The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Please help, dyshidrotic eczema.

I have a dyshidrotic eczema for about 7 years.
The skin have never been clear. Blisters always come up. I use vaselin to moisturize skin, (fingers and foot). It helps for the old blisters, but the new ones keep coming.
I have tried sulphur (did not help at all). And petroleum and hepar sulph, I can see less blisters, but it not stop. I took 5 pellets three times a day.
What else can I try? And how should I take it? For how long time? Please help. Thank you.

I have ordered psorinum and I have read, people who taking it should avoid coffee. Can I have a strong black tea, or decaff coffee?
And I also read:

'All skin creams, footsprays and similar items should be banned during its use, as these also spoil its action and undo the work it is doing. This especially applies to cortisone creams, zinc-based ointments and footsprays, calamine lotion, zinc and castor oil cream (for baby's nappy rash), anti-fungal creams, etc.'

Can I use vanicream lite lotion, thin layer after shower? My skin is dry.
Please help.
Thanks a lot.

Kadwa, thanks a lot for your answer.

Details of menses are very decisive in selecting remedy for a female patient. On the basis of the information given by you i think that Lycopodium 200 or Graphites 200 may help you.
If your menses are pale and scanty you should take Graphites 200 otherwise you should take Lycopodium 200.

Please take 3 doses of the indicated remedy as follows and report back after 15 days.

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
kadwa last decade
Thank you, Kadwa.

- Are the periods early, regular or late in general?


How long do they last?

4 days.

- Do you suffer from any kind of physical or mental discomfort before, during or after the periods?


- Is the flow scanty, normal or excessive?

Normal to excenssive.

- Is the blood thick bright red or pale watery?

Thick, bright red.

- Do you notice any clots in the flow?


I think I should take Lycopodium 200.
What about decaff coffee or strong black tea?
Do I follow homeo restrictions all 15 days? Or just for first 2 days?
Can I use vaselin, or cream, or lotion?

memnoc last decade
You should take Lycopodium 200. It is better to avoid decaff coffee. One can restrict it's consuption to two cups a day if it is not possible to avoid it. Again there should be a gap of 2 hours between taking decaff coffee and the remedy. Strong black tea is not good for those with digestion problems.
The restrictions apply for 15 days. But you can relax them as had been told earlier if these are very difficult for you to follow.
You can use vaseline. It is better to avoid creams and lotions during the treatment period.
kadwa last decade
I have new blisters every day. But I have less blisters and they are smaller size, then I have before.
memnoc last decade
If the remedy has favourably affected your digestion and mental state, you should repeat the remedy in the same way as you did earlier. The redosing should be done only when there is a significant relapse of the overall gains you have had from the earlier dosing and not earlier.
kadwa last decade
Kadwa, thanks a lot for your help.
Yes it, definitely, has favourably affected my mental state, I am not so sure about digestive system (I think this is the same).
Should I repeat it tomorrow, or wait about 5 to 15 days?
Today is the day 16, after I started it.
memnoc last decade
It is always better to let the earlier dose work internally if improvement is taking place under it's influence. Redosing should be done when there is a significant relapse.
kadwa last decade
After another 15 days, I have same results as after the first 15 days. New blisters every day. But they are smaller.
Should I repeat the remedy in the same way as I did earlier?
Thank you.
memnoc last decade
Yes. You may repeat the remedy in the same way as you did earlier if there is no improvement in your condition.
kadwa last decade
Memnoc - Did the remedy finally resolve your condition?
mindful2991 last decade
No. But it is much better.
