see photo 3a). There was itching over the spots.
She also complained of ghabrahat when hungry and thirsty.
Sleepy (3-) ever since the spots had appeared.
Menstrual complaints: Menses every 20 days, lasting for 2 days Black watery blood. Prolapse of uterus on the first day of flow.
She has 2 children now. A son and a daughter. Six of her children had expired from various diseases. Tubectomy done 12 years ago.

Other Features:

  1. Perspires a lot.
  2. Tingling of both the feet.
  3. Moth spots on the face.

Treatment plan-

  1. Calc-phos 39 tds
  2. Ferrum-phos 30 tds
  3. Nitric-acid 30 tds
  4. Sepia 200 weekly.

3rd June 92 sleep good. No prolapse. ghabrahat when hungry.


  1. Calc-phos 30
  2. Nat sulph 30
  3. Nitric-acid Sepia 200 weekly was started.
  4. 3rd Aug 92 Good relief in the spots. (See photo eb)
  5. 3rd Oct 92-White spots almost cured. (See photo 3c).

Although cure is not on classical Homoeopathic lines, yet cure did occur. Early menses, prolapse during menses, moth spots are all suggestive of Sepia. Grief due to death of children is suggestive ofNat-sulph. Natrum is complementary to Sepia.

Case 4:
Smt C K B, aged 39 years consulted me on the 17th of June 1990 for Leucoderma. The spots began on the right leg and a smaller one on the left leg when she was 11 years of age. At the age of 15 she had a spot on the right cheek and in front of the right ear. (See photo 4a).
