Nodules under skin on chest and itching scalp


Can anybody recommend a remedy to get rid of hard nodules deep under the skin, casued by cystic acne? They are mostly on the chest, but sometimes on the cheeks of my face. The scars are dark brown and last for months to years. (My skin is light to light olive..)

The other symptom I am having is horribly itchy scalp. It just started a couple weeks ago. Intolerable itching. It's really embarassing because I'm scratching all the time, even around clients, and can't make myself stop.

It itches the worst at night and in the early morning, but it itches all the time...just worse night and morning.

I tried sulphur for both symptoms, but it only made me extremely angry and irritable, but did nothing for the itching or the acne nodules.

Nature Girl, By looking at your family history, it seems you have a very strong inheritance of syphilitic miasm. Also, your medical history confirms it.

Can you answer the following questions.

1.When did you have your hysterectomy and can your directly relate your acne with it. Did you start developing cystic acne just after your hysterectomy?

2. Can you tell me what causes itching on your scalp? Does scratching make it better or worse?

3. What are the factors that aggravate itching on the scalp and what factors ameliorate it?

4. Apart from stress due to shifting, what else was going on in your mind or body when you started having these bouts of itching? Were you on some allopathic medication?

5. Do most of your physical and mental sufferings aggravate at night?

6.Do most of your mental and physical sufferings have relation to sleep?

7. Do you have any obsessive compulsive disorders or any habit that's considered abnormal?

8. Do you crave alcohol?

9. What is your skin type? Is it dry or moist? How often do you sweat?

10. Do you think your sufferings increase when you perspire?

11. Apart from the fact that you are single, how is your sex drive? Do you look forward to a relationship to gratify your urge? How intense is that urge?

12. Can you tell me the sensations and modalities of the sufferings due to migraine?

13. What actually causes the migraine? Is it lack of sleep or sun or strain or something else?

Your remedy is LACHESIS MUTUS.

Start with 30C potency and take around 4 doses just on a single day. Each dose 6 hours apart.

Wait and watch your symptoms change for the next 15 days and then share notes on your conditio n here.

Buy liquid form of the remedy and for each dose, it would be 3 drops of it in some 10 ml of water sipped in empty stomach. Don't take any food or water one hour before or after taking the doses.

This remedy will help you at all fronts. It will act late but gradually, you will get well.

Thank you!

I have tried lachesis in the past, and it helped a little, but it didn't help a ton.

However, I will try it again!

Thank you!!

When did you last take Lachesis? Was it before or after the hysterectomy?

Another remedy you can try is MERC SOL which is an anti-syphilitic remedy suitable to your kind of symptoms.

Has any homeopath ever suggest a dose of SYPHILINUM?

I have tried lachesis before and after the hysterectomy. It helped some of my symptoms, but not all of them.

I actually took it immediately after my hysterectomy, and it helped a lot. I was having a horrible reaction to the pain meds (horrible headaches) and it straightened me right out.

I took it a few times after that, but nothing much happened.

The last time I tried it was probably a few months ago when I was having a mild migraine episode. I didn't want it to turn into a big one. It was before the itching began.

I have never tried merc-sol, though.

Ok, let me research the merc-sol and see which one fits me best right now.

Thanks again. I really appreciate your time and effort!! :)

Lol. I think you must have been reading my mind.

No, no homeopath ever recommended syphillinum, but I was just sitting here wondering if that would help!! :)

For the migraine you can try NAT MUR 30C as your generals are matching this remedy.

Take some 4 doses maximum, four hourly and wait and watch.

Well, you're never going to believe this, but the sepia seems to be working.

I hardly had any scalp itching this morning when I woke up, AND no numbness in my fingers, either.

So, before I take anything else, I'm just going to see if the sepia continues to work.

nature_girl 8 years ago
Well, I am not surprised. I figured Sepia would work on your itching looking at your independent nature. I was looking for a remedy that could address your totality of symptoms and I found Lachesis had the advantage of similar modalities.

You are quite an interesting individual for me. If you really have these religious experiences, you are one in a million. I would like to know more from you about your super-consciousness states. Can you write to me directly to my e-mail if you don't mind?
