Cascarilla Fever Symptoms

Allen gives the therapeutic indications of the remedy Cascarilla in different kinds of fevers like: Continued, Bilious, Intermittent, Malarial, Remittent, Pernicious, Typhoid, Typhus, Septic fever, etc…


Characteristic – Complaints from loss of blood or vital fluids (Carbo vegetabilis, Causticum, Cinchona, Phosphorus).

The concussion of every step is painfully felt in region of stomach (Bryonia).

Chill: With thirst for warm drinks (Ced., Sabad. – for warm drinks in prodrome, Eup.), slight when walking in the open air, which immediately disappeared on standing still, but returned after walking again.

Heat: With thirst and desire for warm drinks (Ced., Eup- purp.), anxious of the whole body, and a slight sweat followed by sleepiness.

Sweat: Slight, on the back, when walking in the open air. Profuse at night, drenching the clothes, but not debilitating.

“Cannot drink anything but hot drinks during fever.” – A.O. Hardenstein.

The thirst and desire for warm drinks is as marked as under Cedron, and both remedies have proved very efficacious in the treatment of intermittents occurring in the lower Mississippi valley. The late Dr. Hardenstein, of Vicksburg, relied upon Cascarilla when he found this symptom present, and says it rarely failed to cure.
