Att: Dr Sameer - allergyHi Sameer,
I am so impressed by your skills that I bring you a new patient :-).
My 6 years old son is having allergy symptoms at the moment. I already started antihistamine, but then I remembered you.
His eyes are swollen and from the other nostril a clear discharge is coming out. When he touches the wood, he gets eczema on legs and wrists.
He has a history of atopic eczema and that is because he was treated with Calc Carb at the age of 3.
After that the eczema explodes sometimes. Especially in summer and late summer, when sitting on the grass with shorts.
The eczema is small pots like utricaria, very itchy.
Under age of 3 he had an allergy for raw egg. But now it is over.
Nowadays he gets allergy symptoms of kiwi-fruit and almonds.
Appearance: very blond, blue eyes, big head, shorter than average, but long legs. Very thin hair. Smiles a lot and is very 'cute'.
Dislikes: many things, so many that I cannot recall.
Appetite: eats little bit normal food. Never stops eating sweets.
Sleep: good. But I think he never sleeps all night throuh, but gets awake and falls asleep again. Would like to stay up at nights and sleep in.
Temperature: more warm than cold. But fingers freeze up easily in winter.
- he is very techically orientated. Knows all about my gsm, chages pictures, uses blue tooth etc. Also has learned the dvd-players etc faster than the big brother.
- likes gymnastics, but other wise is not keen on sports
- calm and thinks before he acts. Sometimes slow motion
- Likes to stay at home most of the time
- diplomatic with other children. Gets along well. Very easy-going.
- easily scared. Frightened of aggressive children. His friends are also calm.
- If somebody teases, he goes away crying and does not tell anybody.
- the teacher says he is very stubborn and determined (but when I compere him to my other son - no way). The teacher also says his level in mathematics is high. The teacher also says that is is shy and afraid of speaking in a group.
- he has problems in speaking: cannot say 'r' or 'l'. So the speak is not clear.
- learned to read and write early
- as a baby his milestones were maybe a bit late, not much though. He was also very very attached to me.
Waiting for your reply,

His eyes are itching and the eczema is worse. All legs are rough and the hands and wrists are itching, too.
We live up north so the pollen has arrived just this week.
Maria&boys 9 years agoSo, over all you would describe him as mild/yielding in temperament ?
Is he very scrupulous ?
Any fear of pointed objects or pins/needles ?
Does he have any problems with finger nails or toe nails ? Any spots there ?
sameervermani 9 years agoHi,
Thanks for replying.
Yes, he is mild and yielding temperament. He can be stubborn, but it does not last long and he gives up.
He is detailed and careful. He hates it if he won't succeed what ever he is doing. He is a perfectionist. (I see a lot same in him and his father).
No problems with nails.
Maria&boys 9 years agoPlease give him 3 doses of Silicea 30c , and report in 10 days.
sameervermani 9 years agoThanks, I will. I have thought myself that he is Silica, so I have that already at home.
Maria&boys 9 years agoHi Sameer,
I gave Silicea 10 days ago.
Day 2: he was weeping all day long. One day only.
Day 3: he got red eczema behind the knees. The next day the redness diminished but did not go totally away before day 9.
Day 5: he said to me 'I will kick your ass off' :-) after I told him to go and wash his hands - really he has never ever said anything rude in his life. That happened once.
Day 6: he was sneezing only for this one day.
Day 7-8: we went for a weekend to a house where are two dogs. This boy loves animals and was carrying them all the time. He has never showed any allergy towards dogs (he has had allergy only against tree pollen and some food) and we have visited this house many times before.
But this time he had clear and strong allergy symptoms: he had eczema on legs and tighs, on wrists and around the neck. The eczema was not very itchy so at night he was scratching himself only a little bit.
Day 9: Back at home. The skin is calm and very good.
Day 10, today: he was violently sneezing this morning. The wheather has warmed up and I the worse pollen time is in hands.
I can't comment his mental state, because this boy is always happy. Weeping is rare. So he has still been happy.
Maria&boys 9 years agoHi Sameer,
This is the past week:
Day 1 - meaning after the last mail: legs were sore at night, but that went by (he has had quite lot growing pains during last years. Not for a couple of months).
Day 1-5: weeping a lot. More difficult than normally. Even kicking. Sleeps well and deep, but still tired all day long
Day 4: Tired, not happy and the legs started itching a lot. Dry eczema all legs.
Day 5: Legs are still itching. And at night he got so bad growing pains, that he had to take a hot bath at 3 am. That is the only one that helps.
Day 6: Headache, nose is blocked, very tired. I thought he is really getting sick (also the father and the brother have mild cold symptoms). The night was difficult.
Day 7: Afterall he did not get fever and did not get worse. Today he is quite fine, but the nose is still blocked/running. The skin is a bit better.
What are your conclusions?
Maria&boys 9 years agoSo, do you think the Silicea is giving him benefit ?
I see a return of old symptoms in your report as a good sign. But maybe you can tell me what your overall impression of Silica is ?
sameervermani 9 years agoHi,
Silicea';s biggest effect is, that it brought up the weeping side of him. He is not still as happy as normally.
The skin was very good at the beginning. Then it became worse. Today it is not as good as in the beginning, but not that bad either.
I have seen with my other son and Medorrhinum, what kind of improvement a right remedy can make! I consider that a 'right remedy'. Silicea has not brought this kind of positive sides out of him. So from this point of view I don't think Silicea is the right remedy - unless it is good that a child, who tries to be as good as possible to be loved, is breaking free?
You ask me a difficult question. I have been active in homeopathy for 5 years, but never been seeing how the classical homeopathy works.
