Baby’s eczema clears up with homeopathy.

6 month old baby boy is brought into the Clinic suffering from bad  eczema (see photo).  It started on his cheeks and then spread onto his arms, legs, stomach, back and hands.  It was very itchy and he kept scratching and scratching.

It looked like a heat rash with little red bumps.  It became worse with any heat, in warm water and was worse at the night.  The poor little boy is suffering.

Normally Mason was a busy, happy little chap but this skin problem was really upsetting him and his mom (and his grandmother!!).

They had been to see a Doctor who had suggested topical cortisone cream and suggested that they cut out milk.  Neither of which helped at all.

What is eczema?

Eczema is a non-contagious inflammatory disease of the skin with much itching and burning.  It may be acute or chronic.  It may occur at any age and may be caused by a variety of internal and external factors.  There are many types of eczema.

Allopathic treatment.

The conventional treatment of eczema is almost entirely in the form of topical therapy.  In the form of emollients and steroid creams.  These can result in systemic side effect and atrophy of the skin.

Using Homeopathy

Homeopathy takes an individual approach to skin diseases. I take into account the full details of the situation and look at all aspects of the child and how they are coping with their situation. I have many homeopathic medicines that will help with eczema, the skill and challenge is to select the appropriate remedy.  This takes time and experience.   I have been practising full time as a homeopath for nearly 20 years and working with skin issues is my passion!

I selected the homeopathic remedy Graphites for Mason due to the roughness, the raised patches and the irritation.  Plus the fact that Mason had to scratch at night and several other considerations.

Results

Mason’s skin cleared up quickly on the Graphites.  It is now a year later and this is the email I received from his mom today.

“Thank you again for helping us thru this. So happy with the results. I have him actively back on his drops for the past three weeks. I just saw a wee spot starting back, within 2-3 days it was gone again 😊 “
