LM and eczema

I am currently administering sulphur LM dosage to a toddler for eczema. As per LM norms, I started with LM1 and progressed up as the dilutions of 4oz bottles finished.

I noticed that while administering LM2, his skin was the best I've seen in a long time. When I moved to LM3, I immediately noticed skin aggravation.

Based on what I read in David little's notes on LM dosing, assuming the medicine is correct, aggravation can either happen early in treatment if given too often, or at the end when the body is cured an no longer needs this medicine.

Either way, my understanding tells me to back off and wait and observe.

Here is my understanding:

I won't give anything for w week. If I see skin has improved, but he still scratches, then he is not cured, so I should continue back to Sulphur (assuming no new symptoms). If this is the case, I think I need to go back to LM2 since LM3 produces aggravation (once a day dosage). I could try LM3 spaced in longer intervals as well if I see LM2 is not helping after a while.

My advisor is encouraging me to continue with LM3 till new symptoms are produced, but I personally think I need to back off, let the aggrvation go away and then go back to LM2 instead of LM3.

I am looking for a second opinion on procedure.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I am aware of aph. 281 that talks about backing off for 8-10 days on aggravation and then raising the dose. However, David Little sights Hahn. Paris Case books where Hahn. has gone back down on doses when a higher dose produced homeopathic aggravation.

Hence my thought of going back to LM2

May I ask why did you chose Sulphur?

Sulphur almost always gives relief in skin issues whether it is the correct remedy or not.

Sulphur was chosen due to a significant match on mentals and then match of symptoms to the primary compliant. I know sulphur is often the default panacea for all things psora, but in this case, it was also a very good match on mentals, physicals and the main symptom.

When I first repertorized, I concluded on either Sulph. or Phos (after detailed read of homeopathic psychology by Bailey and children's homeopathic treatment by Herscu). The person I am working with selected Sulphur.

Sorry for digressing from the topic that you want answers on but the words of advice by Classical_hom in the below thread are so true that it would ring alarm bells in the mind of any prescriber


There is a probability that Sulphur may not work beyond a certain point, and would result in aggravations and provings upon frequent repetition.

First you may need to anti-dote Thuja 1M that was repeated with indiscriminate discretion and has left its imprint on the vital force.

At present phos lies buried under several layers and u need to try a few things before u get to it.

Please get a good prescriber.

Well, 'classical_hom' is a a nom de plume for another regular poster. Read the writing style and you will know. So again, I know that is 'his' opinion. I don't agree with it.

Thanks for pointing me to that thread - but it has nothing to do with what I am asking, as you correctly surmised.
