Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while very dilute Phenacetinum may help, unprocessed Phenacetinum may be best avoided.
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Phenacetinum in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
Phenacet. belongs to the Aniline group, and was introduced into old-school practice as a remedy in febrile states and neuralgias, free from the dangers of Antfeb., Antipyr., Exalg., &c. Though not so dangerous as these, it is not free from ill effects. These have been well summed up by F. G. Oehme (H. R., xv. 506), and I have put them in Schema form, and added a symptom observed by myself on a young lady who had taken Phenacet. for headaches A circumscribed rash on both cheeks which came out red, lasted four days and then peeled, and as soon as it was clear the process was repeated. I tried many remedies with varying success, but it finally disappeared under Alm. 30, one powder at bedtime. SYMPTOMS.
