Lip & back of palm (now wrist ) eczemaMy daughter is 11.5 years old. She was a c-section child, had severe colic (used to cry from 1 a.m. - 7 a.m. everyday) as baby at 1 month old. Pediatrician told us she had lactose intolerance and hence crying due to stomach ache. Pediatrician advised mother to stop drinking cow's-milk products since child/baby was nursing. Colic stopped at start of 3rd month. Followed soon after by ezcema on cheeks and hand (some on wrist), under knees (significant) and baby used to scratch face till it bled. Baby used ot also cry a lot during bath, although water was confirmed to not be hot, was confirmed to be luke warm. Baby was briedlfy treated for 1-2 weeks with steroid cream to stop face-bleeding from scratches by bay at night. Then eczema continued, but after few months, dissappeared, only to be followed by severe cough/cold symptoms. Eczema and cough/cold alternated with Stage I asthma symptoms (breathing difficulty with congestion) until age 1.5 years. We used a nebullizer during cold months when baby was sick, to help her breathe. At this age, we visited India and baby was diagnosed by a homeopath as having 'bovine tuberculosis' (a name sounding like that). Baby was given arsenicum album on first night to address breathing trouble due to stage I asthma. Baby threw up that night, a lot of mucus came out, and her breathing normalized. The homepath (who no longer practices due to old age) asked us to stop milk products and started baby on 12 week course where she had to take 6 pills of a certain un-named homeopathic pills . During the 12 weeks, Baby's symptoms re-appread in a reverse sequence, almost as if we had 're-played' the sickness tape. After 12 weeks, all synptoms had completely dissappeared. We were truly blessed. Now baby is 11.5 years old. Some new synptoms have arrived, and I need your help.
As an 11.5 yr old, she is very intelligent, superior at math in school, does a lot in her head, comes up with answers and even corrected her teacher last year. She gets dry skin on back of palm when she washed her hand. Her friend calls it 'flaky' (I have that issue as well and just received treatment with Sulphur, my hand is no longer dry/scaly). Daughter does not like going to be/sleep at night even if she is tired. She feels she misses her father very much (he comes later from work but gives her substantial attention, more that other fathers do for their kids).
She tends to have some fears about small things like (could there be a burglar in house, 'who made that noise'...etc. at night). She points out small things such as 'remember to keep the trash outside today'. In general she is noticeably quiet (although she used to be a chatterbox at age 3). Her face is also dry and cheeks are slightly dry-looking. Has dry scaly 1 flake under left eye. Scratches herself. Cries, saying she is tired. Plays tennis and ball in school but nothing else wrt sports. Is general slow in actions (last to move from stage during her plays). Today came home saying she has headache. Is napping now. Did not sleep well since friends stayed over. Friends were loud and had fund. My daughter was relatively withdrawn, quiet. Yesterday said she was tired, sleepy, cried saying she was tired in the afternoon. Yet at 9 p.m., I had to remind her to sleep at night. Has fallen sick with 2 consecutive flus, including 1 ear infection. Her left ear had infection was treated with amoxicillin (penicillin). Right ear did not have infection but had a lot of wax, and water went into right ear a month ago during bath. She says her ear is still clogged up and she hears slightly less from right ear. Pediatrician had examined her right ear and said it was wax. We were asked to put debrox to liquefy the wax, the clogged feeling did not go. My daughter says she feels pressure in her ear (no pain)and pediatrician has probably pushed in the ear wax more. Feels clogged. Had headache ever since she got back from school. Please help. Lot of ear-wax ever since we can remember.Overall sick----Mostly not happy and bold as children ought to be. I don;t have much rules at home and I encourage her to play, be creative, do whatever she wants...she is a rule-follower and tends to be afraid. Also too many rules in school and too much work-load/homework. Not easy when she is sick.
