10cm diam. left ovarian dermoid cyst

38yrs old
Female-have 2 children, 7 and 5mths
Living in New Zealand
Sub-Tropical - high humidity, lots of rain
Dermoid cyst on left ovary-10cm in diameter
No current medicine but have been taking Thuja
Lower back ache and pressure at night, disturbs my sleep, aches, must keep changing position and roll over and back and over again. Menses normal to light, last 5 days maximum, no pain. Weakness in sacral-iliac region during day, feels like it will break
Back History-7yrs of age had a form of Mackies diverticulitis, my umbilical cord had begun to grow inside me from when I was born and tangled and adhered itself to my intestine, created a blockage and I was drowning in my body fluids, great pain, nearly died.
Grand mother had a cyst-no details
Cousin on mothers side had a malignant molar pregnancy-had chemo, she also had endometriosis, now has 3 children
Father had a small dermoid cyst removed from his coccyx
Mother had full hysterectymy as pre-cancer cells were found.
Aunt on my father's side had Pancreatic cancer, rheumatoid arthritis
I have a degree in Graphic Design
and almost completed a Diploma in Homeopathy
I have worked in the Film Industry for 15 years in the Costume Dept.
I love fat, salt, sour. Would rather have a meat pie than a piece of chocolate. Hate water with a passion, love juice
fruit, refreshing things
Tend to be friendly but can come across as haughty and arrogant. A bit of a know it all.
Become irritible if I lack freedom or feel like I am being controlled, just want to be free.
I take parenting very seriously, it's a huge responsibility but it irritates me and I just want to be free of it at times but I adore my children and would never abandon them though I feel guilty for not wanting to be a parent, can't imagine life without them.
In a relationship I can be demanding, hard work, don't like to back down or compromise, everything is a struggle to work out.
I find it hard to have fun as I don't want to appear silly but I also worry that something bad will happen and if I'm having fun I won't be ready.

It is very likely that you suffer from Endometriosis and your Gynecologist should have spotted it some years ago. I presume that you have done a scan which has shown your 10cm Chocolate Cyst which if left untreated will involve surgery shortly.

The therapy that I have prescribed to many is Bellis Perennis 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. Please follow my instructions precisely:

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle which can be used as a dose.

Report your response in 2 weeks.

If you wish to have more information on Endometriosis you are invited to type this word into the Search Box on this page and read the many cases that I have treated with the patient's own responses.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Thank you for your reply. But I do not have endometriosis. My menses are short, not heavy and not painful.
As I am studying homeopathy I know what succussion is.
Have you read my case properly?
I have never heard of anyone prescribing a remedy by sipping from the bottle, what about contamination?
I will look into Bellis Perenis though, Thank you again
 
zephyr38 9 years ago
Dear Dr.Joe Livera, I've just had a quick look and I see you have had some experience in treating cysts, I hope you will accept my apology, I feel I was rude. I do have one question, can you use the same treatment for a dermoid cyst (complex tissue, glands, hair, teeth) as for a chocolate cyst?
I see that Bellis Perennis had some amazing results with a choclate cyst.
 
zephyr38 9 years ago
I am glad that you have read some of my cases and accept your apology. I was about to reply your post which I shall copy below which although unnecessary in view of your apology contains some pertinent information which can help you in the future.

No hard feelings !

Joe De Livera



Ovarian Cysts are also referred to as Chocolate Cysts as the liquid is usually Chocolate coloured and they are usually caused by Endometriosis.

You have stated:
'Have you read my case properly?
I have never heard of anyone prescribing a remedy by sipping from the bottle, what about contamination? '

I have to ask you in turn:

Have you read my instructions precisely?

Here is what I stated above which I copy below;

'Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a CAPFULL which is the dose.'

If you still feel that there is some contamination in the cap you can always use a teaspoon.

I have suggested that the cap of the bottle be used as it is immediately available at hand after the bottle is succussed.

I note that you have studied Homeopathy and if you do not wish to follow my advice you are free to use your own therapy. Please note however that there are records on this Forum of many who have done so and have been cured. You may like to know that Bellis P 30c in the Wet dose seems to act like Danosol which is the drug prescribed for your ailment and and which has some other side effects.

