You have resorted to unnecessary and too much drugging already.

Gels is dull and droopy without any thirst.

Rhus will be restless and chilly.

Bell is red, burning and suddent onset.

Given symptoms are not enough to select a remedy at this stage.

If you are in the UK, you could try the Homeopathic Helpline on 0906 534 3404. It is expensive about £1.50 per minute. but I have used them in the past and they are very good. You will need to give ALL symptoms.

Best wishes
