1) I had eczema first, then went on to asthma. I have had both problems since childhood.My father has asthma maybe thats why.

2)Sulphur helped my asthma for about 2 days, i didnt need my inhaler as much, however after that it went back to worse. emotionally felt better.No improvement to eczema.

3) menses are normal, no problems sexually.

4)I get angry quickly, im emotional and a sensitive person, prone to anxiety and think too much.

5)I get annoyed in the heat , and prefer a slight breeze.Itching is worse when hot.I dislike very cold weather.I like it normal, and feel better physically too.

6) I have dry skin, and feel itchy on my face and neck when im sleeping which really makes me uncomfortable as its on my face, skin gets dry then after using steroid the dry skin flakes off.I dont want to keep using steroid as of the bad effects. My skin feels tickly and maybe get some bumps when im about to itch that night. sometimes i will make myself bleed.I do not itch in the daytime. My asthma gets worse in dusty conditions, damp weather, stress, I have a wheezy chest in the morning and some phlegm white in colour. It is controlled using inhalers.

Thankyou for your response. If you need any more info please ask.

Eczema was suppressed and it resulted in asthma. This is typical suppression phenomena.

There's a possibility that homeopathic medicine might bring out the suppressed eczema, the essential thing that has to be kept in mind is skin issue/eruptions/eczema must not be treated externally by applying ointments or taking medicines for that particular complaint alone. The only thing that can be used is coconut oil.

You need to take a remedy called pulsatilla 30c. Dissolve 2 pills or drops in a 250 ml mineral water bottle. Take 2 drops from this bottle as a dose.

You shall repeat this dose every 3 days. But after first dose, for every subsequent dose, you must shake the water bottle up and down for 5 times. Preserve the bottle in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.


Do not take anything solid or liquid for half an hour before and after the dose.

Try to avoid taking coffee, tea, alcohol.

Try to avoid the exposure to mint based substances, camphor based substances and also strong smelling substances including incense and strong perfumes.

Stop with the dose that produces marked aggravation and report appropriately.

Do not take any other homeopathic medicine during this duration until further updates and avoid all OTC medicines and supplementation except emergency medicines.
