Severe aggravation after Rhus Tox 200c for pompholyx/dyshidrotic eczema 30Advice needed for aggravation of rhus tox on 8 month old infant with atopic eczema 5


The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Dear Doctors, Please help cure my chronic eczema, aggravation

I am 34 years old woman, married for 2 years. I have been suffering from skin eruptions since I was 20 years. That time I was treated with Betamethasone cream which gave good relief, almost disappearance (may be suppressed) of the eruptions. I used to get flare ups here and there, so I apply the same cream as needed. It is almost 14 years now, and I realized the ill effects of corticosteroids so thought of stopping them and tried homeopathy 8 months back. But the eruptions, itching, oozing (back of legs just below the knee and inner thighs just above the knees bilaterally and a mild eruption in right breast are affected areas) were so severe that I could not bear them at all, so I stopped homeopathy and started ayurvedic treatment which gave relief. But after 1 month of treatment I had to relocate to a place where I could not continue ayurvedic, so unfortunately I had to start Betamethasone again. Now last month, again I started homeopathy with Kali mur 6x for a week, Graphites 30 1 dose for a day, then sulphur 30 for a week. Now started merc 30. Now the eruptions are there, but rarely they itch, and ooze only if I scratch violently. Am I on the right track? Please guide me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your remedy is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. You should observe that your lesions tend to improve within 48 hours when the weeping and itchiness reduces. It will be necessary that you continue to take the remedy even if it does not bother you anymore as there is every chance of the Eczema returning. You can then reduce the dosage to once nightly just before bed to ensure that Eczema does not affect you anymore.

Arnica will also help to dissolve any Cholesterol deposits in your arterial system and will help to maintain your Blood Pressure at normal levels as long as you take it daily.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made up as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also known as Liquid Dilution.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles.
This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is sipped as directed.

The remedy water should also be applied directly on the lesions with your finger tips as this also helps them to heal faster.

Thank you for the reply doctor. Should I have to continue Merc (takin this for removing hard crusts and rough skin). I dont have itching or oozing. if there is itching i take sulphur which relieves it. Should I take Arnica 6c along with this? Is Arnica 6c equivalent to Arnica 30??
drsd123 last decade
You will STOP all other medication if you start on my therapy.

Arnica 6c is not the equivalent of Arnica 30c.
Joe De Livera last decade
thanks doctor. I doubt I will get Arnica 6c here. But I can get Arnica 30c/200C. Anything can be done? Can you please tell me if the medicines which I am taking now are correct? I am much relieved with these medicines except the crust formation and rare itching. Can you suggest something which would remove the crusts and dryness of the skin. The affected areas smell like egg.
drsd123 last decade
It is essential that you order the Arnica 6c if you wish to be cured of your Eczema.

I have experimented with the 30c potency for Eczema but it is only less than 50% as effective as the 6c.

The drugs you are using now are a waste of time and money as you would have discovered by now.

Dear Joe De Livera,
Greetings, you must have extensive experience in managing eczema with Arnica. Do you initiate Rx of all cases with Arnica or do you attempt to individualise?
Are there any references in the Homeopathic literature as to this specific therapy?
using the 'classic approach' we do see a fair share of unnecessary aggravation even with sulph 6c.

To Dr Seedat

I have used Arnica 6c in the Wet dose with outstanding success and my rate of cure is around 80%. Homeopathy to me is only a Hobby and it is just the satisfaction I get out of helping anyone in distress which I do free of charge at my advanced age of 82 that keeps me motivated into Homeopathy and on a few Forums that I visit daily.

I am surprised to note that none of the classical MM's and Repertories list Arnica as a remedy for Eczema and it will qualify under my own brand of therapy which was derisively labelled as 'Joepathy' by a few classical homeopaths who did so out or sheer frustration and perhaps even jealousy as they were never taught that it is not only classical homeopathy that works. I use the Joepathy method of treating the disease and do not really bother to abide by the classical diktat of 'treating the totality of the symptoms presented by the patient with a single remedy'.

I am glad to note that it is not only I that use the direct 'this for that' therapy where I treat the disease with the remedy I have used myself or which has helped other patients who presented the same ailment.

You might care to Google the following words for further information:

Wet dose

You are also invited to visit my website


I shall copy my default therapy 'Joepathy' for Eczema below:

The remedy for your Eczema is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose which is made up as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

Take a capful of the remedy water twice daily and also apply the water on your lesions as often as possible.

You should observe some improvement in your condition on about the third day into this therapy.

Please report your response on the third day.

It is understood that you will not take any other drug while using the Arnica therapy.
