Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that is chronic and inflammatory in nature. It is clinically characterised by erythematous, sharply demarcated papules and rounded plaques covered by silvery micaceous scales. Homoeopathic medicines have been found to be useful in such cases. This report highlights a case of psoriasis in a 37-year-old male patient with complaints of psoriatic patches on almost the entire body since 18 years. The patient was treated using keynote prescribing. The remedy prescribed was Apis mellifica 30C, which covered the patient’s symptoms, including burning, redness, sensitivity to heat, and urinary complaints. Photographic records show marked improvement in all skin lesions. This case report suggests that Homoeopathic medicine can help to treat such autoimmune disorders; conventional medicine has a limited success rate in treating such conditions. If the medicine is prescribed based on a few symptoms, but these symptoms match with the keynotes, the prescription will be successful.
