Help for eczema recurrence!

Dear Doctors

I was treated for Eczema on my legs (upper legs, just below and above knees, and breasts) last year and it was completely gone except scars. Last week, I had diarrhea for almost 3 weeks b'coz of outside food, and treated with homeopathy medicines (sulphur, ars alb, Mer sol, aloe soc, MP,FP, NP) with no relief and had to take a course of Norflox TZ for 5 days. Now, I am fine with respect to stomach complaints. But, for the past 2 to 3 days I noticed Eczema eruptions on the old scars, only on upper legs. Not sure if it is because of the dry weather here or the effects of the medications I took.

Can you please advice on this as I am not sure if it is right to go to the same homeopath.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Try sulpher LM 01 potency,1 TSF in Morning and Merc sol LM 01 potency,1TSF at night for few days.You can gradually increase the potency like 02..03... according to the improvement of eczematous condition.

It seems that the eczema is thrown to surface by the homeopathic remedies you have taken. It is not clear whether it was earlier treated by homeopathic remedies.
There is no point in seeking advice for reaction of homeopathic remedies from a homeopath who gives combination remedies.

Dear Zahid

Thanks for your reply. I can get only LM 1 potencies. Is that okay to try them in LM 01 potencies. Also, pls can you explain LM 01, 02 03 potencies? I have little confusion.

Also, Please let me know what is TSF

Dear Dr. Kadwa

Thanks for the reply. Yes, eczema is thrown to surface. Does this mean it was not cured completely but suppressed? Earlier it was treated by homeopathy (by the same homeopath who treated me now for my diarrhea), after aggravation, I had to opt for ayurvedic medications which gave great relief and disappearance of eczema (I thought it got cured). I dont remember what homeopathic and ayurvedic meds I took. Your suggestion please?

Dr. Zahid suggests Sulphur LM01 potency and Merc Sol LM01 Potency.

It is quite difficult to cure any symptom by giving combination remedies. Otherwise also it is necessary to follow food restrictions for those who are susceptible to skin breakouts.

Please copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may be worked out.

Dear Dr. Kadwa

I noticed my eczema eruptions started subsiding on their own from past 2 days. Very less to no itching. Still, I started the Calc Carb 200 dose today (18.11.11) morning.
Any change is needed?

I forgot to mention 2 important things.
1.. I have a painful corn in my Right big toe, which is there for the past 1 yr. Not taken any medication. THe same toe has very hard, dry, cracks.

2.. I am in a very stressful marriage. I dont share my emotions, I suppress them. I know, this is the cause of all my physical sufferings.
seesp last decade
Please go ahead with calc as suggested earlier and report back.
kadwa last decade
Thank you

I took the third dose of calc carb 200 today morning. I will report the changes after 15 days.

I was taking Alfalfa malt till I had diarrhea, I had good appetite and little weight gain when taking that. Adviced to take it for weight gain and to improve appetite. I lost weight due to diarrhea. I have normal appetite now. Do I have to continue Alfalfa malt?
seesp last decade
Please don't take alfalfa malt.

Dear Dr. Kadwa

It's 9 days now after I took calc carb 200 on 18.11.11. I would like to inform you the few changes I have noticed. For the past 2 days I am having very painful breasts and shoulders, even turning or touching increase the pain. All the muscles of breasts and shoulders are aching. I usually get little pain in the breasts just 2-3 days before and during menses, but this time it is very bad, I have never had this kind of pain before.

I also have painful, pus filled pimples on forehead and lower jaw. Normally, I get 1 or 2 small pimples, rarely painful ones.

All the above are effects of Calc carb?

One more problem I like to mention is worms. I have itching in the anal, on and off, not daily. This has started during diarrhea. Yesterday it was more. I washed the area with dettol. No itching today. Should I take any medicine for this?

I am traveling next week. I will report further changes on 2nd December (15th day after taking medicine) as you mentioned. Should I have to take any medicines with me?

If your breast pain doesn't go away on its own within 2 days, you should take a single dose of Sepia 200. One dose means 2 pills or 2 drops.
You should have Calc 200, Sepia 200, Antimonium Crud 200, Hepar Sulph 200 and Lycopodium 200 with you when you travel. The remedy will be suggested only after knowing your symptoms. So you should just have these remedies with you and please take any remedy only if you are instructed to do so.

Logging in to observe progress.

