I am 55 years old and I am on HRT(Hormone replacement therapy) for the past 1 year but I am still getting hot flushes. Because of that, I cannot sleep at night which makes me feel very tired. I get frequent headaches which do not respond to panadols. Do you think homeopathic medicines will help me for my problems?I suffer from a complication were the top skin of my fingers peel off at base of the nail. At times it's painful & at time it's not. I've had this for the last 29 years & I have tried so many lotions & creams, prescribed & over the counter. Now I have lost hope. I recently discovered that my 2 year old son too suffers from the same problem.
I would be grateful if you can kindly help me & my son with a suitable remedy.
Common causes for chronic peeling of top skin of fingers are-
- Excessive dryness of the skin
- Recurrent fungal infections
- Nail biting
- Allergy-e.g. certain cosmetic products
As you have been suffering for a long time, I assume that this is without pain and other signs of inflammations like redness and itching. It is not necessary that the cause of peeling of the skin in your child is same as yours. I suggest you should try to keep your skin moist by drinking good amount of water (8 to 10 glasses) per day.
In homeopathy, various medicines can be used depending on the possible cause and symptoms. Some medicines used are- Causticum, Thuja, Silicea, Natrum sulf.
The results are fairly good, however, it may take a while to get better with homeopathic medicines. It is also necessary for you to rule out the possibility of fungal infection.
