Homeopathy is a branch of Medical Science discovered by Dr Samuel Hahnemann based on the theory of like cures like. Simply put it means a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people would cure similar symptoms in sick people (Common Skin Rashes).
The typical difference in homeopathy is that along with patient’s physical symptoms, his mental & emotional symptoms are considered too. Homeopathic medicines being proven in human beings act effectively on emotional and mental symptoms which is a distinguishing factor in treatment.
Besides the dose being in minute quantities and in the form of energy, it does not leave any abnormal reaction or side effects during or after the treatment. Homeopathy does not work on ‘One size fits all’ approach. Every patient is examined differently basis his mental state, case history, habits and symptoms.
The doctor’s perception too is very crucial while dealing with the patients and has to be very careful while taking the case history. Homeopathic treatment is very effective in different ailments and has given outstanding results in curing chronic diseases.
Skincare and cure is one of the practices where homeopathy leaves no scars behind. A thoughtful homeopathic treatment can surely cure skin infections, rashes, psoriasis, irritations, etc. While vaccinations can avoid common skin diseases like chickenpox and measles there are few other important tips which can help prevent many infectious skin diseases.
