Aracnnoid cysts

Few days ago my 2 and half y.o son had MRI and found very small 2 exra-axial CSF arachnoid cysts (45&6mm) in the left infratemporal.
Is there any homeopathic treatment for this?

In the time to come as the child grows you will come to know about his constitution. Depending on his constitution and correlating it with your state during pregnancy you may have to select from the following remedies

Silicea // only in high potency like 1M
and other anti-sycotic remedies

It will be better if you could do the case after meeting a homeopath in person. Till then don't worry.

Kadwa I am worry :(

Tell me what could be happened during pregnancy caused this cyst? the only thing I am doubting is taking (as recommended by my doctor)magnesium supplement on a daliy basis.

Also, I need just one answer IS THERE TREATMENT WITH HOMEOPATHY for this kind of problems? it's the mater of fluid, how could it be removed without geting the cyst and just by meds?

Homeopathy is different from allopathy. Here cyst formation is not considered as a physical phemomenon. While treating such conditions constitution of the patient is considered and psychological state of mother during pregnancy is also considered. This doesn't mean you did anything wrong. It will be considered among other factors.

Yes. But the method of treatment is not allopathic ie only on the basis of physical symptoms. Full case taking will be needed.

it's the mater of fluid, how could it be removed without geting the cyst and just by meds?
You may read Pankaj Varma's posts on pilonidal cysts. He has drained so many cysts by asking patients to take homeo medicines internally. Here more care is needed as we are dealing with cysts in a very critical area.

I do appreciate your help and sure will not start anything before being step by step with a Homeopath but I was desprate to know if cure is possible with the homeopathic meds.

I read the post of Pankaj and would like to see his opinion as well.

The proposed treatment is to dry it of every some time or it's a one time cure?

Anyway, I do appreciate all your prompt replies that was so sweet of you.
