mysterious eye infections..opthamologist who is not sure..herpes

Resolved Question:

Over the past 10 years I have had mysterious eye infections that have caused corneal abrasions. I have seen an opthamologist who is not sure, but believes it might have been Keratitis, or Herpetic keratoconjunctivitis (ocular herpes or eye herpes or eye shingles). This possibility has filled me with fear and crushed my spirit. I am not the same person I used to be.

In addition, the skin around my eyelids is always red and swollen and I have recently had a chalazion/stye in my eyelid.

My question is: Is there a homeopathic cure or remedy for this??

I have consulted with another homeopath, but have not taken anything yet. He is recommending something called Positronium, but I wanted a second opinion.

Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

I am sorry, I do not know anything about homeopathic medicine. I will opt out so someone else can help you.
