Open wounds, very sore and painful, difficult granulation, tendency to inflammation and suppuration. Useful as local application in phlegmonous erysipelas, bad ulcers of os uteri, offensive leucorrhoea, and in various root toothache. Especially used in healthy, cuts, lacerated wounds, locally and internally. Better than Arnica. Ludlam recommends it in chronic endocervicitis and scrofulous ulcerations with much purulent leucorrhoea. Deafness (often from inflammation). Calendula diminishes the suppuration, heals often per primam intentionem, and was much used with good results in the American Civil War.
