Recently, I was in my local health food store. I was talking to one of the sales people who I have known for a long time. A woman came up to the sales person and said, I am the woman who called earlier about a product for my daughter to help remove skin tags. We all three were standing in the aisle where the homeopathic remedies were located, and that particular product was right in front of us. After the woman left, I looked at the product. It was a box, on which was written “Thuja Occidentalis Homeopathic”. I believe it was an ointment or a liquid that was used topically. (The plant Thuja Occidentalis is made into a homeopathic remedy. The wasn’t the homeopathic remedy of Thuja Occidentalis.)
This interaction inspired me to write about skin eruptions. I have written a little bit about this topic before in two earlier posts. One post talked about eczema, and the other post was in reference to Direction of Cure. I have given the links here.
I know that many people, of all ages, suffer with different kinds of skin eruptions. A skin eruption can be eczema, psoriasis, impetigo, acne, rosacea, cysts, boils, warts, skin tags, pustules, hives, or other rashes. They are experienced as being:
- a nerve type pain, such as in shingles
- a burning pain
- an itchiness
- a soreness
- a redness
- an inflammation
- an oozing and discharging of pus or blood
- become scabbed
- a dryness
- a roughness
- a scaliness and flakiness
- an embarrassment
- a discomfort
- wanting to hide it and cover it up
- affecting one’s functioning ability at work and in social situations
Not Just On The Skin
Please note that I have listed physical sensations AND emotional responses AND how it affects one. I say this because skin eruptions are not just on the skin. They are a reflection of something deeper in the body, that is manifesting on the skin. To just care for the skin eruption by doing something topically on the skin, such as this treatment that the woman was going to use for her daughter, is not necessarily healing, and is not addressing where the skin eruption is coming from.
A skin eruption is a response or a reaction of something deeper in the body or system of the person. These can be from:
- an allergic reaction to foods, chemicals, toxins, fabrics, medicines or others substances in the person’s environment.
- a systemic imbalance.
- a hormonal change or part of a cycle. It get even be a response to birth control medication – when starting, during or stopping the medication.
- a reaction to stress, anxiety, grief, fear, or other emotions. I know of a woman who developed hives soon after her husband passed away.
- a part of the healing that accompanies a fever, such as in the measles and chicken pox. The rash in these childhood diseases are important and part of the healing process. You want the rash to be present.
Homeopathy To Heal
Homeopathy is very healing for people who suffer with skin eruptions. Homeopathy heals at the root of where the symptoms are coming from, in this case, where the skin eruptions are coming from. Each person experiences what bothers them differently. With the understanding of the person’s suffering, a homeopathic remedy that is similar to this is given. This homeopathic remedy stimulates the person’s own healing process. The person feels better in themselves, and the symptoms that brought them in for homeopathic care are better. In this case, the skin eruptions are better.
To Continue My Story
After the mother had left, I said to the sales person, I would want to know what bothers the daughter. Perhaps the skin tags bother the mother more than they do the daughter. And in fact, they don’t bother the daughter at all. If the skin tags do bother the daughter, I would want to know how she experiences them. It is always finding out about the person, what bothers them, and how they experience it. It is not just treating someone with a one size fits all product.
