The ABC Homeopathy Forum

4 yr old with eczema

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me please. I have a 4 year old son who has never had any skin problems. Last summer he had a small circular patch of dry skin on his thigh. I thought it could be ringworm so I gave him sepia and it went away.

He then got another patch in a different area. I tried sepia again but it didn't work. The GP prescribed an anti fungal cream (over the phone!) which we put on, but we also went on holiday at the same time so he had daily sun and sea water. It went away again.

Then at Christmas, he got another patch on his shin. Sepia didn't work. We saw a homeopath and she allergy tested him and thought it might be our washing liquid so we changed to a sensitive one. It didn't go and started getting bigger, with another few smaller patches appearing so we saw the GP who prescribed fucidin cream, as well as an emollient cream and one for the bath.

Within another week or so it had pretty much spread over his whole body. It came up as spots, particularly on his elbows, and patches on his legs. It gradually spread up his tummy and down his back.

We tried various emollient creams from the GP. We also saw the homeopath another 3 times. She allergy tested him and he was still showing weak for ringworm, although it didn't really look much like ringworm by now. We tried thuja which didn't help.

Eventually we gave in and used the steroid cream that the dermatologist had prescribed. She said it was eczema. It did go away quite quickly. The problem is that when we stop using the cream for a few days he starts to get new patches. They show up as a cluster of smallish spots. They must itch because I've seen him scratch them, although he describes them as 'hurts'.

We have been using the steroid cream as sparingly as possible (particularly because I was told it is quite a strong one).

I'm now wondering whether we should try a constitutional remedy? We have already spent a fair amount on appointments which haven't helped so I'm reluctant to keep going back.

On the lead up to the Christmas patch we had noticed that he appeared very run down. He was quite tired and he had reddish circles under his eyes. He was also very pale. He seemed to get much better and got his vitality back, actually whilst he still had a lot of spots/rash. So we wondered if it was viral maybe?

The last month or so we are struggling with him as he is quite grumpy and short tempered. He is a lovely little boy. He gets cross though very quickly. He seems quite anxious and has started getting really upset every day when Daddy goes to work (I have recently gone back to work myself though after baby no 2). He has always been brilliant at drawing and will happily spend hours drawing cars. He is very precise and the drawings have to be perfect or he gets really annoyed and upset.

Sorry for such a long post. I thought it would be helpful to try to give as much info as possible. Feel free to ask any questions. I've got lots of photos if it would be helpful for anyone to see.

If anyone can offer any advice or suggestions I'd be really grateful.

Thank you
Amanda

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I shall copy below my default therapy for Eczema which has helped the lesions of many chronic cases to dry up in a few days.

The remedy for your Eczema is Arnica 6c in the Wet dose which is made up as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol in a bottle with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles. This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is taken as directed.

Sip a capful of the remedy water twice daily and also apply the water directly on your lesions as often as possible to keep them damp. This accelerates healing.

You should observe some improvement in your condition on about the third day into this therapy.

Please report your response on the third day.

It is understood that you will not take any other drug while using the Arnica therapy.

Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

Hi Joe

That's fantastic thank you. I'm in the UK. I've had a look online but can't find any liquid arnica to buy. Do you know where I may be able to get it please?

Thank you!

Sounds like that homoeopath wasn't prescribing according to the basic principles of homoeopathy. We do not need to test for allergies as part of our prescribing process. Symptoms alone are the guide.

If the Arnica does not help I am happy to take the case and look for a deeper acting remedy based on the total picture.

Thank you Joe. The ainsworth website sells liquid arnica in either 33% or 96% alcohol. Which should i get please? Alternatively the helios website also sells it but there are several options: LM liquid, oral liquid, mother tincture or medicating potency? I never expected so much choice!

Hi Evocationer. Thank you for your reply. Sorry I should have been clearer. The homeopath is also a practitioner in NAET (allergy elimination technique). My son has been treated by her for quite a fw allergies/intolerances so I think I approached (I can't speak for her too, but I know she tends to use a combination of the two) his latest problem as likely to be another allergy to something.

If you wouldn't mind, id like to take you up on your offer to look at the total picture as his behaviour is quite difficult at the moment. He is very emotional at the moment, over reacting to things and becoming upset/angry very quickly. It is late now and I'm very tired so I will give you some more information tomorrow when hopefully my brain will be working a little better!

Thank you

Ok this is the list of questions that can be used for a child's case. It is extensive, and not all the questions are relevant so ignore anything that does not apply to your child. You do not have to answer them at all just leave them blank. The more information you give the easier it is to reliably work towards a remedy.

