Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Benzoic Acid. in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.



Vesical catarrh, (G. Bird.)

Irritability of the bladder. Too frequent desire to evacuate the bladder, the urine normal in appearance,

Gleet, (Honigberger).

Urine at first increased in quantity only, and not in frequency. In a few days urination became exceedingly frequent, with strong pressing and discharge of a clear urine. Urine of an aromatic odor and saline taste, the odor long retained; most in the forenoon,

Urine more copious, somewhat turbid, otherwise of a natural color and odor. After the daily use of a drachm after dinner, no Benzoic acid was found in the urine, traces of urea, and only mere traces of Hippuric acid,

Enuresis nocturna of children, where Nitrum failed, (Young.)

Decrease of the quantity of urine,

Urine aromatic,

Fetid urine, with prolapsus uteri. (C. Hg.)

Thick urine,

Bloody urine,

Hot, scalding urine, of a deep-red color, and strong odor, causing so much suffering in its passage that this was performed but once a day,

Morbid condition of the urine, as in persons with calculus or gouty diathesis, (Ure), with concretions of urate of ammonia, (Neidhard.)

Urine highly colored, sometimes of the color of brandy; the urinous odor exceedingly strong,

Urine of the above character, of a specific gravity greater than that of healthy urine; passed into the same vessel, it retains its place below the healthy urine without admixture, and, though of a very deep-red color, deposits no sediment,

A granular kind of mucus, mixed with phosphates, in the sediment of the urine, (Garrod.)

Affords no relief where there are phosphates in the sediment. (G. Bird.)

After thirty-two grains of pure Benzoic acid, taken in the evening before going to sleep, the morning urine reacted uncommonly acid, even after being evaporated, and standing twelve hours, whereupon only the usual sediment of earthy salts presented itself. The Uric acid and urea were both contained therein, apparently in normal quantity,

A scruple, taken an hour after a meal, was followed, in some hours, by five or six ounces of urine; on adding Hydrochloric acid to this an abundant precipitate of Hippuric acid appeared, but no trace of Uric acid. (Ure.)

One of the few acids which manifestly increase the acidity of the urine. (Lehmann.)

Increases the acid of the urine and makes it slightly irritant. (Garrod.)

Not the uric acid but the urea disappears. (Garrod.)

In cases with an excess of uric acid in the urine, the urine becomes normal after the use of Benzoic acid, (G. Bird.)

Never saw anything so effectual; the urine was clear after the first dose, and in two days was entirely free from mucous deposits; the irritability of the bladder was diminished, and in four days the patient could be left to himself, (Soden.)


A thrilling, almost painful sensation on the left side of the glans penis, extending into the urethra, so severe as to occasion starting, ending in a sensation of tickling and itching,


Smarting of the fraenum praeputii,

Itching on the glans,


Menstruation too early,

Retarded menstruation,

Weakness after the menses,

Too long-lasting lochia,



Painfulness of the genitals,

Pressure at the genitals.

Raw pain of the genitals,

Itching in the sulcus behind the corona glandis,
