Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does it take to cure eczema with homeopathy?

With homeopathy, it is purely an individual case study that decides the prognosis and the time to cure each patient. It might take a day or up to 1-2 years depending on the individual’s symptoms. Stubborn and old cases of eczema tend to take a couple of months, while newly diagnosed cases respond within weeks.

2. What other care should be taken along with homeopathy?
  • Use cotton bedsheets to avoid overheating and perspiration in bed.
  • Wear cotton clothes and avoid wool, as well as other artificial fibers.
  • Wash clothes in non-biological and preferably unperfumed washing powders and do not use fabric conditioners.
  • Avoid perfumed soaps and bubble baths and use lukewarm water for bathing.
  • After swimming in chlorinated water, do not forget to have a shower.
  • If the hands are affected, use gloves for household chores, gardening, DIY, etc.
  • Protect young babies away from direct sun exposure, but avoid alcohol-based sun blocks.
  • Trim children's fingernails and use mittens if necessary.
  • Vacuum clean mattresses and keep the bedroom  dust-free as dust-mite allergy is common.
  • Avoid foods that appear to provoke or aggravate the condition.
  • Use a non-medicated moisturizer as often as needed on the skin to keep it moist and hydrated, preventing cracks and worsening of eczema.
