  1. I am sorry, I am new to homeopathy and do not understand the treatment: what is “SL”?

    My boss has been diagnosed with bullous pemphigoid. He is taking steroids, immune suppressants, and other drugs. The side effects of all of his prescriptions are giving him gastric distress and headaches. I thought Rhus Tox would be helpful, but prescribing is complicated. You chose Arsenica, and “SL”. Can you please advise?

  2. If the 1st prescription is in low potency we can further increase the potency if there is no response & also We can study the drug action .
    Thanks for comments.
