6 yr old boy with rash on cheeks

Hello. I have always received very good info from this site and i hope you can help me with this.

My 6 year old son has a small roundish, white-ish rash on each of his cheeks. this seems to have come now that the weather is getting warmer.

He is a great eater. He eats everyday oatmeal and honey, he loves tomatoes, strawberries, watermelon, chicken, pasta and almond butter. he does not want to eat any leafy greens- only snap peas and broccoli. he loves fish and apples.
he is constantly hungry. he is very active, very helpful and caring.

he does also have a slight rash of small dryish, bumpy redish dots on each of his forearms that crawls and worsens at seemingly random times. he is in very good health- he did have asthma about 3-4 years ago, but thru herbs, food and yoga he doesn't anymore.

this rash, i think, will also crawl so i would like to try something to stop this. he is outside in sun playing a lot.he is of med. complexion- olive/bronze color. i have tried sulfur 30 once a day but does nothing.

thank you for your help.

Does he grinds his teeth while sleeping?

How is his tongue? Is it Flabby

Is is White coated on the whole of tongue or any oher part of the tongue?

Yes, i have heard him grind his teeth at night. Also, he has whitish coating on the back of his tongue seems to lessen further up towards the front of his tongue. I don't know if it is flabby or not- he does have a wider tongue.

Also on upper arms there is a lightening in color where he has had the rash of small, dry bumps, which is gone but the lightening is still there.

thank you so much for responding. i don't think it is his diet because he eats wonderfully- he is very healthy, rarely ever sick and heals quickly. very nice and helpful disposition but constantly hungry. i thought maybe is parasites? but no other evidence (except maybe teeth grinding).

i appreciate any information.
thank you too much.

Yes correct he is having parasites in his entestines.

Please start immediately the following :-

1. Cuprum Oxydatum Nigrum 3X (3 Pills at a time three times a day)


(if not available then CINA 30C 4 Pills at a time and three times a day.)


2. Nux Vom 30 C (4 Pills at a time and three times a day alternatively with the 1st medicine.

If you are serious please inform me after every 3 days as to how the medicine is responding so that if any change is required depending upon the changes of the symptons, it should be advised.

okay, I have been using the CINA 30c and Nux Vom 30c (I am waiting for the cuprum oxy nigrum.). So far the white patches are still there, but seem to be slowly muting in color. when i get the cuprum, should i stop the cina?

thank you so much!

Yes. Wait for about a week of giving the medicine and report.

Hi Amaraya, is there any improvement in your son's status. How long you had been taking the medicines. How is he now..

My son's status is as follows. Please do tell me whether u could help me.
My Son is 6 yrs old. His complexion is wheatish brown. He has been having rashes on his cheeks for past 4 yrs. The rashes are light reddish with very small bumps. But we found his cheeks to be very sensitive from birth, wet napkins make his face very dry and rashes start to appear. But now the rashes are there all through the year for 4 yrs now. It appears and then look as though it is healing but then it remains. Its been years now since we have seen his normal skin colour on his cheeks. He also has it on both his upper arms. He sweats a lot, otherwise healthy kid, eats lots of fruits and vegetables, no major ailments. I am using brown pears soap for him, moisturizing Pond's dry cream, but on suggestion of his physician I am using Vaseline for other parts of the body, but for face I only use Ecuerin cream. Some doctors asked me to apply hydrocortisone cream on the cheeks, but no use it just there, only discoloration happens if I use cortisone regularly.
As far as hereditary goes, My mother-in-law has Eczema on her foot , its been there for ages, wonÂ’t go. My Mother has Leukoderma from her early age. I am kind of confused and need your help. I am also new to homeopathy.
Please do guide me.
