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

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
