“Threatening pyemia; blood poisoning, with debilitating sweats. Enlarged scrofulous glands. Eruptions and ulcerations in syphilitic patients. Enlarged mesenteric glands, with diarrhoea and cholera infantum.
“Scrofulous ophthalmia and tendency to ulcerations of lower lid. Parenchymatous keratitis.
“Otitis, with fetid corrosive discharge. Catarrhal inflammations of the throat, nose and middle ear; swelling of the tissues within the nose; hypertrophied condition of the opening of the Eustachian tube and increasing deafness, chronic irritability of the middle ear following scarlet fever; thickening of tympanum.
“Dryness of nose, coryzas, burning, acid. Hay Fever. Catarrh, burning sensations, tubercular diathesis.
“Epithelioma in mouth.
“Later stage of diphtheria with evidence of putrefactive degeneration. Diphtheritic croup.
“Leucorrhoea, bloody, yellow, with hard swelling o the labia, followed by induration in the axilla, mammary abscess, mammary tumor, with retracted nipple, sensitive.
“Pulmonary tuberculosis, with cavities in lungs, hectic fever, etc. Chronic pneumonia, with abscess in the lung, hectic fever. Acute catarrhal pneumonia, with caseous degeneration and fibrosis. Fibroid degeneration of the lung, with inflammation and haemorrhage, commencing cavity. In general many cases of pulmonary disease, pneumonia, subacute and chronic, and various forms of phthisis pulmonaris have been cured, the special indications being great debility, night sweats either after cavity is formed or when a cavity threatens to form, with a decidedly cachectic condition of the patient.
It seems probable that in the iodide of arsenic we have found a remedy most closely allied to manifestations of tuberculosis; it will be indicated by a profound prostration, rapid, irritable pulse, recurring fever and sweats, emaciation, tendency to diarrhea, etc. It is especially valuable in nontubercular phthisis.
“A number of cases of weakness of the heart have been reported as relieved, and it undoubtedly acts similarly to arsenic in such cases; unfortunately nearly all the cases have been treated with a combination of other drugs with this one, so that perhaps as much credit should be given to the other drugs as to the arsenicum iodatum.
“Eczema of the beard, watery oozing, great itching, aggravated by washing.
“Night sweats of phthisis and of many other debilitating diseases.”.
“Tendency to great depression of the vital forces. In low types of scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhoid fever, with carphology, especially boring into the nose and picking the lips until they bleed. Delirium in scarlet fever, with boring in the nose.
“Violent coryzas, fluent, acrid, ichorous, nostrils very sore, with constant desire to bore into the nose and to pick it. Nose completely stopped with fluent acrid discharge. In any fever, with terrific pain over root of nose; nose and throat feel raw. In scarlet fever and in diphtheria the nose becomes ulcerated with an offensive excoriating discharge; the patient is constantly working at the nose.
“lips chapped and burning; the patient constantly picks at the lips until they bleed; the corners cracked, bloody. With this submaxillary glands are often swollen, the tongue red and the whole mouth raw.
“Throat raw. Occasionally useful in diphtheria with the characteristic nose and lips. Sore throat from speaking. Sore throat, with lay fever, violent coryza, rawness and soreness, constant hawking.
“Laryngitis, with great hoarseness, the result of talking; hawking and clearing the voice”.
