Skin Diseases - 6 Homeopathic Medicines for Treating it

MD - Alternate Medicine, DNHE, BHMS
Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Skin Diseases - 6 Homeopathic Medicines for Treating it

‘If you don’t bathe properly, you’ll get rashes’. We’ve all heard this statement when we were young, but being unhygienic is not the only cause for eczema. Skin conditions such as eczema, allergic dermatitis, urticaria, skin allergy, psoriasis, etc. are usually symptoms of a larger constitutional problem. Thus, merely treating the visible rash will not cure the problem. Homeopathy is an effective form of treatment for skin diseases as it addresses the root cause of the problem.

When it comes to homeopathy, no one medicine can be used universally. This is because homeopathic prescriptions depend on the symptoms presented and the mental state of the person.

Here are some of the common homeopathic remedies prescribed for skin disorders.

1. Graphites: This is used to treat a number of skin conditions. Some of the symptoms it can address are:

  • Moist scabby eruptions on joints, between fingers, behind the ears or on the scalp

  • Dry and scaly skin

  • Fissured eczema that bleeds or has a thick gooey discharge

  • Itchy eczema on the scalp and face

2. Arsenicum: Arsenicum is prescribed to treat chronic eczema, psoriasis and urticaria. Some of the visible symptoms it helps treat are:

  • Thickened skin

  • Itching and inflammation of the skin

  • Pimples and nettle rash

  • Ulcers that burn and ooze discharge

  • Repercussed hives

3. Sulphur: Any skin condition that seems to feel aggravated or burns after washing can be treated with sulphur. Some of the symptoms it treats are:

  • Coarse skin with a tendency to have pustular eruptions

  • Dry and itchy scalp

  • Eruption with yellow crusts

  • Itching in the folds of the skin

  • Slow growing or brittle nails

  • Dry skin around the corners of the mouth and around the nostrils.

4. Mezereum: Skin allergies and conditions? that are accompanied by intense itching can be treated with mezereum. It is usually used to treat symptoms like:

  • Crustiness and itching

  • Scabs with thick pus

  • Neuralgic pain

  • Itchiness that gets worse at night

5. Rhus Toxicodendron: This can be used to treat a number of skin conditions such as

  • Eruptions with rheumatic pains

  • Extreme itchiness and persistent tingling sensations

  • Skin covered with small cysts filled with fluid that have a red areola around them.

6. Natrum Meriaticum: This can be used to treat both dry skin as well as moist eruptions. Some of the symptoms it addresses are:

  • Blisters filled with fluids in the joints

  • Moist eczema that does not itch

  • Eczema that oozes pus

  • Itchy hives caused by allergic reactions

I have some skin problems such acne and pimples. I have been consulted many doctors but I didn't get relief.
Dear, These are the causes of acne: • excessive sebum production (sebum is oily secretion from the gland). • Due to hormonal imbalance. These are the methods & instructions to avoid acne: • To control the sebum secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. * Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. * Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin.

You can wash the hair with a paste made from Neem leaves. This is particularly effective for hair loss caused due excessive build up of scalp oil or invasive skin infections. For restoring the alkaline balance of the scalp and preventing hair fall, you can follow this with washing the hair with apple cider vinegar. Other homemade pastes that can be very useful include a mixture prepared from adding honey and olive oil to some cinnamon (dalchini) powder.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

Avil & citrazin is not a permanent treatment for itching please give m another advise.
Hello, we need to find out the cause for itching before treatment. There are causes like urticaria, eczema, allergic reactions, liver and renal systemic causes, contact dermatitis etc. Some topical therapy, soothening agents like calamine lotion or moisturiser should also be tried along with antihistaminics like avil or ceterezine.
