The conventional treatment for eczema is not very successful in curing the disease. Homeopathy considers that as eczema is caused due to defect in immune response or reaction of the body to certain stimuli it cannot be treated by applying lotions and creams, externally.
According to homeopathy any illness is caused due to disharmony within your body. And the symptoms are just an expression of this disturbance. Hence the imbalance needs to be treated rather than the symptoms of the disease. Treatment of any illness has to be individualized as every person reacts differently to any imbalance in the body. No one single homeopathic remedy is effective for everyone with one type of disease. The homeopathic doctor after taking a detailed history and examining you will prescribe any medication. Homeopathic remedies do not treat only the symptoms in a patient but treats the person as a whole (both body and mind) to cure the disharmony within your body.
In eczema also the aim of homeopathic remedies is to treat the person as a whole rather than treating only the disease. Eczema is considered as an external presentation of an internal disorder due to lowered vitality and immunity of a person according to homeopathy.
Homeopathic remedies aim to boost your immune system and treat the disease. Your homeopath doctor will choose a remedy (specific to the individual) by assessing your physical, mental and emotional states, family history, and the past health.
Your overall susceptibility to factors such as family history (genetic predisposition), sensitivity to certain food, allergens, metals and chemicals are considered before any remedy is prescribed to correct these factors.
