The types, causes and symptoms of eczema are different for every patient. An ideal eczema treatment should take into account these unique aspects to be truly effective. At Dr Batra’s™, our expert homeopathic doctors prescribe a suitable homeopathic medicine for eczema, keeping in mind the medical and family history of the patients as well as their unique symptoms and causes. This process helps in the accurate diagnosis of the condition as well as in deciding the most effective eczema medicine for eczema treatment.
Additionally, Dr Batra’s™ has introduced India’s first 3D imaging device for the analysis and evaluation of the skin condition. The powerful diagnostic machine, based on an advanced optical technology developed by scientists in Dublin, allows the skin to be viewed in 2 and 3 dimensions. It enables multi-spectral analysis of the epidermis (outermost layer of skin) and dermis (layer beneath the epidermis). This technology can prove to be extremely helpful in the treatment of various skin conditions, including eczema treatment.
A quick scan by the 3D imaging device can reveal the following:
- Thickness of the skin
- Extent of eczema in the subcutaneous skin (not visible to naked eye)
- Response to the eczema treatment even before it is seen by the naked eye, thereby saving your money and time
As a part of ascertaining an effective homeopathic treatment for eczema, the doctor may prescribe certain allergy tests to determine the allergens or irritants that may be responsible for causing eczema in a particular case. The doctor may also conduct a patch test to pin-point which allergens are capable of inducing eczematous reactions, especially in cases of contact dermatitis. The results of these tests will aid in ascertaining the best medicine for eczema in homeopathy.

A clinical study conducted in April 2003 in Obitsu Sankei Hospital, Japan, included a group of patients diagnosed with intractable atopic dermatitis, a form of eczema that does not respond to any medication. These patients were treated with homeopathic medicines for eczema for an average period of two years. The study showed that 88% patients noticed a reduction in itching; 77% patients reported improvement in sleep due to overall improvement in intractable atopic dermatitis; and 75% patients showed an increase in overall satisfaction. Also, about 63.5% patients had an increased sense of work fulfilment, whereas 71.5% patients had shown improved satisfaction in human relations.
The doctors were amazed by the results of this study, because the patients had not responded to any other form of treatment previously. Homeopathic treatment for eczema provided effective results in approximately 75 to 80% of the patients involved. This research was an eye-opener to the doctors at the institute and for the entire world on the efficacy of homeopathy for eczema.
In addition, the study clearly demonstrated an improvement in the primary complaint of atopic dermatitis as well as the overall well-being. Patients also experienced greater satisfaction from eczema treatment in homeopathy, which implied that homeopathy treatment for eczema is largely holistic in nature.
Homeopathy for eczema also helps to avoid side-effects (as seen with steroids) such as thinning of the skin, atrophy of the skin and secondary, fungal and bacterial infections of the skin.
One must keep in mind that the eczema treatment duration may vary from patient to patient, depending on several factors, namely; the duration of eczema, its extent and severity and the history of treatment. However, homeopathy treatment for eczema has multiple benefits to offer to every patient and hence, it is strongly suggested for all cases.
Why Dr Batra's™?
At Dr Batra's™, we have successfully provided eczema treatments to thousands of patients over the last 35 years. Our homeopathic treatment for eczema helps patients as it corrects the deviated immune response, which is the root cause of eczema or skin allergy, as compared to other conventional eczema medicines. Homeopathic medicine for eczema works to restore the faulty immune response to give rise to a series of repeated and increasingly prolonged remissions in the symptoms, which eventually proceeds to a good control over the disease.
Conventional eczema treatment includes the use of topical immune suppressants, calcineurin inhibitors, photo therapy or oral immune-suppressants. However, such eczema medicines might cause side-effects like chemical dermatitis, thinning and/or discolouration of the skin, burns, increased risk of cancer and liver toxicity.
