HPUS label indication: Cough

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

Is characterized by pains, numerous and varied, neither fixed nor constant anywhere. Cough caused by an incessant tickling in the throat-pit, which tickling runs down to the bifurcation of the bronchial tubes. Touching the throat-pit brings on the cough. Worse from the least cold air; so that all cough ceases by covering up all the body and head with the bedclothes. Rumex diminishes the secretions of mucous membranes, and at the same time exalts sensibility of the mucous membranes of the larynx and trachea. Its action upon the skin is marked, producing an intense itching. Lymphatics enlarged and secretions perverted.
Worse, in evening, from inhaling cold air; left chest; uncovering.
Compare: Caust.; Sulph.; Bell.; Rumex contains chrysophanic acid to which the skin stitches correspond. Rumex Acetosa - Sheep Sorrel - (Gathered in June and dried, used locally for Epithelioma of face ( Cowperthwaite.) Dry, unremitting short cough, and violent pains in the bowels; uvula elongated; inflammation of oesophagus; also cancer); Rumex Obtusifolius - Lapathum - Broad-leaf dock - (nosebleed and headache following; pain in kidneys; leucorrhoea).
Third to sixth potency.

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.
