Psoriasis on left leg and elbow, whitish scales, burned and itched little when scratched. Arsenicum and Arsenicum iodatum were given without effect. Kali sulph. 3x, three times a day, cured patient in four months completely. The guiding symptom was great desquamation of the epidermis. (Oscar Hansen, Copenhagen, 1898).

In another case, a great deal worse, having lasted twenty-five years, the scaly eruption, mostly on arms, relieved by hot water, entirely disappeared, but returned a year after, when the same remedy in repeated doses of the 30th, finally the 200th, brought relief. (C. Hg).

Kali mur. 12, given for gleet, the discharge having a milky appearance, produced no visible effects upon the flow, but increased very markedly the dandruff on the head, which fell in small white flakes over the coat-collar, accompanied by itching. (W.P. Wesselhoeft, M.D. From Hg).

Lady, blonde, aet. 20, fair skin ordinarily. Consulted the writer for erythema. For two days cheeks were swollen, fiery-red, and burnt like fire, no itching, eruption or roughness. One dose Ferrum phos., m.m. (Swan). In thirty minutes the burning fiery redness was gone, and there was no return, the cure being perfect. (Boardman, London Homoeopathic World, 1883).

Case which had suffered from effects of ivy poisoning (Rhus tox.) for eight months. Was formerly treated by external remedies, but has repeatedly broken out again with small, hard herpetic vesicles, forming into a thin scab, with itching and some moisture. The eruption appears in the left axilla, about the neck and on the backs of both hands. She has a sensation of faintness at stomach and befogged feeling in head, fearing to lose her reason. Very vivid dreams. Sulphur, Rhus and Sepia had no beneficial effect. Two doses of Kali sulph. 12, taken in water morning and evening for four days, cured the case in four weeks. (W.P. Wesselhoeft, M.D. From Hg).

Case presenting the following symptoms: Bald spot as large as a silver dollar on left side of the head. Hair falls out easily when combing, all over the head, also of beard. Came on after gonorrhoea a year ago, and has probably taken much potash. Lycop., Natrum mur., were of no avail during four or five months. After taking Kali sulph. 12, every third day a powder for three weeks, the hair ceased falling, and the bald spot is covered with hair. (W.P. Wesselhoeft, M.D. From Hg).

Th., aet. 15, thick crop of papules on forehead, face and both hands, red looking, itches and burns in daytime only. The spots on forehead are much worse when he takes off his hat. Not at all annoyed in the evening when warm, or at night. The entire eruption vanished in less than a fortnight under Silicea 200. (R.A. Cooper).
