Success with homeopathy for DH or any type of rash?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had success with homeopathy? 

-if you have had success with homeopathy for DH or any type of burning itching skin rash, was the treatment acute (for immediate relief consisting of multiple doses) or constitutional (usually only one dose for up to a year or more), and what remedy was used? How long did symptoms flare up before going away/what was the time frame? Can you eat gluten again?

- I already went through the search engine and nothing of use came up because they didn't give any detail about remedy used, duration, or long term results.

-If you don't believe in homeopathy or don't know what it is, with all due respect, please don't reply in this thread. I'm DESPERATELY looking for answers and don't wish to debate the validity of vibrational healing or medicine, of which there are many kinds that work whether one believes in them or not. Anyone that has a deep understanding of vibrational laws, quantum physics and the behavior of water, (all subjects that are not commonly studied by the average medical doctor or scientist) know this to be true. Please don't try to use homeopathy without consulting a professional and then claim it doesn't work. Many foods, substances and electrical fields render it useless and treatment requires diligent compliance from the patient to be effective. Like many natural therapies, it often causes symptoms to get much worse for an extended period of time before getting better. Western doctors are not very adept at recognizing detoxing symptoms or a healing crisis.

If you actually have DH, you have to stop eating gluten to stop the antibodies. Then it can take a while for it to clear up.  So I can understand trying to find something that helps it go away or at least feel better until

it does.   But, for people with DH/ Celiac, you shouldn’t start eating gluten after the DH finally clears up or it will just come back.

What Karen said is true.  Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) is celiac disease.  The only known treatment for celiac disease or DH is a gluten free diet.  Our DH forum members have stated that a very strict diet is required.  They often do not eat out and avoid processed foods, even gluten free foods.  This seems to be a good strategy until the rash is under control.   It can also take a very long time to heal on a gluten free diet as antibodies have to work their way out of the skin.  Be patient.  

Consider browsing through the DH section for member tips on how to survive this awful rash.  Not sure if homeopathy has been used to provide any relief from symptoms.  Again, DH is celiac disease and avoiding gluten is the only treatment.  There is Dapsone, a prescription drug that can help, but there can be serious side effects.

Homeopathy is a placebo, and doesn't do anything. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a quack making a buck off of it. It is quite literally "active ingredients" (I use liberally - none of the active ingredients have any plausible mechanism of action) diluted to such an extent that there is not one single molecule of the active substance remaining in whatever pill you take: https://www.mcgill.ca/oss/article/homeopathy/homeopathy-delusion-through-dilution

It is unfortunate that pseudoscience practitioners prey upon people with chronic illnesses, for whom there is often not a good evidence-based medical treatment, or for which the treatment is difficult (ie. strict GFD). Don't waste your life waiting for a magic carpet because the bus is late. Until a proven cure or treatment becomes available, a serious GFD is all you can do.
