Hi doctor,

I am a 30-year-old male. Recently, I have been diagnosed with urticaria (burning, itching sensations throughout the body from head to toe). It started out in an acute way but is turning out to be chronic. It has been more than two and a half months and I am still suffering from it. FYI, my blood test is very clean and good. PFA. In the past two months, I have been using Bepozic tablets twice or thrice a day on a dermatologist's advice, but all I observed is that the medicine is just soothing me a bit from having any itches but is not fighting the root cause of it. For that reason, I keep getting this burning itching sensation again and again if I stop taking the medicines and on the other hand, I do not want to run myself on medication for months and years. I researched a bit online and surprisingly, found out that allopathy has no perfect cure for it but homeopathy does. That is the reason I wanted to try homeopathy treatment this time. Here are my following questions:

I read that homeopathy treatment takes a while to cure. So, can I use these Bepozic (antihistamine) tablets twice a day, so that I do not have to worry about itching? Is it safe to use homeopathy medicines with other generic medicines like Paracetamol, Cetirizine, Benadryl, etc.? I just want to be sure if I can take them along with homeopathy medicines, just in case I encounter any of those in the near future. How long does this treatment take to cure, from your past experiences or consultations?



Welcome to

I have seen your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity), your thyroid profile is normal, and serum triglycerides level is a little bit high. For urticaria, in homeopathy, we have the best remedies. So, you need not worry about your problem. Your blood reports are not related to your problem. While using homeopathy, you need not use antihistamine medicines. Homeopathy can solve your problem. Homeopathy is the best and has no side effects. And along with allopathic medicines you can use homeopathic medicines. Due to urticaria, the eruptions like hives occur. The range of size is from a few millimeters to several inches in diameter. It is caused by an allergic reaction. You may have acute urticaria.

Before getting this problem, have you used any medicines for other problems? Some foods also cause urticaria. Some bacteria like streptococcus and Helicobacter pylori also cause urticaria. Symptoms of urticaria are intense itching, burning, and a sense of heat. According to your symptoms, the homeopathic drug ARS ALB 200 (Arsenicum album, Organic sucrose) is the best remedy. I suggest 10 pills once for three days only.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I have a habit of eating junk food but the medicines I used a couple of months are the regular ones only like Paracetamol for fever, Benadryl for cough, Naproxen for headache, Levocetirizine for cold, etc. Anyway, according to my understanding, I need to take 10 pills at once in a day (for three consecutive days). So, a total of 30 pills. Please let me know when would be a good time to have them like morning or evening and before or after lunch? Can I eat immediately after having the medicines or should I wait for sometime after having 10 pills? I am really surprised to hear that the problem that I am having and had spent a lot of bucks on till now, can be cured in three days. Please let me know if I understand it correctly.

According to homeopathic theory, a single and simple medicine is enough for the cure. Now, what I have prescribed for you is the initial medicine and there will be a need for a follow-up medicine.

Hello Dr. Sudhakar,

I used the medicine for 3 days as per your advise but unfortunately it didn't do any good to me. Just FYI, I took the medicine in the mornings after breakfast with an hour gap before & after. Also, I had to take 1 or 2 bepozic tablets per day, to avoid itching !! FYI, itching is more on the head part comparing to other parts. It occurs mostly on scalp, ears, face etc and sometimes on the remaining parts!

I opted for homeopathy treatment as the last resort but my hopes are dying day by day. I am not sure how many days I had to suffer like this.FYI, I don't smoke and I don't drink! I work from home mostly but I walk 2 kms daily. Even I controlled my habit of eating junk food a lot in the past couple of months. Please let me know if you could provide a better solution that will solve my problem once and for all.

Thank you..
# Hello, Sunil Good afternoon, no need to worry about your problem, it will clear slowly, I have antidotes your previous medicines. Now on wards you can see the improvement, please do not feel anxiety about your problem.
Hello Dr.

As I said before, the medicine seems to be working. I took the Apis 200 for 5 days initially and stopped it, as per our suggestion. I am currently taking the Urtica urens medicine at nights. I used to take other antihistamine medicines once a day for the last 2 weeks but in the last two days - I haven't taken any because I didn't have any major itching. Even if I had, it was very much bearable! In-fact, this is the first time - after 3 months, I haven't scratched my body rigorously :) !! This itself is kind of victory for me !!

One thing I observed is if I scratched somewhere randomly, its turning bit red in color but it has no itching. Might be common but just felt like saying it to you..

Now please let me know how I should proceed on my medication ? Let me know if I had to take that antihistamine medicines too and for how long ?

Note: Please don't mind for the delay in my replies. Its just that I had to pay Rs 200/- per post and I had to consolidate everything into a single post each time. I also request you to provide me all details and queries too in a single post itself!

Thanks you.
# Good evening. According to your sayings, problem seems to be reducing. So. Now. You need not use antihistamine. But, when ever you feel more itching, you can use one tablet randomly if you feel it is unbearable. Now, the follow up of homeopathic medicine is Urtica Uren as usually daily. And now, NATRUM MUR 1M.Dosage is 10 pills once in 10 days. For about two months. Please do report me after 2 months .
Hello Dr. Sudhakar,

Unfortunately, the itching started again yesterday night & I had to take one antihistamine tablet yesterday and one more today evening. I was very happy for 3 days but the issue re-bounded again. Not sure what was the cause for this! I had shrimp, eggs & chicken in the past three days. Not sure if any of those is triggering it but I think homeo medicine should make me immune to those kind of things at-least for couple of months. That is my understanding on the functionality of homeo and is the reason I am trying homeo too.

Anyway, the urtica urens dosage will be done in the next 2 days and I already took one dosage of Natrum mur 1M. Please guide me how can I proceed further. Do you think I have to use a more powerful medicine in homeo because the issue is getting rebounded ??

Thanks for your support...
# Hello, good evening.
Don't worry, the new medicine is powerful one, this will give cure to you.
Those prescribed medicines use for one moth accordingly.thank you.