Dear Dr. Kadwa

I am back from my tour. I did not have access to internet during my tour, so I could not report the symptoms to you on 2.12.11.

I was in a coastal area last week. I noticed following changes.

1. No sign of eczema eruptions/ itching. The eruptions started subsiding even before taking Calc Carb. Is there a way to get rid of the old scars of eczema?

2. I had my periods on Nov 29th (bit early) Last month also, it was early (due to homeo meds?) on Oct 30th, previous period was on Oct 1st. Usually, it is 30 to 35 days cycle.

Usually, the bleeding is dark, thick. This time, I feel, it is thinner and lighter than usual.

3. Overall my skin looked great. No dryness, it was smooth, soft, supple. Even my ichthyosis and wrinkles started disappearing. Not sure if it was because of the climate in coastal area. Is there a way to retain the same type of skin even in hilly areas and areas like Bangalore?

4. I noticed some boils/ pimples on my scalp. In 2 days they gone. Hairfall is as usual. I have very thin hairs, balding on both sides of forehead.

5. Very loose breasts and inelastic skin. I felt tight skin and breasts during the tour. Coastal areas overall makes me feel good, especially my skin. I have very low self-esteem because of ichthyosis in my legs and loose breasts. Is there a way to change these?

6. not noticed gum bleeding this whole month.

7. No itching in the anus.

8. Corn in right big toe is still there, but no pain or burning sensation. Deep cracks and hard skin still there in the right bigtoe.

Please let me have your suggestions and advice for taking further treatment.

seesp last decade
Please don't take any remedy and report back after 15 days. Whether your energy level has improved after taking calc carb?
kadwa last decade
Okay doctor, I am not taking any medication. I will report back after 15 days, and will inform you if I notice any changes in between.

I dont find any difference in my energy level. Feeling fine except in stressful situations.

I forgot to mention that I still have large stools which I feel unusual, but I dont have any discomfort. I normally have small stools once on waking up.

Hello Dr. Kadwa.. i have been busy with the guests at home for the past week, so couldn't report to you about the changes..

Doctor, I had a severe sneezing, noseblock,and temperature lastweek; So took Allium cepa 1 dose and CP 6x and Sil 12x 2 pills each 1 dose.

I am feeling normal. leuckorrhea 1 or 2 days, not much like earlier.. Hair thinning is still there. Right corn is still painful. No breast pain, about to get my periods. No pimples yet.

Losing weight, I think, due to lot of mental stress. Was feeling good and had put on little weight when I went to Kerala in the beginning of this month..

Stool is not as large as earlier, but not of the usual size.. No gum bleeding. Dryness is reduced.. Skin is slightly better. Skin inelasticity is yet to get better..

Thank you doctor
seesp last decade
Please don't any remedy and report back after 15 days.
kadwa last decade
Ok doctor,

I dont take any medicines. But that was an acute and sudden sneezing and noseblock.. Also had temperature. So I had no other option.

If I could contact you on that day, I would have taken meds according to your advice.. Net was not working that day. Can I have your phone number doctor? So that in such emergencies, I can take your advice.
seesp last decade
It is fine to take medicine for emergencies from your local practitioner. There is no need to take any remedy right now for your chronic problems.

Hello doctor, wish you and family a very happy new year 2012.

I noticed the following changes doctor:

1. I had periods on 27.12.11. This time no thigh pain (which started from my menarche), no breast tenderness, no shoulder pain. Few small pimples on face were there. Normal bleeding, no clot like things..

Dry eruptions on inner side of knees, very small portion, on the old scars. Started before periods, subsiding now..

2. Hair loss is increased this past week.. Coz of increased stress??

3. Skin is dry.. Espeicially lips and feet are badly dry and cracked..

4. Becoming thinner.. Not able to eat much because of stressful situation.

5. Ichthyosis is still present.

6. After taking calc carb, I started having vivid dreams, both pleasant and unpleasant. No scarry dreams.. Earlier, I never remember dreams.. Sleep is slightly disturbed this past week.. Usually, I have good sleep.

7. Noticed craving for cream/ cheese, this past month.

8. Inelastic, loose, and flabby skin and loose breasts remain. Find little improvement.. Any particular diet to increase inelasticity and loose breasts??

I am so conscious about my loose skin and breasts and ichthyosis.. My thin stature, sunken eyes and cheeks make me very anxious, does not allow me to socialize.. Help me doctor.

Appreciate your valuable suggestions doctor.
