Eczema - 4 month Old - Question for JoeHello Joe,
I have been reading some of your posts about arnica in the wet dose for Eczema.
I have a few questions :
My 4 month old has the same problem. She is exlusively breast fed. Had cradle cap when she was about 4 weeks old. Has very very dry skin. Keeps scracting herself and her head.
When I took 400ml water and added about 5 globules of Arnica 30 C and hit it against my palm, the medicine did not disolve. It still remained as globules. Is that how it will be. How much of it can I safely use for a 4 month old and how often?
How many days will it take to see results. If there is improvement how long should I continue this to see permanant results?
Joe - Your help will be greately appreciated. I do not want to use steriods on my 4 month old though I have been using a little for 3 days now.

You already have my instructions for using Arnica 30c for babies which I have posted on other threads.
I would however like to modify the dosage in the case of your baby who is only 4 months old.
I would recommend that you use the Split Dose which is made up in the same manner as the water dose but the difference is that you take a teaspoonful from the bottle after succussing it 6 times and put the contents of the tsp into half a cup of the same spring water from another bottle which is not potentized.
I note that the globules have not dissolved but this is OK as the Arnica is now in the water which is potentized and is the remedy.
You stir the water in the cup and give the baby a teaspoonful of the water from the cup. This is called the Split Dose and we will watch for results in a week.
I agree with you that Steroids may be used only as a last resort and I hope that the Arnica therapy will help your baby.
Please post response and if you prefer you may address your response to me by email which you will see if you click on my name above this post.