In clinic this process is a lot more natural and organic, following leads from your statements and observations of the child. Here it is a lot more mechanical and time consuming so I apologize for that. You can wait till the results of the Arnica are known before doing this if you like. Saves you making the effort if you don't need to.

You must understand that you cannot use the therapy of 2 Homeopathic physicians for the same ailment as there is every chance of one therapy anti doting the other.

I am NOT a Classical Homeopath as although I have studied and used classical homeopathy about 40 years ago using the strict guidelines it specifies, I discovered that it was not as effective as my therapy which was described by many classical homeopaths as “This for That” therapy and was derisively classified as “Joepathy” which is a term that attracts about 2000 hits on Google.

I am happy to state that I am not the only Homeopathic advisor to use the protocol I prescribe as Dr Prasanta Banerji who owns and operates the
PRASANTA BANERJI HOMEOPATHIC RESEARCH FOUNDATION
http://www.pbhrfindia.org/

also uses the same therapy.

I have prescribed the therapy I have used to CURE many hundreds of patients of their Chronic Eczema and you are free to follow the therapy that the other classical homeopath has offered to prescribe.

Yes Joe is correct, you should follow only one prescriber's advice at a time. I do not want to hijack your case if you wish to follow his advice.

However, Joe is incorrect in stating classical homoeopathy is not as effective as his variation of our therapy. However I doubt anyone here wants to see an argument over this and I certainly do not want to start one.

The Bannerjis have acknowledged that their protocols for the treatment of certain pathologies are not homoeopathy but some different therapy which uses our potentized medicines. Their success rate with these protocols is slightly less than 20%, which is quite different to the more reliable success rate of homoeopathy practiced in the correct manner (where there is not extensive tissue changes).

However, these protocols may be more effective in treating certain advanced pathological states where patients are at serious risk of death ie. c-ancer. It is definitely true that applying homoeopathy in the more traditional way can actually be much less successful for these kinds of cases.

For other kinds of situations (anything not so serious) these doctors have stated they continue to use more traditional methods of prescribing, and in fact after using their own protocols, will return to using those 'classical' methods once the patient is out of danger (the pathology has reduced or even vanished).

Whether Joe's method will work in this case I do not know. However if it does not, I am happy to see if a more traditional method would.

Thank you both. I have been talking to my husband and although a week ago we were both most concerned about the eczema, we have decided that at the moment it is actually his behaviour that is the biggest issue. Therefore I think it would be helpful if we could have some advice on that, so I will complete all the info you’ve asked. We think it may actually be linked to the eczema but who knows, but I will put in the eczema info too in case it is. We wonder if the eczema may have been triggered by stress.

Ok here goes!


1] Describe in detail the main complaints in regards to the exact location, exact sensation, and the way he/she expresses it (use body gestures to describe the complaint)
2] Factors that increase and decrease the complaint.
3] When did the complaint begin?
4] Any associated complaints? Describe in detail.
5] Did any event happen which caused/triggered the complaint?


L is a lovely little boy for about 90% of the time. The problem we are having is that we are having periods of exaggerated emotions, I guess is the best way to describe it. He is very like his Dad personality-wise. We are just getting extremes of his personality at the moment. He’s going through a phase of not listening (which I realise is not exactly uncommon for a 4 year old!). He is getting really upset about both my husband and I leaving for work in the mornings. I went back to work mid Feb (the eczema started at Xmas time). The first few weeks he was fine. More recently we are having major tears, screaming etc when either (or worse if both) of us are going to work. It takes a while to calm him down.

I have a feeling this particular issue was triggered a few weeks ago. When I drop him at preschool I always have to wave to him from the window. He has always had his little routines, things I have to say to him, otherwise he gets upset. For instance, for about the first year I always had to say ‘love you , miss you, bye bye’ and then blow him a kiss. This was the same if we were leaving grandparents etc, they had to do the same. If they got it wrong or missed a bit he would get really upset and cry until they got it right. The same at night, there have been a variety of nighttime rituals, things we have to do and say before bed.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I had driven him up to preschool (we usually walk) and I completely forgot to wave to him at the window. It was only when I got home that I realised so I did actually get back into the car and drive back up (I’d probably been about 7-8 mins in total). I expected that he would have gone off to play but bless him he was still standing at the window waiting for me to wave. Ever since then he hasn’t wanted to go to preschool and we have had a few sessions where I have had to leave him in tears. On Mon when he was really upset about my husband and I going to work my husband asked him why he was so upset. He told him that he was worried we wouldn’t wave goodbye because Mummy had forgotten to wave to him at preschool ☹. I gather he had got upset and asked the teacher to phone me to tell me to come back to wave. Then he had just waited at the window for me. Thank goodness I had gone back (at the time I did think I was a bit silly and that he would be busy playing by then), but it appears it wasn’t enough that I went back.

