This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Skin medicines are terrible and cause great damage to the whole system. Please avoid medicines put on the skin, other than homeopathic ones.

Please use the homeopathic patient intake form and give us the appropriate information about your case, and hopefully someone here will help you begin correct homeoapthic treatment.

None that I know of

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

Anxiety/stress, I cannot wear t shirts and have to keep myself covered at all times. I feel a bit angry since I dont understand why the eczema has returned as I was completely clear for about 8 years.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words.

A lot of burning and a very strong urge to scratch. The burning sensation feels very hot and itchy.


5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

I used to have eczema as a child but it disappeared almost 8 years ago,I was treated for it at a dermatology clinic and it was pretty much gone but it seems to have come back about 2-3 months ago.

At night, the scratching and burning is unbearable.

I am pretty much the same as I was before I had the eczema but im probably a bit more moody and arguementative at night when it is more irritating. Apart from this I havnt let it change my mental set up much.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?

normal

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?

No, I have not told anyone about it. This is probably because I feel as though it will clear up soon (which it probably wont).

- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?

As a child they said my eczema was mildly light sensative and that I should stay out of the sun as
it could aggravate my symptoms.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc?

no

Perfectly fine, my feelings regarding them are normal and havnt changed since I have had the eczema.

Fear that the eczema will stay for a while which will prevent me from taking up certain oppurtunities.

i eat pretty clean, not many cravings

Can you tell us more about your general body type? Are you fat, thin, muscular, etc?
Can you tell us more about your sweat? When do you sweat? Where on your head?

Are you active? Lazy? What are your activities like?

There are a few symptoms of Calc. Head sweat, worse dairy, light skin. But not enough information to make a full perscription.

Please tell us more about yourself. Your personality, interests, social relations, etc.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
The description points to Sulphur. HI to decide.
 
Niel Madhavan 9 years ago
I'm comfortable with a perscription of Sulph. My preference would be to get more information from the patient. If you'd like to take this patient from here, you are welcome to.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Hmmmm....I agree. Let us wait for the patient to answer the questions.
 
Niel Madhavan 9 years ago
really appreciate the responses people, sorry for being so brief.

To answer the above questions I am muscular, I sweat from my forehead mainly but sometimes all over (during my workouts). I can be lazy sometimes but generally im pretty active as I enjoy working out.

I keep to myself and im kind of quiet. However im pretty open within my circle of friends, I enjoy going out and watching movies. Also enjoy going on holidays.

I made the silly mistake of already ordering arnica montana tablets a few days ago, is there any point taking them since you guys are pointing to sulphur as the right remedy? Thanks for the help.
 
nemz1 9 years ago
Hi

Please take a singlw wet dose of Sulphur 200 on a SINGLE DAY ONLY.

You would need to dissolve 2 drops / pills of the remedy in 100ml of mineral water. Allow to dissolve for 10 minutes. Shake the bottle vigorously 10-15 types and take 1 teaspoon from it as one dose. Discard the rest.

Let us know of your condition 7 days from taking the remedy.

Regards,
Niel

Hi Niel,

How are you doing today?

Good suggestion to start with the anti-Psoric chief remedy!

But, I would like to learn from the expertise, skill and experience of Jewish Homeopath (Homeopathy International 1). As he took a lot of information from the patient, then, he must treat his patient and provide an opportunity for others to learn from him, the case taking, his prescription, and his case management.

Neil, please keep up the good work and stay blessed!

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
thanks niel, so I would have to take it once a week only and then wait 1 week?
 
nemz1 9 years ago
nawazkhan, I agree with the Sulph. perscription. The first response was lacking much important info. I find information about the patients body type, and physical traits, to be important, and the patient had left them out. When the patient filled in the important info, I became much more comfortable with the Sulph. perscription.

Notice the info that I wanted from the patient before being comfortable of a perscription.

'Can you tell us more about your general body type? Are you fat, thin, muscular, etc?

Are you active? Lazy? What are your activities like?

Please tell us more about yourself. Your personality, interests, social relations, etc.'
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Yes, Nemz. One dose on a single day and then wait for a week and update on the status.
 
Niel Madhavan 9 years ago
ok before I send my order through can I get another opinion on whether or not sulphur is the correct choice?

its my first time taking any sort of remedy from here and im kinda scared/nervous that it might not be the right remedy and that I might see some awful side effects from it. No disrespect to the guys that advised me above I just want to be cautious since this is my first time taking any type of remedy.
 
nemz1 9 years ago
Nemz, I gave this case another look, and I agree with the Sulphur 200c perscription.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
ok the sulphur took ages to arrive but its here now, i got the 6c version and took 2 tablets? Is that enough or should I had taken more since its only 6c?
 
nemz1 9 years ago
Hi

Since it is 6c, please take 2 pills every alternate day, a total of 6 doses and let me know after that.

Regards,
Niel
 
Niel Madhavan 9 years ago
ok so every monday wed fri etc for 6 days i take 2 tablets?
 
nemz1 9 years ago
bump for clarification, why cant I just take a higher dose?
 
nemz1 9 years ago
ok so every monday wed fri etc for 6 days i take 2 tablets?
- Yes

bump for clarification, why cant I just take a higher dose?
- Homeopathy works best if the principle of minimum dosing is used.
 
Niel Madhavan 9 years ago
im on the 4th day and no difference so far..its obviously psoriasis as the skin is scaly and looks like it contains cuts. The skin has darkened around my legs/arms where the psoriasis is located. After the next 2 days if I see no difference then what?
