The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Severe Eczema (Arsenicum Alb + Sulpher)

Hello everyone,
First of all I am not a homeopath. But I am having a very severe skin disease. I had been in consultation with 2 homeopaths but right now I have relocated to jeddah, KSA. And right of 10-1 days of relocation, the whole skin disease is back in a full swing. I had brought a few homeopathic medicines with me.
Arsenicum Alb 30
Sulphur 200
Prorinum 1M
Sulphur 1M
Sulphur 30

First I took sulphur 200 with a one day gap.
It was not working so but It kinda felt better.
THen I took Prorinum 1M and the eczema errupted on my face and head. Preivously It was only arms and onmy back and only my chest. Also on thighs and lgs.
Then I took sulphur 1M after a week. The itching was fine but the eruptions were very disturbing. Specially my ear lobs. They always drip. Its hard to take a comfortable sleep at night.

Now after five days I took Ars Alb. 30 at night. In the morning the itching was inccreased but the eczema patches were more dry (less weepy) and I feel that they are like healing. So I took ars alb 30 in the morning again after the bath.
My skin is itchy, (more on the places where there is no eczema strangely, I mean the places where skin looks ok).
and the eczema patches are thin and little dry (no erruption) but they are actually not dry if i touch then. But erruptions are less so I feel relaxed.

One important thing I need to mention is that those who live in Saudi Arabia they know that everything is air conditioned due to intense heat. But I feel uncomfortable in the AC. and I sleep in a room with no ac and fan. But still i feel more comforatable and I dont sweat too much (strangely).

Now my question is can I take ars alb 30 3 times a day, and sulphur 200 after one day gap. I mean as I am not a homeopath so I wonder taking these two may not be dangerous?

Please reply.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Ah...this is a rather dangerous thing you are doing.

Firstly, all these remedies cannot be right for you. Only one of them can be indicated at the present time. This means that two of them are wrong (if not all three).

Secondly, you should never change remedies so quickly without proper assessment of the initial reaction. You can create interactions between remedies this way (combined effects).

There is no telling what remedy is doing what, or if you are even getting a curative action from them. Taking new remedies on top of other remedies that are still working is bound to cause problems for you.

You should be taking a single dose of one remedy only, wait and observe the reaction over 1-2 weeks, before assessing the overall reaction.

You can possibly use this guide I posted regarding assessing reactions to remedies, although it takes a certain amount of experience to do this properly. It might help you though.

brisbanehomoeopath:

Dear brisbanehomoeopath thanks for your reply. Problem is that I am in KSA. And its hard to find a homeo pharmacy here or homeo doctor for that matter. I only have the medicine I have listed. Can you please advise which one is better to take. Then I will continue to take that for a week or two

Dr Nawaz:

Thanks for you reply. I will post a detailed reply later. Thats a lot of information.

Also any body reading this, please let me know any homeopath in jeddah.

Your homoeopaths did take all this information before to prescribe didn't they? What Nawaz has asked for is a minimum for prescription. I will add my intake form as well.

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.

its eczema. But now i think its proriasis due to the hard and dry flakes.

Previously the patches were wet. Now dry because I had to take antibiotics caz I

couldnt walk due to blisters under my feet. The feet look different than the body patchs.

On ear lobs.

On face. But now little dry. I hate AC/low temp. Even in KSA where temperture is very high i sleep without AC because AC makes me itch more.

And itch is usually on the parts of the skin where there is no psoriasis patch. I mean

on the part where skin is ok. And I can feel the itch under the skin.



17. How do you feel? pathetic. I am an engineer, earning well. But there is one thing

that is always on my mind. 'Life is really hard'



18. How does this affect you? The itchy skin disturbes my work.



19. How does it feel like? Sometimes I think I will never be able to get rid of it.

Becasue there is no homeopathy in KSa.



20. What comes to your mind? God help me get me out of this misery.



21. One situation that had a

big effect on you? I cant say that there is one situation



22. How did that feel like? Not applicable

23. What sensation do you experience in that situation?



24. What are you showing by that gesture of your hand (Habits or Actions)?
No answer?? I dont understand the question



25. Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?

