14 month baby - very low apetite - very dry skin

Hi All,

My baby is 14 months old. She has very dry skin right from a week after her birth. Until she was 10 months old she was fine with eating. However, the last 2-3 months she does not eat well. She pushes the food before it comes to the mouth. Sometimes she starts crying even if she sees the food. Her weight is 8kgs at 14 months. She is very active, plays very well, sleeps very well. Her learning and curiosity levels are good. She is always happy , except when she is hungry and even when she is hungry she does not eat at all. We have to distract her a lot to get some food into her. She does not drink milk or water from outside. She only feeds from her mother.

She has dry skin through out the body. We applied all kinds of oils and creams (recommended by the doctor). None of them are helping her. We're avoiding creams that contain steroids. For her bathing we're using the Oilatum soap, which was suggested by her doctor. Because of the itchy dry skin, my baby starts scratching the legs, and sometimes there will be scratch wounds on her leg

We are worried about (a) Her food in take or lack of appetite, and (b) The very dry skin.

Is there a solution in Homeopathy that can help her.

Thank you and best regards

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Yes homoeopathy can definitely help in this case.

Give her Ars 200 one dose only and do take care that she swallow it and nothing is to be given 15-20 mins. before and after the medicine and do reply after a week.
