Hi.. If the homepathic treatment is not giving you the expected results after more than 1 and half years, why are you continuing with it... Why don't you switch over to an alternative form treatment.

You can try phototherapy for the treatment, if you are worried of the side effects

Also understand that this disorder is known to have recurrence. And extra stress can aggravate or start a recurrence. So avoid the stressors or better learn to manage your stressors in a non stressful way.