I was in consultaion with one homeopath who practiced combinitions and he said that

problem is with your kidny. And all that is on your skin will be drained through your urine.so he gave me lots of medicines and my pee smelled a little more pungent.

After 6 months all the patches were gone.



This happened about 5 years ago.

About one year ago my patches started showing again. This time I went to another homeopath who was more classical and hated combinitions. he gave me medicine. And it

took some good time to get rid of my patches. Not all were gone but I used steroids to get rid of remaining one.

Now is the third time.



Now I am on my own.





26. Family Background: typical middle class. Always low on budget.



27. Educational Qualifications of the patient : Mechanical Engineer



28. Nature of work, what do you do for living? I am working as design engineer. I design pressure vessels, Heat exchangers etc Basically the work need a lot of attention and I am good at it.



29. Desires, likes and dislikes for food: I like lamb meat but due to proriasis I cant eat it. Milk makes my stomach uncomfortable. I like yougurt.



30. Name of foods which increase your problem: I cant say that something makes my proriasis/eczema worse. If there is something, I am unable to identify. Doctor told me to avoid meat.



31. Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient.and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not , you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections. : Worrying most of the time. Thinking most of the time. Making plans of future. Paying too much detail. Sometimes I get worried about things that others will simply ignore. I am not good at expressing love and affection in words (same comments by my wife). Dis-satisfied with my life (job etc)



32. Aggravation (increases-time, season,)& Amelioration (Decreases) : With the change in weather.



33. Attached here your photographs of the affected area. (if
required/optional)



34. Location of the disease : forearms, face, earlobs, back of ear, chest back, thighs, foot

35. Side of the problem (Right or Left), (Upper or Lower part of body) :
both

36. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc.
Usually very pale yellow (more like honey) stool not good, blackish greenish.



I have interest in homeopathy and I have identified that I have a sulphur personality.

Overall health is good. But last month my tongue has been very white. (along with the psoriasis/eczema). My sex life is good.



1. What exactly happens? This time it happened very quickly! within two days my body started the patches. previously it took some time like a month or two.



4. What creates some relief for the problem? Baths. I can bath a whole day in warm shower.

Also previously when I didnt had proriasis I really really like warm/hot showers. And I used to bath atleast 30 min.





6. What time of the day or night does the problem occur?

Nights are actually the tought ones. The ozing of the patches increases at nite. specially

ears its hard for me to sleep on side. Itching is also more at night.



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?



Thing is that this time when I had psoriasis I was quite relaxed mentally.
And my problems were actually less as compared to before.



Also I think that there may be a change that I had alergy. I got some flu and I took a medicament containing ivy and thymes. After that it seemed that I got more patches.



I also suspect that As I stayed in a hotel for 15 days, there might be a chance of mites biting. That may have caused the patches, but given the fact that I had it before this may just be a wrong guess.



There is one more thing I would like to share that my body heat is too much.
When I am cuddling with my wife at nite, she usually moves awaay saying that you are too hot. and your body and hands are too hot. I can easily feel my head heating up too.



I would also like to mention that I always had a disturbed gastric system. I used to had acid reflux.





I hope that is enough info.

Even if i cant get the medicine here in saudi arabia, Atleast you u guys can help me diagnose.



Also I am going to see a dermatologist today who agreed to do biopsy so I will post the results too.





9. Also give these details



a) Body type and build : Average

b) Skin colour and texture : You can say fair

c) Areas of the body tends to perspire on : Arm pits. folds near genitals

Any update on this one?

Here is the update on my side:

I started taking sulphur 30 in the morning and ars. alb. 30 at night.

considering the fact that I have limited medicine, this was recommended by a homeopath with whom I had discussion on the phone. He lives in riyadh so its not possible for me to meet him.

Also I am actually trying other things.

I take a table spoon of Apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water (one in the morning and the other at night). Plus I am taking salmon oil (omega 3 etc) capsules.

Right now I am observing changes in my proriasis. The patched are more crusty and dark brownish now, its like they are healing. Not pinkish red and ozing as before.
And I feel lot better. I am comfortable in Air Conditioning now. But just when i though it is healing, one patch on the back of my hand near the thumb started ozing heavily, when I washed my hands. And is still wet. I am going to take a bath in a moment. And I suspect that I will see a lot of ozing on other patched too. God help me, I have to goto office tomorow.

