Dear Dr Tillman,


Xuan Xuan received his second dosage of Sulphur 30c on 5 Jun 2011. It is about a week after her one day of one dosage.

Her diarrhea has more or less settled but stools still soft. She is back to her usual diet of chicken and vegetable with brown rice added.

This week she is hardly scratching anymore as compared to last few weeks. But she is chewing her legs and her tail more. Especially her tail area, there are some red pimply dots around the area. Hair doesn't seems to grow back at all at that area.

Other than that she is fine with high energy level, stay nice smelling for the entire week, hair at her side growing back.

I've ordered Sulphur 200c online from UK to standby. As and when we want to change to it, it is available.

My Online Vet Response for Red dots under dog's armpit area with black scaly looking skin without hair (Part 3)
by: Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

Hi Wei Ling,
Thank you for the photos of Xuan Xuan, and progress report. Her progress is going well. I know you are concerned that she is still red, and itchy about her hindquarters and tail end area. That is to be expected, as homeopathic principles dictate that healing will occur from front to back, from top to bottom, and from the inside to the outside. But the itchy should start to subside over the next 2 weeks.

Considering that she has been on immunosuppressive drugs for over half of her life, it is truly amazing that she has progressed this far so quickly!! You may bathe her to keep her comfortable, and keep a T-shirt on her, if needed. But at this time, we wait. No more Sulphur at this time. Send me an update in 2 weeks, (that would be 3 weeks after her second Sulphur 30c dose.) Sooner if her stool is worse.

Take care,
Dr. Carol Jean Tillman

3 Weeks after 2nd dosage of Sulphur
by: Wei Ling

Dear Dr Tillman,

Xuan Xuan's condition has been relatively stable for the past 3 weeks. I've increased her food intake and she is slowly gaining a liitle weight.

However, she is still scratching her legs and biting the base of her tail. She is especially scratching the back side of her front legs with her hind legs. Before the dried hard skin there can fully recover, she scratches it and the dried skin drop revealing pinkish skin.

The rest of the body is recover well. Other than the legs and the base of the tail, lots of undergrowth fine hair is growing very well.

I've ordered sulfur 200c. You can decide later which to use.

June 24, 2011, 3 weeks after 2nd Dose of Sulphur 30c
Hi Wei Ling,
Good report. And it shows she is gradually getting better.
You wrote,
Xuan Xuan's condition has been relatively stable for the past 3 weeks. But since she is only stable, what you have reported indicates no ongoing improvement. Therefore, I would advise to repeat one dose of the Sulphur 30c.

Send me an update in 3 more weeks. At that time, we can decide if she is showing remarkable improvement, then we will wait longer. If she is not showing any more improvement, then she will probably need to have the 200c Sulphur. But send me a progress report to evaluate how she is doing.

3 Weeks after 3rd dosage of Sulphur
by: Wei Ling

Dear Dr Tillman,

Xuan Xuan has not shown much improvement over the past 3 weeks after another dosage of Sulphur. In fact, she has been scratching her side and armpit more but biting the base of her tail less. I would say its very serious though compared to few months ago. Her condition has been relatively stable but I couldnt remove her t-shirt as yet as she will have red lines and bald hair patches within a few hours if she is not wearing t-shirt.

Please advise what to do next.

Hi Wei Ling,
Thank you for the update. It sounds like it is now time to give Xuan Xuan a higher potency of the Sulphur.

If you are able to order 100c potency, that would be good. (If that is not available, then see if 200c is available.)

For either potency, give her one dose one time, the same way you have been giving her the 30c.

Then send me an update to let me know the date you have given it.

First dosage of sulphur 200c
by: Wei Ling

Hi Dr Tillman,

I gave Xuan Xuan one dosage of sulphur 200c yesterday, 9july. I didn't try to get 100c cos it is not available in Singapore. Most homeopathic medicine need to be bought online and the shipment is quite costly and long. I've already bought 200c sometime back so I didn't try to buy 100c again. Will monitor and update you. Thank you so so much.

