Medical History

A 6-year-old boy Oscar had been vomiting a few weeks ago.  His mother consulted me, the boy had developed circular red eruptions on his torso and leg.

I suspected tick bites.  He would become unsettled at night, and his appetite was low.  He had suffered from eczema in the past, and it had reappeared again.


In addition to eruptions on the skin, he would experience night terrors.  He would wake around midnight, shaking and confused, leap out of his bed and start running.  He had been scared of the dark, but it was exaggerated. He was usually gentle and loving but had become angrier recently, lashing out at his older brother.  It felt like he would explode with anger.  


He had also developed a fascination with death. He had a new baby The key recent event in Oscar’s life has been the arrival of a new baby sister.  His behavior has changed since she was born, and the sleep disturbance and physical symptoms have all appeared since this time. It was the first time in Oscar’s life that he had been parted from his mother, and he feels that his sister ‘gets all the attention’ at home.

Case Management

Homeopathy Treatment of Eczema in Child

I prescribed the remedy Hyoscyamus 1M.  After the medication, he has recovered and is made a prompt recovery, and is ‘cheerful, and back to his old self, according to his Mom’. He doesn’t have any skin rash and eczema. 

He was more relaxed and affectionate as he used to be ‘scared of everything’.  He has improved with his night terrors and he is sleeping well.


Hyoscyamus is one of the remedies prescribed for difficulties following the birth of a sibling, and it will also help with night terrors and fearfulness in children, where the picture matches.  Because the remedy matched the whole picture well, the skin symptoms also resolved quickly.
