Eczema on arm folds- 6 year old daughter

My daughter (6.5 years old) has eczema rashes on her arm folds. Till last year she had eczema on leg folds as well. Dr. Yogesh at abchomeopathy helped me treat her by prescribing Calcarea carbonica starting from a low dose of 12c all the way upto the dose of 1M. Her leg rahes are all better ( just some black marks left) but her rashes keep appearing back on her arm folds.

Her arm fold rashes become red, bumpy, oozing out a yellow sticky liquid that dries up to form a crust. Her rashes calm down after a day or so of Calcarea Carb 1M dose, but they reappear after a week.

It's been almost a year since I have been using homeopathy but still getting very frustrated as the rashes keep coming back. I have read on the forum about using Graphites but never tried it.

I would like a doctor to recommend an alternative treatment plan for my daughter.
Looking forward to hear back soon.

Exactly how old she was when she got eczema?

Who has asthma in the family? Her Mom, dad, grandma, grandpa?

Is there any kind of oozing from eruptions? Please describe their color and type

Priya had eczema rashes on her cheeks when she was 6-8 months old. Those rashes got better when she started dairy milk instead of the baby powdered milk. She also had a lot of vomiting episodes from when she was born till last year. Even now, she has vomiting episodes when she gets stuff and has coughing.
Then around age 3, she started having these rashes on her leg folds, buttock creases and arm folds. I used allopathic antihistamine creams for almost 2.5 years. With those creams the rashes would come better for 2-3 days and come right back. Then last year I started homeopathy and her leg rashes are all better, she would itch them may be once a month.

Her grandfather ( paternal side) has asthma issues. Her dad also has skin rashes and was told by the allopathic that he has a high tendency of developing asthma. Her dad is going through immunotherapy to cure asthma related issues.

The oozing from Priya's rashes is yellow in color, it has thick, glue like texture and dries up to a crust.

Let me know if you need more info. before recommending a medication.

What do you think of Graphite in treating this rash?
I have read a lot about it and it seems to address a lot of issues that my daughter has.
I am not an expert, so don't want to give any medication without consultation.
Please suggest.
Simran.
 
Simran25 7 years ago
Describe her nature, precisely?

Does she catch cold easily?

Is she constipated most of the times?

and what color is her tongue?

She is normally a happy, accommodating child. She adjusts well with her twin sister who is more stubborn about things. Priya tries to find alternatives to stay happy and keep others happy. Sometimes her behavior is more mature than her age. She loves to help me around the house. She really likes when I am around her. She is very talkative, a very good dancer.

Cold: she does not catch cold easily, but when she does, her cold gets better in a couple of days. Whereas, when her twin sister catches cold it can last her 2-3 weeks.

Constipation: she is not constipated most of the times. Her poops are formed like all normal adults.

Tongue: her tongue has some white in the middle in the morning.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Simran25 7 years ago

Zady101 7 years ago

Please let me know.

Simran25 7 years ago
For best results, u may give it on empty stomach keeping 30 mins gap with toothpaste, food,
 
Zady101 7 years ago
Also, I have been applying vaseline on her rashes for years now. I don't know if it really helps.
Is there another better cream that I can use on her rashes?
Please recommend,
Simran.
 
Simran25 7 years ago
It's ok. Please continue.
 
Zady101 7 years ago
I gave antimonium crudum dose to Priya yesterday 6/7/13 and this is how her arm looks today. She is still scratching a lot, it is still very itchy.

Eczema is coming out. Without a doubt this is the right remedy.

Now give one more dose from the second cup so that aggravations subside, then we will proceed gently.

Prepare two cups of 200 ml each.
Dissolve pellets in 1st cup, stir vigorously once pellets dissolve. Take half-spoon from the first cup to the second, stir 2nd cup again with a spoon

Give her one spoon from the 2nd cup, the aggravations will subside within 24 hours.

Is she greatly irritated after the remedy?

So do the medication (5-6prllets) need to be dissolved in both cups to start with and then I add one spoon from cup 1 to cup 2? Also, do I give her all of cup 2 or just one spoon?

Secondly, does it have to early in the morning or anytime?
Please let me know.
Simran.
 
Simran25 7 years ago
Also it seems to me that she is really itchy. Yesterday in school she had itching over her lips ( right around upper lip). I applied some boroline to her upper lip and it is better today.
But today, I have to ask her to stop itching every 5-10 minutes. She is even scratching on spots where her eczema has already improved long back ( like her leg folds).

Simran25 7 years ago
You have to add pellets only in the first cup.

Once the pellets dissolve, stir them well and then you have to take half-spoon from the first cup to the second cup. Stir the second cup.
Give one spoon to her from the second cup.

The body will become worse initially, especially the extremities.

You have to tell me how she is feeling after the remedy - her mood, temperament, energy levels.
 
Zady101 7 years ago
Also, do I need to give her the medicine empty stomach early morning or anytime during the day?
 
Simran25 7 years ago
Can you please update me about her mood, temperament, energy levels at present, then I will be able to suggest appropriate time for intervention
 
Zady101 7 years ago
She is behaving normal, just like always. I haven't noticed any change in her energy levels either. She is playing with her sister. It does seem like that she is even less hungrier than before.
Simran.
 
Simran25 7 years ago
Yes please give it in morning and wait for aggravations to subside.

I will review case carefully and then proceed.

You could email me in case of any doubts. You can reach my email by clicking on my username.
 
Zady101 7 years ago
Zady,
I gave Priya the dose that you prescribed this morning. Her rashes are still itchy and she is still scratching at other places like in her leg folds, other arm( that has some rash), on the nose, face. Look at the picture below of her arm from 1 hour ago.
Please recommend the next step.
Thank you,
Simran.
