recurrent herpes - please help

I am 43, female, have had herpes for 15 years, outbreaks now almost every 2 weeks, very frustrated. I seem to fit Sepia remedy. Not sure what strength to use. I am 5'6', 140 lbs, always cold, tire easily (especially after exercise), can't lose weight, wake every night to urinate, don't drink coffee, mostly water/green tea, crave carbs/sweets althougth I don't eat much of them, history of depression, very stressed out now, unemployed, raising child by myself, don't feel depressed but definitely not motivated at all. Outbreaks do not have lesions per se, look more like papercuts with swelling. I have Sepia 30C and 200. Was desperate today and took one dose of 200, now not sure what to do. Any help is greatly apprecicated! Thank you.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
If your remedy doesn't result in any improvement after 10-15 days you may provide complete information.

So after 10 days you may copy the Questionnaire from the following thread
and post all the questions here duly answered. On that basis your remedy may be worked out.

Thank you. Should I take any more Sepia or was one dose of 200 enough?

One dose of Sepia 200 is enough. Now let it work for 10-15 days and report back.