I have already referred you to the cases I have treated where I have used the same therapy and you can read the patient's own responses in the thread below:

http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/60698/

There are many more cases on the Homeopathy and More Forum which I have treated and which you can access by typing:

'Endometriosis and Heavy Bleeding' into the Search Box on that forum.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
I have reread your last post and find that in my haste to answer your post I had overlooked to notice your reference to your Dermoid Cyst.

As no doubt you are aware this cyst is very rare but I am aware of a patient who was also an employee in my business organization who at age 21 was discovered to be increasing in the size of her abdomen. When her increased size was very noticeable I sent her to a gynecologist and the diagnosis was a Dermoid Cyst which was surgically removed and it had all the complex tissues you recorded. She was so shocked at the contents that she refused to get married and today after about 30 years after she was in surgery, she is still single.

My advice to you is to have your Dermoid cyst surgically removed preferably laparoscopically as soon as is convenient as the longer you delay, the more difficult it will be for the surgeon to remove the contents.

There is also a very slight chance of its turning malignant and the sooner you deal with it the better.

I am copying an article from MedicineNet


Definition of Dermoid cyst of the ovary
Dermoid cyst of the ovary : A bizarre tumor, usually benign, in the ovary that typically contains a diversity of tissues including hair, teeth, bone, thyroid, etc.
A dermoid cyst develops from a totipotential germ cell (a primary oocyte) that is retained within the egg sac (ovary). Being totipotential, that cell can give rise to all orders of cells necessary to form mature tissues and often recognizable structures such as hair, bone and sebaceous (oily) material, neural tissue and teeth.

Dermoid cysts may occur at any age but the prime age of detection is in the childbearing years. The average age is 30. Up to 15% of women with ovarian teratomas have them in both ovaries. Dermoid cysts can range in size from a centimeter (less than a half inch) up to 45 cm (about 17 inches) in diameter.

These cysts can cause the ovary to twist (torsion) and imperil its blood supply. The larger the dermoid cyst, the greater the risk of rupture with spillage of the greasy contents which can create problems with adhesions, pain etc. Although the large majority (about 98%) of these tumors are benign, the remaining fraction (about 2%) becomes cancerous (malignant).

Removal of the dermoid cyst is usually the treatment of choice. This can be done by laparotomy (open surgery) or laparoscopy (with a scope). Torsion (twisting) of the ovary by the cyst is an emergency and calls for urgent surgery.

Dermoid cysts of the ovary are also called simply dermoids or ovarian teratomas.

Thank you Dr. Joe De Livera,

My dermoid cyst is not growing and has not done so for a year, I suspect it has been there for quite some time. I conceived my 2nd child around the time it was found during an Ultrasound looking for Kidney stones, I passed a random one , they found no more but instead this 10cm diameter Dermoid cyst. They did not know at the time is was a dermoid but I have just had an MRI and it was finally diagnosed. It is not cancerous as I have had 2 separate CA125 tests done, 2 mths apart, and both were clear. I am not concerned about it other than that it's 'bizarre' nature :D. I want to try to reduce it's size so I can have laparascopy surgery as at the moment it is far too big.
Dr. DE Livera, I guess I am a little perplexed by using one remedy for all peoples cysts, when I have been taught to take each patient's case individually, does Hahnemann not say this? A dermoid cyst is certainly not a chocolate cyst, as I am sure you very well know. I carried my child full term and delivered naturally with no drugs whatsoever, an hour an a half later I had my 2nd baby girl.
I feel fine, I just have this foreign body in me that I need to reduce in size so I can have Laparascopic surgery otherwise it is a ceasar cut for me, I want to avoid that at all costs.
Regards Kate
 
zephyr38 9 years ago
The decision is in your hands as to how you should treat your Dermoid cyst.

I do not think the Bellis P can reduce your cyst as it is specific for Chocolate cysts. I do agree with your understanding Hahnemann's therapy but I do not agree with the theory he propagated of 'treating the totality of the symptoms the patient presents with one single remedy'.

I have been successful in the treatment of many cases with my 'Joepathy' and if you are interested in reading about my direct 'this for that' therapy you can type this word Joepathy into Google and read the thousands of my choice cases that are listed. I believe that my Chocolate cyst cases are also featured.

I use Radar when I am not familiar with an ailment and this software is by far more accurate in its choice of remedies than the mind of a homeopath in the selection of a remedy.

One point you will have to consider is that your cyst cannot be reduced with a homeopathic remedy or drug and the chances are that it will continue to grow. The earlier you treat it, the better it will be for you.

