I have been giving my 12 year old (small, like 9 year old)

Customer Question

I have been giving my 12 year old (small, like 9 year old) son thuja 30c 2 pills 2x a day for a few weeks for molloscum. It vastly improved, then aggravated on his leg, improved again and now he still has original spot on face, a huge new cold sore on lip, but most other spots on legs and arms are gone. Should we stop? I have been reading about possible overdose with thuja and I am worried. Many thanks

This is Dr. David

thuja homeopathic therapy will not cause overdose problems.

the cold sore is a different virus than his molloscum.

if he is stressed or not getting enough sleep or not eating enough fruits and vegetables, this can cause his immune system to be decreased and cause huge new cold sore on his lip

it doesn't sound like the thuja is helping that much.

let me know if you have questions.
