Many cases with complications of Chickungunya responds with suitable similimum like Rhus tox, Bryonia and Gelsimium We had seen many cases of reactive arthritis and maculo palpulo rashes had responded well.

Homoeopathic Repellants
 

      Many Physicians / Doctors emphasize that ‘Eupatorium perfoliatum” is the genus epidemics effectively used for prevention and generally suggested. Rhus tox and Bryonia benefited many patients to counteract the post pyrexial effects. Some doctors suggested ‘Sabadilla’ and ‘Staphysagria’ may be used as homeopathic repellants. I treated on symptom similarity., Many cases responded well to Rhus Tox in higher potencies and Eupatorium was also good in prevention in our locality.

Effective drugs
Dr. K.K.Senthil Kumaran

     
     I treated more than Ten hundred cases with Eupatorium and Rhustox as preventive medicine. Eupatorium, Rhustox and Bryonia are more useful for the full-blown Chikungunya fever cases. I attended many preventive camps and had seen approximately one thousand cases. In few cases with leading keynotes I prescribed Kali-mur, Ledum, Calc.sulph, Cinchona, Dulc, Lycopodium, Pyrogen, and Cimex.

Only few Remissions
 

      We conducted many free medical camps for the epidemic outburst Chigungunya in and around Erode city. Many cases presented the similimum of Eupatorium perfoliatum, Rhus Tox, Bryonia and Gelsemium. Preventive medicines were distributed. We organized 15 free medical camps and treated 8500 patients, only few cases reported with failures. I think they should have received during the incubation period, however we observed the intensity was very less in these cases.

My Self Experience
Dr. Geeta Mongia

     
     I also suffered from this epidemic menace. I had pain in joints especially metacarpals and metatarsals, knee, toes and elbows with fever up to 101-102>C only for 3-4 days. Then rashes appeared only on my face. I had swelling of feet and legs .The most troublesome was numbness and tingling in hands < during working and nausea <on working or sitting. All these symptoms except fever  remained for more than one month. I have given Elaterium, Caulophyllum , Apis , Actea spicata and Agaricus, Many renowned homoeopaths told as they have not seen any case of Chikungunya, few asked me to take one or other medicine as per my symptoms, most common were Rhus tox, Eupatorium perf, and Gels and some told Nat mur, Pyrogenum, Kalmia, Mezerium and Phosphorus. Prof Dr V.K.Gupta, our former principal Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College took my case history in detail and found Bryonia, Eup, Gels and Rhus tox, showed improvement only in starting, during fever and rash stage.
