7 year old boy bed wetting, eczema and constipation

Hello dear homeopaths:)

A friend of mine has a 7 year-old son who is still bed-wetting at night. He also has problems with skin and digestion - exzema and constipation.
he is a Very strong-willed and Very independent boy. The main reason my friend wants to be solved is his mood swings and frustration at his older brothers (they are very different in character - very calm and peaceful boys).
all ideas and help are highly appreaciated:)
thank you very much!
I am not surte what othe rinformation to provide for the better picture - but will be very happy to do so! thank you

I'll happy to fill in intake forms - just not sure which one to use...
or is it a too complicated case?

have I done something wrong?
IS my post being ignored or it's a difficult case and no one wants it?

There is not enough information here for anyone to decide one way or the other at this time.

I will post some questions you can begin by answering, and we can see where it leads.

1. Describe in detail the main problem - includ if relevent -appearance, colour, shape, symptoms, behaviour etc. Describe such things as what happens, when it happens etc.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc.

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed.

5. Go through each symptom or problem he/she has, doing the same thing (answering questions 1-4), even if the problem does not seem connected to any others.

6. When did each problem start? What happened around that same time?

7. What is his/her character like? What kinds of fears or anxieties does he/she have? What makes him/her irritable? Flesh out his/her personality.

8. What foods does he/she crave or hate? What drinks does he/she crave or hate? Is he/she sensitive to anything he/she eats or drinks?

9. How does the weather or season affect him/her?

10. How have all his/her milestones gone? Does he/she have any issue with speaking, learning, walking, climbing etc

11. How is he/she with socializing with others?

12. What is his/her bowel habit like? Any problems? Any odours, strange colours or stool shapes?

13. Where does he/she sweat? Does it have a smell or does it stain a particular colour?

14. History of illnesses in his/her life?

15. Has he/she reacted to any vaccines or medical drugs?

16. Problems with sleep? Position he/she sleeps in? Nightmares or any dreams he/she talks about?

1. Describe in detail the main problem - includ if relevent -appearance, colour, shape, symptoms, behaviour etc. Describe such things as what happens, when it happens etc.

He has an eczema rash over most of his body – stomach, spots on his back, forearms, elbows, legs, bottom. The rash looks a bit like ringworm but it isn’t ringworm, bumpy round patches. He also gets round patches on his tongue, I have googled this and it looks similar to something called geographic tongue – not sure if it is this or not??

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

Itchy and probably irritable if I tracked it I am sure that I’d notice a correlation between the two.

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc.

We have had the skin testing done at the doctors and he doesn’t appear to be allergic to anything however we have noticed that when we eats anything with the colouring 160b (annatto) it gets worse. This is in ice cream and some margarines etc.

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed.

Nothing really as he doesn’t get terribly bothered by it.

5. Go through each symptom or problem he/she has, doing the same thing (answering questions 1-4), even if the problem does not seem connected to any others.

1. Describe in detail the main problem - includ if relevent -appearance, colour, shape, symptoms, behaviour etc. Describe such things as what happens, when it happens etc.

Up until very recently A. has wet the bed – although he hasn’t wet it for about two weeks – amazing!!

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

Just a very heavy sleeper  but no doubt the urine/wet bed does aggravate his rash.

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc.

1. Describe in detail the main problem - includ if relevent -appearance, colour, shape, symptoms, behaviour etc. Describe such things as what happens, when it happens etc.

He has very big mood swings and tantrums – very strong personality but also has a few issues with his temper that I think are related to everything else.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

Anger, frustration, physical lashing out, shouting, crying etc

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc.

Notice that he has an immediate reaction/hyperactive after having something with a lot of food colouring ie twisties, orange choc chip ice cream

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed.

He has also had problems with his bowel movements – constipated, only just making it to the toilet because he holds on, and on.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

I think he just gets irritable and of course doesn’t associate the discomfort and irritability to the fact that he just needs to sit on the toilet. Always been a very busy and active child with a poor appetite so these also would contribute to the bowel issue however he has had issues since I first introduced solids as a baby.

