Answer by sOuL dOcToR
Skin affections ares merely local manifestations of some constitutional affection. They represent the effort of nature to get rid of some poison in the system, congenital or acquired, which effort should not be suppressed but abetted. The indications for our remedies will not only aid in this by correction of the soil, but also avoid the dangers of suppression by external applications.

Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Eczema, Allergic Dermatitis, Uriticaria, Skin Allergy, Psoriasis, Herpes etc.
#Graphites. [Graph]
our great remedy for all sorts of skin diseases, no doubt often mis-prescribed, and hence frequently disappoints. The symptoms calling for it are very clear; there are moist scabby eruptions on the scalp, face, bends of joints, between fingers and behind the ears. The corners of the mouth and eyes are cracked, bleeding and oozing a gluey, honey-like, thick, tenacious discharge, a fissured eczema is the type. Great itching always accompanies the eruption. The skin may be dry and horny. The hair is dry and falls out. Lycopodium. Dry scaly eruptions. Calcarea carbonica. Eczema on scalp which extends to face. Crusts are white, and on awakening, in the morning especially, the child will scratch furiously.

#Arsenicum. [Ars]
A useful remedy in all cases of skin troubles when the skin is thickened, such as in chronic eczema, psoriasis and chronic urticaria. The sensations are itching, burning and swelling, it also has papules, nettle rash and pimples. Burning sensitive ulcers with offensive discharges. It is almost a specific for hives from shell fish, which itch and burn, and for repercussed hives. Pustules form into scabs. Pellagra may find its simillimum in Arsenicum. Bovista. Baker’s and grocer’s itch, and eruption on the back of the hands. It is also recommended in pellagra, also phosphorus and Argentum nitricum. Sepia. Dry desquamation. Ringworm. Rhus. Vesicles on an erysipelatous base. Clematis. Rawness, worse washing, moist eruption.

#Sulphur. [Sulph]
The great characteristic of this remedy is the aggravation from washing; this, with scratching, makes the parts burn intensely. The skin is rough, coarse and measly, and there is much soreness in the folds of the skin and a tendency to pustular eruptions. Dryness and heat of scalp, with intense itching, especially at night, and scratching causes soreness; wetting makes it burn. Eczema erythematosum. Eruption of yellow crusts. Eruption at the margin of the hair. Dearborn says Sulphur 6 will cure more pruritus than any other drug. It is our great antiseptic. Selenium. Itching in folds of skin and about ankle joints. Hair falls out with eczematous eruptions. Antimonium crudum. Thick callosities on the skin. Deficient growth of nails. Honey colored crusts on heads of children; cracking in the nostrils and corners of mouth. Antimonium tartaricum. Variola. Impetigo of scrotum. Thuja. Warts and eczema following vaccination. Also an excellent remedy in the higher potencies for acne facialis. Natrum muriaticum. Dry scaly or herpetic eruption of little water blisters in bends of joints, hydroa labialis, fever blisters. Moist eczema without much itching. The Natrum muriaticum patient continually suffers from “hang nails.” (Hepar, Rhus, Natrum muriaticum, Arsenicum, cold sores.) Herpes circinatus. Eczema, with thick scabs oozing pus. Urticaria, with itching about the joints when occurring, with intermittent fever worse at seashore. Kreosote. Eruptions on the extensor surfaces of joints. Berberis aquifolia. Scaly pustular eruptions on the face. It is one of the most reliable remedies in the cure of psoriasis. Hydrocotyle. Great dryness and desquamation of the epidermis. Acne rosacea. Its special field is in psoriasis and Dearborn praises it in leprosy. The writer cured a case of inveterate psoriasis universale with this remedy. Dr. H.V. Halbert, of Chicago, considered Thyroidine in the 3X or 30X potency as worthy a trial in psoriasis. He reports excellent results from its use. Indications are a dry and impoverished skin, cold hands and feet. Psoriasis is a pregrowth symptom of cancer. The condition of the skin should always be noted, being the great organ of elimination of poisons. Borax was considered by Dr. McClatchey as curative of many cases of psoriasis, and indeed it corresponds to many symptoms of this disease. Petroleum. Pictures pure eczema with its thick scabs, oozing pus and rhagades; the skin is harsh and dry, the finger tips crack and the hands chap. It is especially suitable to eczema behind the ears. Use the 12X potency.

#Mezereum. [Mez]
Baehr considers this remedy the best one in crust lactea. There is great itching, which is worse when the patient is warm or wrapped up. There are small vesicles with terrible itching, and the great characteristic is that the secretion dries quickly, producing scabs from beneath which an acrid thick pus oozes. Crusts and itching are the features. Herpes zoster, with neuralgic pains along the nerves. Nux juglans. Tinea favosa on scalp, behind ears, itching worse at night, preventing sleep.

