chronic genital herpes

hello, I have had chronic genital herpes outbreaks for 30 years and it seems to be getting worse. I am 51 years old and female. I am thin with dark hair and 5'2'.
The outbreaks always start the same way. I feel as though I have to pee but not much comes out. I also have tingling burning sensations in my right ankle and lower leg but mostly my ankle. Also tingling on the backs of my thighs and sometimes my right arm.
The herpes outbreak starts on my pubic area and around my anus, very rarely on my vaginal area but sometimes. It starts as a raised area that itches intensely and then pregresses to a weeping sore. The discharge is thin. The outbreaks are large, not small and usually confined to one area at a time. But then that outbreak will clear up and it will start again somewhere else. It seems as though I get them twice a month now. I feel weepy and it makes me feel very depressed and discouraged.
I am very sensitive to the cold, especially drafty rooms. Must dress warmly except in very hot weather. Always thirsty with a burning thirst for hot sweet drinks made with honey, especially tea. I hate drinking water. Have a craving for dark chocolate, cheese, and honey and eggs. I go though lots of honey, never sugar because sugar tastes salty.
Have tried various remedies over the years with none helping for more than a few weeks. Nitric acid, sepia, arsenicum album. Most recently I have taken petroleum and my mood is much better. I am happier and more outgoing and sociable and feel less offended by things but the outbreaks have not stopped. I took 2 doses of 200c six weeks apart and then 1 dose of 1M two weeks ago. Please help. What am I doing wrong? Is petroleum the correct remedy. I had a strange symptom where I would drive my car and always get confused and forget where I was supposed to be going at the same intersection every time. Also I feel as if my mental acuity is better on the petroleum. Hope this all makes sense. Thanks

rishimba, I wrote a very long reply to your questions but it did not appear as a post which is annoying. I will have to try again later. But thank you for taking the time to try and help me.

Once again thank you for replying to my post. I will try to answer as best I can.
1. My main problem is my herpes outbreaks. They occur monthly sometimes twice in one month. I have tingling in my right leg and ankle and sometimes the backs of my thighs and down my right arm. Then the next day I have an outbreak that lasts three to four days.
2. I suffer from chronic constipation and fatigue.
3. Chronic depression which is treated with welbutrin. Have suffered from depression since I was young. I get bored at work and can't sit still or concentrate.
4. The outbreaks itch terribly, accompanied by depression and tiredness where I have to sleep.
5. I had a bad accident when I was 7yrs old. Lost my eyesight in right eye and after that was depressed all the time. Most of my problems started from that time except my herpes which started when I was 22yrs old.
6. There is no time of day that is worse than another.
7. Any kind of physical stimulation can bring on an outbreak. Better from washing.
8. Outbreaks occur before and during my period.
9. Hate cold expecially draughty rooms. Also can't tolerate hot weather. Feel better when it is warm. Wear warm clothes even when it is warm out sometimes.
10. I worry all the time about everything. That is my major mental state. But it changes and have felt all of those other things but mostly worried that something bad is going to happen. Worry about being poor. Thunderstorms make me feel better. Rain feels good, soothing. I like consolation but only from people I know very well. Very sensitive to noise, makes me very nervous. Hate strong smells like perfume. Do not mind food smells. Bad habit of picking my nose. My family annoys me sometimes but I am afraid of being left alone.

please take three doses of SEPIA 200C six hours apart in empty stomach on a single day.

observe changes in the next 3 to 4 days and if you have a feeling of well being and you worries reduce, you can continue SEPIA 200C one dose every 2 to 3 days till the herpes affection is not fully cured.

this will cure you of all major ailments including the menstual pains and constipation.
 
rishimba last decade
I have taken sepia in the past but maybe I need to take it more often. I will try this method and see if it is effective. Thanks

Sorry to intrude, I am not a homeopath but am studying to be one, most of the things you wrote seem to be the same as me, and I was prescribed Calc carb 2M, once a day 7 drops in 30ml water, succussed and a sip taken and leftover discarded. I'm not sure if this would work for you so you may want to see a homeopath but I was told that Sepia and Calc Carb can sometimes be confused.
 
JadeBrown last decade
I ready your case, and I also think that rishimba's recommendation of Sepia is correct. There isn't any reason to think of Calc. based on this description.

However, if she's already used 200c, and 1M, my own treatment would be to start with LM1. I've got another case on ABC where a patient who used SEP 200c with some results has noticed more improvement with LM1.

Did you ever try the Sepia?
 
Homeopathy International 1 last decade
yes, I did try the Sepia and it has helped but I have needed to repeat the doses more times than you suggested.
