Pseudo Psora

On beginning of eruption of the first teeth diarrhoea starts in tubercular babies; puls at this stage loss of power to assimilate bone-making material in food.

Croton Tig.: stool of tubercular children is strongly tainted with SYCOSIS. Sanguinaria. Phosphorous, Kali-carb., Tuberculinum and Stannum are quite typical of the tubercular discharges.

Sometimes in tubercular children stools are ashy or grey in colour showing lack of bile matter.

Bloody stools.

Child smells musty-mouldy.

In severe cases of bowel trouble child is fretful, peevish and whiney, does not want to be touched or looked at; prostration after stools marked.

They are worse milk potatoes, meat, and worse motion.

Before stool there is often vomiting and retching.

Stool with much slimy mucus or where much blood passes after stool.

Pin worms or intestinal worms but are found more plentiful in children with TUBERCULAR taint.

Rectal diseases alternating with heart, chest or lung troubles- especially of asthma and respiratory difficulties; e.g., haemorrhoids if operated on or suppressed are followed by lung difficulties or asthma and not infrequently by heart troubles.

Haemorrhage from rectum.

Prolapsus of rectum in young children. The bowel difficulties are so frequently accompanied with febrile states, delirium, gastric disturbances vomiting, purging with exhaustive purging stools.

Cancerous affection, malignant growths and such diseases have as a rule ALL the miasm present, especially the sycotic and TUBERCULAR combined PSORA can never be left out of malignancies, no matter what other element may combine with it; it fathers them all.


Anxiety and much loss of strength after urination.

In tubercular diathesis, especially in nervous or neurotic patients, urine is pale, colourless and copious with very little solids present.

Diabetic patients are usually strongly tubercular with diathesis strongly marked.

Bright’s Disease.

Urine offensive and easily decomposed, odour musty, like old hay or foul smelling- even carrion-like.

In tubercular children urine may be involuntary at night as soon as the fall asleep. Also copious This is why Calcareacarb cures so many as the pseudo-psora must be tackled.

Idiopathic hydrocele.

Prostatic troubles in cases where we have constant loss of the prostatic or seminal fluid, consumption sometimes develops.

These patients live in gloom with depressed spirits, gloomy forebodings, poor digestion, loss of energy, want of memory. Livid or ashy complexion, appetite often voracious as system calls for more food than it can properly take care of, when finally gastric derangements follow, until the organism fails to perform any function in a proper manner.

In rectum we find many conditions of tubercular origin, as strictures, fistulae, sinuses and pockets. (R)


Many psychopathic sexual perversion-these may be even worse in the TUBERCULAR PATIENT.

Menstruation. An exhaustive and often prolonged and copious flow. Haemorrhage bright red, sometimes accompanied with vertigo, faintness, and with pallor, worse by rising from recumbent position. Frequently they are too soon appearing even 2 to 3 weeks; they may or may not be painful, but are always exhausting. Feels badly a week before.

Suffering in many ways with headaches, backaches, gastric disturbances, neuralgias, etc. Occasionally menses appear with diarrhoea. with epistaxis, with febrile states, optical illusions, roaring in the ears, sensitiveness to noise, loss of appetite, abnormal pains, nausea and bitter vomiting. After the flow patient looks pale with dark rings or circles about eyes; or hollows eyed with a worn exhausted look. Hysterical symptoms often arise, of any form or degree in severity and often they are most difficult to treat.

Flow is often pale, watery and long lasting, as seen in Calcarea Carb. and Ferrum, etc.

Extremities are usually cold and often menstrual flow will induce general anaemia in young women from 17 to 21. They become chlorotic.

Often complexions become pale, assuming yellowish or ashen hue, accompanied by starchy or watery leucorrhoeas, palpitation of the heart, faintness and loss of vitality generally; later general weakness, flushing in the face, vertigo, ringing in the ears, hoarseness, dry tickling spasmodic cough and finally a true tubercular condition develops. Often they are very sad, gloomy anxious full of fanciful notions, forebodings with much fear; extreme sensitiveness, nervous irritability and inclination to weep.

Menses flow bright red, or light coloured and watery. We sometimes see nausea and vomiting, extreme purging of the bowels with diarrhoea or dysentery, fainting, cold sweat on forehead, but flow is seldom if ever clotted; being usually fluid-like, profuse, light red, watery and seldom offensive, and not infrequently it has the odour of fresh blood.