#Rhus toxicodendron. [Rhus-t]
Vesicular eruption characterizes Rhus, so it becomes a remedy in herpes, eczema, pemphigus and prurigo. It is useful in right-sided zoster with extensive vesication and perhaps accompanied with rheumatic pains. The skin is covered with numerous vesicles, there is great itching and tingling, the skin is often swollen and oedematous and these vesicles have a red areola around them. the symptoms are all worse at night, in damp weather and in winter. Rapid vesication and angry-looking skin are characteristics. Apis. More burning and stinging and more oedema. Cantharis. Large blisters with smarting and burning. Croton tiglium. Small blisters with much itching. Hughes says that Croton relieves the itching of eczema rapidly and permanently. Anacardium. Small blisters with an umbilicated center. The eruption itches excessively and burns. The remedy has been used successfully in Rhus poisoning. Dolichos. Itching without eruption. the writer has a number of times verified this symptom. It will sometimes control diabetic itching, and it is especially useful in senile pruritus. Worse at night. Worse across the shoulders. Fagopyrum. Itching worse by scratching. With here and there red blotches which are sore. The hairy portions of the body itch more.

#Psorinum. [Psor]
Herpetic eruptions with much itching, worse when getting warm in bed; the skin is dirty, greasy, unwashed in appearance. Tinea capitis, offensive matter oozes out. Sebaceous glands secrete in excess. Eczema more on the sides of the head and face, cheeks and ears. Eruption in the bends of joints. Pustules or boils remaining after itch. A most important remedy in all skin affections and we should not forget Tuberculinum and Syphilinum, for each has its special field and symptoms. Clarke advises the nosodes, especially in leprosy.

#Oleander. [Olnd]
Skin eruptions with gastro-energetic troubles; the skin is very sensitive, slight friction causes chafing and soreness, especially about the neck, scrotum and thighs. Crusta lactea on scalp and back of ears. There is great itching; scartching relieves at first but the parts become very sore. It will be all the more strongly indicated if gastro-enteric symptoms be present. Vinca minor. Eczema of scalp and face, matted hair and offensive odor. A crust is formed, the discharge is retained underneath and causes the hair to fall out or to mat together, forming the plica polonica. Viloa tricolor. Hughes lauds this remedy and rarely uses any other in crusta lactea and impetigo in children. It has crusts with a copious exudation and it is accompanied with offensive urine. Staphisagria. Eruptions worse on the occiput, eczematous eruption on the ears, yellow scabs. Scratching changes the place of the itching. Eruptions forming figwarts or condylomata; especially useful in sickly children after the abuse of mercury.

#Ranunculus bulbosus. [Ran-b]
Vesicular eruptions along the course of the nerve; vesicles filled with serum and burn greatly; large blisters form on a raw surface. Herpes zoster. Pemphigus in the new born. Thickening of the skin into yellow hard horny scabs. Ranunculus sceleratus. Vesicular eruption, with thin, acrid discharge, large blisters.

#Nitric acid. [Nit-ac]

#Pulsatilla .[Puls]
An indicated remedy in hives when of gastric or uterine origin, or with diarrhoea and chilliness; hives after eating pork, fruit or buckwheat cakes. Scanty menses.

Itching hives over whole body, worse from warmth of bed; chronic cases. Radium. Itching all over body, burning of skin as if a fire.

A Feast For Crows

I am a horrible horticulturist. Dogs I got. Cats I can do. Plants? Fuggitaboutit.

Nonetheless, hope springs eternal, and every year an unfortunate crop of plants are sent to their doom as they peer out in horror from the back of my car on their way to purgatory from the relative safety of the nursery.

This year, I decided I would bring the kids into the fold and have them start a few seedlings. Maybe they have better juju than I, I reasoned. Perhaps they inherited their father’s talent for keeping plants alive instead of my less impressive genetic spread.

And they threw themselves into it the way only kids can, with gusto and passion. They planted the seeds as directed. They watered them religiously.

And then this morning, just as the first couple of eager sprouts were optimistically poking their tiny little sprout heads out of the soil, disaster.

Brody found the crime scene first.



I’m so sorry ma’am, the killer was in and out before there was anything we could do. What’s that? No, there were no survivors.


You may want to avert your eyes. It’s pretty bad out on the grass. Yes, they got the squash seedlings too. The whole crew, just like that.



