Return of Old Symptoms with Sepia, HerpesOver four years ago I contracted herpes from a person who I was dating and had a pretty serious initial outbreak. In the following year I had a few brief outbreaks, but I went without any for three years until just a few days ago. I thought the virus had gone away or been suppressed, but something seems to have brought it back.
A few nights ago I took a dose of Sepia 30c to treat some irritability/hot flashes that I was experiencing. The next day I began to develop a herpes sore in the same spot that the initial outbreak occurred. I know that Sepia is the main remedy for female genital herpes outbreaks. Could this outbreak be the return of old symptoms? If so, why would I be experiencing this now if I have taken Sepia in the past with no outbreaks?
Also, if it is the return of old symptoms sparked by my vital force releasing the virus, should I not take anything for to reduce or suppress the outbreak? I usually take high doses of Super Lysine and apply diluted tea tree oil to the ulcer.
I am really interested in studying homeopathy and I am trying to make sense of it all. I can see that the contraction of this STD and the emotional situation I was experiencing during and after left me with a pretty big wound to heal. I have been working on recognizing and ceasing to spin out my traumas and wounds. Perhaps this recent outbreak is a part of that healing process?
Thanks in advance for any input.

Each time you take a remedy it does something different. Homoeopathic medicines, when used correctly, are not like drugs in that they are creating a specific effect. They are instead, triggering the Vital Force into healing you, which means that anything can happen from any dose if it is needed.
Many times people will go through various traumatic events while under treatment.Each time it can be something new - physical, emotional, mental. Throughout this process the person becomes stronger and more healthy, and shouldn't need to re-experience those old symptoms again (unless they get suppressed instead of being allowed to come out.)
