A case of Psoriasis! The importance of the PQRS (peculiar, quick, rare, strange) symptoms
This is a case of a 34 year old male suffering from psoriasis on the soles of his feet since 5 years. He first consulted me on the 28th September 2017. The affected skin had turned blackish, it started from the right foot and later also affected the left foot. There was scaling as well as discharge from the eruptions that oozed out after scratching. Strong symptoms were itching, he used to scratch until it bleed. He took lot of allopathic treatment for the skin. On observation – his left leg was icy cold to touch. He feelt good after warm bathing. When the psoriasis started, it began in the winter season, however eruptions were there through out the year, with flare ups in the winter season.
He was very stressed about his finances. He was working in a job where his finances were strained, and also had a lot of anxiety about the psoriasis; he felt it could turn into cancer.
He is very timid and shy, does not like to talk much. He is very shy to interact with new people.
He gets upset when there is a fight with someone. He does not like fighting with anyone. Whenever he gets angry he gets jerks in the body.
He enjoys teasing his friends.
He feels jealous by his colleagues, when they have no problems with the boss. He feels anger about this issue, but he suppresses it as he cannot express his anger to anyone.
He likes his own company, he likes to spend time alone more than in company.
He has strong fears of water, ghosts, of high places.
He is thermally a hot patient.
In this case we see lot of peculiar and characteristic symptoms which can give us the clear picture of the patient.
