I got some last night for my dd eczema in the diaper area. Her bum looked pretty bad. Well in 2 hours it was completely normal. I reapplied before bed and this morning she was still pretty clear just a little pink. What has been your experience using this? I am new to homeopathy. Do rememdies work really well the first time and not so well following times, or was it just because she went all night without reapplying? Also does anyone else know what the other ingredients are beside 10% tincture of Cardiospermum? It doesn't list the other ingredients. Lastly what does HPUS, class N mean? Thanks I am so new to this and feel a bit confused:

Do you still have the box? The box lists all the ingredients, I believe. I'll look around here and see if I still have the box kicking around somewhere to post the ingredients...

And yes, we have used Florasone for DS eczema, and it works amazingly well. We only need to use it like once or twice before the rash gets bad, and it clears right up! Our homeopath reccomended we use it, and I read great things about it on this board somewhere. I feel like we found the miracle treatment!

We've found homeopathy to work great for our family. We do use a homeopathic doc to help us out, because I think theres so much information to know, and it really overwhelms me. So, I do a bit of my own research, but mainly rely on my homeopath to guide us. We consult him for everything--from the common cold, to ear infections, allergies, ...you name it!

A good book to check out is The Complete Homeopathy Handbook by Miranda Castro. Very helpful and informative guide...

I'm glad it worked so well for your kids. I tried it a few times on my own winter excema and it was useless. It didn't have any effect at all. Maybe it just wasn't the right remedy combo for me or it doesn't work as well on adults?

Leafy- I had the same results. I guess it takes sunshine for mine to improve.

That's funny, I'm beginning to think that sunshine makes my dd's worse!

I think it has more to do with humidity (for some types of excema) than the actual sunshine. In the midwest, the sunny summer is usually associated with higher humidity. It's the opposite on the West Coast.
