This is an extremely common condition and generally starts with the affected area of skin showing a greater degree of redness than the surrounding skin. Small, blister-like swellings develop, and as they rupture, they leave crusts or pits which ooze a clear, honey-like fluid. As they heal, they become scaly and very itchy, especially at night in the warmth of the bed. To deal with Eczema properly constitutional treatment and dietary advice are required.
Eczema is often an indication that other allergies and sensitivities exist in the patient and great care is needed to unravel the totality of the symptoms and provide treatment that is not likely to produce an early aggravation. However, the following symptom treatments will help to alleviate the unpleasantness.
Eczema has been treated by homeopathy.
Eczema requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
