16 month old baby eczema

We brought her to a homeopath yesterday who prescribed 200c to be taken at night. Is that common? What's the difference between taking it in the morning and at night?

I am supposed to start tonight so any immediate response from anyone is greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
sorry, it's sulphur 200c

Homeopathy seems to be funny, but it is not.

Certain medicines have certain aggravation periods and it is best to avoid taking them, during those periods.

Lyco has an aggravation from 4P.M to 8 P.M

Sulphur around noon.

Nux.V during morning.

These are just some examples.

So, do as your homeopath suggested. There will be a reason for him telling so.

sulphur at night?
maheeru last decade
Thanks Murthy. That you wrote about the aggravation timing for sulphur was around noon has put me at ease. I was worried about her not being able to sleep. She is already very sleep deprived because of itchiness during the night.

Dear maheeru

I am aware of the 'Sulphur in morning, Nux.v in night' advice.

however, I observe that it is not really sacrosanct.

what is important is to avoid the medicines during the more decisive times of aggravation.

that is why i assured the patient's parent.

To my experience, sulphur 200 at night causes unwanted aggravation/insomnia(best time being in the morning during the window 9-11 am). But dear murthy as you said above, the homeopath could have had his reasons in prescribing so.
maheeru last decade
The homeopath said it would cause sleepiness so it's best to give at night. In any case, I did give her one dose last night and she has two more to go.

I wouldn't say that she became extraordinarily sleepy but she was able to sleep. She woke up a few times at night anyway, with and without medication. In actual fact, she was able to go back to sleep faster than when she was without medicine or taking sulphur 30.

I also noticed that the heat and the redness on her thighs subsided. Does that mean that the medicine is working?

You asked a simple qestion. We gave a simple answer. : )

Unless we know, what for you went to the doctor, we can't say whether the medicine worked or not.

True. I haven't given much details.

My daughter had rash on her face when she was two months old. We changed her milk formula to soy and the face got much better.

Then the rash flared up again when we moved abroad and had to change the formula to another brand (still soy). Her face (left cheek especially) and right hand were really bad.

The doctor then prescribed sulphur 12c and afterwards psorinum. It didn't help much and since she was put on goat's milk 50 dilution because of diarrhea to full strength, she was not growing well and constantly woke up at night, crying.

We changed to another doctor but only steriods and antihistamine were prescibed.
We had to put a bit of steroids on her face and hand. And being desperate for the right formula for her, we tried, as advised by this second doctor, a hypoallergenic formula. The redness on her face cleared up. But since we read about the MSG content in hypoallergenic formula, we tried another soy brand and her face stayed stable.

At the same time, we were using Halicar (10% cardiospermum) cream.

We wanted to find a real homeopath and finally started with a third doctor. By this time, she was about 8 months and her face was almost cleared up. Her hand was still bad but it seemed like the rash went downwards to her thighs and then feet. Since then, her thigh were the worst.

She had taken sulphur 06LM, 200c, chelidonium 5, sulphur 30, chelidonium 30, petroleum 15, sarsaparilla 15 and thuya 15 after vaccination.

Her condition was good during summer despite the hot and humid weather. But as soon as fall hits, it goes bad and nby now we moved again, and we brought her to a fourth doctor who prescribed 200c.

I know this is rough. If you need further details, please ask. Thank you for all your help.

Sulphur acts for a long time. How many doses did the doctor prescrbe?

gavinimurthy last decade
This time with the 200c is 3 consecutive nights. We are supposed to call him after three weeks.

Before, with the 06LM and 200c (almost 7 months ago), only one dose in the micropellets taken a few times throughout the day. With sulpher 15 and 30 (also a few months ago) before, 2 pellets 2 times a day.

Thanks, wt

Also last night (2nd dose) was not as easy as the night before.

She woke up around the 1am-2am mark for a longer time (over 1 hour but this is not unusual as she used to wake up for as long as 2 hours) and then several times after that although she was able to go back to sleep without much fuss. Her skin this morning seemed to have calmed down especially her face and her eyes were not swollen. But then she scratched herself hard and her legs became all red and scaly slight bleeding.

Would that be the reason why it was prescribed for night (ie. it would be itchy and she would scratch a lot and more damage would be done if it's during the day)?

Thanks so much,

Your homeopath knows what he is doing, and the why of it.

Stick to him.

He will be able to cure your child's problem.

Thanks for your reassurance Murthy. You are very kind. I am totally new with homeopathic medicine and do feel lost when there is an information overload. All I want is to ease the poor girl's sufferings.
nanawt last decade
After 3 doses of sulphur 200c (given 3 consecutive nights), skin got better for about 3 days and started getting worse again.
It is now the 8th day from the last dose.

Is it already a long enough period for sulphur to act or we have to wait even longer? Or is it an indication for stronger potency or for an alternative remedy?

Thanks again...
nanawt last decade
You have to wait for atleast a month.

Contact your homeopath in case of further doubts.

gavinimurthy last decade
OK, we'll be patient. This is a new homeopathic doctor and he doesn't agree with the previous one...so we're a bit confused as what works and what doesn't.

In the meantime, is there anything I should avoid feeding her or putting on her which may antidote the remedy?

Thanks so much.
