This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Can you describe the 'bitter smell' of his sweat?

Does he like cold or warm weather?

Describe his mental make-up and personality or the way he comes across with his parents, friends, animals or pets and visitors at home.

How are his energy levels?

Does he like to be hugged and caressed often?

What physical ailments does he suffer from in general since he is born?

How is his appetite?

When did this eczema start? Can you recollect anything in his lifestyle that might have lead to this problem.

Thank you very much for answering my post. I'll try to give you all the information needed.

Can you describe the 'bitter smell' of his sweat?
I have some difficulty in describing it because I am not a native speaker of English but I would say it's a sour smell. You can smell it in his pyjamas when he undresses it because he sweats a lot during night time.

Does he like cold or warm weather?
I would say he prefers the cold. He doesn't like hot water when showering, he prefers the water to be lightly warm.

Describe his mental make-up and personality or the way he comes across with his parents, friends, animals or pets and visitors at home.
He is very jealous and I would say he is hyper sensitive. He gets sad with little things and he gets pouty. At school he is shy and doesn't like to be the center of attention. He likes animals but is affraid of dogs. When we have visitors at home he is shy in the beggining but slowly tries to call for their attention and when he knows the people well he gets hyper excited and jumps all around them.

How are his energy levels?
Very high. He is rarely still. He likes running and jumping and climbing things. He has broken her head 3 times.

Does he like to be hugged and caressed often?
Yes, he is needy and likes to be hugged especially by me or grandparents.

What physical ailments does he suffer from in general since he is born?
As a baby he had some ottites and respiratory infections but now he is rarely ill.

How is his appetite?
He is a good eater. He is not picky, likes almost everything, except eggs. he loves dairy products and bananas. He likes vegetables soup.

When did this eczema start? Can you recollect anything in his lifestyle that might have lead to this problem.
It started a few weeks ago. There was no change in his routine or in his feeding habits.

What time of the day is the itch worst?

What are the things that make the itch worse and what do you do to make it better?

Does it itch most when his foot is sweating?

What time of the day is the itch worst?
It gets worse in the evening and at night time.

What are the things that make the itch worse and what do you do to make it better?
Cold water makes it better. And scratching. But scratching makes the blisters turn into wounds.

Does it itch most when his foot is sweating?
I don't think so. It itches most when he is still or sleeping.

Try MERC SOL 12C three times a day for a week maximum and then stop for a week to assess changes in the skin.

One dose would be 2 to 3 drops in some 10 ml of water sipped up in empty stomach and clean mouth. No food one hour before or after taking the doses.

If the skin heals within a week, you can stop the rest of the doses.

Come back after 15 days to share your observations.

i hv good experience with arsenic 30 twice daily. morning at 11 am evening at 4 pm. it takes one to two months for complete cure.

How many doses have you given him. In case you have not given any dose, start Merc Sol as suggested and keep a watch on the changes. As soon as any change is seen for better or worse, stop the remedy.

If the symptoms have got worse after a few doses of Merc Sol, then stop the doses immediately. He will get better after the aggravation is over.

I have given him the Merc Sol 12ch as suggested. He started to take it on the 7th October. I have been given him 2 doses per day. Should I stop?

Sofia,

You need to tell Rishimba what reactions he is
having or what you notice since 7th october.

Stop Merc Sol immediately.

This just shows Merc Sol has produced a response and this is probably the right remedy.

I suggested 12C potency thinking higher potencies will aggravate.

Now that some aggravation is seen, things will be better than before when curing action begins. I guess, potency is just right for him.

If his skin doesn't heal completely after a few days, give him two doses a day again for a day or two. As soon as a change is seen for better or worse, stop dosing.

This is how this eczema should be cured. Eczema takes time and need to be treated with patience.

Thank you Rishimba. I'll do as you advise.

Could you please check my other post? I'm having a bad time resolving my own problem. :(

I have read your answers to the questionnaire. You may be a Natrum Mur patient and your constitutional remedy is in fact Natrum Mur but this problem's modalities are strongly pointing to Merc Sol again.

At present, Fitness is looking after your case. Continue with him for now. In case you feel your skin is not getting cured taking Mat Mur, you can try the same 12C potency of Merc Sol for yourself just the way I have suggested for your son.
