Plantar WartsI have had a plantar wart for twelve years. I sought medical help but nothing worked and they finally told me it would go away on its own which it has not. I wasn't too concerned about it until a year ago when it started spreading. I now have 3 on my foot and two warts on my hands. I don't know much about homeopathy but I have been using essential oils and have had some success though the original wart is still there. I was reading about Thuja and Antimonium crudum and was wondering if someone could give me some advice on what to take and what dose. Thank you!

Patient ID: Sex: Age: Nature of work: Habits:
I am a 35 year old female and I currently stay at home with my two small children but before that I was head buyer for a major retail company. I had employees under me and a very busy schedule which I loved. I love being a mother and I feel like I am good at it but I miss the clear directives and understanding what needs to be done and feeling very good at my job. I am very fit and almost addictively into healthy eating and exercise but have bouts of binge eating sometimes salty, sometimes sweet food. I went to school for photography and I love to take pictures but working as a photographer was very stressful for me.
Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experience and happenings.
1. Describe your main suffering? State the correct location.
I have three plantar warts on my left foot and warts on both pointer fingers around the nailbeds and two on my right thumb around the nailbeds. They do not cause me physical pain but I do have much mental and emotional distress over them. As I treat them I find my emotional well being gets tied up in whether they look better or worse.
2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body? I have no other physical sufferings that I can think of.
3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings? When they appear to be drying out or even when I have managed to get rid of one I feel good and in control, when they appear worse or I get another one I feel hopeless and out of control.
4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst? Describe the sensation in your own words. I feel discouraged and hopeless imagining that it will take over my body.
5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease? It started when I was 25. The job that I had worked at for 5 years offered me the job I had been working towards but offered me a very low salary much lower than average and I left for a much less glamorous but much higher paying job with another company where I was treated very well. A year later my old employer contacted me and I returned to my old employer. I got the wart in the year I was away. That was 11 years ago. Last year it started spreading.
6. Which time of the day you are worst? Early in the morning
7. What are the things that aggravate your suffering and those that ameliorate the same? Example: time, temperature, pressure, rubbing, washing, eating, tight clothing etc.
My warts are not painful but seem to get smaller and harder when I soak them in salt water and keep them dry, wet seems to cause them to thrive.
8. Do you think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)? I have not noticed this.
9. When do you feel better, during hot weather or cold weather, humid or dry weather? I adore cold and dry weather and despise hot and humid weather.
10. Describe your general mental set up? Are you Moody, Arrogant, Mild, Agreeable Changeable, Nervous, Suspicious, Easily offended, Quiet, Arguing, Irritating, Lazy etc.

- Do you like being consoled during your tough times? I like to have people to talk to but I am not fond of being touched.

- Do you have any typical habit or gesture like nail biting, causeless
Weeping, talking to one self etc? I twirl my hair when things are tense or stressful.
- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife? I am very close with my sisters and mother and very distant from my brothers and father. My husbnad and I have a very good relationship only minor disagreements here and there.
11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly? I often dream that I am responsible for leading my children ( or my siblings when I was younger) out of dangerous environments but would always wake up before I had been successful.
12. What do you crave in food items and what are your aversions? I love fruits and vegetables. I eat eggs everyday. I crave bread but rarely eat it. Pizza and french fries would be my guilty pleasures. I like baked goods like pumpkin or banana bread or cookies. I have an aversion to mushrooms, peanut butter, ice cream or overly sweet anything.
