  1. Andrea Livoti says:

    Can you please help me find a homeopathic remedy for cyclic vulvovaginitis. There’s itching and inflammation of the clitoris and outside part of the vulva usually before period that’s worse at night. No discharge but mainly itching, redness and swollenness of clitoris and sometime vulva, labia that’s also the skin in those areas break easily and there are micro cuts like papercuts from sex and even inserting menstrual cup. Is there a homeopathic supplement that sounds like it may help for this.? Also, I have another issue that I’m also looking for a blurriness in my left eye. About a year ago I had an eye infection resulting in inflammation of my cornea and a painful infection. I was given antibiotic eye drops and the infection went away and my vision slowly improved but only got about 90 percent better. I believe that since my left eye was still weak from the eye issue a year ago, I’ve been under a lot of stress from moving and my left eye has gotten a little blurry lately so any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you! -Andrea

  6. Dr. sharma,
    Please help. I’ve had re-occurring bacterial vaginosis for the past 11 years. I turn 48 tomorrow.ive had success with homeopathy for other ailments and respond immediately when it’s the right remedy. I haven’t been able to figure out which one I need. Now when I treat ekrg metrogwk, I get a yeast infection after. I had success with probiotics then colostrum for about a year each but my body reverts back. Medorhinum seemed to have the symptoms but I’ve never heard of it. I’m also going through peri-menopause. Symptoms are burning and itching of inner labia with redness. The discharge is thin watery white color like milk, at times it can be a little more crcamy but not very thick. My underwear often is spotting wet. The smell can be like ammonia or fishy. Currently it is a faint fishy smell. I had it before my period, at the end if my period it was foul string smell, not quite fishy but odorous. I have an ice pack in my vulva now and that feels good. During my period I was moody, cried a lot was bloated and emotion of frustration and agitation. Overall, I’m worse in damp heat. That had been the climate here in Hawaii. This past week it’s been cool, cloudy and somewhat rainy and that makes me feel better. I’m hoping I can get a handle on this. It’s so frustrating, the discharge and smell and re-occurance. I think overall it drains my energy. I vivid dream every time I sleep and feel tired from that as well.
    Thank you for your help!
