Nursing Sore Mouth
Category: DISEASES OF FEMALES
Source: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art
Sore mouth of nursing women, as the name of the disease indicates, is
peculiar to women who are suckling children. It is an inflammation of
the mouth, tongue and fauces, which sometimes comes on during pregnancy,
several months or but a few days before the birth of the child. It
generally, however, makes its first appearance when the child is a few
weeks old, and sometimes not till after the lapse of several months. In
some cases the tongue and inside of the mouth ulcerate, and the
irritation extends to the stomach and bowels, producing distressing and
dangerous inflammation of these parts, with severe and obstinate
For the sore mouth, before diarrhoea begins, give _Eupatorium Aro._
and _Hydrastin_, in alternation, a dose once in three hours, and wash
the mouth with the same, each time. After the diarrhoea occurs, use
_Podophyllin_ with the other medicines, giving them in rotation, three
hours apart. It is best to give a dose of _Podophyllin_ night and
I have treated very bad cases of this disease that had been running for
more than a year, and been treated with the ordinary remedies directed
in the Homoeopathic authorities without any permanent benefit, curing
them perfectly in ten days with _Podophyllin_ and _Leptandrin_, giving
them in alternation at the 1st attenuation in half grain doses, at
intervals of from four to eight hours according to the frequency of the
evacuations. These two remedies are almost certain to arrest _Chronic
Dysentery_ where there is ulceration of the lower portion of the rectum,
a peculiar distress felt at the stomach just before stool, with _sudden_
rush of the evacuations and inability to control the inclination even
for a few minutes, with a feeling of faintness after the stool.
_Leptandrin_ is the specific for the Dysentery that often succeeds
cholera, and these two, _Pod._ and _Lept._, are almost certain to
relieve the "Mexican Diarrhoea," as well as that connected with the
fevers along the Mississippi river.
