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



The burning in the palate and throat was somewhat relieved after eating, except the persistent sensation as though the parts had been burnt with hot soup, which continued all the afternoon and even next morning.

during the next day there was a sensation of rawness, roughness, and dryness, which continued very troublesome for several days, and was especially annoying, in the morning after waking,.

Prickling on the posterior portion of the palate and at the base of the tongue.

this with a feeling of warmth gradually increased, with dryness of the tongue, that after a time amounted to a real heat and burning.

this sensation involved only the posterior portion of the palate and tongue.

the anterior portion remained normal.

at first the sensation was thought to be the effect of the Alcohol, but the burning became so violent that it seemed as though he must have chewed several pepper-seeds.

during the next hour he frequently endeavored to relieve this heat and burning by small quantities of water.

as long as the water was held in the mouth there was a slight remission of the burning, but after the water was swallowed the burning returned as violent as ever.

after another half hour, he took a cup of white coffee with relish.

after this, the symptoms became worse and more extended, and then the heat and burning involved the tip of the tongue, inside of the lips, cheeks, and gums.

at the same time there was increased transpiration of the skin, especially of the face, without previous heat,.

Great suggillation on the back of the right hand, above the index finger, without cause from pressure or blow.

together with violent itching on this hard by not on the suggillated place, especially on the wrist, so that he was obliged to rub it until it was sore (second morning),.

Eruption on the wrists, which appeared after violent itching, healed after about three weeks.

while scratching there were no distinct pimples.

and especially a persistent, oft-recurring itching on the external ear, and in the left concha. The itching often extended over the whole body.

I felt it simultaneously on back, abdomen, and scalp, impelling to scratch, and relieved by scratching. I could perceive no difference in the time of day. At times it was a burning itching, or a tickling, as from insects, on the chin, the shoulder, the clavicle, the right thorax, along the lower ribs, and the back.

also, the thumb and right middle finger. The later the itching began, the greater the inclination to scratch,.

Stool rather hard, in the morning, at short intervals, and only after sitting a long time.

immediately after eating, other pasty evacuations at short intervals, and in the evening, repeated desire as in diarrhoea, and urging, that, however, repeatedly disappeared after the emission of flatus, but at last resulted in a small stool, that was first natural and then pasty, during the evacuation of which the urging was very much increased, after which it immediately ceased,.
