TO akshaymohl: I have same symptoms for 40+ years but also have lack of self confidence and have social anxieties. I have a young niece who has realized the same symptoms in her ownself (without her knowing about mine beforehand) so it might be a genetically linked issue? Thank You

qwe786 last decade
Are the sweats sour smelling or do they smell bad .

Does your head sweat too especially while sleeping .

U have written that

' i always want fan to be dircted at my palms and feet.'

Do u feel any sort of
burning in palms and feet .

u have also mentioned that

'increases if any meeting or presentation is there at work place or if i meet someone new or exams etc'

Do u feel anxious in such situtaions .

How would u describe yourself .
vikas_grower last decade
pl continue as it is slow medicine to act j k mohla
akshaymohl last decade
No.. They donot smell or anything.. No my head doesnt ache anytime unless i have been out in sun for long or few obvious circumstances..
I used to have burning sensation in my palms and feet earlier.. hasnt been so for 2 3 years now. It was so that i was not able to touch hot chapattis etc.

and yes i do feel anxious when i am in front of lot of people and specially if i know they are watching me.

Description: I am introvert kind of person. But once i am comfortable with anyone i dont care who all are there.. Basically, i want some one i know to be with me wherever i am. Then i have no anxious feelings. and this i have developed recently.. Earlier i never used to be so conscious.
qwe786 last decade
No smell. No unnecessary headache.
I mentioned fan coz i feel cooler when it blows direct on the affected areas. Coz then i dont sweat. and that is of couse relief. No burning sensation.
Earlier i used to feel burning. It was so much that i cud not touch hot chapatties(roti,paratha). Not so for 2 3 years.

yes i feel very anxious or conscious when i think that people are watching me.

Description: Introvert. But once i make frends with some one, i dont have such felings. But recently, i have seen myself always wanting some one to be with me wherever i am. If that is the case, i dont bother if unknown people are there or not.
And one way i have found out of it is. i am alwayz chaterring on phone. I dont know, maybe because of this sweating etc. i have started to lose my confidence very badly now. and so when i am on phone i can pretend that no one is looking at me.

Please get Calc Carb 30 , pellets or liquid form .

Do not take it on your own , report once u have it and then dosing method can be discussed .
vikas_grower last decade
Ya i got it. Tell me when and how do i take it.
qwe786 last decade
Which brand is it .Please inform .

However the dosing method is as follows .

Calc Carb is a deep acting remedy , it is to be taken once and its action lasts 30 to 40 days . Hence i repeat it is to be taken once . If this is the medicine then some effect will be noticed in first few days .

In case this does not turn out to be the right remedy no change will be observed but we have to wait at least for a week before we come to a conclusion .

You will have to strictly avoid coffee , perfumes /body sprays at least for initial 10 days after taking the medicine . Even if it is difficult this has to be followed .No flexibilty around this for at least the first ten days otherwise the action of the medicine will get masked .

Dissolve 2 pellets ( or pour 2 drops of liquid )of Lyco 30c in a 250 ml spring water bottle. Allow the pellets to dissolve on their own which takes some time . You can shake it gently after they have dissolved.

(Before putting the pellets or drops of Calc carb. in the bottle of spring water , please discard from this bottle as much water so that only around 120-150 ml water remains . Then put the pellets or the drops of the medicine )

Take a capful from this bottle 3 times in one day, spaced by 45 minutes .

This is to be done for one day ONLY. No repetition of the medicine .

(After u have taken the dose do not throw the bottle , add around 50 ml of brandy or pure alcohol to it and preserve it because in case if u receive benefit this can be used for dose repitition at a later date )


1/. Nothing should enter the mouth for 40 minutes prior to, or after taking the remedy.
2/. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water .
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate.
4/. Avoid wearing perfume/aftershave, or exposure to anything with a strong smell while under treatment. This includes any and all essential oils, and incense.
5/. Avoid the consumption of excessively spicey foods
6/. The use of medicinal herbs, either as 'teas' or supplements should be avoided during Homoeopathic treatment, as should the use of over the counter medication, unless this has been recommended by an MD.
7/. Nothing of a medicinal nature should be applied to the skin

Please also remember as explained that the 3 doses has to be taken once .

No homeopathic medicine should be repeated until the reaction to the initial dose

Well if the remedy selected is ok then the first sign of improvement will noticed in the first few days .
vikas_grower last decade
Silicea is the drug of choice for this patient.There is no indication for calc.carb.
Zahid)2 last decade
Dear Zahid ,

You may be right , but the reason for going with Calc Carb is

The patient says following things

1) 'no lack of self confidence as such. only when i sweat i get conscious. and then i sweat more'

2)'I start sweating as soon as i wake up.
tiny droplets of sweats starts forming. they even drip if i close my hands'

3)'i do get a bit apprehensive regarding the performance. but i dont lose sleep over it. '

The patient says he is little but not very apprehensive apprehensive of performance

4)'and yes i do feel anxious when i am in front of lot of people and specially if i know they are watching me'

hence i went for Calc Carb but let us wait and watch
vikas_grower last decade
There is no brand written on it. I got it from a local homeo shop. Its in pellet form. Tiny ones. ;)

Plz. I have doubts. i take 250 ml of water(plz. can u tell me what exactly is spring water? or can i take it in normal drinking water?) and dissolve 2pellets of Lyco 30c (is it Lycopodium or just Lyco? )Now i keep just 150 ml of the solution and throw the rest? and then i dissolve pellets of Calc carb 30 (how many?)
Also intake of alcohol or brandy is forbidden. no medical reasons. religious one. So guess i will have to make this concoction in case needed again.
Also i should stop Nat Mur right?
Also what signs should i be looking for?
qwe786 last decade
Jst for the records:
I am she not he ;)
qwe786 last decade
Dear qwe

If u are in India or neighbouring countries , get the brand Dr Reckeweg or Wilmar Schwabe otherwise it is very difficult to be sure of the quality of the product .

Please get this brand and once u get the brand if u get in pellets form dissolve 2 pellets in 200 ml of spring water/or filtered water , let the pellets dissolve on their own which takes some time and then gently stir it .

Forget about the alcohol part .

Take 3 doses ( one dose = 1 teaspoon ) spaced 45 minutes apart do not eat or drink anything in between , do not take tea or coffee for few days ,do not use perfumes , deodrants , anti perspirants at least for 10 days .

Stop Natrum Mur and take Cal Carb after 7 days of stopping Natrum Mur

No repetition of medicine at least for 14 -21 days . as for the effects if the medicines turns out to be right , lessening of anxiety ,reduction of sweat .

If the medicine is not the right selection then no effect will be seen , however to come to any conclusion it takes about a week after taking the dose .

To summarize , only 3 doses as described above on one day only . No repetition . Stop Natrum Mur and then take Calc Carb after 7 days gap . Also get the brand as described above .
vikas_grower last decade
Continuing from my prevoius post , please buy Dr Reckweg/Wilmar Schwabe Calc Carb 30C in a liquid form which is a small bottle about 20 to 30 ml .From this bottle pour 2 drops in water aand take as described in the previous posting.
