Creating Waves of Awareness

Pointers are some times very much helpful in day to day practice.

Kindly provide pointers on various subjects  from your knowledge & experiences .


Some pointers on itches is here.




It is esp. useful when the Itch has been suppressed by  ointments
of Mercury or Sulphur.


It   is  indicated  when  pustulous  and   eczematous   eruptions
complicate the case.

Oil of Lavender

It is used as a local application, which will kill both the  eggs
and  the fully-developed insects (Sarcoptis Homines-which  causes
the Itch), without suppressing the disease. It should be  applied
after  thoroughly washing the parts in warm water with  soap,  an
then  rubbing thoroughly with a common crash-towel. To  cure  the

disease the indicated remedy is given internally.


It is indicated for the bad effects of suppressed Itch. When Itch
has  been  suppressed, it is an excellent remedy to  develop  it;
usually it will cure the disease after its redevelopment.

     It is also useful, when pustules or boils remain after  Itch
has been cured by some other remedy.


It  is indicated after Sulphur, particularly when  constitutional
symptoms  appear.  There  are occasional  large  and  well-formed
pustules (which develop into an Impetigo), which intersperse  the
Itch vesicles.


It  is  a  valuable  remedy  in  this  affection.  The   symptoms
indicating  it are : Itching in the bends of joints  and  between
fingers as soon as the patient gets warm in bed.

The most important point in the management of itching is: breaking the tendency to scratch, because itching and scratching are closely related (itch scratch syndrome). When the indicated medicine is not responding, we should consider drugs like sulphur, mezerium, urtica urense etc.

Ammonium Carbonicum

Chronic  Bronchitis,  with copious accumulation of mucus  in  the lungs, the patient coughs continually, butraises neither at  all or  with great difficulty. Heaviness in the chest  with  burning. Drowsiness or even some delirium  with muttering may be  present. The patient is weak and sluggish in his movements.

Ammonium Mur

Heaviness  in  the chest or a feeling, as of a lump in  chest  or burning, throbbing of certain spots in the chest, which beat with the  pulse. Coldness between the shoulder-blades. Violent  cough, during which the mouth is filled with the saliva.

Balsam of Peru

An admirable remedy when there is loud rales in the chest and the expectoration is thick, creamy and yellowish-white. An  excellent remedy, even though night-sweat and hectic fever show the disease is alarmingly progressing. To be used in low potency.


Indicated when there is a sensation of heavy pressure, just under the  sternum, with great dyspnoea. The cough is dry and seems  to start  from  the  stomach, < after a meal, when  it  may  end  in vomiting;  bursting  pain in the head with every  cough  [Phos.]; during the cough, the patient presses his hand against his  side, to relieve the stitching pain. Useful also when Bronchitis is associated with Measles.


Chronic Bronchitis, with very offensive breath during the  cough, though ordinary expiration is not offensive [Sang. Can.].

Carbo Animalis

Indicated  in  the later stage. The  distinguishing  symptom  is: Suffocative  hoarse  cough, producing shaking in  the  brain,  as though  the  brain  is loose in the head;  the  expectoration  is green, purulent  and horribly offensive. There is a cold  feeling
in the chest [Brom., Camph., Paris Q.].As soon as he closes his eyes, he feels as if he were smothering.

Carbo Vegetabilis

Indicated  in the later stage, particularly in Bronchitis of  old people, when there is a decided burning in the chest and a  great deal of rattling. The cough is spasmodic and the expectoration is profuse-it is yellow and very foetid. Dyspnoea, < on turning over in bed and on dropping off to sleep.


Violent  attack with rapid formation, first of a watery,  burning discharge, later, yellowish purulent, with great burning, rawness and other symptoms of inflammation. Used in lower potencies.


Suited to Bronchitis associated with laryngitis.

Kali Bichromicum

Indicated in Bronchitis, particularly if the glands are involved. The  cough is of hard, barking character, almost  always,<  after eating  and > when warmly wrapped up in bed, and attended with  a great deal of difficult breathing; the expectoration is generally of  a stringy or ropy character, sometimes it consists of  bluish lumps.There  is  a  great  deal  of  feeling  of  tightness  in epigastrium.

Kali Carbonicum

Indicated  in Bronchitis, when there are sharp, stitching  pains, which  are prominently located in the walls of the  chest  [Bry.-when  coughing],  characteristically in the lower  third  of  the right  lung-their most frequent site, made < by any motion;  they may  occur  all over the chest or may be erratic and  wander  all
over the chest [Ign., Kali Bich., Puls., Sul.]. The patient has a little sac filled with water, between the upper eye-lids and eye-brows.


Indicated  when  the patient suffers  from  tickling,  irritating cough  which  is esp. apt to come on as he drops  off  to  sleep, arousing him, as if he were choking. He can bear nothing to touch his larynx or throat, so that he loosens his neck-band.


Indicated  when  there is accumulation of mucus in the  chest  as indicated  by rales, rattling breathing, cough and dyspnoea,  and waving of alae nasi.

Natrum Ars

Indicated when there is a sensation of oppression in the chest, < by  inhalation of dust and smoke and > by urinating  freely,  and stuffiness,  as  if the lungs were full of smoke.  There  may  be soreness in the supra-clavicular region and pain over the 4th and 5th  costal  cartilages of the right side.  With  these  symptoms
present, it may be used, even in the graver forms of the disease.


Indicated when there are mucous rales through the chest,  panting and labored respiration, and even Emphysema. Cough,  particularly < on moving from warm room to cold air or in changes from warm to
cold, with tearing pains under the sternum, as if something  were being  torn loose; suffocative pressure in the upper part of  the chest, with intolerable pain and constriction of the larynx. Very characteristic is the sputum consisting of yellowish mucus,  with streaks  of blood running through it, although it may  be  bloody and mucous or rust-colored or purulent having a sweetish or salty taste. Stitching pain in head [Bry.]. In extreme cases, there may be tremor of the whole body.Indicated esp. in tall slender persons of rather  tubercular habit  or  tendency, rather inclined to stoop and  to  be  hollow chested.

Pix Liquida

An  excellent remedy. Indicated by the expectoration of  purulent matter, offensive in odor or taste and

accompanied  by  pain referred to the left 3rd  costal  cartilage (really in the left bronchus), which may or may not apparently go through to the back.


Cough with thick yellow expectoration or dry, tickling cough from irritation  in the trachea, < in evening or on lying  down,  with dry air-passages or a scraped, raw feeling. Occasionally there is
dyspnoea or constriction of the chest.


In  Bronchitis,  esp. chronic Bronchitis, it  is  indicated  when there  seems  to be an enormous and  persistent  accumulation  of thick   muco-pus,  with  loud  rales  all  through   the   chest, particularly in the left lung. The patient suffers from spells of suffocation,  with  palpitation of the heart. He  must  have  the
odors  and windows opened. The cough is < when he is lying  in  a horizontal position and may then be so violent as to cause nausea and  vomiting. Hoarseness, with very deep voice or aphonia, <  in
morning.The more chronic the case, the more is Sulphur indicated.
