I have a question. I am male, age 73yrs. I am getting itching all over my body in winters. Now it is severe; it was moderate some years back. I have started using Calendula/Graphitis/Thuja ointments and bio chemic no 20. Allopathy/dermatologist treatment was of no use. I am a lymphoma patient in remission for over 6 yrs and underwent chemotherapy. Help me.
I know how irritating itchiness can be. I tend to be a bit itchy myself, especially my back in the evenings. This is a very common symptom, particularly for post-menopausal women, because our skin becomes much drier. Your lymphoma treatment may have exacerbated this problem for you.
First, know that I am not a practitioner and do not provide treatment advice on this site.
My recommendation is that you see a good classical homeopath for this problem. While over-the-counter homeopathic creams can often do wonders and are a good self-treatment option for many patients, especially because they do not usually antidote remedies being taken for other problems (in fact, I use such creams myself on occasion), it seems to me that your problems are more systemic and deeper in nature — especially because of your past treatment for lymphoma. That is why treatment under the guidance of a homeopath might be more successful. I do have some referrals lists on my site.
As readers of Impossible Cure know, I am also not a big fan of over-the-counter mixed remedies, such as biochemics. They do not provide very good homeopathic treatment.
Another option for you might be supplementation with oils — for example, fish oil or coconut oil. I have incorporated both into my daily health regimen because they have many other health benefits as well! Topical coconut oil might also be helpful. You can find a lot online about the use of such oils for itchiness. A good naturopath might also be helpful in providing advice about such supplements.
I hope this is helpful!
