A child about forty-eight hours old was taken with a haemorrhage from the bowels of dark colored blood. When I was called, it had had four actions from the bowels. I prescribed Arsenicum cm. When I called the next morning, the baby had had four more actions during the night, and things began to look rather discouraging. I had had one other case in the country, and it died, and they had lost one with the same thing.
I sat and watched it for awhile and I noticed that the baby would turn sick at the stomach and would vomit; this symptom made me think of Ipecac, reasoning from analogy that a woman having nausea with a haemorrhage, Ipecac would be the remedy: so I gave the baby a dose of Ipecac. cm. (H.S.), and it never had another haemorrhage or vomiting, and was speedily healed.
