Photo dermatitis is abnormal skin reaction to sunlight and is common now a days esp. in tropical countries like India. This study embraces use of homoeopathic remedies in such cases using Lippe's Repertory which is a type of general repertory. This is a Randomised Control Study which was done taking 50 cases each in interventional and control arms. Response to the treatment was assessed using scales like DLQI, Patient GAI and Physician GAI. The results were quite encouraging as 66 percent cases in control arm showed improvement whereas 30 percent patients improved in control arm. Statistical parameters like DLQI scale showed significant improvement in interventional arm in comparison to the control arm. Study approves efficacy of homoeopathic remedies in cases of Photo dermatitis using a general repertory. More such studies can be conducted in future to establish better cure rates esp. by using anti-miasmatic intercurrent doses.
