  • Great case, thank you! Listen, it appeared to be Sulphur all along. Do you think Psorinum helped at all? It seemed to make him worse. Also, since he had no outbreaks on his face, what did he think people were staring at?

  • Seems to be really a school book case. I would like to know at what point did you stop the allopathic drugs, or ointments? Itching is not easy to handle without any help. Or did you recommend some other, more homeopathic friendly ointment instead? 🤔
    Thanks!
