Pilocarpus Mycrophyllus [Jab]
Dr. Burnett’s homoeopathic remedy for mumps seems to surpass all the rest, i.e. Pilocarpus. It acts very quickly, and also relieves the pain.
Moreover, Pilocarpus has a reputation for the metastases in which mumps excels, whether to testes or mammae; when the swelling suddenly subsides, as the result of a chill, and worse troubles supervene. Pilocarpus also acts as a prophylatic.
