A recent study in Germany compared conventional treatment to homeopathic treatment for eczema. The study included 118 children with eczema over one year. A primary care trial was conducted, meaning half the children were treated conventionally, the other half using individualized homeopathic primary care treatment.
Using symptom scores to assess change after one year, the physician scores for eczema signs and symptoms were significantly improved in the homeopathically treated group. Overall, homeopathic treatment was found to be as effective in improving symptoms and quality of life, as conventional treatment for eczema.
