Skin Problems


We see so many children with skin conditions at the Homeopathy Centre. Mostly they come to us as a result of referrals from happy customers. With Homeopathy we view skin problems holistically where all aspects of the child (physical and emotional) are considered when choosing the treatment.


The name eczema or dermatitis is broadly applied to a large range of chronic skin conditions. These can show as simple dryness and recurring itchy rashes, redness and swelling, to cracking, oozing or bleeding skin. The cause is often unknown or an inherited predisposition and it can start at any age. Allergies to dairy or wheat products may contribute to the severity of the problem.

Contact Dermatitis

This is an allergic reaction of the skin to an allergen, often a chemical substance or a metal. This sensitivity can be an isolated occurrence or turn into a chronic condition.


Impetigo, also known as school sores, is a highly contagious skin infection caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. It is most common in children at preschools and primary schools.


Warts are very common and are caused by a viral infection. There are 10 different forms of warts and they are mostly harmless. Warts can be contagious and they typically occur on fingers, hands or feet. They can disappear after some months or years without treatment, the acurate Homeopathic remedy can stimulate the immune system to resolve them.


Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection of the skin or the mucous membranes. The virus spreads easily from skin to skin or from objects that have had contact with the virus, such as towels.