In the mornings when we’re working, he’ll ask what we’re doing for the day and when we say working he’ll repeatedly say over and over that he doesn’t want us to go. This goes on and on for however long it is until we leave. On Monday, when it was time to leave he just clung onto my leg crying and saying he didn’t want us to go. It was awful. Apparently he did calm down shortly after we had gone because my mum (who looks after the 2 of them) put Octonauts on, his favourite programme

A couple of other examples. Today we went to a farm with friends. He found a stick and was carrying it around and playing with it. We stopped to feed some donkeys and he put it down. About 10 mins later he asked where his stick was and we realised we had left it with the donkeys. He immediately got really really upset, screaming at me saying we had to go back and get it, dragging on my arm. He wouldn’t listen to anything I was saying. This went on for about 10 mins!

Similarly, last week I asked him to get dressed. He wanted me to help him (he had a phase of wanting to be independent with stuff, but now always wants me to dress him, put his shoes on etc). I told him I would if he came over straight away but he just kept looking at his book. I told him again it was his final chance otherwise he would have to dress himself. Again he didn’t listen so I started to go downstairs. When he noticed, he immediately got very upset, screaming that I had to get him dressed. I refused and the whole thing went on for about 20 mins. He gets so cross, I try to cuddle him to explain but he wont listen and wriggles around not wanting to be cuddled, but then if I put him down, he just asks to be cuddled again. He eventually calmed down and dressed himself. On this occasion it was before breakfast and his behaviour is always far worse if he is hungry.

As I said above, he is very like his Daddy in many respects (my husband doesn’t quite have a full on tantrum but not far off sometimes!! Don’t tell him I said that!!!!) My husband is a very tidy person (and I’m not). He will usually walk in after work, mutter about how the house is such a mess (even if there are only a few things out) and then immediately have to tidy up. L is very similar, not in the tidying sense, but in terms of getting stressed very easily about things.

Re the eczema, I think I included most of the issues in the original post. It started at xmas time. My younger son had just turned one and I was due back to work in Feb. I can’t think of any obvious triggers for it. Although as I said, he had seemed very run down for a good few weeks. He looked pale, he had dryness around and under his eyes, he was quite short tempered (more than usual). Then the eczema spread really quickly and it was obviously horrible for him. He couldn’t get to sleep so we started putting a get to sleep cd on for him. He would wake every night, and even though in 4 years he had never once slept in our bed, it got to the point where he was either in our bed or the spare bed with one of us, every single night, because otherwise we would be up in his room for hours sitting with him, rubbing him, stroking him back to sleep, only for him to wake 10 mins later and the whole cycle would start again.


MENTAL STATE OF CHILD I'l answer the ones I can, hope that's ok

I think I’ve answered 1-3 above. Fears – he’s scared of monsters and has very occasionally woken up after a bad dream.
5. He likes stories about under the sea. I’m not sure I can answer the rest of the info.

10] What are his/her interests and hobbies?

Cars and drawing, particularly drawing cars. He drew his first car at 18 months and his car drawings now have incredible detail. As I said above, he gets very focussed and will go though numerous sheets of paper before he draws something he is happy with. He's very particular about how the car should look.

11] Describe about the specific toys, games/specific TV serials, cartoon characters, movies he/she likes. What are the thoughts, feelings associated with it? What kind of questions does he/she asks related to that?

Cars! He likes octonauts, he's very into a tv programme about the world's most deadly animals. He always likes to know what their 'deadly score' is. He loves nature programmes.

12] How is he/she at sports and other activities?

Ok, he was never one of the ones who would be first to climb things, needing reassurance etc, but would get there in the end with a little tlc and a gently push in the right direction.

13] Describe about the drawing he/she likes to do/sing. What are the thoughts/feelings associated with it?

As i said above, mostly cars. He will also sometimes draw boats or under the sea scenes of whale sharks, jellyfish etc.

14] Any other activities does he/she like to do? What are they? What are the thoughts/feelings associated with it?

He's very into playing catch with Daddy at the moment. He loves it!

15] Describe all the qualities of your child, which makes him/her different from other children, which is unique to him/her.

He's such a loving little boy, very often telling me he loves me. He is very focussed on what he does and will sit and concentrate on a task like drawing etc for hours, very unlike most children, especially boys his age. His drawings are far more advanced than for his age.

16] What does he/she wants to become when he is grown up and why? What are his/her ambitions?