Best Wishes

Joe De Livera

: ) Thank you Dr. Joe, it's not what I wanted to hear, though I am almost certain you are right.
I hope you won't be offended if I get opinions from 2-3 others and then I will resign myself.
Thank you again, take care

zephyr38,

Homeopathy opposes removing any disease tissue. Homeopathy believes that to remove disease tissue causes the disease to move to more advanced forms.

You can see the homeopathic perspective in these two quotes.

'[Dr. James Compton] Burnett strongly condemns the surgical removal of tumors because the tumor is only a manifestation of a generalized disturbance and therefore its mere removal does not put right the general disturbance in the system which then expresses itself by recurrence of the tumor or by a graver pathology in a more vital part of the system.' - Dr. Farokh J. Master., Tumors and Homeopathy, Clinical Experiences of Various Homeopaths

'Since diseases in general are but dynamic attacks upon the life principle and nothing material - no materia peccans - as their basis (as the old school in its delusion has fabulated for a thousand years and treated the sick accordingly to their
ruin) there is also in these cases nothing material to take away, nothing to smear away, to burn or tie or cut away, without making the patient endlessly sicker and more incurable ' - Samuel Hahnemann, Aphorism 282 Sixth Edition

Homeopathy would never use one remedy for different people's cysts. We believe in a individual remedy specifically for you. Many homeopaths have cured cysts before.

There are some great perscribers here. You have not given enough information for someone to make a full remedy recommendation. I would recommend that you find a homeopath in person where you live. Otherwise, find a real perscriber here and use a real homeopathic remedy correctly.

I recommend that you avoid Joe's recommendations as he says that he disagrees with central tennents of homeopathy. Also, I am skeptical of the recommendation of Bellis-P, as it is not a powerful anti-miamsatic remedy, and your case is clearly very miasmatic.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Thank you so much. I agree with you , with Farokh and Hahneman. I am very suspicious of someone who prescribes one remedy for everyone's cysts. Specifics are generally for acutes but a cyst is a chronic and a sign of deep genetic pre-disposition. How do I get in touch with a serious prescriber? What more information, in your opinion, should I be posting? Are you a serious prescriber?
Regards Kate

Kate,

Glad that you find the value in Hahnemann and Burnett's observations.

I rarely prescribe for people who I do not see in person, because there is so much info of value in seeing the person. I've seen some people prescribing on forums based on minimal info without a complete history of the case.

Yet, there are some wonderful perscribers here on ABC that I do trust. My first recommendation would be to find a good homeopath where you live that you can see in person. Otherwise, I would post as much information about your case and case history here, and follow the homeopathic perscription of a good perscriber. The more info you can give, the more certain one can be about your remedy. There are some very good perscribers here.

I'm sure that there are some perscribers here who have cured cysts before.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Kate,

Just personally, in the few cases where I would treat someone without seeing them in person, I would certainly want a photography, very detailed information about their physical constitution, etc. Are they skinny or fat, tall, fast moving or slow moving, etc. What does their skin look like? Are there brown spots? Have they ever had any skin conditions? Lice? Scabies? Excema? Bad reactions to vaccinations? Etc. Any history of skin conditions or diseases, vaccinations, stds, etc. is of great importance.

Mental
Do they make friends easily? Are they a loner? Do they nice to those they love or mean? Etc.

Please also describe all medicines of any kind that you have ever used, especially those that you have put on your skin for any reason.
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Wow! Thank you all. Ok Here goes

Grandparents(Maternal and paternal):
Maternal- Grandfather suffered gout, had a stroke at 70, survived but became senile.
Grandmother had a cyst removed but no info available, suffered adult onset asthma.

2nd child-only 5mths old, breastfed, pureed fruit and veges, likes sweet

2) Patient's Medical History: (Include vaccination history and the
reactions to them if any)

Major illnesses(Chronologically):
Pnuemonia at 22, no drugs taken except maybe paracetamol.

Operations(if any chronologically):
At age 3 I broke my left femur in half, was traumatised by the experience of being in hospital away from my parents. Has taken most of my life to move on from it.
Surgery at 7 for an unusual occurrance
Apparently my umbilical cord had been growing inside me since birth and had got tangled up in my intestine, constricting it. I ate a whole lot of peanuts which could not get through the narrow area and it was back logging, essentially I was drowning in my own body fluids. If I had been left a day longer I would have died. I remember the excruciating pain. They took my appendix out while they were in there.

