Eczema covers 90% of body What can we do

My 9 yr old son suffers from eczema over most of his boddy- not on his face lower arms and feet but all over trunk, back legs shoulders. When not weeping and inflamed it feels dry and warm and flakey.
It appears worse at different times and sometimes appears to be clear leaving skin cooler and in better condition until the next attack - 3- 4 times a year.
Eczema started at 3-4 months old when I stopped breast-feeding.
It is worse usually Autumn and spring. Cannot go in sea because it is too painful but does swim in pool three times a week- figure it is important to learn to swim even with eczema!
A real outdoor boy who is very slim but agile and athletic- football, running climbing trees etc Very sociable giving and thoughtful has many friends and is popular with adults and children. Has an older brother who is very accademic and feels that he will not be able to live up to his older siblings abilities. Doesnt push himself forward or acknowlege his achievements loudly if at all.
Does get warm in bed
No aversions to speak of has a good varied diet though has nose bleeds and we used vit.K sucessfully. Loves fruit- can eat quite tart fruit- even lemons! Eats 6/7 portions of fruit/veg a day some cooked some raw. Doesnt like nuts much or rice, potatoes orcouscous but does like pasta meat veg etc Not fussy- will eat choc but can live without it. Does like sweets but only has very few.
Has had chicken pox but very rarely anything else, few colds or stomach upsets quite strong but skinny.
Doesnt like to dring water so I have to remind him constanly We have chiropractic care but not helping with skin. Have seen kinisiologist and use iodine for three months which helped slightly. Have seen homeopath many years ago who gave us sulphur in a bottle. No help at time.
Sleeps well bed-time 8 0 clock wakes up 7.30 rarely/never wakes in nightfrom birth.
Can anyone help, the doctors have prescribed creams which I cannot bring myself to use

Hi Mumhelp,

Please answer the following queries:

1./) Is he very graceful in his movements ?

2./) Does he have long eye lashes ?

3./) Does he make friends very quickly ?

4./) Any strong liking for iced drinks or ice creams ?

Yes he is quite graceful and articulate but sometimes hunches his shoulders a little embaraced by his abilities to dance or perform in front of people etc
Yes he has quite long eyelashes- genetic, we all have in our family
Yes he makes friends very quickly and is very loyal
Yes likes iced drinks a lot and ice-cream but I limit this - prefers his milk warmed

Sameer thnkyou for getting back to us we really appreciate it
I just wanted to add that my other son has fantastic skin and but does suffer occasionally from psoriasis on his scalp- we have managed to stabalise and are free at the moment. I aslo suffer from psoriasis - a large patch on my lower shin and small bits on elbows. I thought that this may be relevant

Hi Mumhelp,

Please follow this exactly:

Three doses of PHOSPHORUS 30c to be given for ONE single day ONLY as described below.

Dissolve 2 pellets of Phos 30c in a 250 ml spring water bottle. If leave the pellets in water for 20 mins, they will melt. You can shake it gently after they have dissolved.

Give a teaspoon from this bottle using a disposable spoon 3 times, spaced by 30 minutes. This is to be done for one day ONLY.

Let me know in 7 days after these 3 doses. I look forward to your response.


1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 40 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water .
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption
4/. Avoid wearing perfume/aftershave, or exposure to anything with a strong smell on the day and 3 days following the remedy administration. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicey foods
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be avoided during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by an MD.
7/. Nothing of a medicinal nature should be applied to the skin

Hello Sameer
I have taken a while to answer because I am puzzled! My sons eczema has done what it often does and has started to get much better- before I was able to give him the phos that you suggested. I should be pleased but I am also worried that it will come back as this happens all the time! I gave the Phos but he has been on a careful very alkali diet- lots of cucumber and avacado and salads, much less grain and meat. The main areas still affected are his shoulders and the tops of his legs-from knee to groin. The rest is healing amazinglyand the texture of his skin is vastly improved but he has a cold at the moment which is not usual for him. He has had a strong probiotic for one month too. What do you think I can do to keep the skin this good permanantly?
Many thanks

Hi Mumhelp,

When were the Phos doses given ?

sameervermani last decade
As I couldnt get hold of [phos 30 I had to send away for it which took forever, so he took it last Sunday- 28th June by which time things were clearing
Mumhelp last decade
Hi Mumhelp,

Just wait and watch for now, and update me when it has been 15 days from the dose.

Keep Phosphorus 200c at hand.