1week after 1st dosage of Sulplur 200c
by: Wei Ling

Hi Dr Tillman,

Xuan Xuan has been very itchy this past week especially this 2 days. She has been scratching her armpit since last weekend. She turns smelly one day after bathing. Yesterday after I came back from work, she has scratched her front legs till there are dark pink swollen patches of bare skin. I immediately gave her a bathe and realized her entire bottom is filled with little red dots, something that I have not seen for more than a month.

I do not know whether it is due to the medicine of boiron sulphur 200ck or something else. I tried to clean my house and change her bedding, wash her toys. It seems she is scratching all over her underside, not any specific part. I am letting her wear tshirts n socks so she doesn't get injure while scratching. Her life-force is still very strong and doesn't seems affected even the day after medicine.

What can be the issue?

Hi Wei ling,
ONE WEEK post 200C Sulphur
MORE itching and outbreak of red dots:
You wrote,
"I do not know whether it is due to the medicine of boiron sulphur 200ck"

Yes, it is due to an aggravation from the higher potency of the Sulphur. It should start to subside in the next 3-4 days. Iuf you need to bathe her more frequently to give her some relief, that would be ok. It would not cause any interference with the remedy.

It is not unusual to have new eruptions, and a 'flare-up' in symptoms when increasing to a higher potency. Keep me posted, I do not want to make her suffer, but I do not want to interfere with her healing.

Two weeks after Sulphur 200C
by: Wei Ling

Hi Dr Tillman,

Xuan xuan's outbreak of red dots has subsided. She is still scratching but not as badly as last week. She seems to only scratch the area under her armpit. Energy level still high and happily playing. I'll continue to monitor

TWO WEEKS after Sulphur 200c.
Hi Wei Ling,
This sounds like a good response. Xuan Xuan should continue to improve over the next several weeks. If her improvement begins to slow, or she has a relapse, then it will be time to re-dose her.

Five weeks after First dose of sulphur 200c
by: Wei Ling

Hi Dr Tillman,

Xuan Xuan's condition has been improving for the first few weeks but has stop improving for the past week. She is scratching her armpit quite constantly and her eyes once in a while. Though not very badly, but more itchy than before the first dosage of sulphur 200c. Before that she only scratches after she wakes up from a nap.

Since the last one week, there is no visible improvement. Will I be able to give her another dosage of 200c now?

She is also finishing her first bottle of Antronex and Milk thistle. Should I continue with both of them? If so I will need to import from US asap as it will take some time.

Is there any other homeopathic medicine and supplement that I am likely to use in the near future that I can also import to standby? Because the cost of each shipment to Singapore is much more than the cost of the medicine itself.

Five weeks after First dose of sulphur 200c

Yes, it sounds like it is time to repeat a dose of the Sulphur 200c. So, give her a second dose now.

She will need to continue on both Antronex and Milk Thistle. You could order more Sulphur in the 1M potency. Just to be prepared for the future.

Another supplement that might be good to help with her immune system is Immuplex. It is from the same company that makes the Antronex. Xuan Xuan would need 1/2 capsule in her food two times daily.

2 weeks after second dosage of sulphur 200c
by: Wei Ling

Dear Dr Tilman,

2sept 2011

Xuan Xuan has been scratching quite a bit these few days. Not to the extend of wounding herself though. But as long as she is not lying down or sleeping, she is scratching under her armpit very often. Should I give her one more dosage

Her new batch of medicine is arriving in a few days time and I'll start on immunplex on top of the current medicine.

Hi Wei Ling,
September 2, 2011
Two weeks after second dose of Sulphur 200c.
It is too soon to repeat the dose of Sulphur 200c. In spite of her scratching, is there any new hair growth in the armpit areas? Is her skin less scaly and less discolored black? How is the rest of her skin?

If you massage some coconut oil into her armpit area, does that give her any relief?

You mentioned that she will soon start on the Immuplex and is continuing with the other supplements, (Antronex and milk thistle), so that should help her too.

Send me another update in a week, to let me know how she is doing.
