Affections caused by taking cold when the air changes suddenly from dry and warm to wet and cold.

Tongue and jaws become lame, if cold air or water chills them; neck stiff, back painful, loins lame, after taking cold.

Colic as if diarrhoea would occur, from taking cold.

Yellow watery diarrhoea with cutting colic before every stool, or dysentery from taking cold.

Most catarrhal states, with secretion of much mucus, caused by exposure to damp cold.

Dropsical swelling after suppressed sweat, or paralysis and other troubles from suppressed eruptions, after taking cold.

Modalities worse from wet, cold weather after warm, dry; at nights and when at rest; better rising from a seat; motion; warmth in general and dry weather.

Glands; swell and hypertrophy on repeated exposures to cold, damp air, also acute and chronic tonsilitis.

Dulcamara, like many others, finds its chief characteristic in its modality. "Complaints caused or aggravated by change of weather from warm to cold." Of course all kinds of inflammatory and rheumatic diseases may spring from such a cause and so Dulcamara comes to be indicated in a long list of them. For instance After taking cold the neck gets stiff, back painful, and limbs lame, or the throat gets sore and quinsy results, with stiff tongue and jaws.. We see here a resemblance to Baryta Carb Baryta carb., and indeed the two remedies complement each other nicely. If we had present in a sore throat the above mentioned stiffness and lameness, Dulcamara would be preferred. This cold in throat may travel downward and invade the bronchi and lungs, and cough and bloody expectoration result. It is especially apt to occur in children or old people this way, and then there is apt to be much mucous secretion, hard to raise, with threatened paralysis of the vagi. Here it again resembles Baryta Carb Baryta carb. It also resembles it in the tendency to get these colds. Asthma humidum, loose cough and rattling of mucus is another affection, and the choice here may lie between Dulcamara and Natrum Sulphuricum Natrum sulphuricum, which is another wet cold weather remedy. Colic and diarrhoea, from cold exposure, are often quickly relieved by Dulcamara, especially if taking place in hot weather, when the days or nights become suddenly cold.
