Homeopathic Materia Medica by Nash
(tarent-c)Or the hairy spider. It is one of the most efficacious remedies for boils, abscesses, felons, or swellings of any kind, where the tissues put on a BLUISH COLOR, and there are INTENSE BURNING PAINS. We used to think we had two great remedies in ARSENICUM and ANTHRACINUM for these swellings; but TARANTULA CUBENSIS is simply wonderful. I have seen felons which had kept patients awake night after night walking the floor in agony from the terrible pains so relieved in a very short time that they could sleep in perfect comfort until the swellings spontaneously discharged, and progressed TO a rapid cure. This remedy should receive a thorough proving. It is a gem.
