Homeopathic Treatment of Dandruff


Homeopathy has an insightful and deep understanding towards the treatment of dandruff. One thing is sure, which every patient of dandruff should know, that dandruff may be a skin disease but it is not skin deep. Dandruff has deep roots and must be treated accordingly. Homeopathic treatment prevents relapses and removes the tendency towards dandruff.

Homeopathy strongly believes in understanding the totalistic causative factors while handling skin diseases, whereby the study of skin, mind, genetic influences and immunological matters put together determines the line of treatment.

Homeopathy is strictly against the use of local creams or lotions to treat deep seated skin diseases like dandruff because local applications provide only temporary relief. Most importantly the disease is pushed inwards and may attack other vital organs like heart, lungs, liver and so on.

Homeoapathy drugs are tested on healthy human beings before being applied to patients, hence they are very safe. Homeopathic treatment has a very scientific approach to skin diseases as a whole including dandruff.

Generally, Shampooing frequently to wash away flakes before they build up is the first step in treating dandruff. But it is difficult to shampoo enough to keep up with this extra shedding and most importantly shampooing may not stop the irritation or itching.

Steroid creams and lotions used in allopathy are merely short-term solutions adn their prolonged use will cause thinning of th skin. When used for a longer period this can lead to skin cancer, melanoma and so on. The above are the temporary solutions with furious and dangerous side effects.

Some of the homeopathic drugs which may be used in a case of dandruff under an expert homeopathy physician are Arsenicum album, Sepia, Sulphur, Calcarea carbonicum, Graphites, Mezereum and so on.

Results are usually observed within 2 to 5 weeks of treatment whereby dandruff reduces considerably and eventually the problem of dandruff is eliminated permanently with persistent treatment for about a year.
