i used to take okacet anti allergic every 2-3 days till a year back.
8 months back i started homeopathic treatment.It did make my rhinitis attacks dissapear but eczema still remained.Also,the doctor did not tell me the remedy names he tried on me.
20 days back i started to treat myself using homeopathy.I started with Ars-6c.after 2 weeks, i realised it was causing my skin to itch on different areas and very violentl,my salp was itching a lot too.and i was still getting rhinitis attacks.i was taking 3 pellets thrice a day.
Then i switched to allium cepa-30.It stopped my rhinitis attacks with no side effects,but eczema was still the same.so recently started taking 2 pellets diluted in water of sulphur-30 with it.had a rhinitis attacks(with all stages combined), but subdued, only 2 days after starting sulphur.maybe it happened due to overdose or maybe aggravation due to sulphur i am not sure.

Hello Mr. Kadwa,

Its been 9 days since i stopped my remedies.Given below are the observations.

1:My rhinitis has been in complete control.Have not had any attacks,did not take anti allergics(used to take 1 every 3 days before).My allergic rhinitis seems to have been controlled.

2:My dry itchy skin is still persisting.i9n these 9 days, i got some new itchy areas on both my forearms, but they have reduced in the last 3-4 days.My skin has come to the stage it was at before i started homeopathy.Its dry, itchy,scalp is itchy too,and the itchy areas are increasing very slowly.

3:I applied Efaderm(a strong moisturiser) on my forearms one day.that day and a day after that i felt some acrid discharge behind my nose in the throat.this is exactly how my rhinitis attacks would start in the past.the cream controlled itching in those areas but it almost rbought about a rhinitis attack.THEREFORE, i somehow believe my eczema and allergic rhinitis are connected.When one is active the other is not.And i think this i have noticed in the past also.

4:hot water baths help a lot with the itching.But still my eczema is still existant with very itchy skin which aggravated after MIDNIGHT.

forgot to tell you before that i have always had dark circles around my eyes.

These are all the observations.Awaiting a reply,

allergy+Eczema last decade

I have one more question.
1: Should i stop taking remey for rhinitis altogether?

2:If and when my allergic rhinitis symptoms start to return, in what dosage and frequency should i take the remedy(which is either allium cepa or sulphur)?

allergy+Eczema last decade
Please take three doses of Calc Carb 200 as follows and report back after 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
kadwa last decade
ok, 3 doses-2 pellets each. i've taken them as you said.Will report back after 15 days.thanks!
allergy+Eczema last decade
xtremely sorry for the late reply.Actually i was out of town and did not have connectivity to the internet either.Following are my oservations:
1:First 2 days i felt a considerable improvement in my skin(itching reduced)
2:Then slowly the skin itched as normal but after around the 10th day i felt the itching reducing very slightly.

3:I was on a trip around the 15th day, got a rhintis attack, so had to take 2 Okacet anti allergics.I know this impedes the curing process but i had to do it.

4:At this point i feel my skin is improving so i would like to try this medicine again(on your prescription).Also, i will be t home for another 3 months.

5:Also please let me know what i should do in case of another rhinitis attack!

Thank you!!
allergy+Eczema last decade
Please repeat calc carb 200 as earlier by taking three doses and wait for 15 days.
It should help you overall including your rhinitis.
In case of acute attack you may take 2 pellets each of ferrum phos 6x and kali mur 6x together every hour and see whether it helps.
kadwa last decade
Ok i'll do the same.here are 2 important observations i would like to run by you

1:Last 10 days i have been taking alcohol almost everyday.My skin felt smooth and much better(almost no itching).As soon as i returned home(stopped alcohol intake and got a good 15-18 hours sleep), my skin started showing the normal symptoms of itch and roughness.Maybe body heat has somethign to do with it.

I'll report back after 15 days.

Dear Mr.Kadwa,
Given below are the observations

1:I had 1 rhinitis attack.I took 2pellets each of the prescribed remedies twice(at interval of 2 hrs).They worked!Besides that, i have not taken anything, so my rhinitis seems to be improving

2:My skin is improving too.But that improvement is there only when i do not eat wheat products.I was suspicious that i am allergic to something in wheat(maybe gluten).I tried laying off it for some days, and experienced much lesser itching and smoother skin.But when i had wheat(even twice a day) i felt a rougher skin and itching return to normal.I tried this 3-4 times with the same results.

allergy+Eczema last decade
Please don't take any homeopathic remedy for the time being. You may take the tissue salts on need. Please report back after 15 days.
kadwa last decade
Ok, and should i lay off wheat products entirely in this span too?
allergy+Eczema last decade
This is your decision, please take it on your own. It is difficult to ask someone to go off wheat!!
kadwa last decade
Hello Sir,
In the past 15-20 days i haven't felt the need to take the tissue salts even once.
As far as my skin is concerned, now i am very sure the itching is related to gluten intolerance, the test results of which will be available soon.

allergy+Eczema last decade
Please don't take any remedy for the time being.
kadwa last decade
In the past 3 days i have noticed a slight return in my symptoms. I took the tissue salts 2 days back. The burning in my eyes has returned as well.

allergy+Eczema last decade
If there is a significant relapse in your symptoms, please take three doses of calc carb 200 as earlier and report back after 15 days.
