Severe Plantar Atopic DermatitisHello,
I am a 43 year old female who has been suffering from Plantar Atopic Dermatitis for just over one year. I have tried topical steroid creams and ointments with little to no improvement and with serious side effects. I currently am undergoing bi-weekly phototherapy sessions (relatively safe narrowband UVB (NB-UVB) light treatment) I have seen a very small amount of improvement. My doctor would like me to use tar ointment but I have decided against it as I wish to avoid more side effects.
Approximately 2 years ago I saw a team of homeopaths as part of a homeopathy school training program. The remedy that was prescribed to me then was the constitutional remedy Sepia. The program is no longer operating and in the last few years I have taken the odd dose of Sepia 30c as well as a one time dose of Sepia 500c. I took the 500c dose more than a year ago. I have seen a homeopath for my skin in the past 6 months, but the sessions were abrupt and the remedies prescribed (sulfur and silicea) were of little benefit.
I suffer from allergies, one of which is to milk/dairy. Recently, in the middle of the night, I reacted to one pellet of Sulphur 30c with intense itching of my feet. Out of desperation I took one pellet of Sepia 30c and the itching stopped for a short time and I was able to then sleep peacefully. In the 1.5 days that followed, I took one pellet of Sepia 30c 3 times per day. For the 3 days since I have been taking 8 drops of Sepia water (1 pellet of 30c dissolved in water). During this time I have noticed greater ease and more frequent bowel movements (a change from pellet-like/constipated bowel movements) I have noticed a reduction in the mucous/catarrh and spastic cough that was the result of a recent illness that involved an extreme sore throat, a loss of my voice and a relentless tickling cough that kept me awake at night. I also experienced a deeper general sense of peace from anxiousness as well as a relief from depressive thoughts that come from the fatigue and loss of quality of life as a result of the dermatitis. I believe that I have also experienced a slight improvement from the itching and redness, and a lessening of the copious liquid puss. This is difficult to gauge as the inflammation comes and goes. I have also been mostly sleeping through the night aside from having to wake periodically to re-moisturize my feet to resolve the itch. I have also noticed a lessening of allergy symptoms, I am allergic to dust, and some foods. I have also experienced a lessening of general weepiness which I attribute to being able to sleep through the night.
I think the Sepia is the remedy that I need at this time. I would appreciate any thoughts or help in any way as to whether I am on the right track with Sepia. I am particularly concerned with dosage as I do not want to over dose Sepia.
Any help that could be offered I would whole heartedly appreciate!
