Hepar sulphuris is a homeopathic remedy that was created by Samuel Hahnemann, the father of homeopathy.



  • Homeopaths prescribe Hepar sulphuris for colds, coughs, sore throats, croup , abscesses, earaches, inflamed cuts and wounds, asthma , arthritis, emphysema , herpes, constipation , conjunctivitis, Candida albicans infections, syphilis , sinusitis, and skin infections.


  • Colds and Catarrh:

    This is a cold or the flu that usually has symptoms such as a fever, sneezing, and a need for warmth.

    There may be excessive catarrh which goes from being watery to thick in its consistency. The nostrils become raw and sore and the throat gets a tickle. There is often pain in the ears and this may very well develop into sinusitis.

    Hepar sulph can be a helpful homeopathic remedy for all of these symptoms.

  • Coughs and Croup:

    Hepar sulph is recommended when there is a dry hacking cough that is usually associated with a sore throat.

    The cough may become worse through time and may cause the individual to feel as though they are actually choking as a result of it.

  • Sore Throat:

    Hepar sulph works well for a throat that is sore and which creates hoarseness. This homeopathic remedy can work to get rid of the pain associated with it and the coughing that accompanies it as well.

  • Skin Conditions:

    Hepar sulph works well for skin that becomes rough and inflamed, or which develops eruptions such as acne. These skin eruptions may be painful, smelly, and very slow to heal.

  • Digestive Disorders:

    Hepar sulp is commonly recommended in situations where there is often a presence of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The abdomen just doesn’t feel right as there is an unsettled feeling.


If symptoms do not improve after the recommended time period, the patient should consult homeopath or health-care practitioner. Do not exceed the recommended dose.


When taking any homeopathic remedy, the patient should not use peppermint products, coffee, or alcohol. These products are known as antidotes in homeopathy. They counteract the homeopathic remedies.
