Aggravation or condition worsening???

Hi guys.

I don't know if I'm experiencing a homeopathic aggravation or my condintion is simply worsening.

I've always had little/mild symptomps of rosacea, almost unnoticable. A couple of months ago I visited a homeopath because I wanted to treat a different problem. I took 2 granules of Argentum Nitricum 1M, then 20 days later another 2 granules of the same. On the next day though I chewed a mint gum I remembered that the doctor had told me not ingest anything which has mint in it. I called her and told her what happened, she told me to come back. I did and she gave me another two granules of Argentum Nitricum 1M. Than I had a follow up 15 days later and the problem which concerned me hadn't gotten better.

So 8 days ago I took 2 granules of Argentum Nitricum but this time 10 M. And the skin on my face hasn't been worse. I have rosacea outbursts. My skin seems to be hyper reactive, it gets red every time when I wash my face and weird red spots appear. There are papules as well. The redness is on the nose and cheeks. Basically it looks like typical rosacea flare up.

As I said, I've always had this underlying condition. I had what doctors call pre rosacea symptomps, but now it's unbearable!!! It seems like I've developed a full blown rosacea during the last two months and it's been especially worse during the last week. And before going to this homeopath things seemed to be much much better!

Is it possibe that this is an aggravation caused by the medicince or is it simply my rosacea developing in more severe case?

If there is improvement at mental plane, worsening of skin symptoms is due to the remedy. If there is no change at mental level, it means your rosacea developing in more severe case.

Actually I do feel genarally somewhat better menatlly except for the times, when I see myself in the mirror and just stare hopelessly asking 'WTF!!!'

But is it normal for an aggravation to continue even 8-9 days after you've taken the remedy!?

It may continue even longer. You should follow your homeopath as you are feeling better at mental level.

Before I start, I am not a homeopath. But I would like to add that I am totally against these type of prescriptions, why 1M to start with & why so frequent repitions w/o monitoring the results.

The remedies should be administered gently watching all the aggravations, this should be the best way. Some Drs are so confident on their prescriptions that straight go to high potencies & frequent repetitions which I belive is not the best way. In case their prescription is wrong, these high potency remedies can leave their mark, don't think that homeopathy is absolutely safe & high potencies do not matter. By the way, which country are you located, I am curious on the prescribing method of the doctor?

I am sure the homeopaths here can further provide their views and correct me if I am wrong.

Hope you feel better

I'm from Bulgaria and the homeopath in question is said to be one of the best in my city. The population of the city is 500 000 people.

Generally a remedy in high potency works better on mental plane. Please have faith in your homeopath and don't worry.
