Creating Waves of Awareness

Henry is a 13 year old chestnut gelding with inveterate skin problems.

What remedy would you choose in this case?

First examined: 9th March, 1993. Presented with extensive alopecia and exfoliation of the skin of face and head. This condition was non-pruritic.

History from 4.1.93, when it was first obviously considered to be a 'problem':

14.1.93: skin/hair/swab sample: mixed bacterial growth, cell interface poor, diagnosis 'dermatosis'. Blood sample 'nothing abnormal'.

Treatments as written in referral note: Antibacterial Foam, Vetsovate, Defungit, Antibiotics, Ivermectin, Dexamethasone. Vet's bills approx. £2,000.00 to date.

Owner's notes: started in small patches, feared ringworm, gradually spread & coalesced, despite treatment. Steroids stopped during the previous week.

Had sarcoids removed, from chin and axillae, in summer 1989.

Started coughing in December 1992; prevented with dampened hay but then the skin lesions appeared.

Last vaccine dates: October 1992.

Treated homeopathically, for 'vaccinosis', commenced on 11.3.93.

First client report 26.3.93: "Miracles! Within three days bad skin started to drop off rapidly, good skin showing underneath, hair started to grow through 2-3 days later, very pleased."

Next client report 14.9.93: "Henry app

ears to have made a rapid and full recovery. You can keep the enclosed photos." (These were dated and showed a virtually 100% recovery, with full hair regrowth, within 8 weeks.)

Henry by May 1993

Next client report 26.11.93: "Henry been fine but last couple of weeks had flu/tet jab (12.11.93) and 7-10 days after that started to develop patches of hair loss on his face. Will restart homeopathic treatment and report."

23.11.93: "Recommenced homeopathy on 17.11.93. Skin of right stifle and upper leg and left chest wall feels very rough with small scabs; skin on face shows very small areas of hair loss."

1.12.93: "No further hair loss, a little bit of regrowth, but skin showing in a couple of patches where did lose hair. It is dry with small flakes."

15.12.93: "Only fine dandruff left now, rest cleared, hair all regrown."

17.12.93: "Now appears to have made a full recovery, worrying about next vaccine due May 1994. Should I ask for different brand? Has to have as competing. Had double shots in Autumn (12.10.93 & 15.11.93) as just missed annual booster date!"

Recommended a homeopathic 'vaccine buffer' for the coming May.

8.4.94: Client rang and ordered 'buffer'; vaccine booked for 9.5.94

21.6.94: "Sorry for delay in writing, vaccine buffer was 90% effective, hair on face only went a little sparse around forelock, cleared easily with a repeat of the homeopathic treatment."

Henry's case illustrates the coincidence in timing so often seen, between vaccination dates and onset of symptoms/signs. It also illustrates the futility of treatment, until the underlying immune imbalance is addressed and it shows the need for and effectiveness of the 'vaccine buffer'.

Well, posted this in Jan and now almost a month later and no suggestions as to what remedy(ies) would be indicated in this case. Anyone?