To drive a racing car during the week for his job and to play football at the weekends.

17] Whom does he/she idealizes and why? What about him that he/she admires the most?

Grandpa I think. They get on really well and he loves to go to their house to play.

18] How is his/her relationship/behavior with parents, teachers, friends, relatives? What are the qualities he/she admires in them? How is his behavior in school?

He prefers adults i think. He does have friends but it tends to be on his terms. If they are playing something he wants to play then he will join in. But if they're not, he's not fussed as he is happy playing by himself. My husband is quite worried about it actually. He starts school in Sept.

19] What kind of questions does he/she asks to his/her parents, relatives, teachers?

All sorts! How are babies made?! 'But how does the seed actually get into your tummy mummy'?!! Where is heaven? Loads and loads of questions!

20] What are his/her views about the world?

???
21] What makes the child cry or laugh?

laugh - tickling, playing
cry - not getting his own way, perceiving he has hurt himself (he is a real drama queen when it comes to pain! (like Daddy!!)

22] What makes your child very angry and irritable?
being told off, being hungry, being tired

23] What does the child do when he/she is alone?

draws and plays cars

24] Is there any particular reaction does he / she throw about a particular person?

i don't think so

25] Have you observed any change in his/her behavior on starting a particular T.V./radio program? If so, what is it? How does he/she react?


no

SLEEP PATTERN

Alright I will look over this case today.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Of the underwater scenes, what animal does he draw most often. Could you also either show him one of those pictures or get him to draw those animals, and just ask him to talk about each one.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
I've just asked him to draw me an underwater scene so I'll let you know what he does!

He's drawing a whale shark first (he always draws them first and most often).

I asked him to talk about it and he said 'it's only a whale shark'.

'Im going to draw the 6 gill shark next'. 'Hold on, this one (whale shark) has got quite a lot of gills. That's a big fish. Whale sharks are very big. I'm doing the dots Mummy. I can do the dots on whale sharks'.

'Mummy look at the whale shark!'

'Hold on it's not going to be a 6 gill shark. I'm doing them in different colours remember'. '

'look black'.

Me: What are you drawing next?

'A fish... look this is the pattern on the fish. This is the gill. That's the gill there behind the eye. I'm not sure what kind of fish it is. Shall we just make a name for it? Can you think of a name for it?'

Me: 'You think of one'.

L: 'Benny'! 'Next colour... yellow'

What's that? (me)

L: 'A Barracuda'. It definitely has got... That definitely is a long fish. Look Mummy it's longer than the whale shark! Whale sharks are very big. It's supposed to be about that long. Next fish...

He just dropped his pen and while he was picking it up I asked him to pass me a piece of paper and the pens for his little brother... his rply... 'Mummy you're making life very hard for me'!!!! Ha ha!! (he didn't get the pens)

More drawing.
Another fish
'Look two fish the same. What's his name? Pixie? Shall we call him Pixie? Right, fidderent colour Mummy.
(green)

'Mummy look.

Me 'What is it?'

L 'A one gill fish. actually it's a 2 gill fish

'different colour fish now mummy. 2 more pens to go'

Me' what are you drawing now?'

L It's a fish, Mummy I haven't told you what the fish is yet. This is a one gill fish. (blue)

Me' Can you tell me anything else about the animals.

'I;m not really sure. These two have got stripes all over them. This one has got 6.. the whale shark has got 6 gills and the barracuda has got 5 gills and I'm not sure about the tops ones. I've done the one gill fish, now I've got to do the next fish. I was a bit like Steve Backshall with that pen up in the air! (Steve is the presenter of the deadly animal programme)

l 'this one's got 4 gills. All of them have got 2 eyes, but on the other side'

'right I have to start all over again( with his pen colours).

'black...this ones got 1 gill. next colour is light blue. I'm not sure what I'll draw next, just wait and see..!'

'a starfish, this is a starfish mummy, this is a starfish. look it's laying on the rock'

'silly me, i forgot to do the mouth on the one gill black fish'

He saw me watching his drawing and said
mmy
'coral reef. Mummy look can you see the table coral. ah look at the coral reef. the star fish is living in the coral reef'.

'next one, this one looks like a big ball but it's not, it's a puffer fish, it's a porcupine puffer fish. I thought we were going to make a porcupine puffer fish'?(yellow)

Me 'We can do'

L 'Every single fish has got gills haven't they. Look at the puffer fish mummy. It's got 2 gills and lots and lots of spikes all over him.'

'This one is going to be a shark (pink).
'Mummy this is a 3 gill shark. This is a lovely page. We're going to keep the drawing. All our drawings we're going to keep aren't we?'

