Itchy skin with brown discolouration in 31yr old female
Constant itchy skin with brown discolouration on stomach, side of trunk, thighs, and calves which then spread to upper chest, shoulders and upper arms.
Started 6 months after daughter had to be home from nursery due to March 2020 lockdown. She was trying to cope with working from home, caring for her young daughter and husband working from home too.
Previously tried 2 medium steroid creams, 1 anti-fungal cream and oral anti-histamines for the skin issues.

31yrs Daughter at home from nursery due to March 2020 lockdown. Stressful as toddler at home, and husband working from home.
31yrs Skin condition started.
Main remedy: Sepia
After 1st prescription:
Itch mix really helps. Skin now less red and inflamed. Rash is now under the skin but the areas are much drier. Bowels much better. Stooling daily type 4 now (previously type 3 on alternate days). Period cramp mix really helped. Had some emotional revelations. She now realizes that she was strong for pumping breastmilk for 1yr, having an emergency C-section and surviving her non-supportive family members. She can now look back with clarity without crying or feeling low.
After 2nd prescription:
Itching has gone! Scarring where rash used to be. Darker brownish discolouration there under the skin. Unsightly dry skin. Sleeping better. Bowels still good. Feels hope has been restored. She now has hope that she can recover from this skin condition.
Itchy red inflamed skin rash for 6 months. Now the rash is under the surface of the skin, not itching and bowels better too. Working on discolouration of skin, but client stopped appointments.
