The symptoms of this are cramping pains in the abdomen, without fever or

looseness of the bowels. The colic sometimes occurs after the cessation

of a diarrhoea that had been induced by severe cathartics. The pains

are cutting and straining, drawing the bowels into knots, relieved

temporarily by pressure.


For a male, _Nux Vom._, and for a female, _Pulsatilla_ will generally

afford immediate relief. In children, especially, where diarrhoea

exists, _Chamomilla_ should be used. If it is the result of severe

cathartics, or if there is a soreness or a bruised feeling, _Colocynth_

is the remedy. Hot injections into the rectum, and large quantities of

warm water taken into the stomach, will often _cure colic_.
