It identifies the disease tendencies of a patient and fills the vacuum with appropriate medicine so as to build up the immunity. Long term use of the medicine helps eradicate the predisposition towards the ailment. It controls the severity and intensity of acute attacks of itching and prevents relapses too. Homeopathic Materia Medica has innumerable remedies which can be employed on basis of symptom similarity to achieve the desired results. It’s an art to choose the appropriate medicine which suits the case and this depends upon the expertise and experience of the doctor.