Present medication:
Homeopathy only-Lachesis 1M

Previous medication:
Allergic to penicillin based anti-biotics
came out in fine pin prick spots all over my body, worked it's way up from my feet to my neck, exceedingly itchy. This was 2 yrs ago.
Just had an MRI, was injected with Glucagon and Gadolinium.
Try not to take allopathic medication.

3) a) Present your Complaints in order of priority:(Give as much information as you can in your own words without much reference to medical and technical terms.)
I have a 10cm Dermoid Cyst where my left ovary should be. It creeps me out and I want it gone, I feel like I have a foreign body in me. I have 7mths to get rid of it, I have held the surgeons at bay for over a year and will not consider surgery till my child is weaned, she is 5mths, I plan to breastfeed her for a year. I do not like doctors or surgeons, I feel I have to protect myself from them. Cutting me open is my worst nightmare, I will have no control or awarenes of what will be happening. I get very protective of myself and if I feel a doctor is arrogant and does not actually care about ME, then I will get aggressive and sarcastic and get a new surgeon. I will behave very light bright and easy until you say something wrong and then I become fearsome.

b) Can you connect these complaints to any other events? What was going on in your life personally, physically, emotionally, socially, environmentally when the complaints came on?
I was first aware that something was not right in my pelvic reason when I was in love with someone who was bad for me and I couldn't/wouldn't see it. I felt like I was under their spell when I was with them but when I had left their company I could see things more clearly and yet would not end it. He was lying to me, stringing me along, I was all tied up in knots and thats when the pain happened, on my left side, right where I know now the cyst is. I believe it twisted and untwisted, I was lucky it didn't stay twisted or I would have had to have had emergency surgerey.

c) What are the things, which aggravate your suffering and which are those, which make you feel better? Example- time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing, movement, climate, music, consolation, thunderstorm, exam or other important events, smell, noise,light etc. Are you worse on any particular side of the body ?
< water(waterbrash), cold(I'm chilly, get cold to the bone, I like it to be so hot I moan about it), extreme temperatures(cannot get into a hot bath or shower as my skin is cold), lying too long(back aches, lumbar), tight things around waist or neck(can wear scarves but loosely), night(become paranoid, can't sleep, fearful).
>warmth, heat of fire, summer(just love summer, open air(exhilarating), nature(thrilling, at peace), being stroked(devine), sleep(but have trouble sleeping.

5) Mental Profile:

a) Describe yourself in your own words:
I am friendly, open, probably too open, say too much. But can also be gossipy and say too much about other people, I can be quite critical, don't like this about myself, tell myself I must stop but just can't seem to.
I'm passionate and like to connect with people, don't like small talk, tend to be a bit serious. Find it hard to let go and have fun, worried something bad will happen and I won't be ready. Can irritable, when questioned or conrtadicted. Very stubborn and strong willed. But deep inside I am a big softy and just want to feel safe and be able to trust someone.
I creative like to create things with my hands; sewing; costumes, craft, wood, clay.
I like to read, historical novels or fantasy.

More to come-baby is crying, gotta go
 
zephyr38 9 years ago
) Any grief, broken relationship, any anger/resentment against anybody, any fears, any phobias?
I guess if I was honest I am resentful of the person I was in love who kept lying to me, part of me knew and the other part did not want it to be true. I guess a part of me has not come to terms with the fact that he lied and that I chose to believe.
I am desperately afraid of Spiders, just seeing a picture of one makes me shudder.
I get angry and frustrated with my father. He is so...absolutist(not a real word I know), In his mind everything he says is just how it is, no-oneelse is right, so stupid!

c) Do you have any strange, peculiar or unusual symptom or feelings? How are you different from others?
I feel different, I see more than others do. I see people's souls, their pain, the way they cover it up.

6) a) If Female:(Describe in detail where ever necessary)

Age of Puberty: Cycle of periods: 12

Please describe the irregularities in periods, like pains, moods, flow

Any problem with intercourse or sexual organs?
No

7) Do you think you are able to satisfy your sexual desires in general?