Ma’am, I can say with certainty this was not the work of rabbits or coyotes. These were lifted right off the window ledge by a crow. I tried to tell you this morning when you were making coffee, remember?

Please accept my condolences. Oh, wait, you’re that vet, right? What were you doing with plants in the first place? Haven’t you learned by now? *sigh*

How to Write a Blog vs How to Write a Book

After writing a blog for half a decade now, you’d think that the transition from blog to book would be effortless; and if not that, at least somewhat intuitive. You’d be wrong. It’s kind of like saying, hey, I walk my dog every day, I’m totally up for a triathlon.

Some of you have asked how it’s going or what it’s like. It’s not easy, but really, what good things in life are? I’m enjoying the process immensely. I’m Ralph Macchio currently getting edited by my very own Pat Morita. We are on our way! The first draft of (who knows how many versions of) All Dogs Go to Kevin is complete, and I’ve learned a lot along the way.

How to write a blog:

1. Get a WordPress account.

2. Write something.

3. Edit (optional)

4. Publish.


5. Repeat for 5 years or so.

How to write a book (Option 1):

1. Adopt a funny looking animal.

2. Join reddit.


How to write a book (Option 2):

1. Write a blog (optional but strongly recommended)

2. Write some stuff. Show it to an agent.

3. Trash what you wrote in Step 2. Repeat step 2 and 3, eight times.

4. Take a break and wallow in despair at your crummy writing skills.

5. Write some better stuff. Now you have a proposal. Agent shows it to a publisher.

6. Don’t forget to blog about steps 1-5

7. Publisher gives you a contract longer than your actual proposal, plus a deadline for an actual book consisting of a whole lot more words than you’ve ever strung together in your life.

8. Write some stuff. Show it to no one.

9. Write some more stuff. Panic a little. Read, a lot.

10. Attempt to edit, get paralyzed with inability to see beyond current sentence. Decide entire thing is a steaming pile of garbage but now it’s too late to turn back and all you have is a deadline and some roadkill.

11. Hand manuscript to editor with the same apologetic smile you use when you give a dirty diaper to the flight attendant.

12. Wait, breathlessly. Blog a little. Wallow some more in the certitude you are no Maya Angelou, no Stephen King, no Harper Lee.

13. Pick up 50 Shades of Grey and Snooki’s latest book, then feel better about Number 12. Maybe it’s doable after all.


14. Open up envelope with your first draft manuscript, neatly evaluated by an editor kind enough to use a pencil and not a big red crayon for the comments. You’re the before scene in an 80′s teen flick. All you need is some tough love and a montage to get into shape!

15. ??? That’s as far as I made it as of today. I’ve got one year to fill in the rest and then we can all pretend it was an effortless endeavor.


Check back in a month for coffee rings, notes written in my own blood and perhaps some tooth marks from a neglected dog.

All that being said, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t deliriously happy. I love every moment of the process.

Mama Love

Mama Love

Sunday will be my very first Mother’s Day as a mama.  (Well, to a human anyway; I absolutely considered myself a mother to Bubby dog too.)  My mom and I are very close, and this has always been a special day because of that.  But there’s something even more magical about it now that I have Essley.  I don’t look at Mother’s Day as a holiday focused on buying gifts or materialistic spoiling (although I certainly wouldn’t complain if I was brought breakfast in bed, hint hint) as much as I view it as a day to celebrate the indescribably beautiful relationship between mothers and their children.  The bond that I have with Essley – and with my mom as well – is something that is unique to that type of relationship.  And I think that is worth celebration. 

Recently, I started a Motherhood board on Pinterest.  I’d come across so many really lovely images that document the mama/child bond, and I wanted a place to save them all.  In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all.  Whether you are a mother (fur babies count too!), a child, or both, I hope that your Mother’s Day is full of the kind of love that these photographs exude.

Nice Tick photos

Check out these Tick images:

Tick Convention

Image by jkirkhart35
I had never seen so many ticks on one piece of grass as this. I used a 2.8 105mm macro with a blue background. I used the wand in LR3 to make the single tick stand out a little more. They do not jump, but they sure to wait until you brush up against the grass, and then they hitch a ride if they can.

Obesity, Arthritis, Sore Joints, and Medical Problems

Just the other morning I  saw that sugar was in the news, listed as a toxin. The report followed that there was legislation proposed to regulate the amount of sugar in foods. With all the other regulations and laws we have to worry about, why do we have to pick on sugar

This is so sad and yet so helpful that you've laid it out there in black and white. I just hope Oaklander's take note and really push their city council hard. You've been there at the last minute for some fantastic dogs, it hurts the soul to think of all the ones that no one was there to save. :-(
