    (See also Abscess.).

Lachesis. [Lach]

      This remedy does its best work in localized pyaemia, traumatic gangrene, and carbuncles. The indications are blue skin, sensitive parts, great prostration and scanty discharges. It has the prostration of **Arsenicum but lacks its restlessness.

Rhus toxicodendron. [Rhus-t]

      Produces a perfect picture of septicaemia, with redness and soreness at the point of infection. Chilliness, dry tongue, diarrhoea, restlessness.

Echinacea. [Echi]

      Pyaemia, dull aching in head and extremities. Infections spreading from uterus, tympanitis, sensitive abdomen, foul discharges. It seems to overcome to toxaemia of absorption.

Carbolic acid. [Carb-ac]

      This, internally, is a neglected remedy in septicaemia. Prostration, exhaustion to the point of collapse are indications. The patient falls asleep from weariness and wakens unrefreshed.

Arnica. [Arn]

      Anaemia and pyaemia, sore bruised sensations, loose stools, foul odors.

**Baptisia offensive exudates, is antistreptococcic, **Arnica, quiet, mental restlessness.

**Arsenicum. A frequently indicated remedy in septic conditions. Restlessness, anguish, local and general burning, vomiting and prostration.

**Pyrogen has a good clinical record. We cannot give its special indications, it is evidently a “mixed vaccine.”Boericke speaks well of both Streptococcin and Staphylococcin as to be compared with this remedy.
