DEAR MR. BARKER, I am a fresh convert to Homoeopathy. How I got covert is a long story which I shall relate later on. To-day my faith in the true and mysterious system of treatment, homoeopathy, is more firm than ever. It is from a case of ringworm treated without any local application. For us allopaths it is an enigma how a case like ringworm can be cured without any local medication.
Here is a case which will prove that the right way of treating skin diseases is not by means of local applications but by treating the man in the way which the father of healing, Dr. Hahnemann, taught.
A boy T.C. aged 4 years was brought to me on the 24th June suffering from ringworm about 2 inches in diameter on the outer aspect of the left thigh. The boy was pale, sickly and weak and had a few shotty glands in the neck. I had read in one of your papers that ringworm is cured by Tuberculinum bovinum, so seeing that constitutionally too T.B. was suspected, I gave one powder of Tub. bov. 200. I saw the case after 15 days and found that the ringworm was half cured. I gave another powder of Tub. bov. and to-day I saw the case again and found that the ringworm is absolutely cured.
Thanks to the valuable advice obtained from your magazine, I am trying to become a pucca homoeopath. May God spare you for many long year to come to guide so many fresh converts all the world over.