9) Describe your thirst and hunger? (Examples: Average or Excessive or
thirstless or loss of appetite or any other associated details)?
Often completely thirstless or if I am thirsty it is very much so at night. Water makes me sick unless I lick it straight from the tap or garden hose.
I only eat when I'm hungry, can go for long periods without food. Tend to crave sugary things the week prior to my menses arriving.

10) Describe your sleep? Do you have a particular posture of sleeping?
Are there any Recurring or significant dreams?
My sleep is bad, disturbed by the dull ache in my lumbar region. I prefer to sleep on my left side but roll over to side, then back, then the other side, then back again, spend the whole night rolling over looking for relief which lasts minutes only.
I often have a re-occurring dream of being in the the palm of my own hand, I am so tiny, the mounds and creases of my hand are like giant hills, I feel so small and in awe.

Sweat tends to be sour smelling but I don't sweat much. If I do it's around my lips, back of the neck, lower back and armpits, oh and between or under breasts.
Urine is very oily, slimy often the colour of straw and has a meaty smell.

12) what is your preference—in climate, weather? (Examples: sun/shade/cold
dry/cold damp/hot humid/not extreme/well ventilated)
I like to be warm but like the open air. I like sun, to be hot, so I don't have to wear layers, I like light clothing as if I'm not wearing any.

13) Other details you want to say or if there are any peculiar things going on in your physical or emotional plane.
I have never suffered any major skin issues but have had ringworm and treated it with Lamisil, before Homeopathy came into my life. I do have many moles on my skin as do the majority of my family, flat ones and raised or pedunculated ones.
 
zephyr38 9 years ago
Excellent information...

Please list all the homeopathic remedies you have used in order of use, and with how much time you were on each of them, and what your reactions to them were.

With moles, flat and raised on the skin that the family has, you have tertiary inherited figwarts. The fishy smell also confirms this. Your history is also psoric, so the remedy should also be anti-psoric.

How long have you been on Lach?

This is my collection of rubrics for Lach. (Psora 3, TB 1, Syph 2, VD 2, multi 3, cancer 2, Bonninghausen's Remedy for Averting Cancer, Grimmer's Remedy for Antidoting Toxins, Cardinal remedy in the treatment of Figwarts).

What is a usual day for you like? Describe a day from waking up on. What do you eat, meals, sleeping, etc.?

What is your career? What area do you work in? Have you spent many years in the same place, or moved around much? Do you like what you do? What do you enjoy doing for fun? What do you feel is your life's work? If your life were perfect, what would it be like?
 
Homeopathy International 1 9 years ago
Also, when did you start homeopathic treatment.
Please list the homeopathic medicines you've used, with the potiencies, and the effects you've had to each.

The closest rubric I have is for Ovarian cancer is this. It does not say if it is Grimmers' or who's.
Ovarian cancer, Remedies; Ars., CON., Graph., Lach., Med., Psor., Thuj..

Good to see that Lach. is on the list. How are you responding to the Lach 1M?

What has been your response to the Thuj., also on the list?

You mention the moles on your body? Have more of these come out since starting homeopathy? Where on your body are these moles? What color? Please describe in as much detail as possible. Were you born with them? When did they start?

Also, do you sweat? If so where, and please describe as much as possible.

The overgrowth of hair is a very sycotic symptom. We definitely have a mixed-miasm case. Sycosis & Psora.


'[Dr. James Compton] Burnett strongly condemns the surgical removal of tumors because the tumor is only a manifestation of a generalized disturbance and therefore its mere removal does not put right the general disturbance in the system which then expresses itself by recurrence of the tumor or by a graver pathology in a more vital part of the system.' - Dr. Farokh J. Master., Tumors and Homeopathy, Clinical Experiences of Various Homeopaths

'Since diseases in general are but dynamic attacks upon the life principle and nothing material - no materia peccans - as their basis (as the old school in its delusion has fabulated for a thousand years and treated the sick accordingly to their ruin) there is also in these cases nothing material to take away, nothing to smear away, to burn or tie or cut away, without making the patient endlessly sicker and more incurable ' - Samuel Hahnemann, Aphorism 282 Sixth Edition

