This agent when freshly dug causes upon mastication an intensely acrid impression upon the tongue, lips and fauces, a though the parts had been severely scalded; this is followed by a slight inflammation and tenderness, and aphthous ulceration. It acts upon the salivary glands, causing congestion and salivation, and is an expectorant and diaphoretic.
This remedy is indicated in conditions in which there is a thin, excoriating discharge from the nose, which is sore and excoriated. It is of service in cases of SCARLET FEVER when thee is a thin, ichorous, burning fluid from the nose that excoriates the nose and lips. The patient may be delirious, must breathe with the mouth open, an is constantly picking the nose until it bleeds.
It should be remembered in cases of DIPHTHERIA when the mouth and fauces are covered with a deposit. Ulcers ar to be seen at different points. The secretions are acrid and excoriating; the glands of the neck are swollen and painful. It relieves cases of STOMATITIS where there are burning pains, excessive salivation, the mucous surfaces raw and sore, the tongue is red, like a beet, and the papillae are prominent. It has been employed in sore throat of public speakers, who speak improperly, and as a result suffer from hoarseness, pain in the larynx, and an excessive accumulation of mucus in the throat.
