help - itchy hands from petroleum 30Hello,
I'm a white male 27 suffering from terrible eczema on my inner thigh. The eczema started on my chest, went to my armpit, and now is on my leg. I put elacon (not homeopathic) cream on my armpits and chest, and the eczema under the armpits finally went away.
However, these rashes keep coming back. Thy look like read circles or ovals, slightly grey in the middle, whith some white fuzzy looking stuff that comes and goes.
Anyway, I decided to start taking petroleum 30 (3 pellets, 3 times a day). This is my first try with homepathic. It seems like my leg itches more after I take the pellets.
Yesterday morning, my hands started itching me really, really bad ( i don't have any rash there). This went away after 20 min.
This morning, my hands and feet are itching really bad. My hands look a little red like they're irritated.
Please help me! Should I stay on the Petroleum 30?
