Please help the Dr.s can't: Severe head itch, hair loss and athletes foot!Hi
I'm actually writing this in desperation.
Please ask me any question you need to in order to help.
I am 43
Mixed race: Scottish, Dominican, Dutch and French.
I Have mixed race hair I used to complain about (silly mee) for being too thick and unmanageable. Since I had my child after 7 years of different IVF treaments - finnally sucessful, my hair started to fall out.
It wassn't too bad to start with but it was noticeable everytime I washed or brushed it. I thought it was natural after having a baby and would settle down but it got steadily worse.
I have been mildely to moderatley aenemic for the past 3 years. I have tried iron supplements but they stop my destive sysytem in it's tracks and I then suffer severe constipation with bad stomach cramps when taking them so I don't take them. As a result 3 yeras later my boods still show slighly aenemic.
My head for the last 2 years has got progrssively itchier. To the point of total distraction. Especially after washing it. Probably because I have lost so much hair in the shower it lookes like I've wahsed a s large hairy dog - enough to slow the draining of water so that the a bath is filling up. This is 'every' time I wash my hair. Now I have only hailf the hair; fullness and thisckness I had 4 years ago when I had my son. Now it is actually noticeable and I have to try and use haiarstyles that disguise it. I never tie my hair up tight, even if it's in a pony tail but it's a flimsy fine pony tail now.
I am using a tar shampoo as recommended by my doctor. It help the tiniest bbit but not a lot. The itch is till maddening.
With this I have always for the past 3 years had a flacky scalp this is also getting worse. I can't wear my hair in a parting at all, it is very noticable and I feel it is also getting worse.
Along with the for the past 3 months I have been battwling a sever case of Athele's Foot. I have never had it before but it came with it came on very fast and very hard, weeping, pussy, cracked and bleeding and at one point it was so raw and through so many layers of skinI could not physically walk on it on hobble, it's disgusting. I have tried everthing the Dr gave me, sprays, poweder, oral lamis, religiousely every day morning and night, drying, loosely wrapping, powdwering ever single day and night, I have not missed any tablets. I am so tired and fed up of spending 20 minutes morning and night cleaning my foot and treating it so I don't pass it on to my family. Washing all my socks and sheet in hopt daily, never going bearefoot etc etc etc.... Please please can anyone help. I have nevr liked medicine. I have always tried to work in harmony with the body so have rarely taken as much as a paracetamol. I have been very healthy with no other obvious problems.
My hair is also quite brittle.
Anything elase please ask.
Iam ver appreciative of anyone who will read and advise my on my problem.
Health and happinness x

GUIDELINES FOR GIVING HOMOEOPATHIC CASE INFORMATION
It is important to describe all your problems in as much detail as you are able. One word answers and short sentences are not particularly helpful. Discuss each problem one at a time, providing (as a minimum level of detail) the following information.
1. What exactly happens?
2. Describe all sensations and pains. Each pain or sensation should be described in such a way that allows us to imagine having the same pain.
3. What causes the problem to get worse after it has started occurring?
4. What creates some relief for the problem?
5. What triggers the problem into occuring?
6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?
7. When did the problem start? What was happening in your life at that time? Did some specific event or treatment take place just before the problem started?
Move from one problem to the next, doing the same thing. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU GIVE A COMPLETE PICTURE OF YOUR HEALTH BY PROVIDING ALL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, EVEN IF NOT CONNECTED TO THE MAIN ONE, AND EVEN IF YOU CONSIDER IT OF LESS IMPORTANCE.
You should address each problem separately using the above 7 questions as a guide. Do not put all your complaints into each of the 7 questions. Discuss one problem at a time. If you have, for example, a headache with nausea, do each component separately too (what makes the head pain worse or better, what makes the nausea worse or better).
As well as this, please describe any traumatic incidents that have taken place in your life. Discuss anything that has had a lasting impact on you mentally, emotionally or physically.
Discuss the way that you manage or deal with your problems, or any problems that occur in your life.
Discuss any patterns you have noticed in your behavior especially concerning your disease.
Discuss any part of your life where you feel stuck or unable to change and grow, especially where this occurred around the beginning of your disease, or as the disease evolved.
Describe your childhood and the kind of environment you grew up in, with reference to your relationships with your family, your school experiences, and any serious childhood diseases.
If your earlier discussions have not mentioned these already, please describe:
1. The specific foods that you crave (not just like) or hate
2. The specific drinks that you crave or hate
3. What your sleep is like
4. How the weather and the temperature affects you
5. What kinds of things in the environment you are particularly sensitive to
6. What your general level of energy is like
7. What your level of sexual energy or desire is like
8. Describe your menstrual cycle
9. Also give these details
a) Body type and build
b) Skin colour and texture
c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on
d) Odour of sweat, body, stool, flatus, urine
e) Colour of stool, urine, sweat
10. Give any reactions to vaccines or medical drugs.
