3 yo with Eczema and runny noseHi everyone!!! I really don't know much about homeopathy but I am growing more interested daily.
My 3 year old son has had eczema and a runny nose as long as I can remember. We use Elidel every night because he will scratch his skin until he bleeds. I read the insert that comes with the Elidel today and it says that it increases the chance of cancer...especially in children due to weakening the immune system.
Upon doing research it appears that his eczema and constantly runny nose could be hand in hand due to allergies.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I'm a little worried about taking him to a dermatologist for fear that they will just put him on either Elidel or steroids.
I've read that flaxseed oil and fish oil can help.
Does anyone know of any other remedies?

Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from your nearest supermarket.
Drop in 3 pellets or 1 drop of liquid Arnica 30c into the 400ml water
Cap the bottle tightly and succuss it 4-6 times by banging on your palm and look out for the air bubbles to fizzle up from the bottom.
Pour out 1 teaspoonful of the potentized remedy and let your son sip 1 teaspoonful of the water from the cup twice daily.
You will have to stop all other medication if you wish to start on this therapy. You should notice some reduction in the level of his itchiness in about 3 days when the Eczema should be dry. I note that you are using Elidel on his skin but I would prefer that you do not use it as it may interfere with the Arnica therapy.
I note that your son has a problem with his running nose but I do not think that it has any connection with the Eczema. I may be able to treat it later after we have some positive response from his Eczema.
Report response in a week.

I think you should give your son 1 dose of ARSENICUM ALBUM 200, then wait for the progress and also report.
Best wishes for your son,
