Rash

I developed a small rash on my right shin that spread in symmetrical patches up my body. After much testing the only thing that was found was a Strep ASO count of 1229. I began antibotics which brought my count down to 989 but the rash remained. I also began developing another rash so I went to see an infectious disease doctor who diagnosed the second rash as MRSA (no wet infection). I stopped all antibiotics 2 months ago and began seeing a Naturopathic doctor. I am taking acai, acidophilus, magnesium,echinacea & goldenseal root. I have also been taking Rus Tox for the sever itching. The rash is better but still here after 5 months. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Please take Calcarea Carb 200c thrice a day at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you. I will follow your directions and report back.

It has been 15 days and the rash is slightly better. The itching is not as intense and I haven't had any new sores appear in the past week. The old sores are very slow to heal. What should I do now?
 
zingara last decade
Please wait for another 15 days and report back. Let us see how far the healing process goes on the basis of the doses that you have already taken. We will decide after 15 days. In the meanwhile if symptoms worsen you may take a single dose of Calcarea Carb 200c for only one day (not daily).

The rash has continued to slowly heal. I would say it's about70% better. I still have had no new outbreaks but the itching has seemed to increase slightly in the last week. I did take a single dose of Calcarea Carb about 10 days ago.
 
zingara last decade
Again as had been said earlier you may take another dose of Calcarea Carb 200c if your symptoms worsen on sustained basis. It would be prudent to wait for another 5 days to take the aforesaid dose, but you may also take it earlier.
If after taking the calc carb 200 dose (you should also wait for 15 days thereafter) as mentioned earlier your symptoms again worsen you should take a single dose of Calc Carb 1M (dose size is same as has been told earlier for calc carb 200) and then you should see how that affects in the next 20-30 days.
