VERBASCUM

(verb)

Verbascum is to be thought of as a remedy for catarrhs or colds, when they are associated with neuralgia of the face which appears quite periodically, generally twice a day, the same hour in the morning and afternoon of each day. There is considerable coryza and lachrymation.

Verbascum has a peculiar cough which is decidedly a cough of the larynx and trachea, a cough that could not occur other than from disease in a hard' unyielding tube, as the larynx and trachea. The cough is hard, harsh and barking and is associated with hoarseness, the voice itself being deep and hard, "a sort of BASSO PROFUNDO." It bears some resemblance to DROSERA, SPONGIA and SULPHUR.
