This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I understand Arnica 30c (how many pellets?) may help, together with coconut oil + arnica oil (or tincture, but cant find the tincture in the us) on the scalp, is this correct?

Thanks

Do not use Arnica that way. The possible side effects can be very difficult to eliminate. It is not homoeopathy and the use of Arnica in this way was championed by someone who was not a homoeopath.

This questionnaire isn't one I would normally use, and it seems to have encouraged a lot of short answers, has lead you to particular answers, or yes/no responses, which does not help me to make a confident prescription. Would you be willing to answer my own set of questions instead?
