You may ask me one thing more. “Is this pure Homoeopathy?” You know I am by training an Allopath; and I still follow the fundamental principles of Surgery, “Pus must be let out”. I do know that in Homoeopathic literature we find instances where knife has not been used at all. I may be allowed to say that Homoeopathy does taboo surgery.
This is not a solitary case of puerperal sepsis that I have treated with Homoeopathy but I have treated others with the indicated remedies. But I request you to remember Pyrogen, especially when there is a good deal of disparity in pulse- temperature ratio, which has served me well on previous occasions.
Homoeopathic line of treatment is based purely and solely on symptoms. You know how difficult, or say almost impossible to elicit any symptoms from children. Repertories do not help us because of paucity of symptoms. I therefore say that diagnosis on pathological lines has also its own value in Homoeopathic treatment, and should not be ignored.
