Homeopathy Remedies for Bromidrosis

Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Bromidrosis, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Glycerine [Glyc]

      Dr. Beneaus, a London pathologist Lancet, wrote that an application of Glycerine to the soles of the feet and toes just before putting on the socks is the best treatment for bromidrosis, or offensive foot sweat. Generally three applications relieved. Incidentally it may be added here that the constitutional treatment of the homoeopaths for this condition is Silicea 30., infrequent doses, a dozen pellets, every two days. This also applies to all offensive sweat. Hahnemann asserted that the suppression of foot sweat by external means always develops some other and worse malady.

Butyric acid [But-ac]

      This drug, Butyric acid 6. is a remedy for very offensive foot sweat, according to some latter day men.

Silicea [Sil]

      In the 30th potency, a dose once a day, Silicea has cured many cases of offensively sweating feet.

Calcarea carbonica [Calc]

      In cases where the feet are damp and cold, stockings always damp, but no pronounced bad smell, Calcarea carb. 30 has done excellent work.
