SORE THROAT

( )

Ferrum phos
Throat dry, red, inflamed, with very much pain (very frequent doses), reduces congestion, heat, fever, pain and throbbing in ulcerated sore throat, sore and inflamed palate, acute stage of laryngitis. Burning of the throat with pain. Sore throats of singers and those who use the voice daily. Tendency to evening hoarseness.

 

Kali mur
When swelling of the glands or tonsils sets in, give this and Ferrum phos. alternately. Throat ulcerated with whitish or grayish patches or spots, and the characteristic white tongue. Syphilitic sore throat; pain on swallowing. Hawks up offensive, cheesy small lumps. Professor Wertheim, of Vienna, recommended this remedy as a wash and gargle in sore mouths and throats. Granular pharyngitis. Adenoid elevations; secretion of mucus which is white and tough; also in posterior nares. Patient hawks and snuffs to get it out. In follicular pharyngitis, with tough, tenacious secretion and cough, temporarily relieved by removal, after great effort, of the clinging sputa. There is dryness, difficult and painful swallowing. We have found it more frequently useful than Kali bichromicum. (H. C. French, M. D.)

CLINICAL CASES
An actor, Mr. E., consulted me for a severe irritation in the throat that interfered much with speech, and on account of an exceedingly bad breath. This was especially disturbing, as he was obliged to appear in a role, three days later, in which proximity with his fellow actors was necessary. From an examination I concluded that it resulted from a deficiency of Kali phos., and so I ordered this remedy. On the evening of the second day Mr. E. informed me that he was fully recovered; of the foul breath there was not a trace to be perceived. He also stated that he was able to notice an improvement even after the second dose. (Dr Quesse.)
