Indian doctors have released a series of remarkable pictures that reportedly show how homeopathy can treat psoriasis.

Six patients battling the common skin condition are said to have achieved results in as few as three months after allegedly taking potions including snake venom.

Remedies - Solution - Discharge - Man - Gonorrhoea

Other remedies included a solution doused in the urethral discharge of a man who had gonorrhoea, whale vomit and decomposed beef.

Critics have issued caution over the reports, saying the evidence psoriasis can be cleared by homeopathy is lacking and the new claims are 'inappropriate'.

Supporters - Treatment - Millions - People - World

The striking images were published in the journal Clinical Case Reports, and came with details on what remedies patients were given.

Medics - Case - Report - Work - Centre

The medics behind the case report work at the Centre For Classical Homeopathy in Bangalore, India - a country where the treatment is recognised.

Writing in the Wiley-owned journal, the four-strong team said: 'Considerable skin clearance was achieved in all these cases.'

Prince - Charles - Week - 'anti-science - Position

It comes after Prince Charles was last week accused of being 'anti-science', after taking up his position as patron of the Faculty of Homeopathy.

Homeopathy is a branch of medicine that treats ailments using extremely diluted doses of natural substances that are often mixed with water.

The NHS has vowed to stamp out prescriptions for 'homeopathic preparations' – which last year cost the NHS £55,044.

Guidelines - Years - Doctors - Treatments - Placebo

This is despite official guidelines two years ago telling doctors not to prescribe the treatments, which it warned are 'at best a placebo'.

The first case was of a 43-year-old man from India, who had erythrodermic psoriasis - a life-threatening form of the condition.
