Eczema: Homeopathy treats it as well as – if not better than – conventional medicine

Homeopathy is just as good as conventional medicine for treating eczema.  Classical homeopathy – where the patient receives just one, individual, nosode, or pill – even improved symptoms better than did the conventional therapy for up to a year afterwards.

The two therapies were tested on a group of 118 children with eczema, of which 54 had homeopathy and the rest conventional treatment.  The condition, and the progress of the disease, was monitored by doctors.

After a year, both groups reported similar levels of improvement, although doctors noted that the symptoms were better in those given homeopathy.
