ARUM TRIPHYLLUM

(arum-t)

INDIAN TURNIP ARACEAE

Coryza; ACRID, FLUENT; NOSTRILS RAW.

Nose feels stopped up in spite of the watery discharge (compare, Am. c, Samb., Sinap.) ; sneezing < at night. Acrid, ichorous discharge, excoriating inside of nose, alae, and upper lip (Ars., Cepa).

Constant picking at the nose until it bleeds; boring with the finger into the side of the nose.

Pick lips until they bleed; corners of mouth sore, cracked, bleeding (with malignant tendency, Cund.); bites nails until fingers bleed.

Patients pick and bore into THE RAW BLEEDING SURFACES though very painful; scream with pain but keep up the boring (in diphtheria, scarlatina, typhoid).

Children refuse food and drink on account of soreness of mouth and throat (Mer.) ; are sleepless.

Saliva profuse, acrid, corrodes the mucous membrane; tongue and buccal cavity raw and bleeding.

Aphonia: complete, after exposure to northwest winds (Acon., Hep.); from singing (Arg. n., Caust., Phos., Sel.).

Clergyman's sore throat; voice hoarse, uncertain, uncontrollable, changing continually; worse from talking, speaking or singing; orators, singers, actors.

Desquamation in large flakes, a second or third time, in scarlatina.

Typhoid scarlatina, with apathy, scanty or suppressed urine; threatened uraemia.

The sore mouth and nose are guiding in malignant scarlatina and diphtheria.

 

Relations
Useful: after Hep. and Nit. ac. in dry, hoarse, croupy cough; after Caust. and Hep. in morning hoarseness and deafness, and in scarlatina.

Should not be given low or repeated often, as bad effects often follow.

The higher potencies most prompt and effective.
