One of Schussler’s tissue-remedies. Valuable in suppurations; when the abscess is perforated or after incision and the pus is yellow and tick. Suppurations of the tonsils. Abscesses of the cornea. Suppurating wounds. Suppurative processes in the lungs. Deeper acting than Hepar sulph., acts after this remedy ceases to have effect. Silicea comes in before this remedy to stimulate or prevent the suppuration (Dewey). Much recommended by H. Siemsen, M.D., of Copenhagen, in fibroma and myoma uteri, inoperable and with offensive haemorrhage. Also in impetiginous eczema (crusta lactea) and torpid glandular swellings recommended by him. I have found it very valuable in dry eczema in children (Author).
