The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Please help with eczema


I'm a 38 year old male suffering from eczema on both hands. The eczema is usually not dry. It is bubbly and very itchy and I am unable to stop scratching it until it weeps or bleeds. After it weeps it will crust over with a yellowish crust.

The fluid that comes out is watery and has a yellow color and a slightly sour odor to it.

Sometimes the eczema will dry out and my skin will crack and bleed.

At one point it was so bad that 2 of my fingers were swollen up very large and I was unable to move them. I used steroids for relief at this point.

The itch is relieved somewhat in fresh, cool air.

The itch is worse in damp, hot weather.

I don't think I could put a specific time of day when the symptoms are worse or better.

This started about 8 monthes ago, shortly after I quit smoking.

Some additional information about me.

I am married, no children
I generally feel depressed.
I sometimes think about suicide but would never act on it.
I prefer to be alone and avoid people and social situations.
I experience flatulence and some heartburn from eating. Especially after evening meal.
I crave both salty and sweet foods and also enjoy beer.
I am overweight, but not obese.
I experience dull pains in the right side of my chest around the lower rib-cage.
I often experience a stiff neck that causes headaches in my forehead.
I occasionally experience hay fever and asthma but am not on any medicine for these.
My tongue has a thin white coating on it and I have a sour taste in my mouth most of the time.

I have tried graphites 200CH once daily for 1 week previously with no success.

I have also been given natrum muriaticum MK 3 times previously which seemed to help reduce the itching.

Thank you!!

This is day 2 since my last dose and the eczema is flaring up right now. It's very itchy and red and beginning to swell.

I usually do not remember my dreams. If I do, it's only a little bit and they are usually disturbing or unpleasant.
I am very sensitive to temperature. If it's a bit cold I must be completely covered with many layers. If it's a bit hot, I sleep with no covers and still sweat.

d)Are you fearful of anything eg: Animals, people, being alone, darkness, death, disease, robbers, thunder, storm, high places.
No particular fears.

e)Are you anxious about anything: if yes, give details.
Generally anxious about finances as money is always tight. It's an ongoing stress, but it isn't serious.
My self-confidence is low. If I see others whispering I usually think they are saying negative things about me. I also imagine that others think negatively of me. I also think I am somewhat of a failure.

I will want to get revenge, but almost never act on that feeling.

i)Does your pride get hurt easily.

Yes. Life just always seems like a struggle and has been for what feels like 30 years now so I see no hope of that ever changing. Feelings of hopelessness / despair.

k)Do you like to share your problems.

l)Effect of consolation.
I like being consoled. But it also makes me uncomfortable.

m)Do you ever become suicidal when? How.
Yes, when new stresses appear, it brings on the feeling of hopelessness that things will ever get better which makes me want to not live any more. I restrain myself from acting on these feelings though and just try to keep going out of responsibility.

n)Memory- quality if poor, for what ( eg. Names, places, people, what you read).
Memory is generally good except for with names. I often forget the names of things and people and it takes me a minute to remember them.

No. I often feel like weeping, but seem to be unable to weep.

p)Are you easily irritated. What makes you angry, how do you express it.
Not easily irritated, unless someone is complaining. Complaining irritates me.
I don't get angry easily. When I am angry I try to withdraw and swear a lot to myself about the situation.

q)Are you destructive.

Generally good at making decisions. I follow a logical procedure of weighing out pros and cons or various options.

s)Do you like company or like to remain alone.
I prefer to be alone.

t)How seriously are you affected by disorder and uncleanness in your surroundings.
I tolerate some disorder and uncleanliness around me. But if it gets excessive I will go on a cleaning and organizing spree.

u)How does failure appear to you?
Failures get added to my list of reasons why I find life hard or why I am a failure.

v)Are there any matters that you deeply dislike?
I dislike the state of politics in the world. But I've mostly let that go as I feel like I can't do anything to change it. The world seems unfair.

There is nothing I deeply like. I find I don't feel any good or happy or positive feelings deeply.

x)Are you affectionate? How does others sorrow affect you?
I am not affectionate.
Others sorrow does not affect me much.

y)Any present fears in your life or future.
Mild fear of financial loss - for example, not being able to pay the bills and losing our home.

z)Any present life or future life desires.
My main desires are for my hands to stop itching and swelling and causing discomfort as the discomfort is very stressful.
I also desire just for life to be a bit easier and not feel so hard all the time.
