Ganglion cysts on top of both hands

Hello doctors,
first of all I want to excuse for my poor english, and questionare mistakes - first time here. I am seeking for help. I have really annoying ganglions on both of my hands and my efforts to not to aggraviate them with certain movements gave me wrist and finger pain. My second concern is acid reflux which has been treated with PPI. After developing ganglions I've stopped taking those medicines, to my suprise GERD symptomps has subsided in about 80%. Diet changes and exercise has helped a lot(my doc told me not to exercise - which i did for past 18 years!)
Although I still have some minor reflux after bigger meals or certain foods.
Thank you in advance

ok take ammonium carb 5 for three days only and report also get hold of Benzoicum Acidum 3x.
rituraj 8 years ago
Ok, will do. Should I take it 3times daily or only once daily?
And single dose will be ?

I will never understand anty-homeopathy policy in my country,
it makes obtaining homeo drugs very problematic.

Benzoicum acidum avaliable in 5,9,15 form
hamonyt 8 years ago
Three times daily, take six teaspoon water in a cup put four drops of medicine in it, mix it well and take.

thank You

Hello, I've just noticed that You mention drops and I am using pellets and dissolving 4 of them (benz acid 5C) in a cup. My english got me again :/

(drops are not pills :) -must thank my friend for pointing it out)

So, am I doing it wrong?
I have to mention that liquid remedies are not avaliable here.
hamonyt 8 years ago
It's ok, but drops were more effective. You may continue with pillets.
rituraj 8 years ago
Please update
rituraj 8 years ago
I haven't update in a while cause i had to stop taking this remedy. It was doing more harm than good. After a week and a half of therapy I developed some nasty, burning
lession on my forehead - never had problems like that in my life, some acne of course, but this looks like sunburn, my skin is peeling off.
No changes in ganglion size at all. I am very dissapointed with outcome - new problem(dermatologic) and rather scared to try something new.
I guess that going under knife is inevitable (just some time wasted). Two weeks after I've stopped taking benz acid my forehead is still burned.
Im going to have an appointment with dermatologist in a few days and than I'll see what next.

Best regards
