Would be so grateful for help

My lovely daughter has full blown poison oak mainly on face and genitals. It is day 3.
Its hot, itchy, red and her eyes are swollen closed. You can see the golden crust just beginning to form on her cheeks. She has diarrhea and a stomach ache. She doesn't want to eat, which never happens.
Please help us relieve her and enter the new year feeling better...

I am very far from any homeopathic source, which would be closed today anyway.

I gave her 1 dose of Rhus Tox 200ck out of sheer desperation to relieve her suffering.

Please advise.
I also have Rhus Tox 1M
Arsenican Album 30C
Suphur 30C
and Arnica 30X on hand, which I have
read are some possible remedies for this.

Please advise. Thank you so much.
Happy New Year, Happy New Moon and Many Blessings. ♥

Right now, only Rhus Tox will work from your list.

Rhus Tox 200

Dissolve 2 drops or 5 pills in 3 tablespoons water, stir a few times and drink. Do this every 2 hours for a total of 5 times in a day (5 doses). For 1 day only. Update tomorrow on progress made.

Since you have taken 1 dose, so you should now give 4 doses only.

After midnight here.
She's had 4 doses. It appears to grow worse. She can't sleep.
Eyes and face more swollen, much bigger. Still spreading. The itching makes her feel crazy and frantic. She also periodically kind of shakes and gets cold inside even though she's burning hot.
These are very high doses. And I know that the water makes it stronger.
Can this make it worse?
I'm not sure we can do the 5th dose.
Please advise.

Feel cold but where the rashes are (especially face) is burning hot. A burning dryness
Sticky itchy residue leaking from rash.
Very swollen face and eyes so swollen they are closed.
In crotch area swollen 4 times it size.

Feeling desperate, frantic, irritated and sometimes angry.
Lingering feeling of needing to urinate most of the time.

Can't sleep, its 1 am now here.
California time.

Clematis Erecta 30C

Buy a small mineral or spring water bottle, around 250 ml in size. Normally you will find it in a convenience store marketed as a kid's mineral water or something.

Empty 25% of water, so that bottle has 75% of water left.

Pour 2 drops/5 pills of the remedy in the bottle. Let them dissolve on their own.

Give the bottle 8 hard hits; this is done by holding the bottle in your right hand and hitting the bottom of the bottle against your left hand 8 times. Take out one capful of water and drink. This is one dose.

Take a dose every 3 hours in a day for a total 4 times (4 doses). Do this for 2 days and update me.

Thank you for your reply.

I have been searching all morning and have called up to 3 hours away from my house and no one carries that remedy.
Even Whole Foods, the biggest health food chain does not carry it.

To order it online would take several days. I am new to this area so I do not know what other avenue to take to get Clematis Erecta 30C.

I do feel like although she is still swollen and her eyes are completely swollen shut, she did eventually sleep last night.

Her face is oozing and getting the golden crust and she is calmer today. Seems nighttime is much worse.

So itching is her biggest issue. I am guessing oozing is a good thing.

Not sure what to do.

Please seek medical help. This will soon spiral out of hands. As far as this remedy is concerned, this is not an uncommon remedy and should be available at most of the stores, although I am not aware of US. You can order this from Helios Pharmacy in UK or from this site.

Hi, just wanted to follow up for anyone who was following this thread.
About 24 hours after the previous post on about 1-2-14, her symptoms peaked and it was clear she was moving back in the direction of it receding and healing.

I would like to state that the disclaimer to seek medical help and 'this will soon spiral out of hands' wasn't a great help to me. Luckily I have enough homeopathic and child rearing experience to wait it out and really tune into what was happening rather than running to the ER for a cortisone shot.

Additionally the high level Rhus Tox doses also in water seemed to draw out many more rashes (healing crisis') that were not the original poison oak rash. Her face and eyes went down and the new eczema type rashes appeared in many areas. That's okay, as I believe in 'better out than in'.
Wondering how long that may go on. In the past I had a 3 month old baby on constitutional remedies get those for 7 years and I was taught its a very good thing, as it is disease coming out of the body.

My one question to you is what is an all- round remedy and dosage to keep on hand when a poison oak outbreak begins?
Since I live rural I would like to have it handy, as there are 3 of us here that seem to fall prey to it.

I would appreciate your ideas on this... and thank you!♥

Sorry 1-3-14 was when her symptoms peaked and began to recede...
