There was a feeling of dryness and soreness in the chest. Voice was hoarse. The nose was discharging a thick, yellow matter. The tongue was characteristic of the remedy. There was some diarrhoea, slimy, yellowish and watery. Cough was violent and wearing, especially worse at night. There was not much expectoration, but it was hard to get up and was yellowish and sometimes slightly streaked with blood.
There seems to be a fad just now to extract the teeth of persons suffering with rheumatism. Possibly it is justifiable in occasional cases. Recently in conversation with one of the best dentists that I have ever known, I stated that I believe that in about one-half of the instances where people had their teeth extracted for relief from rheumatism, the teeth were sacrificed unnecessarily and without benefit to the patient.
ABOUT BOILS AND CARBUNCLES. Although I studied homoeopathy later and graduated at a Homoeopathic College the following year, I have never found anything better to prevent boils. I asked one of the professors in the Homoeopathic College about this remedy and he said the action was homoeopathic. At any rate I have cured many people of the tendency to boils by this treatment.
