Homeopathic remedy for

Dermatitis - Eczema - Hot Spots - Abscesses - Ear Infections - Decaying Teeth - Mastitis - Swollen Glands - Yeast Infections - Nasal Discharge

Indicated in any condition where there is inflammation with a tendency to suppuration (to abscess, fester, form pus, discharge, weep and run). Hepar has an affinity to the lymphatic glandular system, skin, teeth and respiratory mucous membranes.

  • PAINFUL, INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS
  • UNHEALTHY SKIN; EVERY LITTLE WOUND SUPPURATES
  • Inflamed skin; abscesses, eruptions and ulcerations are sensitive, and bleed easily, discharges a foul smelling excretion; around the principal ulcerations are little pimples (Rhus. Tox.)
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Hot Spots
  • Skin falls off and humid soreness on the genitals, and in the folds between the scrotum and the legs
  • Abscessed and Decaying Teeth and Gums
  • Sneezing and Nasal Discharge
  • Yeast-like discharges
  • Discharge from the sheath
  • Mastitis
  • Imbedded objects (splinters, foxtails, thorns, etc.)
  • Boils and abscesses. Hepar sulph. can be used to ripen an infection, then give silica to expel the matter and push it out (e.g. splinters, abscesses).
  • Ears: CHRONIC OTORRHOEA
  • Ear infections. Itching in the ears (Baryt. c., Sulph., Sil.). Discharge of pus from the ears (Aur., Bovis., Graph., Merc.). Scurfs on and behind the ears (Psor.)
  • Eyes:
  • Styes. Inflammation of the eyes and lids, sore to the touch; lachrymation. Eyes ache from bright light, when moving them. Agglutination of the lids at night (Graph., Lyc., Merc., Puls.); secretion of hardened mucus. Smarting pain in external canthus (corners of the eye). Pressing pain in eyeballs; may feel bruised when touched
  • Infected Sinuses with pus forming
  • Hip Disorders, Rheumatic swellings with heat and redness and a sensation as if sprained. Drawing pain in the limbs. Stitching pain in the joints.
  • Glandular swellings
  • Glandular swellings containing gravel or stones
  • Should be remembered in chronic hepatitis and abscesses of the liver and kidneys when there is a vent for the pus, but the toxic symptoms persist.

Keynotes

  • Like Calcarea, the Hepar sulphuris type has a tremendous FEAR OF BEING ALONE
  • OVER-SENSITIVITY, physically and mentally, the slightest cause irritates him
  • IRRITABILITY - AGGRESSION
  • MOST INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS SUPPURATE (are discharging pus) WHEN THE REMEDY IS NEEDED
  • Another indicator of Hepar. Sulph. is, the patient will OVER REACT TO TOUCH with aggression, snapping or clawing. This gives the impression that the inflammation or wound is much more painful than you might expect from its
  • appearance.
  • CLAY COLORED STOOL
  • Characteristics (Patient Profile / Personality / Psychology): The mental symptoms are marked by irritability
  • Most Hepar. sulph patients are EXTREMELY CHILLY, AND SENSITIVE TO DRAFTS AND COLD
  • DISCHARGES MAY HAVE A PUTRID, YEASTY OR SPOILED CHEESE SMELL

Hepar is very hurried, quarrelsome and very dissatisfied - nothing pleases. There is in them a great touchiness. Thus
Hepar sulphuris represents the violent extreme of Calcarea sulphurica.

Dose:
6th to 200th. The higher potencies (30c-200c) may abort suppuration, the lower (6th-12th) promote and hasten it.
