HPUS label indication: Fever

Below are the strongest indications of Pyrogenium in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

This remedy was introduced by English Homeopathists, prepared from decomposed lean beef allowed to stand in the sun for two weeks and then potentised. The provings and most of the clinical experience have been obtained from this preparation. But, subsequently, Dr. Swan potentised some septic pus, which preparation has also been proved and clinically applied. There does not seem to be any marked difference in their effects.
Pyrogenium is the great remedy for Septic states, with intense restlessness. “In septic fevers, especially puerperal, Pyrogen has demonstrated its great value as a homeopathic dynamic antiseptic.” (H. C. Allen.) Hectic, typhoid, typhus, ptomaine poisoning, diphtheria, dissecting wounds, sewer-gas poisoning, chronic malaria, after-effects of miscarriage, all these conditions at times may present symptoms calling for this unique medicine. All discharges are horribly offensive - menstrual, lochial, diarrhoea, vomit, sweat, breath, etc. Great pain and violent burning in abscesses. Chronic complaints that date back to septic conditions. Threatening heart failure in zymotic and septic fevers. Influenza, typhoid symptoms.
Relief from motion.
Compare: Streptoccin (anti-febrile action; septic symptoms in infectious diseases). Rapid in its action, especially in its effect on temperature); Staphloccin in diseases where the staphylococcal is the chief bacterial factor, as acne, abscess, furuncle; empyema, endocarditis, etc.); Sepin - a toxin of Proteus vulgaris, prepared by Dr. Shedd, same symptoms as Pyrogenium, of which it is the main constituent; Echinacea; Carbo; Ars.; Lach.; Rhus; Bapt.
Complementary: Bryon.

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while the very dilute homeopathic remedy may help, the raw product is often best avoided.
