Skin symptoms are one of the most commonly treated symptoms in homeopathy.

The term "dermatitis" can describe various diagnoses, including atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, allergic dermatitis, chronic dermatitis, chronic urticaria, housewife's eczema, and psoriasis.

In some cases, the severity of symptoms such as itching, swelling, sores, and cracks can cause people to experience sleep deprivation due to disrupted sleep.  This can lead to irritability, depression, and a loss of physical and emotional balance.

As a pharmacy worker, I often receive inquiries about dermatitis. However, since pharmacies cannot provide ongoing support to individual customers, we recommend they consult with a homeopath who can prescribe a personalised prescription for dermatitis.

In my profession, individuals often seek my advice regarding their skin-related conditions.

This time, we will talk about ``dermatitis'' and homeopathy.

#1 Every person has a different background and reason to see a homeopath.

When people come to a consultation, they would say,

"I have used steroid cream and got better, but the symptoms come back again."

"I have used medication for a long time, but I don’t want to use them anymore."

"I have used medication and the symptoms have subsided, but I wonder if I can use it forever."

"I am interested in discovering a natural method for healing my skin."

Many individuals have become aware of homeopathy, and they have expressed their interest in trying it out.

As mentioned above, even if a diagnosis is given, the physical appearance of dermatitis differs from person to person, and the prescribed remedies will vary greatly depending on the person's physical, emotional and mental balance. This means that even if two people have the same diagnosis, the prescription will be unique for each person.

#2 The skin is your “boundary”

The skin is the largest organ in the body.

The skin acts like a shield for the entire body, protecting important organs such as muscles and internal organs by sweating, regulating body temperature, and sensing through the sense of touch.

The skin is a highly sensitive organ that plays a crucial role in our sense of touch. Babies also feel love from their parents through physical contact, and the lack of it can cause feelings of loneliness and deprivation.

The skin is also an important tool for communication.

Touch is also where we remember trauma and past fears. Some people may not like or feel uncomfortable being touched.

The phrase “thick-skinned” is used to mean not showing one’s complexion, but it can also be used to mean shameless, brazen, insensitive, and inhuman.

Moreover, many emotional expressions refer to the skin.

  • Blushed  - to blush and feel ashamed

  • Break out in cold sweat - To be nervous, to feel nervous, to say that you don't feel at ease

  • Becoming pale - Refers to the colour of one's face in blood-curdling situations with fear

  • I get goosebumps - Goosebumps appear on the skin due to cold or fear

The skin is the boundary between the outside world and your body.

What is it that threatens your emotions, that invades your most important realm?

During a homeopathic consultation, we will explore the root of the causes and select remedies that match the characteristics.

#3 How long does it take?

If you have never tried homeopathy, you ma ask this question. However, the healing process is individual and it is important to work together with a homeopath. The period is depending on their condition.

Moreover, the recovery time of the dermatitis may be related to the individual conditions as follows.

  • How long have you suffered from?

  • How much have you used medications?

  • How old (related to the turnover of the skin: metabolism)

  • Lifestyle

  • Stress level /emotional health

If you have chronic dermatitis rather than a recent one, the treatment time can vary from 6 months to several years, even if you have sessions with a homeopath every 4-8 weeks.

Human skin undergoes a turnover cycle of approximately 28 days. Therefore, it takes time for new skin to emerge from underneath, for the regeneration of beautiful skin to be completely completed, and for the results to be visible.

#4 Faith and patience

For people with dermatitis, the key is to have the faith to continue using homeopathy and the patience to wait until the skin is completely reborn.

Also, lifestyle habits, thinking habits, and mood changes are greatly involved. The positive feelings and attitudes of the patient, such as ``changing the lifestyle'' and ``changing the way of thinking,'' are greatly influenced.

Depending on the situation, my job is to prescribe not only remedies for physical symptoms but also remedies that support the client's feelings.

Yes, dermatitis is one of the symptoms that greatly affects the teamwork between you and your homeopath. Therefore, a relationship of trust between the client and the homeopath is key.

Of course, this is true not only for dermatitis but also for other symptoms, but especially for dermatitis, many people have been suffering from it for many years, so it often takes a long time to see results. The key is whether or not you can continue.

#5 How can homeopathy help dermatitis?

During homeopathic consultation, we review the characteristics of your skin symptoms, emotional patterns, stress levels, and lifestyle habits, and prescribe remedies that suit your condition.

When it comes to lifestyle habits, I may suggest using temporary supplements or providing advice on eating habits, daily routines, emotions, etc.

In the case of chronic symptoms, we strongly recommend consulting with a homeopath and having them prescribe a remedy tailored to the individual.

Pharmacies often use the following remedies for temporary relief of itching.


The remedy is made from honey bee. Swelling occurs when you are stung by a bee, so it is a good idea to use it to treat symptoms such as itching, fever, and swelling of the skin. It can also be used when you experience swelling due to allergies.

Urtica Urens

Stinging Nettle Remedy. When the swelling is not as bad as Apis, but the itching is severe.

Arsenicum Album

It can be used when the skin becomes irritated or burning sensation due to itching.


Itching, redness, burning sensation and allergic types from the dermatitis.

Rhus Tox

urticaria, hives, red, swollen, intensely itching, blister-like vesicles that break open and crust over.


eczema with deep cracks of the skin with yellow or honey-like discharge.


deep cracks in skin folds, dirty, hard, rough skin. Thick green crusts, burning and itching, redness, bleeding. for someone who works with hands using chemicals (hairdressers etc.)

Calc Sulph Tissue Salts

This tissue salt cleanses the blood. This mineral is found in the liver and removes unnecessary substances from the body by cleaning the blood.

Please note

Sulphur is the most common remedy for eczema, such as dried, flaky, red, swollen, burning itching skin.  However, we do not prescribe it in the pharmacy, because it causes a healing crisis in most cases after taking this remedy, and people do not know how to deal with it. It is better to be prescribed by your homeopath with a full consultation.

#6 Conclusions …

The key to dealing with dermatitis is to continue without giving up.

"People who are currently using homeopathy"

"People who are thinking of using homeopathy from now on"

"People who tried homeopathy but are about to give up"

It is a good idea to receive and continue the treatment based on the above points.

I hope this blog can deliver hope and courage to as many people as possible who suffer from dermatitis.

The secret is:

Skin is the largest organ in the body. Be careful about absorption and excretion through the skin. It's a good idea to use products that are gentle on the skin and do not contain chemicals in what you put in your body, what you use for skincare, and what you use for cleaning, and wear clothes made from natural materials such as cotton.

By sweating and doing moderate exercise, you should try to remove unnecessary substances from your body through your skin. You can also soak in the bathtub and use Epsom Salt to help eliminate toxins through the skin.
