Scarlet Fever

Ammonium carbonicum. [Am-c]

      This is also a useful remedy in scarlet fever. The throat is swollen internally and externally, the glands are enlarged, the tonsils are swollen and bluish and the child is drowsy. The drowsiness, miliary eruption and dark throat will distinguish from **Belladonna.

Zincum. [Zinc]

      **Zincum will be needed in certain enervated children who become restless and delirious, or else are quit and unconscious and very weak, too weak in fat to develop an eruption, and as a result of this non-development of the eruption brain symptoms, such as meningitis with sharp pains through the head, supervene. In these cases it will often bring out the eruption and save the child. **Cuprum may be needed in troubles from a suppressed rash and **Calcarea carbonica must be thought of for scrofulous children with an undeveloped or receding rash. **Kali sulphuricum is a remedy for the stage of desquamation.
