Proper dosage of Sulphur 30c? For skin condition?


My name is Kevin.

New to the forum here. But I have been reading for a few weeks now.

I have recently been disgnosed with 'Dermographic Excema' by my dermotologist. It is a condition in which your skin produces itchy hives when pressure is applied. Anyone who has had this condition know how terribly depressing and aweful it is. I can literally write my name on my skin just by scratching it and within minutes it pops up in the form of a hive.

I am a 28 years old male. In good health.

I developed this condition 14 months ago after a 1 week course of anitibiotics for a cyst I had behind my ear. The cyst was cured, but ever since I have had this condition. Almost like someone flipped a switch and turned dermographism on. Just a few weeks ago I finally went to a dermotologist who gave me the diagnosis.

SO, after much reasearch I was directed to purchase a bottle of 'Sulphur 30c' with 250 tablets from the Vitamineshoppe.

I am not sure how many and how often per day I am supposed to take them. And if there is anything else I should take.

Thanks! Great forum!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You are taking a huge risk using our medicines this way, especially a powerful remedy like Sulphur. Sulphur is known to produce severe and long lasting aggravations, especially if the whole case is not taken into account when it is prescribed. It may also produce side effects that can be difficult to naturally recover from. There have been many people posting here in the past about Sulphur and its side effects, and they have had to undergo proper homoeopathic treatment to have them removed.

Dosage is always decided on a case by case basis, looking at the degree of vitality of the patient, the amount of suppression in the case, the level of sensitivity,and the amount of tissue changes. When circumstances call for it you may only use a single dose, or you may in fact prescribe multiple doses. There is no standard dosing system in homoeopathy. Just in the same way our medicines are prescribed, there is a high level of individualization in all aspects.

The SAFEST method is to prescribe one dose only, and assess after a week or two to see if anything dangerous happens. Remedies can aggravate current symptoms, bring up old symptoms, stimulate pathology into life even if it is currently dormant, create new symptoms, stir up a healing crisis that needs to be managed correctly. Depending on what happens, a second dose can be given or a decision may need to be made about changing the remedy.

If multiple doses are taken, they should never be taken as 'dry' doses (pillules straight into the mouth) as this is the least effective and most aggravating method of taking remedies. You should always use the Split Dosing method which is safer and more able to be adjusted to suit your specific responses.


Firstly, you need to create a separate dosing bottle. Get a bottle with a dropper, 15-30mls in size, and fill it with a mixture of water and alcohol (5 parts to 1 part). Dissolve 2 granules or 2 drops of the medicine you bought from the pharmacy into this mixture. Your doses will be made from this bottle.

Hit the bottle firmly against the palm of your hand, or another elastic surface like a book. It should be a firm hit not a tap. 2 hits is enough to begin with, and should not be increased unless it is clear that it is needed. The water in this bottle will 'remember' the number of times you have hit it, so that subsequent doses will be stronger (necessary to overcoming the resistance of your disease).

Place 1 drop into an amount of water - I may start with anything from 1/4-1 full cup (62ml-250ml) depending on the sensitivity of the patient. Stir thoroughly and take 1 teaspoon into the mouth. Throw the rest of the cup away.

This is one dose. Repeat doses would be started from the 2 hits on the bottle.

Each step of this process can be adjusted to reduced aggravation or to increase the effect of the medicine. In order to be able to do this, it is important to measure each step (count the hits, the drops, measure the water etc).

The real trick with sucessful homoeopathic prescribing is to choose the specific single medicine from the over 5000 we have, to suit all your symptoms, all your conditions, your history, your mental and emotional state. Only then will you get a genuine and long lasting cure without side effects.

Hello David,

Thanks for replying.

First, let me clarify that intend to take nothing without getting some guidance first.

If there is something besides Sulphur you think I should take for Dermographism please let me know. Sulphur was recommended to me by the symptom checker here, and the bottle says 'For rashes and hives.'

As for my health and state of mind;
-I am 28 white male.
-In good health
-No diabetes/no medications etc.
-I live in New England, USA.
-I am in a good state of mind, except for being depressed about having dermographism.
-I have no allergies, as I tested negative for all common allergens.
-This condition was triggered by antibiotic use.

Please advise on what to try,

The program on this site is only for simple acutes. It cannot make chronic or complex prescriptions. Part of the reason for that is that choosing the right symptom, and interpreting it into what we call a rubric (a standardized format for that particular symptom eg. headache worse for movement) actually requires knowledge of our philosophy of prescribing.

Homoeopathy is quite difficult to practice. When used for true accutes (injuries, epidemics, poisonings) programs like the Remedy Finder here can be useful. First Aid prescribing can be done by just about anyone with a little knowledge.

Chronic prescribing (everything else) is quite another matter altogether. An initial case-taking session with a homoeopath takes 1-2 hours, with a huge amount of information being gathered about many things the seem unrelated to the primary complaint.

We never prescribe on the name of the condition. Any remedy can cure any named condition, if the peculiar or individual symptoms agree.

For example, Arnica can cure rashes where the patient is terrified of people coming too close and touching the rash, Lac-caninum can cure a rash where the patient feels dirty and disgusting and that people look down on them for it, Cantharis can cure a rash where the skin is burning like it is on fire and the patient is in a frenzy, Arsenicum can cure a rash where the patient is restless and convinced that the skin condition is actually c-ancer.

It might be easier to show you an example of homoeopathic case-taking. This is a link to two of my own cases from clinic.
