A 51 year-old woman came to see the practitioner because 15 years before, her doctor had diagnosed as eczema, an inflamed area on her left leg and foot that constantly itched. From that time, she had been plagued with intense irritation and dry cracks continually appearing and disappearing on the foot with liquid discharge. At times she could neither wear socks nor shoes. She had tried many creams and salves but nothing helped her condition. The practitioner gave her:
CC21.6 Eczema... in water 6TD for 3 days, then in pills TDS
The only improvement after 3 weeks was that the itching was a little less. After another month of taking the combo, there was a further 10% improvement. At this point, the patient was advised to make the combo in oil and apply it externally as well as take it orally.
A month later, CC15.6 Sleep disorders was added to the above combo because she could not sleep at night. Three months later, she reported that the itching and liquid discharge was reduced by 30%. Improvement continued over the next few months until 10 months from the start of the treatment, the eczema had gone and both the leg and foot had became normal.
The Editor's comment:
This is another wonderful healing with Swami’s 108 Common Combos. There is one point to be noted - whenever you are treating a skin problem like eczema, skin allergies or psoriases, etc. it is advisable to give the appropriate combo externally in oil or a non-allergic powder like vibhuti or even rice flour if it is some sort of fungus or the eczema is wet, as well as internally at the start of the treatment. This will hasten the healing and give immediate relief to the patient.
