Hello,

Let me first say that I am new to homeopathy and any help advice would be greatly appreciated. Here's the 'problem': My husband is hypersensitive to poison ivy and gets it many times each year. At least one of those times turns into a serious condition requiring prednisone to cure. Well... he has it again. It started 2 days ago and I gave him some Rhus Tox on the recommendation of a friend but I am really confused about dosages. Instinct told me stronger was better but the more I read the more I am unsure of that theory when it comes to homeopathy.

For 1 complete day, yesterday, he took 3 pillules of 200C twice and then 2 pillules of 200C once. Today, so far he has taken 2 pillules of 200C twice. His reactions has been that the poison ivy has not spread but it has gotten much redder and is weeping profusely. Also, his fingers are swollen to be about 50% larger than normal size.

Am I doing something wrong? Have I waited long enough for the Rhus tox to take affect? When he is done with this bout is there something I can do to help him build up his immunity to poison ivy?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