6. When did each problem start? What happened around that same time?

These problems all started when he was very little. Constipated from the time solids introduced. Terrible teething rash – made his little cheeks bleed. Eczema followed as he got a bit older.

7. What is his/her character like? What kinds of fears or anxieties does he/she have? What makes him/her irritable? Flesh out his/her personality.

A. is a very social little boy, very outgoing and chatty. He particularly likes to talk with adults. He loves spending time with his dad and being hands on, loves fishing, collecting wood with dad – very task oriented. He is very popular at school and a great student. Always likes to be on time when we go out, very much a ‘rules’ boy, and has a great memory.

I guess he does get a bit anxious about being on time, and following rules ie if the teacher tells him to bring something or do something he will get quite worked up if he can’t get it done.

He can get very frustrated by his older brothers – they are twins and so always have each others back and of course he is on his own. This frustration manifests itself in great big wobblies – however is this just normal sibling rivalry.

He can rule the house with his moods. Right up until the time he was about 6 years old he would have a tantrum at dinner time – refusing to come to the table and issues with what was for dinner. This will still happen.

It can take him a couple of hours to calm down/come round from a tantrum or a disappointment. He can get really upset saying things like ‘I am going to kill myself’ which seems pretty extreme for a 7 year old.

And in amongst all of that he is so helpful and caring and sensitive. He doesn’t like to see anyone miss out and very keen to share with people. He was such a smiley and happy baby. Very very busy right through to the age of about 5years old – quite unpredictable – but his charismatic personality balanced him out. And still does however he is very hard to control. Not of course that I want to control him but just to have him be compliant would be great! And I do wonder if everything is more connected than I realise. If I change his diet will everything else come right?

8. What foods does he/she crave or hate? What drinks does he/she crave or hate? Is he/she sensitive to anything he/she eats or drinks?

He hates fizzy drink so will only really drink water/milk or orange juice – predominantly water.
He has always been a picky eater.
He won’t eat eggs, most veges,
He will eat broccoli, carrots, dairy products, meat, bread, pasta, fruit – and anything sweet 
As I mentioned he does have a reaction to food colouring.

9. How does the weather or season affect him/her?

Doesn’t seem to affect him.

10. How have all his/her milestones gone? Does he/she have any issue with speaking, learning, walking, climbing etc

He was slow to roll over as a baby – started rolling occasionally at 6months – and wasn’t really rolling until around 8months, walked at 13/14 months and was at standard from there on. Very very good communicator – talked from an early age. He was around 7.15lbs when he was born and gained well as a baby but then his growth slowed down and he has always been at the bottom of the chart for his age.

11. How is he/she with socializing with others?

Generally very good, will clash with other strong personalities of children his own age.

12. What is his/her bowel habit like? Any problems? Any odours, strange colours or stool shapes?
As mentioned – doesn’t like going to the toilet. Doesn’t seem to be able to stop for long enough to sit, lol. But also no doubt related to constipation etc.

13. Where does he/she sweat? Does it have a smell or does it stain a particular colour?

Doesn’t’ sweat yet.

14. History of illnesses in his/her life?

He has actually been a very healthy child apart from all of this.

15. Has he/she reacted to any vaccines or medical drugs?

No.

16. Problems with sleep? Position he/she sleeps in? Nightmares or any dreams he/she talks about?

No – just a very heavy sleeper.

17. How is he/she with animals?

Good.

18. How is he/she with adults or strangers?

Very good – great conversationalist.

19. What is the family history of illness and disease?

My father died of a heart attack at age 47, had his first heart attack in his early 40’s followed by a quadruple bypass. We also have a family history of depression however I have never suffered from it. My sister and I both suffer from eczema and I have urticaria (hives) when exposed to the cold – so if I jump into a cold pool I will come up in hives – or if I hold a cold can my hand will swell up.

20. What was the pregnancy like? Any odd symptoms or feelings that disappeared once he/she was born?

I was very angry during the early stages of pregnancy due to hormone changes etc – big mood swings etc – these continued until he was about 6months old and then I seemed to calm down. I was never angry with him, lol :)
