The main symptom of Hepar sulph is hypersensitivity (over-sensitivity), which means that even a slight touch in the affected area can cause discomfort. Not only human touch, but even the touch of clothing or a cold breeze can cause discomfort. In addition, sound (loud noises) and smell can also cause discomfort. Hepar sulph is not only physical hypersensitivity, but also mental hypersensitivity. That is, the person is very irritable. This is usually treated with homeopathic remedies such as Phosphorus, Sulphur, etc. to reduce inflammation. However, if symptoms persist, Hepar sulph can be used to treat any disease.