Me yes

L this is 2 gill shark, a pointy nose shark. this will be a very scary shark living in the deep. it's living in the top at the moment.'

'look at this shark!'

Me 'what is it?'

L 'it's a goblin shark, its a goblin shark, it's happy!' There's lots of pink at the moment. I know! I think I've finished this drawing! Take a picture on your camera. Make sure you get it all in the picture! '

Hurrah it worked! Mu husband is the computer whizz in this house!

i thought of a couple of other things. L is a very slow eater, as i think i said. It's not that he's chewing slowly or anything, he just doesn't seem to get around to eating! He's too busy chatting. At dinner time, my youngest and i have usually finished and L and Daddy have barely started!

He also doesn't like his food to be mixed or touching! The food has to be in separate parts on the plate, although he is getting better at mixing food when we encourage him.

He's quite anxious in general. We found out today which school he will be going to and so I was chatting to him about it. He said that he's quite worried about it.

He's also very loud! Just like Daddy too! They don't seem to have a quiet mode!
 
aks999 6 years ago
Thank you so much. You have really gone above and beyond my request here, but this is EXACTLY what I would ask a patient in my clinic to do. I am very grateful.

It is interesting. I am considering a remedy made from a marine animal for him. Let me think a little about this.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
It does seem he has inherited his state from his father. This doesn't mean they need the same remedy of course. Children often reinterpret the state passed on to them in a new way.

There are different ways I could do this. I always try to work from symptoms to rubrics first, to get an idea of what kind of remedies are known to produce the symptoms.

While there are many well-known remedies that produce some of these symptoms, I am always on the look out for remedies that I do not know so well. I have many times cured a case with a less well-known remedy.

There are two symptoms that I felt covered the most peculiar part of his case, for a child his age.

Rest, cannot, until things are in their proper place

Order, desires

There are 4 remedies that appear in both these rubrics:

Carcinosinum
Chironex fleckeri
Ficus macrophylla
Kali sulph

Two of those remedies are new remedies - Chir-fl and Fic-m. I have looked at both provings and I would not consider Fic-m (Morton Bay Fig). I would also not consider Kali-sulph at this stage.

The two remedies I would consider are Carc as a polycrest, and Chir-fl as a more unusual choice. Chir-fl is the box jellyfish, and I had a look at both the proving and the group themes that might also cover your son's case.

One of the main themes of the sea animal group is a feeling of being Forsaken.

Chir-fl belongs to the Cnidarian group within the Sea animals. The themes in that group that might suit your son are:

Sensation of being out of control emotionally and mentally
Overwhelming and powerful emotions
Loss of grip over impulse and instinct
Touchy, reactionary, excitable, easily irritated, highly sensitive
React to everything in an instant
Emotionally impulsive
Overreaction, ultrasensitive
Lack of adaptability

From the proving, symptoms that might suit him are:

Anger, overwhelming passion
Feeling of being alone
Better for company
Fastidious
Desires order
Anxious and forsaken feeling
Anticipation
Argumentative, defiant, demanding, dictatorial, impatient

So, what I would suggest it actually obtaining both Carcinosinum and Chironex fleckeri at the 200c potency. I would like to start with Chir-fl as it seems to me to be the most interesting choice, and we can go to Carc if this does not produce the response I hope for. Helios Pharmacy in the UK can provide these remedies.

Thank you so much, those themes totally suit him. I will get hold of some ASAP. How often should he take it?
 
aks999 6 years ago
I will only get you to give him one dose to begin with. You should try to get a liquid dose rather than pillules or pellets, but if you do get the remedy in those forms, you will also need a small bottle and dropper, and some alcohol to make up a dosing medicine (I use brandy, vodka, whiskey, rum although ethanol is better if you can get it)

I'll give you specific dosing instructions once you have everything.
 
Evocationer 6 years ago
Thank you, lucky I checked as I very nearly ordered it today, but in tablet form. I'll check now about the liquid form. Should I get the other remedy in liquid form too?
 
aks999 6 years ago
Ok 2 options:

Form: Oral liquid
Size: 5ml
Potency: 200c

Form: Medicating potency
Size: 3.5ml
Potency: 200c


Which should I get please?
 
aks999 6 years ago
Get the oral liquid.

When you get the remedy, this is what I want you to do.

Hit the bottle firmly 5 times. Place 3 drops into 100ml of water. Stir thoroughly. Take 2 teaspoons out and place those in his mouth.

This is one dose. Give him no more doses until we assess what happens. This may require waiting up to a week.
