Thank you very much!

I have ordered some Merc Sol. and will let you know how it goes.

Out of curiosity, is there much of a difference between Merc Sol and Merc Viv? Some websites seem to use them almost interchangeably...
MissHill 8 years ago
very very little difference. many websites use them inter- changeable

THUJA 1M one dose every 15 days. Stop as soon a change is seen in the size or sensation in/around the cyst.

A quick update - I have now been taking Merc Sol for about a week, as you have prescribed. The cyst has decreased in size about 50% - I am quite impressed! This is my first time trying homeopathic medicine.

However, I went to the Dr. today and was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and was given some antibiotics. Should I take them while using the Merc Sol? I still have another week left, as you suggested 15 days...

Please advise...

Thank you so much!

Hi there,

So, things seemed to be going quite well... but then last night, the cyst seemed to flair up quite badly again and became very hard and painful. I couldn't sleep and had to take a sitz bath in the middle of the night. Not sure what is going on..

Any suggestions? Thank you...

It could be a problem of antibiotics. nothing to do with our homeo medicines
Pl continue our homeo medicins
