3 yr old diagnosed with Vernal Kerato conjunctivitisMy son has been diagnosed with Vernal Kerato conjunctivitis ( an allergic conjunctivitis), and have been told that its incurable and that we can only hope to control it by the use of steroid drops. At present he is on 2 drops of FML twice a day. I've been told that this is a common affliction for young boys of Indian, Middle eastern and african origin aged between 2-8yrs old and that the symptoms subside by the age of 8-10 years.
Since my son was 1 and half he has been sufferring from one eye problem after another. First it was a series of chalazions (had 4 in total) which was eventually treated by Homeopathy. The chalazions went away however now since Feb 2008, he's been sufferring from allergic conjunctivits. And just recently I has stopped using the steroid drops because I feel its doing more harm than good and have been consulting a natural healer who uses plant essences, his conditions seemed to be getting better however he deveoped a cold and has now got swollen puffer eyes. I panicked when it got so bad that he couldn't open his eye so went back to the allopathic doc who prescribed antibiotics and the steriod drops. His eyelids are still puffy but it seems to be coming down..Homeopathy worked well for my son previous, so m hopeful that it can help him now too.
I was living in India but have moved back to Australia and have not been able to find a homeopathic doctor here. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated, as am at my wits end and hate seeing my son suffer like this.
