Itchy rash/hives after swimming and difficulty in breathing after shower Page 3 of 3

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Merc Sol is an antidote to Lachesis. So, it is doing its work.

I would suggest you to keep repeating MERC SOL 200C whenever you have these rashes.

We will change remedy only when MERC SOL stops working. This modality 'worse swimming' is a very rare one and I am not getting a suitable remedy to address this modality. So, I am trying to work backwards by antidoting the remedy which caused it on the first place.

I know for a fact now that itching increases on eating. I ate at 1 today, 3 hours after swimming. Till 1 there was negligible itching. 2 onward it began worsening. Body heat increases, especially in the affected area and it begins to prickle. I'm concerned about the rising surface area though, it's appearing on new areas.

How should I take Merc Sol and when? The rash comes every time I swim.

SULPHUR and PHOSPHORUS have the modality 'worse washing' and 'worse after food' and both these remedies may work on you provided your mentals are close to either of the remedies.

If you are introverted, try sulphur and if you are an extrovert, try Phosphorus.

Possibly, one of the remedies will work on this problem.

For skin itching and burning sensations, Sulphur is more effective in general.

Try in 30C potency once in 4 hours...maximum 6 doses. Let me know what happens after swimming.

For the time being, don't take Merc Sol.

I was given sulphur 6 in pill form to eat for two months. I used to take one dose daily for 15 days. The response was good so it was reduced to one dose every other day and then to one dose once a week. The rash had cleared out, but I wasn't swimming. This was in Jan this year. But the rash came back as soon as I started swimming.

Do you think phosphorus is my remedy?

No, I think if you were responding well to Sulphur, you should take it again in higher potency.

Take in 30C potency initially each dose 3 to 4 hours apart when you have the rashes. Take it as long as it is required. Stop when the rashes reduce.

Do it again the next time you have rashes. Continue like that and then you will see things getting better gradually.

I feel you should go for Sulphur.

Hi Rishimba

The situation worsened to a level where I had to go in for allopathic help. I know allopathic treatment can't cure me, but I have a shoot at the end of the month and the skin had inflamed to a level where I would have been rejected.

I will have to continue that treatment but I know only homeopathy can help me. Right now I'm on steroidal treatment. I went swimming today, so far that rash is under control. But I feel sick and bloated. I'm constipated even.

Is there a medicine you could suggest that would not interfere with the steroids and continue to heal me?

If you feel sick and bloated, take SEPIA 200C some two to three doses, each dose 8 hours apart.

As such I don't know if this would still work against steroids, but this is the best bet for you looking at your symptoms and modalities.

Let me know when you are off steroids. If you think an exclusive homeopathic treatment would be required at a later stage, we will start from the beginning by antidoting all that you have taken earlier.
