Herpes-Zoster in Trigeminal Nerve

Hi there,

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I've suffered with a chronic and recurrent herpes-zoster infection in the trigeminal nerve for a few years now. Over the years I've tried numerous remedies (i.e. Rhus Tox, carcinocin, and a few others I can't remember). I've had little/no success.

Can anyone recommend any other remedies. Symptoms are as follows:

- Frequent and chronic low grade pain in trigeminal nerve on right hand side of face
- History of lingual nerve damage and necrotic nerve needing root canal on lower molar (along nerve line)
- Recurrent herpes break outs on mouth/chin along nerve line always accompanied by swollen glands
- Systemic effect when infection occurs - fatigue, achiness, shakiness, lethargy, and very low fever (97 or so)
- Break outs seem to only occur during ovulation and beginning of menstrual cycle

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. I just need a new direction to explore with my homeopath...

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I forgot to mention that I also have the following symptoms during an outbreak:

- Sore throat on rt. side
- Occasional radiating pain down to rt. shoulder (extremely painful)
- Pain that goes up into the rt. ear
- When infection 'clears' my hearing improves and I even feel some 'liquidy' substance in rt. ear
- Hypersensitive and easily 'prove' homeopathic remedies

Mag Phos 6x ...dissolve 4 pills in tolerably warm water (half cup). Take a tea spoon of the solution every 15 minutes when the attack takes place.

Thank you so much for the advice. I spoke with my homeopath and she recommended a 30 CH instead b/c of my history.

I tried it and after three teaspoons... I felt so much better. The pain is dissipating and my energy is returning. :)

My only question is how often should I keep taking it? Until the symptoms clear completely? Or just give it more time to work?
