my husband has atlets feet since i know him(20 years), dry skin on heels and between toes . then since 8 years ago he has some dry skin on his hands because he is doing constraction job so we thought he is allergic to dust and sheetrock and it was periods when he had like small bubbles on his hands which where watery inside and he was braking it and skin was peeling and dry.so he was using clotrimasol, cortison diferent creams and pills to kill yeast and fungus infection,it would be better for time than worse again. also his nails and toenails were damaged with fungus.as today his skin on hands and feet in ok, but he has very bad large toenails on both feet, its dark yellow thick nails and he say it hurts .i read here on forum to treat it with vicks rub so he did few times and nails got darker and it looks like it may work, but does he need to take some medicine too? also he has few plantar warts on his large finger and small toe and he often gets herpes on his lips. he has gray hair since he is 22 and last 6-7 years he is loosing hair just on one spot on the top of his head, but dont know if that all is conected any way, so please advise

Please ask him to take SILICEA 30C two doses a day for some 7 to 10 days.

After some 15 days, please update the status here so that the right potency could be given for a sustained cure. It is expected that the pain will get relieved in 10 days if he responds to silicea.

One dose would typically be 3 drops of remedy in 10 ml of water slowly sipped up in empty stomach and clean mouth. Do not allow him to take any food or water one hour before or after taking the doses.

thanks for responding. just want to check before we start remedy, he doesnt have pain now, as i said he is using vicks for a few days now its helping a lot, and he was able to clean and cut off the thick parts on the toenails so its not pressing when he wears shoes ( specially cleats for playing soccer), so its no pain now. is SILICEA 30C for pain or its for virus or infection to be killed in his body?

Silicea will create a similar symptom in him that his immuno-system will become stronger to fight the infection on the first place.

The point of treating a person homeopathically is to strengthen his system within.

If he stops using vicks, he may get the infection again! So, does it mean he should keep applying vicks on his toes throught his life?

The fact the he suffers from toe-nail infection and you or I do not, show that there's something wrong with his immuno-system on the first place. This needs to be set right so that problems don't recur.

thanks for your patience at explaining everything, its make a lot of sense with his immune system, he gets different problems in his body all the time(skin rash, wounds, joint pain)even he is a strong and fit guy.sorry for being annoing ,just would be easyer to give him medicine in tablets or pellets if thats ok and if the effect will be the same you think?

You can give SILICEA in liquid or in pellet form. One dose would typically be 3 to 4 pellets chewed under the tongue in empty stomach and clean mouth. In case you give him liquid doses, one dose would be 3 drops of remedy in 10 ml of water slowly sipped up.

stop using vicks for the time being and continue the remedy for some days. when you see a change after about 10 day or earlier, come back to report status.
