Severe aggravation after Rhus Tox 200c for pompholyx/dyshidrotic eczema

If anyone is willing to help me I would be so grateful.
My situation right now is an utter nightmare. After taking Rhus Tox for pompholyx on my 3 fingers, which was getting a little out of hand (no pun intended), I woke up the next day with the worst flare of my life. The pain and wounds that honestly look like burn wounds are so painful and as soon as I move my fingers the skin cracks and rips open everywhere. On the third day after the dose, it has now spread all over my palms and to all the other fingers. Where it has spread, there are blisters. I'm so scared those blisters will also turn into the same 3rd degree burn wounds I have on my 3 fingers. Please someone help turn this around. I'm so sorry I self medicated.
Thank you!!!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
After using the new Remedy Finder on here, it's Sulphur that came up. Is it safe to take that, cause I did hear that Sulphur sometimes acts as an antidote to Rhus Tox, right?

How many doses of Rhus-t 200c were taken?
sameervermani 6 years ago
A single dose only.
EliSka 6 years ago
Usually a single dose will wear off eventually.

But, if it is very problematic, do this:

Put one pellet of Rhus-t 200c in a 16 oz disposable cup, fill it up with water, you dont have to wait for it to dissolve, just stir once, and then go to the bathroom and discard the water (including the pellet) in the bathroom sink. Open the tap, Re-fill the cup with the tap running at a strong force, and throw the water away again. Repeat this process of refilling the cup and discarding the water 6 times. The 7th time you fill it, take a small sip from there.

This should calm the aggravation down.

Report in a few hours after this.

Thank you for the advice, I will do it right now.
Is this about diluting it to such a tiny trace that it will calm down the aggravation?
Or is it about visualizing throwing out the full dose as if I were to flush it out of my system as well?

Google "aggravation zapper" by Elaine Lewis on hpathy site.

While she gives this technique a name, it is really just a highly diluted dose of the same remedy that can lessen aggravation.

Thank you, I am going to wait another couple of hours to see how I feel. Hands still red and burning.
EliSka 6 years ago
Yes, if it does not calm down in a day or so, an anti-dote might be needed.
sameervermani 6 years ago
Ok, just had another flare and the itch is unstoppable. It's still burning and red but I also see new blisters. Also the joints in the worst affected parts are supet inflamed, swollen and painful making it impossible for me to bend my fingers. I really need to find an antidote if someone is willing to help me, because the pain and discomfort is making me unable to function. I can't use my hands and I can't use my head either because the pain and itch are unbearable.
Thanks for helping!

Maybe it's important to add that I also have pain (inflammation) in my coccyx since the R Tox 200c and a flare up of my long gone plantar fasciitis. I do have spondylitis since years but that has also flared massively since the dose. One thing that imprived though, strangely, is my brain fog after eating, which I used to get after every meal.

*improved, not imprived

If you read the article you may want to try one more time and go to cup 20.
simone717 6 years ago
I would NOT try another dose of Rhus-t.

I would recommend you to take one dose of Sulphur 6x using olfaction.

Procure Sulphur 6x liquid alcohol based dilution, open the lid and bring it close to your nose, and take just 1 sharp short sniff from it such that you feel the alcohol smell in your nose.

Report in 3 days after this.
sameervermani 6 years ago
Thank you both.
Dr sameervermani, we have no access here where I live to Sulphur in alcohol. I do have Boiron Sulphur 6x pellets and DHU Sulphur 30x. That's all we can get our hands on here I'm afraid and ordering online to where I live is not an option as it will take a month before it arrives.
Thank you so much!

How can I manage it with Sulphur 6x pellets?
EliSka 6 years ago
Please anyone? I can't stand this horrible agony, the itch and pain is driving me crazy.
Thank you
EliSka 6 years ago
Try a very diluted dose of 6x.

Put 2 pills into 250 ml of water and let dissolve. Then shake the bottle 4 times. Then take what would be a capful and put that into another bottle of 250 ml of water. Take a tsp as a dose. Let it sit in mouth for 20 seconds before swallowing.

Do not eat or drink 15 minutes before or after.

Would Sulphur being the antidote now, also be the remedy for my dyshidrosis? I read the specifics that belong to Sulphur and boy does that sound like me! How long do I have to wait before I could start a remedy to cure the dyshidrosis? I also have a few more very painful and debilitating health issues if anyone is willing to take my case. I've lived with only functioning for about 20% of my usual since 7 years and now I also have a little girl to take care of so it't getting quite impossible.
Very thankful already for the help so far, hoping someone would take my case.
EliSka 6 years ago
It may or may not be the right remedy. A lay person reading a remedy can always relate to significant parts of it, especially when it comes to a remedy like Sulphur, which has an image of the sickness of the entire mankind in certain ways.

Please give this 2-3 days, and then we can re-assess. A lot more information would be needed for finding the right remedy for your condition.

I can take your case.
sameervermani 6 years ago
Thank you sameervermani,

That means a lot. If you could let me know what to do next or the information you would need to look at my case, that would be mosg helpful.
Thanks again
