Ferrum phos [Ferr-p]
First stage of cold in the head, with circulatory disturbances, catarrhal fever, congestion of nasal mucous membranes. Smarting in nasal passages, worse inspiration; excellent for a predisposition to take cold, alternately with Calcarea phos. “Ferrum phos. 3x in pharyngeal catarrh, with characteristic white, frothy expectoration, has never disappointed me.” (W.R. King.) “For incipient colds it is worth its weight in gold.” (Dr. J. P. Lambert.) Small bleeding ulcers in the nose will be frequently cured by this remedy.
Kali mur [Kali-m]
Catarrh when there is white phlegm, thick, not transparent. Dry coryza. Stuffy cold in the head, with a whitish-gray tongue. Adherent crusts in the vault of the pharynx. “I use it often with profit in the purulent stage of acute nasal catarrh. Kali mur. has proved to me the most satisfactory remedy in acute inflammations of the naso-pharynx in which there is a decided burning dryness. The appearance is that of redness with marked thickening, almost as though the mucous membrane were solidly infiltrated.” (Ivins.). Hawking of mucus from posterior nares. Syphilitic ozaena. Chronic rhinitis and catarrh with closure of the Eustachian tubes, secretions are thick and tenacious, may be opaque, white or yellowish green scabs may form in vault of pharynx.
Calcarea fluor [Calc-f]
Catarrh with expectoration of yellowish, small lumps. Dry coryza. Stuffy cold in the head (alternately with Kali mur.), with ineffectual desire to sneeze. Ozaena. Osseous growths and diseases of nasal bones, with offensive odor of dead bone.
Natrum mur [Nat-m]
Catarrhs and colds with watery, transparent, frothy discharges. Chronic catarrhs of bloodless patients. The mucus has sometimes a salty taste. Cold causing vesicular eruptions with watery contents, which burst and leave thin crusts or scabs. Coryza, “running cold,” with watery, clear, frothy discharge, worse on going into the cold and on exertion. Influenza. Epistaxis from stooping and from coughing. Posterior nares dry. Loss of sense of smell. Dr. Geo. Herring finds the 1 trit. almost infallible for stopping a cold commencing with sneezing. We have done the same thing frequently with the 30th. Sneezing worse undressing at night and in morning. Fever blisters. Frontal sinus inflammation.
Kali sulph [Kali-s]
Yellow, slimy secretions, or expectoration of watery matter, are conditions calling for this remedy. Patient feels generally worse in the evening or in a heated room. Yellow or yellowish discharge from the nose. Colds with dry skin when perspiration does not set in freely under use of Ferrum phos. Engorgement of the nasal-pharyngeal mucous membrane, snoring, mouth-breathing, etc.
Calcarea phos [Calc-p]
Chronic catarrhs and colds in adynamic persons (as an intercurrent remedy). Colds in the head with an albuminous discharge from nose. Sneezing and sore nostrils. Dr. L. A. Bull says: “I frequently began the treatment of chronic catarrhal conditions of the air-passages with Calcarea phos. I find that it has quite a decided tonic action, and influences the conditions of the membranes for good. In many places it quite takes place of the Cinchona preparations.” Large pedunculated nasal polypi. Point of nose icy-cold. Swollen, ulcerated in scrofulous children. Adenoids in the naso-pharynx.
Calcarea sulph [Calc-s]

Natrum sulph [Nat-s]
Nosebleed during menses. Ozaena syphilitica, worse every change from dry to wet weather. Catarrhs of mucous membranes in general, characterized by a tendency to profuse secretion of greenish mucus. This is the tissue remedy for la grippe, since the disease is caused by an excess of water in the cellular fluids.
Kali phos [Kali-p]
Ozaena, foul, offensive discharge from nose, foul breath, and where secondary nervous troubles arise. Epistaxis and predisposition to same. Yellow crusts blown from nose. Thick, yellow discharge; sneezes from slightest exposure. Thick mucus hawked from posterior nares.
