Mucous Cyst (Mucocele)

Mucous Cyst (Mucocele)

On 23rd February, 2010, Mrs. Nancy contacted me through the following E-mail:-

Dr. Mahmood:
Thank you for your encouraging website on homeopathy. Perhaps you can help me find the most appropriate homeopathic remedy for my husband. He had surgery on a fibroma, caused by accidental biting while eating. The oral surgery removed the fibroma from the inside lower lip. He now developed a mucous cyst ( mucocele) at the very site of the surgery. I would like to avoid another surgery for him, and I am learning as much as I can about homeopathy—a gentle approach, as you describe it. I read about silicea and he has been taking it 5 times a day, 4 days (30c). Today we started silicea 6x, 4 tablets every 15 minutes, 8 times. The mucocele is still there. I know that there are other possible remedies, like the calcarea carbonica that may work.
Questions:
Do you have experience in such mucous cysts in lower lips, and know what has worked?
I read that 6x worked for some for mucous cysts, but I find it hard to understand potencies (x, c, m) and how to decide. It seems that lower dosages are for acute, local problems, taken more frequently—6x or 12x. Is this correct?

Any suggestions from experience would works in this kind of situation??

Thank you for any information.

Sincerely,
Nancy

The following prescription was recommended for her husband on 25th February, 2010:-

You may try a combination of 3 drops each of Silicia-1M and Hepar Sulph-200 in some water twice a day for 2 days in a week (e.g. Sundays and Mondays) Calcarea Sulph-3X in trituration (Powder form) 4 times a day with warm water 5 days a week (e.g. Tuesdays to Saturdays). Lacally, apply Thuja-Q diluted with water twice a day daily.
Regards.

Dr. Mahmood:
Thank you for your recommendations. My husband followed your instructions and the mucous cyst inside lower lip is almost gone! It’s exactly a week tomorrow following your suggestions. Tomorrow begins the 2nd week. He is supposed to take the silicea 1M and Hepar S. 200c again, and thuja-Q locally in water for 2 days.
This is our first experience with homeopathy, and thanks to you, we witnessed that it does work. It’s fascinating and any reading recommendation you may have I would appreciate it.
Questions:
How do we know when to stop the treatment? The mucocele is about 90-95% gone. Just a small white flat matter remains—perhaps scar tissue from previous removal of fibroma.
Should it be 100% gone, smooth in the area?

Thank you.

A sergion said that I have a mucous cyst at the (inner) end of right cheek. It is not getting cured by antibiotics. It keeps getting back. I am observing it for couple of years now.
It would be very kind of you if you could suggest me some medication. I would be obliged.

Thanks a lot in advance, sir.
