Pulsatilla or SulphurWhat can be used to distinguish between the two constitutions Pulsatilla and Sulphur...
Some things to consider:
- when bathing does not like water on head, particularly in eyes.
- likes ice cream, popsicles, sweets, milk, cheese. Does not like eggs.
- does not like hot stuffy places like in a car with the heat on.
- removes blanket during sleep when feeling hot.

Pulsatilla doesn't have the particular sensation of discomfort, if water enters the eyes while bathing.
Pulastilla some times get head pain after ice cream.
Pulsatilla is not known to have a desire for sweets. It has an aversion and nausea after milk. However it desires cheese. It doesn't have a specific desire for eggs.
The other two symptoms doesn't contraindicate Pulsatilla.
If you have to select a medicine based on these symptoms alone, Sulphur is a better choice.
But, if I were to be in your place,I would like to see whether sulphur covers the specific complaint, for which the patient wants a medicine, before proceeding.

I would say that one of the most characteristic features of Pulsatilla is that she cries easily either from nice things that moves her or from sadness. She wants compassion and love, and is very sensitive and warm. Because of the craving for sweets as you described she tends to have a few extra pounds, but not always. People who need Pulsatilla often reacts good to Silicea as well. The reason I say `her` about Pulsatilla is because there are often women who need it. The Sulphur- type can be very creative and is often found in positions of leadership. It`s the kind of person who doesn`t care about a stain on his shirt. Sulphur can also be clean and neat but usually carry some unkempt features. Sulphur is a very good remedy for diarrhea,yeast infection and eczema among other afflictions. Besides craving for sweets, Sulphur loves fat and spicy food. Pulsatilla on the other hand isn`t that fond of fat and spicy food (even though I know alot of Pulsatillas who are). I hope you got something out of this that can help you distinguish between the two. Good luck finding the right match =)
