Sebaceous Prominence (fordyce spots)

Does anyone know a homeopathic remedy for fordyce spots?? Ive searched high and low looking for an aliment. Right now im drinking burdock root and it has worked quite well on my digestive tract, but not on my sebaceous prominence. Thought I'd ask you guys, any ideas??

kadwa last decade
1. Describe your main suffering?
Raised bumps (sebaceous prominence)on penis

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?
Very weak digestive system (possibly from eating fast food every day for months at a time, I have now changed my diet) Diarrhea (fatty; wattery) in the mornings, usually about 10 minutes after I wake up. Low body weight about 105 pounds (mal absorption?). Muscle tremors.

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?
Insecure about bumps, feel like women will respond badly which leads me to be sexually unheatlhy and frustrated.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?
Bumps are hard and red, I probably just did something to aggravate the bumps and im regretting the decision

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
I think it may have began in middle school. I had terrible anxiety and my stomach would really hurt every morning, I could barley eat. I would have really bad gas at school and sometime diarrhea.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?
For the bumps, the morning (when I first wake up) is the best and at around 12P.M-3P.M is the worst.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?
Toxins aggravate the bumps and my digestive tract (fatty foods, beer, etc) water also seems to have a negative effect. Vitamins and supplements make them better (Omega-3, muti-vitamin, beta-carotene)

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?
I think the bumps get worse when I get nervous because I tend to sweat which makes the bumps worse. They appear worse in brighter light, specially sunlight.

9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather?
Colder weather seems better and humid is the worst. Pretty much anything that causes excess heat or humidity is bad.

10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.
Usually I am quite strong minded in my ways, I get anxious in socal situations from time to time and sometimes its hard to look people in the eyes. I am irritable usually around people ive known for a long time and I like to argue topics.

- How do you feel before or during a thunderstorm?
No effect

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times?
To a degree, but I do what I think is best for myself.
- Are you sensitive to external stimuli like smell, noise, light etc?
I'm pretty sensitive to smell and noise.
- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
weeping, talking to one self etc?
I talk to myself sometimes when I'm not in public and im thinking or stressting and have a lot on my mind. If I have a lot of problems I'll break down and cry. I also itch my scalp a lot.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?
I seem to value peoples thoughts on me that I am less acquainted with, but I love my friends and family. I feel like my genetics are very good in some way and very bad in others.
11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?
Not getting a girl friend or getting married and not being a successful person.

12. What do you crave for in food items and what are your aversions?
Pretty much junk foods I crave. I tend not to like mushy foods like beans or mashed potatoes.

13. How is your thirst: Less, Normal or Excessive?
I'd say normal maybe a bit less.

14. How if your hunger: Less, Normal or Excessive?
I'd defiantly say excessive even though I never gain any weight.

15. Is there any kind of food which your body can’t stand?
It seems like my body can't stand fast foods, but I don't know exactly which ingredient it cannot stand. Most likely fats and perhaps lactose.

16. Is your sweat normal or less or more? Where does it sweat more: Head, Trunk or Limbs?
If I'm extremely nervous its excessive and it tends to have a bad almost poop like odor. It seems like it comes from my lower body but I don't know for sure. Usually I hardly sweat though.

17. How is your bowel movement and stool type?
Fatty, wattery, inconsistent, high methane.

18. How well do you sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
I move around a lot but I tend to sleep on my stomach.

19. Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?
I think I will be able to at some point in my life, but at this time I'm trying to get it figured out. Masturbation has lost it's pleasure and I'm seeking physical contact with a female.

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?
In many way's, I feel as if im connected to a higher power that not many know of, and that I have a special roll of some sort. I feel way more feminine than most men as well.

21. What medications have been taken earlier by you to treat the diseases and do you have any particular symptom surfacing after the medication?
I don't take medications, but I do smoke marijuana.

22. What major diseases are running in your family?
High blood pressure, osteoporosis, and depression

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance
About 5'6, pretty skinny, dark hair, attractive, glasses, long fingers, long legs, small torso.

Thank you for taking the time for this, sir. You will be rewarded for your hospitality and consideration of others :)

Please take three doses of Sulphur 30c at a gap of 4 hours for 2 days and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Ok so your saying to only take the sulfur for two days? But take that large of a dose over those two days? Thanks for your help, sir!
SPbumps last decade
One should that much doses as are sufficient to stimulate the vital force. If you are not comfortable with 2 days dosing you may take it only one day.
kadwa last decade
Ok, thank you sir! I shall take two day's of doses and report!

Ok, so about 3 days into treatment I see GREAT improvement. As the days went by the condition started to get worse again and I acclaimed this to the whole getting worse before I got better, but as the days go by things were just getting worse. I took a step back and thought that my heavy marijuana use may have something to do with it. After some reasearch I realized I've been ANTIDOTING myself with cannabis during the whole treatment :(. I am going to begin treatment again without smoking THC. The question I have is, do I have to wait a period before started up my remedy again or can I just start it now and not smoke during the treatment?

Thanks so much kadwa, the improvement I saw made me so happy and thankful there are citizen soilders like you healing people!!

You may do some breathing exercises to help youself wean away from smoking and these exercises will also give you much needed ecstasy if you could do these exercises regularly over a long period.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Anulom Vilom Pranayam and Kapalbhati Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.

Please take three doses of Sulphur 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine. Please don't smoke marijuana during the treatment.

Thank you so much sir!! I will defiantly practice these breathing exercises as I have been smoking pretty heavily over the past four years every day. A question I have though, because I have already purchased about 600 tabs of the sulfur 30c, could I take the 30c again? Or will I not see results from 30c anymore?

Dear SPbumps

Sulphur is your constitutional remedy. It should work best in high potency.
kadwa last decade
Respected Kadwa Sir,

Please reply to my Query also .I am also following the same treatment.

sam007 last decade
Ok, I will look for 200c today and begin treatment on Monday, thanks a million sir!!
SPbumps last decade
kadwa, I have not taken the 200c dose as of yet because it has been very hard for me to stop smoking marijuana. After hours or research, I feel that thuja may be a better remedy for me as it seems to fit me better than sulfur.

I have a question though. I think the sulfur has made mouth produce more sulferic bacteria and as a result an odor. Is this all in my head? Could the remedy have made me sensitive to odors?

Thanks a million
SPbumps last decade
i think that Sulphur should help you. Your thermal preference, mentals and peculiar digestion symptoms point to Sulphur. Any remedy won't harm you if you don't repeat it often. Sometimes the remedy takes long time to show it's effects.
kadwa last decade
Ok sir, I will take the 200c dose of sulfur as suggested. Sorry for the lag time this treatment has taken, I really need to stop smoking marijuana but I'm finding it hard. I will post and report back after I have stopped smoking and have taken a couple doses of sulphur.

Thanks so much,

Hello, I am a woman that had a bad case of sebaceous spots myself on all lips ;). I want to try the sulfur treatment that you have layed out here. I'm a little confused about how much to take as I live in LA, California and I don't usually see 'CC' usually only 'MG' (milligrams). Also there is a site that I have been looking at that has sulfur product

trimedica(dot)com / MSM-Products/products/1/

I was also thinking of adding a lotion directly to the spots like in this link

trimedica(dot)com / MSM-for-Personal-Care/products/2/

Please help, I know everyone is busy but this conversations seams to right on a lot of things would love the help if you anyone of you can help me! Thank you
