Emu aid has worked well on the toe nails but I’ll think the toenails are healed and then it comes back. The two big toes toenails and 2 small toes toenails are fighting it again. My symptoms are 1) Toenail issues are yellowish toenails, 2) Red, hot burning feet, 3) Itchy / prickling, 4) Feet have to have no socks or shoes on or all gets worse…can’t wear socks or the HEAT and BURNING sensations becomes unbearable in both feet. 5) Raynaud’s Syndrome where both feet are red but also blue/black color.

    Dear Dr. Sharma garu,
    Regularly I wearing Shoes with sox. And taking cold water bath.
    I’m suffering from the following things from my both the Feet –
    – Fungus between side 2 toes of my both Feet and between 2 side fingers of the both the Hands since
    several years (20 years). When ever used Anti- Bacterial Ointment, tempararly the probem will be
    solvled and again after some time (4 or 5 monts) it willbe started.
    – Burning sensation skin colour changing to Black colour of the both the Feet since 2 years. Black
    colouring spread up to the bellow of the both of the knees slowly.
    – And Dryness of the skin from both theFeetoints up to the both legs and the Hands. Slowly it is
    spreading to entire body.
    6 monts back I aproached one Skin Doctor in Hyderabad. She told that its belongs to Eczima and she gave some tablets for 10 days and one bottle (for 1 mont) of Dr.Reddy’s ANUSIA Body Lotion. I used
    that medicine upto the finishing the Lotion. Then I felt little bit better. After that I negleted to go the
    Skin Doctor again. After 5 months I realized that all the above said problems increased very much.
    Now again i bought the ANUSIA Lotion since 10 days. Temparely i feel better. When ever I stopped that
    Body Lotion, the Burning sensation and the Skin Dry-ness is increasing rapidly.
    Could you please prescribe any Homeopathy Medicine for me for parimanent cure ?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Dr. Sharma,

    Dear Sir,

    I have been suffering from a kind of blisters in the sole area that itch too much. The blister contains a kind of fluid, which is slippery. In the beginning, about 15 years before, the blisters used to be small. But now they are as big as bean seeds. After being broken it covers a big area like a ringworm, which itches very much.

    I consulted different doctors and they prescribed me medicines. I felt comfortable when I used medicine but appeared again after the dose was over. One of the ointments I was advised to use was Keralin. It used to control itching and heal the wound when applied after breaking the blisters.

    Lastly, I consulted a doctor who said it was a Tinea. He carried out a KOH test, which I think was positive. He prescribed me Sebifin tablets and some other ointments. He advised me to use medicine for three months, which I completed. It was OK for me. I again asked the Doctor If I can use this medicine more. He said OK and advised me to take medicine for 15 days more. Then I stopped.

    After few months, it reappeared. I got frustrated. I used to wander with my itching feet hither and thither. Once I met a friend who noticed something wrong in my sole. He watched it carefully and said he had the same problem before. Then he advised me an ointment named Candid-B (Clotrimazole + Beclomethasone) cream and bought a tube for me.

    I have been applying it in the sole area since then (about 2 years before). Blisters disappear and no itching is there so long as I continue applying. Blisters start appearing if I stop.

    Please advise me what should I do?