Golly ok,
Last year for treatment of my Dermoid I was prescribed Thuja 3x 3 times daily for 3 weeks, began to prove the remedy in my dream by imagining my body became even more covered with moles then all fell off. We did notice that the dermoid had had vascular septations and then it didn't. I was pregnant at the time so not sure if the remedy did that or the pregnancy. Plus medhorinnum 1M, couldn't tell you the after affects but feel it is a good remedy in light of my family history(we can trace our family back to the Mad King George, so theres the Sycotic, and he slept with everything under the sun, theres the medhorinnum)
Constituttionally I have been on Naja 1M, this did wonders for me, more tolerant, not so irritible, calmed me down. Also been on Lac Leo 1M, did quite well on it, stopped having such bad arguments with my husband.
I self prescribed Lachesis 2 nights ago, I am sleeping better and feeling my self unwinding, less irritable, more tolerant.
Both parents are of British derivation, my father is Welsh, both sides of family can be traced to Britain, France and Scandinavia. We live in New Zealand which has very harsh sun, the ozone is very thin here. People from European countries will more often than not develop moles of some sort.

At the moment a usual day consists of me getting up, breastfeeding my baby, getting my 7year old up, fed, dressed and out the door, I often don't eat till I get back at 9am and often won't eat breakfast as I feel I am too busy(I know this is bad), normally I would have some wheat and gluten free toast with butter and cheese on it or porridge. Also will eat slices of apple before anything else, this triggers a bowel movement, good for me as I tend to not go very often as I am usually dehydrated(hate water).
Lunch is fruit(mandarins, kiwi, apple and wheat and gluten free toast), will snack on fruit all day. In between meals I am cramming chores and study(Homeopathy) between looking after my 5mth old baby Also helping out my sister who is pregnant and suffering Hyperemesis, by looking after her 18mth old too. I feel I am too busy and there is too much going on in my head.
Dinner is meat and three vege, chicken, roasted veges(potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots) or lightly boiled broccoli and carrots. I have a husband to feed who like meat and three vege. Evening are stressful for me, baby crying, getting dinner ready, sit down and eat, feed baby, clean kitchen, breastfeed baby, put her to bed then 7yr old to bed then collapse on the couch and do more study, materia medica, bed around 9-9:30, fall asleep fast but wake at 3 from aching in my back, feel like I just roll over and change position all night.

When I work I am in the Film Industry in the Costume department, taking care of and dressing the stars, I am in charge of all costume continuity for all characters and extras I have a team of 4 to manage and am answerable to the designer if something goes wrong, I am very well paid. The nature of the job means that every day is different, I like this, I hate knowing what I'm doing same time every day, it would drive me nuts! I do like what I do but the hours are far too long and I am too old for it now and my priority is my family now.
For fun I like to go on nature walks, New Zealand is all about nature and it is right at our front door.
My life's work is to heal and create.
If life was perfect my husband and I would own our own home, I would have studios for everything, sewing, craft, woodwork, consultation room, A beautiful garden full of our Materia Medica :D, people would come to me to be healed and I would create what ever took my fancy. Aaaah :)

(More to come)

Started Homeopathic treatment last year in April.
Thuja 3x, 12c, 1M
Medhorinnum 1M
Lac Leoninum 1M
Naja 1M
Details in previous post. Please note that this Dermoid is not Cancerous, an over growth yes but not malignant.

Moles- I have them everywhere. But my biggest one, which is a fig-wart (I hate it with a passion) is probably 1cm in diam. and sits right at the top of where my labia majora meet, hidden in the pubic hair (It's like sign isn't it?)
The others are much smaller and are generally around my neck and chest area, during my pregnancy I developed small itchy moles between my breasts.
I don't believe I was born with them but do remember the big one being their when I was under ten.
As a teenager I was embarrassed about them and used to tie super thin elastic around them so they would fall off, in hind sight I wonder if by doing this I sent them in deeper to my ovary. Oh foolish youth. 98% of my moles are a dark brown. Seriously, I probably have every type of freckle, mole or fig wart.
I have a very proud mole on the left side of my chin(most of my pathology is left sided) and other flat moles on my face and neck, they are everywhere, it sounds awful I know but I'm not hideous, in fact I am reasonably attractive, not everybody's cup of tea but I am admired in the street by men, my husband comments on this.
I don't really sweat, if I do it's on the back of my neck in the corners of elbows, knees, between and under breasts.

Dear Jewish Homeopath,

I am most certain you are a very busy person but was wondering what your thoughts on my case were. Or, if you have decided not to continue this forum, please let me know and I will move on.

Regards Zephyr38
