TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
If an abscess forms and fails to point and surrounding tissues present in a purplish hue, LACHESIS is called forth.
Dr. Farrington, M.D.
I have used LACHESIS in a number of cases of Gangrene following wounds and have never been disappointed in its results.
In a carbuncle and cancer, we think of LACHESIS when the surrounding area is swollen and purple or blackish and the pus forms very slowly. LACHESIS given under these circumstances increases the quantity and improves the quality of the pus and the patient’s strength improves.
Dr. Farrington, M.D.
Hale says: ‘Suitable for the worst forms of malignant erysipelas and for which we have usually used LACHESIS AND ARSENICUM.
Dr. C.K. Roberts.
Consider LACHESIS in flooding at the climacteric. Also AURUM in pre-cancerous flowing.
Dr. Burnett. M.D.
In the newborn, after a hard labor, when there is the probability that some degree of cerebral hemorrhage is present, even though it does not produce local symptoms, LACHESIS 30 three times daily for a few days will serve to clear up the blood clot.
Dr. Robert L. Wood, M.D.
Great relief from expectoration of watery phlegm; this symptom is a neglected characteristic of LACHESIS in asthma.
Dr. Farrington, M.D.
