Question Rhus Tox

I was just wandering if anyone can help me with advice of how to anti dote Rhus Tox and if you have any ideas of what acctualy hapened here.
Was it non constitutional/wrong remedy?
My HP prescribed Rhus Tox 200 10 drops per week for skin problem (rush between fingers) and it seems that caused more problems which I didn't have previously like
arthritic pain in wrists(more right one)
stomach pain
and more rush on skin with red pimples filled with liquid which would inflame and look like chicken pox.
After all I couldn't use my hands they were so swolen (open wounds)that I had to use steroid cream to stop inflamation of skin.
Cream helped but now after few days I have very sore throat and nose (more left side possible Strep.inf.).
Is it possible that someone can have Sul. for constitutional remedy if one is cold person and don't think rugs are nice but everything else match up to the smalest detail?
Anyone with similar experience?

If you took more than one dose of the Rhus Tox -that is what probably caused the problem.

The symptoms that came out- had you had any of them before in your life?

Sulphur can be given to someone who is cold but has flushes of heat.

There are many antidoting remedies but a cup of strong coffee may do it. Sulphur is also an antidote for some of the symptoms of Rhus Tox. Do contact your homeopath as soon as possible to discuss what has happened.

Hi Ricky,
I did not have any of above symptoms.
Skin on my fingers was bad always .I had cracked skin on fingertips and rash between middle and pointing finger but never this.
It looked realy like chicken pox and it wasn't only on my palm but all over my hands.At the moment dry skin is peeling off and leaves little hole at the place where pimple was and than leaves red mark size 2-3mm which doesn't change colour when I press the skin.
I have to tell you that I was drinking cofe when I was taking Rhus Tox still?!
( I would have about 4-5 cups a day)
I notice that I feel very tired (more than unusual)too.
How can someone have symptoms of Rhus.Tox if it wasn't ever exposed to poison ivy or oak?if one lived where those plants not exists (maybe it's silly question but I would like someone to explain ).

Thanx

You do not need be exposed to poison ivy to need Rhus Tox. Rhust Tox can be a good remedy to help arthritis type pains, but if the whole symptom picture fits Rhus Tox, then you would need Rhus Tox. Rhus Tox is a constitutional remedy and can be used as such and does have a mental/emotional picture too. It has the theme of stiffness running through it.

If you are very clear that you have not had any of these symptoms before except for the peeling skin between the fingers and you have been taking a 200c with this regularity, then it is my guess that you have proved the remedy. Basically, if you have proved a remedy, all you need to do is stop taking it and the symptoms should slowly start to subside and become gradually less. Obviously you need to talk to your homeopath if this was prescribed. Perhaps this remedy was not prescribed on the totality of your symptoms?

Also, I very much doubt that coffee would antidote a remedy, unless a patient was very sensitive indeed. As in your case, you have said that you have been drinking coffee all along anyway and it has not antidoted.

I suggest that you should speak to your homeopath as soon as possible, but it does sound as if you may have proved the remedy.

You may find that your symptoms are relieved if your homeopath gives you 1 dose of Rhus Tox 6 to bring the potency down but undoubtable the problem has been caused by taking too much of the remedy. You should have been given just 1 dose and waited to gauge the reaction before repeating it.

This may be due to excess dose of Rhus. If Your aggravated state is improving, you can wait. If it is persisiting or aggravating, we have to antidote it by newer totality. The remedies like Anacard, Grind, Coffea,RB,Guiacum etc are capable of antidoting Rhus. But the best method is select another remedy for the present totality, if the condition is worsening. If it is towards amelioration, you can wait. As you are very sensitive, 50 millisimal in single dose is the best choice. As everybody advised, please consult your hompath.

Cool

Just to let you know my HP prescribed me Nux vom. 30c once a week.
Pimples on hands and red rush between fingers are gone due to cortisone cream.
All other symptoms were gone before I started Nux vom.
It looks like it was enough just to stop taking remedy (Rhus Tox).
I'm not sure for the skin problems (used cortisone) but all new symptoms from Rhus Tox are gone.
I hope that this new remedy (Nux vom) will help, however at this moment I can not see/feel any change.
What makes me interested is through how many remedies we can go before I or my HP have lucky guess?

There are two things of concern in your post Tanja:

1) If you're using cortisone - you are only suppressing the skin problem. If you're lucky, a homeopathically indicated remedy will bring it back out onto the skin and help resolve the problem (cure it!) instead of suppressing it. Suppression only leads to further problems. And, it interferes with homeopathic treatment.

Did you tell your homeopath that you used the coritisone? If not - you need too.

2) Nux vomica once a week? This is a bit odd. Usually it's one dose and wait. Having said that, none of us know the full details of your case. Why it was prescribed and why it was prescribed once a week...

I know that suppressing skin problems can make it worst.
I just couldn't bear pain, it was like having chicken pox pustule and it was stinging pain.
I was afraid that skin will infect/inflame and bring maybe something that I can not stop even with cortisone.
Yes I've told my homeopath that I used cortisone and she just wanted to know in which form (cream).
Last time when she prescribed Rhus Tox 200 it was once a week and now again with nux vomica once a week.
It could be that she try find constitutional Remedy which I've doubt it is after reading about Nux vom.
I have sinus polyp and sore throat offten and now started vertigo when going to sleep .
My opinion is that after many years of throat/sinus inflamations (left side only, tonsils removed) middle ear is starting to play around.
I am a cold person <from wind,cold air everything else is like described in Sul.
I've mentioned this to my HP she still prescribed Nux vom. I suppose she knows better, but shouldn't we know ourselves better than stranger?!
Does anyone knows anything about using shape of your face to match the remedy,that's what she tried to do.
I've never heard of it(sounds like last century).

Thanx
