Veratrum Album In Malaria


Later it was observed that the extremities were very cold and the child “chilly”. Menyanthes 200 was given, still no effect. The mother came to me one day and asked me the reason of his sons forehead also being very cold and sweaty at the same time. Of course, I gave her no reason, but handed her ever 3 powders of Veratrum Album 6. The child got well from the next day and had no relapse uptil now-3 years since.


A child aged 3 or 4 years. He was suffering from malaria. It was rainy season and the boy complained of bone-pains. I gave him Rhus Tox 30 and no benefit came forth. Later it was observed that the extremities were very cold and the child “chilly”. Menyanthes 200 was given, still no effect. The mother came to me one day and asked me the reason of his sons forehead also being very cold and sweaty at the same time. Of course, I gave her no reason, but handed her ever 3 powders of Veratrum Album 6. The child got well from the next day and had no relapse uptil now-3 years since.
