Homeopathy Healed A Patient Of Chronic Corticosteroid Dependent Eczema Incredibly

A 39-year-old female patient, Mrs. S. Y. (PIN: 30271) visited Life Force and started treatment for her complaint of Eczema in 2016.

She was suffering from eczema for the last 7 years. The lesions of eczema were present on her hands, legs, and nails, particularly on the right side. She was experiencing severe, intense itching, and burning pain in her lesions of eczema. She was extremely tired and frustrated due to her skin condition and application of cortisone creams. Whenever she tried to reduce the dosage of corticosteroids, the complaints would either aggravate or the lesions would re-appear.


Physical Generals:

The patient’s appetite was average. She had cravings for sour and salty foods. Her thirst for water was average. Her sleep was refreshing. She suffered from constipation as well in the past few months.

Psychological and Family Make-Up:

The patient mentioned that, due to certain stresses in the household, she was experiencing irritability & anger. This led to quarrel among her few family members. She developed a symptom of forgetfulness. The patient was a housewife. She was staying with her husband, in-laws, and children. Her son was 14 years old. She was mild and sensitive. 

Self and Family’s Medical History:

The patient had no medical history of any other major illness. Also, no history of any major illness was present in her family.

At Life Force:

After studying the case in detail, Dr. Shah prescribed some research-based homeopathic medicines along with some dietary tips to the patient. The patient was also informed about tapering the dose of steroids and not stopping it all of a sudden as it can aggravate the disease.


At the first follow-up on 2nd December 2016, the patient mentioned that the symptoms of itching, burning, and dryness of palms and hands were still present. A mild increase in her symptoms had occurred due to the sudden stoppage of cortisone creams. However, her relief in the dryness of the skin and itching was better.

On 25th January 2017, the patient reported that there was a mild improvement in her relief from eczema. She mentioned that the patches were not increasing any further, and the itching was better. Her relief from burning was also getting better. The cuts and cracks were present over her heels were better by 30%.

On 27th September 2017, the patient mentioned that her recovery from the skin condition further improved. Her skin lesions were healing. Up to 50% of her lesions were resolving slowly.

On 1st March 2018, the patient mentioned that her relief from eczema was improving further with 80% healing of her eczema-affected skin. She mentioned that her relief from irritability, which she was facing due to her eczema, was improved as well.


This case highlights that eczema can be wonderfully treated with Homeopathy. Homeopathy restored the healthier itch-free skin, although the patient was dependent on heavy cortisone creams. And, homeopathy can treat eczema incredibly and safely without any side effects.
