HSV-2 (genital herpes)

Hi

I'm a 34 year old female who has recently shown the symptoms of HSV-2 and although medical tests show negative the doctors say it *is* herpes.

Can you let me know what questions you would like me to answer in order to help me?

Thanks
BB

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 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.

Thank you.

I have been looking into where I can buy Sulphur 200 in London and can't find anywhere. It only seems to be available in 6 or 30c.

Do you have any recommendations?

I took the recommended Sulphur 200c doses yesterday and this morning.

The itchiness has reduced but the sore areas are now weeping which concerns me.

Let the discharge happen. It may be a curative discharge. Please don't take more Sulphur now. The process has already started. Please report after 15 days.
