Face Warts - Dulcama, Causticum, or Thuja? 25 year old femaleHi everyone!
I’ve been browsing this forum and website for a while (the Remedy Finder tool is seriously awesome!), but since I read that I should make my decision based on more information, I’ve decided to post to ask for help.
I'm a 25 year old female. The symptom I’ve been working so hard to make vanish is face warts… I started having them four years ago (in winter). The first one showed up on my right cheek and is still one of the most noticeable warts on my face. Then they spread to my forehead and left cheek; the right side is still worse. I was told by different doctors that it’s because my immune system is not strong, some told me to exercise more & drink more water (oh those generic stuff), and as for now, I’m drinking more than 8 cups water per day, and have completed a half-marathon but my immune system is still low. I discovered a month ago that my Vitamin D level is 8 (standard range is 25-80), and am currently on Vitamin D medication.
Some observations regarding my warts and my overall health:
1. They look the least pronounced at night and quite noticeable in the morning.
2. I feel cold all the time. My feet and hands are cold even when it’s summer.
3. I feel thirsty all the time even though my diet is not salty. I almost have to constantly drink water.
4. I’m outgoing, emotional (cry a lot – I’m not really sad, it’s just I am very easily touched), reactive if not intentionally trying not to.
5. I generally sleep really well, but I haven’t been lately due to things in my life that bring me stress and started to have dreams where I’m doing those things that I think about during the day.
6. Fear is one of my biggest enemy. I tend to worry a lot. Like if my husband doesn’t respond my text in a while, I’d be worried if something happened to him.
7. My in-laws are very big on homeopathy. My first exposure to homeopathy was one Thanksgiving when I was at my in-laws’ and had a fever and was feeling nauseous, which was fixed by homeopathy.
8. I started retin-a a month ago, a couple of them faded away, but it seems to stop working. I started Boiron Thuja Occidenalis 200ck two days ago and haven’t seen any difference. Actually they’ve been worse after I started treating them. I’m not sure which one caused it and if this is normal.
Per Remedy Finder tool, the remedies that suit me the most are Dulcama and Causticum, and Thuja comes the last.
My question is: Should I keep taking Thuja? If so, when should I stop and move to the next remedy if there’s no getting better? If I should take another remedy, which one I should go with? Again, when should I stop and switch is there’s no getting better?
I really appreciate your time and help. I wanted to find a local homeopathy practitioner but I couldn’t find any in Michigan… For anyone that is going to comment on my post, thank you in advance!

Send the picture of the warts
How they look like
♥ mnaari last yearIf you took thuja 200 one dose will act for at least 2 weeks. Often if remedy is correct symptoms will worsen and then get better. You have to wait for at least two weeks to see direction of the remedy. Google herings law of cure to get an idea of what homeopaths look for after a remedy.
Overdosing will cause the problem to get worse and bring on problems you never had.
♥ simone717 last yearMnaari: I've attached a picture to this post
Simone717: Thank you for the advice! If Thuja doesn't work and I stop at two weeks, would it be considered overdosing?
hopeandjoy last yearDay 1 thuja 200c
Day 4 calc carb 200c
Day 7 thuja 200c
Same way keep on alternating the remedies after every 3 days
Report after two weeks
♥ mnaari last yearNot overdosing at all. Trying one remedy at a time and waiting to see effects and then evaluating is the proper way to do homeopathy.
Everyone is different in how they react, depending on sensitivity and whether the remedy is producing
A reaction. In your case it is already reacting by making it slightly worse,
So depending what is going on after two weeks evaluation, the remedy may still be active and working, so you would NOT take more but let it continue.
thuja is a very deep acting remedy along with some others so you have to be careful here. And remember that the remedy is a match to what is going on. Homeopathy works bc the body will not accept 2 things of the same. "Like cures like."
Your body reacts to the match and tries to clear the remedy by raising life force to do it. It then clears the remedy and targets the real similar disease. The life force will also push out all the things used to suppress
The warts in the past. Just let it unfold and come back in two weeks and evaluate. There is no way to
Predict things ahead.
♥ simone717 last yearMnaari-
Why would you tell someone to take MORE thuja when they are already aggravating from the dose they just took?
Obviously they will aggravate even more??
The first rule of healing is do no harm.
♥ simone717 last yearThank you both for your replies! I really appreciate it! I’m planning to take thuja for two full weeks and then re-evaluate. It’s been about a week and I haven’t noticed any big change. Finger crossed!
hopeandjoy last yearDo you mean wait for two weeks?
Or take more? If you take more when not needed, you risk having more warts appear from overdose. Your next post will then be how do I stop this.
♥ simone717 last yearHi Simone:
Sorry for not being clear. I started the Thuja last Tuesday so I will be taking it till next Tuesday, if it's not any better I will stop by then. Is this okay?
Thank you for the kind reminder.
hopeandjoy last yearNo.
You take ONE dose of 200 and then wait for two weeks to see the effect.
A 200 c can work for 2 weeks and more..just one dose.
The other prescription you saw was copied from somewhere ? without good understanding of remedies or effects.
♥ simone717 last yearOh my God! This might be the reason why my son got more pimple-like eruptions on his body. His homeopath told us to give Rhus Tox 200C daily! I then noticed that he has more eruptions.
Then he advised him to take Thuja 30C 2x/day for the sclerosis in his eye. The growth in the eye is clearing and redness is very minimal now..Now I am thinking when he need to stop the Thuja. He has already taken 10 doses.
But I've seen in the book of Banerjis of India (from which the homeopath trained) and using 200C daily...
Jane77 last yearHi Jane,
You have the banerji protocols book?
Their primary focus for 3 generations has been cancr/brain tumors.
They are using homeopathic remedies in a different way than normal homeopathic individualizations of a persons symptoms. They specifically work on finding protocols and have a huge database.
However, in the doses of rhus tox
And aggravations , that sounds
Like overdoing it.
