Eczema and bleeding cuts in feet

Ever since a child, I have had dry eczema on my feet characterized by peeling of skin below feet and fingers, bleeding cuts that look as though cut by a knife, extreme dryness, terrible itching, heat in feet( keep shifting feet even while sitting).

Eczema flares up even with a small touch to dust.....pretty much round the year, worse in winter.

Could someone give me a medicine for this.

What causes the flatulence (gas) to get better and worse.

Please post here or email me pictures of your feet's skin without any moisturization.

Though there is no problem with it, gas is always there.....I haven't figured out when and how it's low but fatty spicy foods cause more gas.

Reason could be, my eating habits were not so timely in my teenage. I used skip lunches and breakfast just because I didn't like the food in my hostel...
 
sadhus 5 years ago
Your remedy is: Lycopodium 200c.

HOW TO TAKE THE REMEDY:
Please take one dose. Just one dose. Not daily.
Report back after 15 days using the format explained below.

WHAT IS A DOSE:
If remedy is Pills/Pellets:
One dose is one pill.
Dissolve the pill in your mouth.

If remedy is liquid:
Put one drop of the remedy in half glass of water, stir and take one tea spoon from it.
That’s one dose.

TIME OF DOSE:
At night before sleeping.
Don’t take any more dose or any other remedy unless I tell.

PRECAUTIONS:
Don’t take any other homeopathic remedy during this treatment.
Give a break of at least 10 minutes before eating/drinking anything before or after taking the remedy.
During the course of treatment, don’t eat/drink anything which you have never had all your life.

HOMEOPATHIC AGGRAVATION:
Sometimes the symptoms for which treatment is being done can worsen after taking the homeopathic remedy. This is homeopathic aggravation and a good sign. It usually dies down within 24-48 hrs. During this time you can use any non-medicinal means to keep yourself comfortable. If the aggravation seems excessive, you can use any & all means necessary (including taking allopathic medicines) to keep yourself comfortable. Keep your homeopath fully updated if this happens.

HOW TO GIVE FEEDBACK:
A good example of how to report your progress is by giving %age improvement or worsening for all your health problems e.g.
Emotions: e.g. Feeling of happiness improved 40%
Energy level: e.g. Feeling of tiredness reduced 70%
Main health problem: e.g. Nasal discharge reduced 50%
Other health problems: e.g. Acne increased 60%
Anything new: Depression: e.g. Loose stool started
And so on list all your complaints.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU ARE GETTING CURED:
Any cure in homeopathic treatment will always follow this rule (Hering’s Law of Cure) otherwise it’s not cure, just palliation. The cure must proceed from centre to circumference. From centre to circumference is from above downward, from within outwards, from more important to less important organs, from the head to the hands and feet.

IF I DON’T REPLY:
If you don’t hear back from me within 24 hrs, it is likely that the forum’s email didn’t work. You can send me an email by clicking my username.

DIETARY & EXERCISE GUIDELINES (for adults):
Use common sense in following these guidelines, if you are unsure then ask me. Homeopathy is not magic and it can only work when all other supportive strategies are also used. To make sure you are cured as fast as possible and stay that way please change your lifestyle to include the following:

1. Start eating half cup of low fat, plain, non-flavored yogurt with live cultures daily in the morning or with lunch. If you have homemade yogurt that’s the best.
2. Stop all processed foods e.g. white bread, white rice, white burgers etc.
3. Eat whole foods only i.e. whole grain bread, brown rice, brown burgers etc.
4. The bread should be high in bran content & the flour should be coarse ground.
5. Start eating a small bowl of salad at least once a day e.g. it should contain cucumber, carrots, salad leaves, tomato and any vegetable you like. Put a dressing of olive oil & raw apple cider vinegar and put some salt & black pepper to your liking.
6. Eat at least 1-2 fruits per day e.g. apple, orange etc.
7. Drink enough water so that your urine is clear. Yellow colored urine is a good indication that you are dehydrated.
8. Eat only when hungry and when eating, don’t overstuff yourself.
9. Focus on food only when you eat i.e. don’t divert your attention by watching tv etc.
10. Exercise:
• Aerobic activity e.g. Start walking at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week with your spouse/friend and achieve your target heart rate.
• Strength training e.g. Start weight training at least 20 minutes 3 days a week.

LIFESTYLE CHANGE:
No amount of treatment, be it homeopathic or allopathic, can cure if the persistent cause is not eliminated e.g. if you keep moving a broken bone repeatedly then it will never heal since you are not giving it the required break to heal and set the bone. The same logic applies to constant immense stress (don’t confuse it with daily life stress which is necessary to survive).
Extremely unhappy relationships are toxic in nature and only breed more contempt & ill health unless they are addressed and proper remedial measures are not taken.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING:
If someone is giving several remedies, without waiting to see the effect of one remedy, then it is totally against the core principles of homeopathy. Such an approach is unlikely to give permanent cure, rather it may distort actual symptoms making subsequent cure even more difficult.

Hello sir, I have always known lycopodium for digestion.

I had this eczema from childhood but digestive issues only from teenage.

Please advice.
 
sadhus 5 years ago
The advise is given above, please follow it.
 
fitness 5 years ago
I will have to order the remedy. Will report back when I take it and further.
 
sadhus 5 years ago
I would also like to mention that 2 months back, I consulted a homeopathic doc for a medicine and he gave one. Medicine name was not disclosed to me. Course was: 2 doses a day every alternate day for 15 days and stop. Though I have not see any change in the eczema, side effects were: huge hair fall which is still there, I feel my breasts have sunken a little bit, while taking the medicine, my hands used to get bleeding cuts which were painful.

I wanted to keep this informed.
 
sadhus 5 years ago
That's why I have the detailed questionnaire to have all the case facts. Anyways.

Please follow the dosage & other instructions.
 
fitness 5 years ago
Hi, I have taken the first dose of lycopodium on Jan 21 night.
Impact could be seen in feet:
On 2 nd and 3rd day, there was more cuts in feet. They started to subside a lot and I could see new skin coming in the following days. Attached is the current picture.

However, one thing that didn't change is the extreme dryness in feet. My feet are soo extremely dry that I walked barefoot a few mints in park, and dryness returned all of a sudden. Dryness comes with problem becoming more even on the upper side of feet( fingers)

Also, my gastric levels looks to be lowered.

Please let me know what to be done next.

Just observe for now and update in one week.
 
fitness 5 years ago

sadhus 5 years ago
Hello
I would like to update on my progress...

1. My overall digestion improved well. I feel the urge to eat regular meals since the gas formation is reduced by about 50%.
2. No other significant changes except for on my feet.
3. I had to go out bare foot into dust, meaning, walk on roads and in a national park last week for 2 days. After the days, Whatever is fixed went back. Terrible itching and dryness returned immediately. Also, the cracks.

Please let me know what should be done next.
 
sadhus 5 years ago
Why did you walk bare foot on roads & park.
 
fitness 5 years ago
It was a temple. So, couldn't help it. What I was trying to say is the moment I went in touch with dust, things again worsened.
 
sadhus 5 years ago
Please have one dose and report back in 2 weeks. Just one dose, not daily.

Keep taking pictures of your feet every week and updating me. We can track progress this way.
 
fitness 5 years ago
Sure. I would do it tomorrow. Would I take the dose in night right before sleep, like before?
 
sadhus 5 years ago
Yes.
 
fitness 5 years ago
My skin is definitely responding to the medicine. However, it is very very slow. The digestive system has a noticeable betterment though.
