Abstract

A 19-year-old girl with documented nickel-induced allergic contact dermatitis was referred to the department of traditional Persian medicine five weeks after the sudden onset of bolus and erythematous skin rash to receive treatment based on complementary and alternative medicine. A detailed history of jewelry exposures, lifestyle, food intake, and dietary habits was obtained, as well as the history of other physicians� visits and administered treatments within the past eight weeks. Despite receiving treatment with corticosteroids, anti-histamines, and antibiotics, no satisfactory remission was achieved, and the patient discontinued the treatments. As the alternative medicine approach, treatment was started based on avoiding contact with nickel, administration of Manna of Alhagi persarum and Portulaca oleracea seeds, and avoidance of consuming tomato sauce, cocoa, coffee, and bitter chocolate. Within six weeks, a complete remission of the skin lesions and symptoms occurred. Moreover, normal clinical follow-up was observed after 12 months. Notably, the CARE (CAse REport) guidelines were used in the preparation of this case report.
