Case Report


Introduction: Tinea corporis (TC) is the most common superficial fungal infection of the skin that invades and grows in dead keratin. The topical treatment causes suppression of TC and with the effect of it, a repeated episode of relapse occurs, which hampers the quality of life of the patient. Case Summary: This case of TC, with extensive spread on the body, demonstrates the curative effect of homoeopathic medicine with minimum dosage. A 64-year-old male diagnosed with TC was treated successfully with individualised homoeopathic medicine for seven months. The outcome was assessed through before-and-after-treatment photographs. Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) score was used at every follow-up to assess the changes in the quality of life. The causal attribution of homoeopathic intervention was assessed by MONARCH inventory. The case has been reported as per HOM-CASE guidelines. A complete alleviation of TC was observed with homoeopathic nosode Psorinum 200C.
