ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN FEBRUARY ISSUE
Under what remedies does the symptom “sucking the thumb” come?
– Generally I have found Calc. phos. very efficacious. Cham., Ceonanthus, Merc. sol. and Sulph. are also useful in many cases according to the symptoms. There are a dozen cases on record where Nat. mur. and Sil. have proved useful. With a few hydrogenoid babies Nat. sulph. has helped. With children under three I always first try Calc. phos. because I have generally observed gastric derangement.- G.S.VARMA.

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS IN JUNE ISSUE.
What remedy or remedies are needed to counteract the effect of plague inoculation?.
Where can the provings of Pestinum or Plaguinum be found?.
For counteraction of the effect of plague inoculation I would first consider Carbo veg. as being the most similar to many cases of the plague. In antidoting the action of sera we should choose a remedy having an effect similar to the disease against which it has been given as a protective, choosing the nearest similar from the vegetable kingdom, never from the animal.
The only reference I can find to Pestinum or Plaguinum is in Clarkes Dictionary of Materia Medica, and this is only a short reference, I can find no record of provings.- H.A.ROBERTS.
