My first blog post – and it’s personal!
I do generally have quite dry fingertips but keep them in check with regular use of a good hand cream. So what went wrong?
The really cold weather last week, hauling logs for the fire, a couple of afternoons batch cooking for the freezer (and therefore batch washing-up) and sorting through some admin papers (paper dries fingertips by soaking up the essential oils in the skin) all seem to have got the better of me.
I immediately declared that my husband would have to do any further washing up (!!) and tried various hand creams, including a cracked heel cream which often help, but no change.
Time to call in the big guns. As a Homeopath, I have used homeopathy as my primary medical system for me and for family acute illnesses for over 14 years.
See below the amazing result that I had using homeopathy to treat this painful condition.
1st March 2018 - Ouch, my fingers are red, they feel tight, they are cracked and bleeding.
ABOVE: 3rd March 2018 - You can see that my fingers are less red, and the deep cracks are healing.
BELOW: 6th March 2018 - my fingers are so much better and well on the way to healing properly within a week. What a relief!
There are a number of homeopathic remedies that can be used for treating dry skin acutely:
My choice: I used Petroleum 30c night and morning for 3 days and was very relieved to see the redness and swelling disappearing quickly then the cracks healing and now my fingertips are no longer painful. I will continue to take the remedy but at longer intervals until my fingertips are fully healed or another remedy becomes apparent.
If you have skin problems and haven't thought of using homeopathy, this shows what can be achieved in a very short time.
