Hair loss due to Accutane

Hi all,

I am new to homeopathy but am aware of its great benefits. I am currently going to school to obtain my ND and am extremely interested in homeopathy as well.

Some background information:
I took Accutane over a year ago for around 5 months. I did not have any side effects until about 2-3 months after getting off the medicine. That is when I started to experience diffuse thinning throughout my entire head. My nails now have ridges in them also. My ND thinks that I have a malabsorption issue and put me on HCL. I have not seen any changes thus far. I am wondering what homeopathic remedy would be right for me. I have breakouts on the face (minor) which usually start as really small white bumps and stay for a long time until they become inflamed. I have hair loss on my head, eyebrows, eyelashes and pretty much everywhere all over my body. And lastly, my nails have deep horizontal ridges in them.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Nux Vomica 200 as follows and see how that affects in next 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, 1 drop 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.

Thank you for the detailed reply. I have ordered some Arnica 30c in ethanol and plan on using it as a wet dose just before bed based on Dr. Liveras posts. I will get some Nux Vomica also. They carry Boirion products at my local health food store but the concentration is 200CK. Is this the same as C?

Thank you
