Mercurius Iodatus Ruber

James Tyler Kent describes the symptoms of the homeopathic medicine Mercurius Iodatus Ruber in great detail and compares it with other homeopathy remedies. …

(Bin-iodide of Mercury.)

Again, if in a Mercurius patient with diphtheria, tonsillitis, etc., the inflammation and pain begin on the left side, and incline to remain there or spread to the right, the bin-iodide is indicated.

These two iodides have more rapid and greater induration beneath ulcers and chancres than Mercurius, and in old syphilitics the iodides are sometimes more useful.
