A middle aged girl comes to me with dry rough skin all over the body but especially over hands and legs, there was lot of dead skin which keeps on developing on that area, she consults a local doctor who gives her some ointments, after three months of applying ointment she suddenly develops lots of anxiety and panic for which again the local doctor gave her some tablets to give her peace and tranquillity. This tablets only makes her anxiety worse in few weeks hence she stops the tablet and comes to K.E.M. hospital for homoeopathy the following symptoms were considered.

Von Boenninghausen was the first homeopath who was in favour of concomitant symptoms. His method of repertorization is very simple and now a day it is gaining
popularity over Kent method due to its simplicity. Concomitant symptoms are the symptoms that always accompany the main symptom but have no pathological
relation to the chief ailment’. This is the customary view on concomitant symptom mainly sketched by Dr H. A. Roberts. But on closely scrutinizing the article by Dr
Boenninghausen, ‘A contribution to the judgment concerning the characteristic value of symptoms’ in his lesser writings, we can perceive wider dimensions and clarity on
these auxiliary symptoms. We all know the parameters set by Boenninghausen for identifying characteristic symptoms in a case as well as in a drug.
