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!!!

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?

A single dose only.

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 last year

Yes, if it does not calm down in a day or so, an anti-dote might be needed.

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.
