Is eczema curable in unani?

hello doctor,



my son is 12 years old and is being effected by secondary exima from time to time. it started when he was 9 years old and traced back to pollen allergy from the wild grass around his school. he has shifted his school since then. allopatheic medication has not stopped recurrance of this allergy though not as extensive as it was when started. allopatheic doctors say it usually takes a few more years to subside. am mailing to check how good unani medication can support a cure for this.

Yes ayurvedic and unani medicines are very effective in skin ailments. There is a group of herbs which are regarded as blood purifiers which include neem chirayata, giloya, shahtra, etc which are very effective in skin ailments there different combinations are available for different conditions whether it is weeping or dry eczema.

Dear sir/Madam, I am Muhammad Jawad, 26 years (male). I face problem in my chest (Chest congestion). I have visited several doctors. Some recommended Levofloxacin 500 mg full dose some prescribed Moxifloxacin but in vain. One doctor recommended Monteleukast sodium 10 mg once daily. I feel better when I take this drug but feel chest congestion again when give up this drug. Normally my congestion starts when I am in rest position. My congestion is severe in places with high number of pollen. Kindly let me know what my problem is. Is it pollen allergy or something else? And one more thing, I often suffer from chest infection as well. I am smoker but I have reduced smoking. I don’t smoke more than 3 cigarettes per day. Kindly let me know my disease and how to cope with this problem. Thanks very much.
