scalp itching and severe skin rash/boils Page 3 of 3

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Had one of the worst days yday. Had not taken my does of Nat Mur 30c as advised by you. Had severe itching on my scalp- the possessed woman kind of itch where I wanted to yank out my scalp. Several such episodes in the day. Also back of neck flared up and the rash became severe and prominent. I then took Mat Mur 30 c again but no relief so far. Planning to take it today too. Why did it recur so badly again? Is it never going to get cured? what shall I do please? anything in my diet that I should avoid?

The weekend has been really bad. Severe itching n the boils are back on fingers too- small, prickly, itchy. Taking Nat Mur 30c as usual. How come it got better n started to get bad again? what shall I do? Continue Nat Mur 30c?

I really can't give you the reason why the itch has relapsed!!

Please buy 30C potency of MEZEREUM and start taking it once every 4 to 6 hours. As soon as you feel a favorable response, taper down the frequency to two a day.

I have been trying to bring out a few peculiar or strange symptoms from your narrative so that the correct remedy may be picked from the lot. Give me a day to do this work. Meanwhile please try out MEZEREUM in 30C potency.

Hi waiting for you to get back to me. U said you would study my narrative again n revert. I ave started taking Mezereum 30 c since this morning but of course no change at all till now. Quite fed up. Been a month now since you have been suggesting meds. Have changed quite a few please. Do let me know way forward.

Please try STAPHYSAGRIA 30C once in 4 hour for some days. Stop when you see any worsening of symptoms. If the itch seems to reduce, taper down the frequency to 3 a day and finally stop after a few days.

Thanks but I am sorry. I cannot keep changing n purchasing new medicines every other day. Have bought about six int he last one month. There has to be some rationale. Without giving a med time how can I keep changing? Surely you know why you are recommending something? I would prefer to keep taking Mezereum 30 c for a few more days and see the effect. We cant be doing trial and errror?

I fully agree with you. We are not here to do trials on patients.

I have been asking you to give me the modalities of the sufferings and also what exactly was happening in your life in the month of May when the itch first started.

Since I am not getting any proper answer from you, I am not able to erect a simillimum. All I am doing is to try out remedies which are suitable to your general symptoms and mental make up.

As I can see, your mental make up matches Lachesis along with some other general symptoms and that's the reason it was first suggested.

Possibly we are not able to zero in on the right potency.

Thanks, so what do you advise now?

Try to recall what was happening in your life...physically or emotionally, just before the itch started.

This answer will lead us to the remedy.

Hi- you wrote me that the MD said this looks like prickly heat.
Prickly heat type rash is a common symptom of menopause.

'Menopause and Rashes
Skin rashes can signal an excess of progestin in the body, particularly if the woman is undergoing hormone replacement therapy. An excess of progestin can stimulate the hypothalamus to dry out the skin. These rashes can present in several forms: small bumps on the skin, itchy skin, eczema or red spots.

Remedies for Skin Irritation
Most women can find relief with herbal remedies. Some find relief with an increase in lipsomes, flaxseed oil, vitamin E and vitamin C intake. Others find that cocoa butter and vitamin E oil, applied to the rashes, effectively relieve the irritation. Some find relief with an estrogen-rich cream. Seek medical advice before starting any treatment___________________________

What I would suggest to start with now is Nat Phos Cell Salt 6x-
Cell salts work on the cell level to rebalance -these are also
called Dr. Schuessler tissue salts-They are tablets -
take 3 tabs under the tongue 3 times a day and report
after 4 days. I would also take Vitamin C at least 200o mgs a day
divided into 4 doses, and I don't know if you have tried the
black Cohosh herb preparations for menopause but they
help to make this a smoother transition

Here is another article on 'prickly heat' and other remedies to try if the above does
not work.

Prickly heat is generally brought on by overheating and sweating in a hot, humid environment. The rash of tiny red itchy spots is caused by blockage of the sweat pores which is largely confined to the covered areas of the body. The rash is itchy, stings or feels prickly, with tiny blisters on a red base. Itching can also become more apparent during or after exercise. The prickly sensation is due to inflammation caused by bursting of sweat gland ducts blocked by sebum.

Prevention is Better Than Cure
Prevention is better than cure, so if you are prone to prickly heat each year, it is advisable to seek “constitutional treatment” to address the root of the problem and improve your natural immune response. This means understanding the complaint in relation to your whole health rather than just viewing the symptoms in isolation. You can read more on this here.

Homeopathic Remedies for Prickly Heat
If you do suffer from prickly heat whilst on holiday here are a few suggested acute homeopathic remedies to consider.

Apis: Skin feels hot with raised, red, shiny eruptions that feel worse for the heat and better for cool bathing – (looks shiny like a bee sting).

Rhus Tox: Burning or extreme itching rash with small blisters and restlessness. Skin feels worse for cold air and better for heat.

Urtica urens: The rash is red with raised blotches that sting, burn and itch. Skin feels worse for cold bathing and better for rubbing -(looks like nettle rash).

Urtica urens cream or tincture can also be applied topically to help relieve the itch.

Seek help
Seek help if the irritation is intolerable and there is accompanying weakness and lethargy.

Do not use perfumes, scented soap or bubble baths, wear light cotton clothing and avoid sun exposure until your skin has healed
