Vitiligo is an inherited problem usually goes in line with families with problems like Diabetes, Thyroid, Rheumatoid , Lupus, Myasthenia Any of these ring a bell ?????

Yes. My mother has diabetes.But, nobody in my family or my husband's family had vitiligo ever. Is there any solution in homeopathy for this?

There are 2 main remdies for Vitiligo in most of the reps - sepia and Thuja but in my Murphy's rep I think there are 18 . This is all off the top of my head as I am away from home at the moment. But the correct remedy for your child will have to be established on her as an individual rather than a symptom. She needs to see a professional classical homeopath who will take a full case and prescribe on this.

If the patches is not marked whitness ,you can think of Pitiriasis simplex .Look for any minute scales there.

In both cases homoeopathy is effective.

Question

Arsenic sulf flavum has been prescribed for the treatment of my daughter's white spot on her face. I read some atricles regarding arsenic poisoning in these cases after long term use. I am therefore scared to use this medicine. Can anyone help me out with more information about this treatment ?

Thanks

How has this remedy been prescribed. It certainly should be "for a long time". I have looked up the remedy prescribed and it doesn't have any marked skin symptoms but must have been prescribed on her as an individual which is an excellent way to prescribe.

Remedies are so dilute that there is none of the material arsenicum in it so there is nothing to be afraid of there.

Ricky: Did you actually mean "it certainly should NOT be for a long time?"