The biggest patch on my right elbow is also worst. It seems too much ozing. It seems dark brown with some blood marks. It really bad. I have been covering it up for about a week when I goto office. With a simple cotton and gauze bandaid.

I really need help here.
And one more thing my left ear lobe is also ozing too much. I mean whenever i touch it. My fingers are wet.
It a big problem too, considering the fact i have problem sleeping on left side. and In office I am wiping it with a cloth all the timne.


Please provide some insight.

Also I was doing some reading on the internet and I found out that a very white toungue (with a think layer of something) is probably due to yeast candida (I dont know what it is).

Any clue in homeopathy?

I am consulting a dermatologist, and she gave me same old steroid cream, but I am avoiding it. I didnt use it. But she also did byopsi 3 days ago. And I will share the result soon, may be after 2-3 days.

Hi Brisbanehomoeopath, your kind attention is needed here. Please help.

May God Bless You.

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
You need to stop taking two remedies, and actually you need to stop taking those remedies for a period of time before another prescription can be made. A week's break will probably be enough. After a week, report what changes have happened - then a new prescription can be made. There is no way to tell which remedy is doing what, whether you are getting side effects or if your natural disease is just changing on its own.
 
brisbanehomoeopath 9 years ago
OK
As per your recommendation I am going to stop all the medicine.

I will wait one week.

Hello Everyone,

One my friends is travelling to jeddah from Pakistan on this 19th. So I was wondering if you could prescribe any medicine so that I ask him to bring with him.
Beside that you can tell me which medicine are expected to me used. He can bring all of these. So just tell, even if I use it or not.

Its quite cheap in Pakistan.

Well here is an update on my situation:

After I stoped the medicine (Sulphur 30 + Ars. Alb. 30), the dried and crusty patches have started

to get wet again.

But this time the thickness seems to be less. When I say thickness it means that the are not raised
from normal skin. And now the deposition is greenish. The crusty brown stuff fell off after

two/three baths.

The ear is worst. I can feel a little pain in my ear lub all the time. It not actually a pain but a

burning sensation. It was not there before.

Previously (when I was taking the medicine) My body starting accepting the air conditioning. As you

may remember I told you that It was hard for me to stay in AC even Hot and Humid Saudi Arabia.
That was way better. Even I used AC when I slept.
But last night after I took a both. I felt so much itching in almost all of my upper half of the

body. I couldnt understand what is wrong. Usually I feel better after the bath.
Then I turned of the AC, and I started feeling better.

Today as I am in office, I still feel itchy .
My itching is not usually on the patches but on the skin that is actually very fine.

Although the subject of this thread says Eczema, but my dermatologist said its probably psoriasis.
I am still waiting the result of my Biopsy. I will post it when I get it.

Other thing that I have notices is that when I took the medicine mentioned earlier. I got too
much dandruf. And it is still there even I have stopped the medicine. I had dandruf my whole life

but this is too much. I mean a slight touch of my hand on the head makes the dandruf fall.

Also there is dandruf appearing in my mustash, my eyebrows and my beard. I am checking my face and

washing it all the time so nobody may notice.


My stool is darker, I mean you can say blackish brownish. With something small black grains.very small. 1/4th the size of a rice grain.
I dont know what it is that is coming out. As I am taking very little food these days. Mostly

apples, pears and grapes or green salad. And some time I take one meal a day. And green tea daily, I am unable to

understand what it is. I just notice it today.

My stomach is definitly not good. I feel bloated. I have very less bowel movement.
Max one time a day. Some day none. But thats becasue I eat very less i guess.

My toungue is darn white with a thick white layer. I keeping taking water the whole day.
But I donno what is wrong with my tounge.



I have taken the pitcures of my patches which my cell phone. And I will post its as soon as I get

home or may be tommorow.

Thats all I have for the time being.

Please advise ASAP. I know its gona take some good time, but please help me.I am alone here in KSA with no homeohelp around.
