Homeopathic remedies are not a new thing in our world. Alongside several alternate therapies, homeopathy has been one of the more successful ones in curing people of several diseases, including skin disorders like eczema. The homeopathic treatment of eczema has existed for several years and hundreds of people who have been treated for eczema by homeopathy have claimed to have benefitted greatly from it.
The treatment of eczema by homeopathy includes several traditional homeopathic medicines, but before trying these on oneself or a loved one, it is important to consult a trained and certified homeopathy professional, because specific medicines can only be prescribed after a thorough analysis of the specific individual.
So, what is eczema? Eczema is a condition of the skin which most commonly causes skin to become dry and red and itchy. Sometimes, eczema may lead to blisters and oozing lesions, but eczema can also result in dry and scaly skin. Homeopathic treatment of eczema can be done through a variety of specific medications. Practitioners of homeopathy strongly recommend Rhus toxicodendron (Rhus Tox). They believe that for eczema with blister-like eruptions that look red and swollen, are intensely itchy may respond positively to this remedy.
Another homeopathic eczema remedy is Mezereum. To quote from an article from Progressive Health Nutraceuticals, “Intensely itching eruptions start as blisters, then ooze and form thick crusts, and scratching can lead to thickened skin. Cold applications often help the itch. A craving for fat and a tendency to feel better in open air are other indications for Mezereum.” Dulcamara (Solanum dulcamara), also known as bitter nightshade, is also a recommended homeopathic remedy for eczema. According to the website of the USA-based company, Progressive Health Nutraceuticals, the main usage of the bitter nightshade is for medical conditions of the skin, mucous membranes, and membranes around the joints.
