Lachesis. [Lach]

      Another remedy for the low forms is **Lachesis. Here the fever is worse at night. The slightest touch to the surface of the body is unbearable. It follows **Belladonna well. There is tenderness at one spot and typhoid symptoms are present. In inflammations associated with a gangrenous tendency, such as is found in appendicitis, it may be well indicated.

**Apis may be useful in the chronic form, with tendency to dropsies.

**Colocynth is also recommended, but it hardly corresponds to inflammatory conditions of any kind. It belongs to the neurotic remedies.

**Arsenic iodide corresponds especially to the tubercular variety and **Arsenicum album is of great value in septic cases of an asthenic type.
