Theresa Sch. in Gl., a girl 18 years of age (whom I did not see), scalded her foot and leg with boiling water, three days ago, and had first treated the parts burned with domestic remedies, and then with Unguentum Basil, and thereby had so much aggravated the burn that she could not rest day or night for the burning and formication in it.
Feb. 3, 1852. 1, 2 , Arsenic., 2, Canthar. 200, 4 §. One powder every other evening, the foot to be kept dry.
Only on Feb. 21, I received the report, that the burn had healed up in a week, but that she now had an eruption on the face, and here and there pustules with matter, and that her skin in general was unhealthy.
1, Caustic. 200, 2-4 §, one powder every third evening.
This also improved quickly and she remained quite well, until Sept. 17th, 1853, when her suppressed menses caused an aberration of mind, with restlessness, anguish, and a tendency to suicide.
This also was cured in a few days by one dose of Pulsatilla 200, and a dose of Sulphur 200.
