rubric please!

Does anyone know what the rubric would be for extremely itchy hands ameliorated by burning or very, very hot water?

Thank you, Sajjad. It's not only at night. It's throughout the day also. The other thing is the itch is ameliorated but the skin is damaged after running the hot water on it. I get little pustules and swelling as a result. I looked in a few repertories but couldn't find anything like that.

I'll check out the Lith c.
maryo last decade
warm bathing ameliorates may be helpful.
erika last decade
you may be burning the exposed skin by bathing too hot. Try some cantharis or urtica urens (considering the itch this may be better) to calm things down from the burn initially.

For research let us consider this also.

Well dear,the skin will be damaged by very hot water.It cannot resist.It is quite natural.

sajjadakram635 last decade
well, then maybe the symptom is a bit of a red herring with so many solutions ???
any other symptoms that would help better maryo - such as when it started and what may have caused the initial itching? any burning itching or just itching? anything else?
erika last decade
Also consider erika's suggestion.

Rhus tox is the first medicine to be considered, and the next in line is anacardium.

However, it is not advisable to take any medicine, without taking a full case, if there are other problems.

In case the patient is healthy in all other aspects, and has only this problem (which is very unlikely), then it may be better to try Rhustox first.

gavinimurthy last decade
The incessant itching is sometimes relieved by 'scalding' the parts, as it is called by some who are poisoned with Rhus, by 'scalding' with water as hot as it is possible to bathe the parts in.

Thank you, all. I appreciate all your input.

Hi Erika, I don't know if you remember me, but you were helping me about a yr and a half ago. Because I am so sensitive to remedies because I didn't know enough at the time, I was taking too many remedies in such a short time period on my own which created havoc on my vital force.

Anyway, my problems started to exteriorize at too fast a pace, and I went into a Psorinum state and became reclusive for many, many months. During that period I saw a professional homeopath. My body was so out of balance it didn't help. Everything I took gave me terrible, terrible aggravations. I did deep cleanses and colonics and it cleared my skin 75-80%. Also, diet helped.

Now my hands clear up for a while, then the rash comes back again. That rash lasts for months and is not even a fraction as bad as the Psorinum state I was in. My mental state is better now than before I started homeopathy, but the road I took I wouldn't recommend to anyone else.

I have been studying homeopathy in the meantime on my own and taking some sporatic seminars.

I am ready to start taking a constitutional remedy again soon (after the holidays), but I wanted to research on my own the rubrics before I went to back to my homeopath.

One thing I did learn through all this is that homeopathy needs to be respected and used with great care. Not only with myself but with another family member also I have seen damage done by homeopathy not used the right way. Sometimes the damage can be permanent.

You have given me good advice in the past, and it was nice to see your post. Season's Greetings to all!

Along with itching of hands...what other symptoms do you experience currently?

What ailments have you been through from childhood till now ?

Hi Maryo
yes I do remember you! Happy festive winter season to you too!
I am glad you got professional advice and admire your study of homeopathy!
the rhus-tox suggested by murthy may be the best acute choice here, but as you are sensitive then start low and go slow!
If it is rubrics and not remedies you are researching, as you point out, then carry on and look at rubrics physical and emotional before returning to your homeopath...good luck , cheers for now erika
erika last decade
Sajjad & Murthy are correct re Rhus Tox. If you need further confirmation, go to the George Vithoulkas YouTube video on "AIDS, Skin Diseases and an Anthracinum Case." At 1:58:25 he talks about the peculiarity of Rhus Tox & Rhus Venenata regarding scalding water.

After hearing this, you will need no further deliberation about choosing the correct remedy!

I had thought I was just a weirdo re the scalding water (orgasmic!) on the rash and was still searching for the correct remedy... until I listened to this lecture. What a godsend -- Rhus Tox has been The Answer for me -- and for so many other symptoms besides the rash (for instance, Shingles & RA, AND my hair stopped falling out)!!

Don't know if I can post a link here but I'll try:
