Ooph > general
On the analogy of the action of Thyroidin in myxoedema, Ooph. has been used with much success in cases of suffering following excision of the ovaries, and for the climacteric sufferings of women. I have had good results with it in such cases in the lower triturations. It has been suggested as a remedy in ovarian cysts. E. Saalfeld (quoted H. W., xxxii. 296), in view of Landau's observations on the effect of Ooph. on the nervous sufferings of women at the climacteric, gave Ooph. to women suffering from acne rosacea and other skin disorders of the climacteric. A woman, 20, after double oophorectomy had lichen-like eczema. This was greatly relieved by Ooph. as well as the accompanying nervous symptoms and adiposity. He obtained good results also in some non-climacteric cases as ($51$) Acne and seborrhoea in chlorotic women. (2) A case of prurigo which had lasted from childhood in a woman of 26. In this case the itching was amel. for a short time after the period. This amel. during menses may prove a keynote, and relates the remedy to Zinc.

Tab > mouth
In December, 1856, after having, perhaps, for some time, smoked more than usual, I perceived in my mouth a disagreeable taste, like that of rancid oil, which lasted for eight days, ceasing only during a meal, and returning an hour after, in spite of all efforts to remove or disguise it. At the end of a few weeks, a yellowish spot appeared on the edge of the tongue. This spot, which at first was the size of a half-dime, looked exactly as if a piece of dried lichen had been planted there. It seemed as though I could detect, by sucking at it, that here was the immediate cause of the bad taste in my mouth. It grew a little larger by slow degrees. Soon another similar spot appeared on the arches of the palate,

Cub > skin
A "flush of red" over whole body (third day). A decided eruption appeared (fourth day). Covered with an eruption from head to foot, which, in some parts, could not have been distinguished from urticaria febrilis, while in others it had more the appearance of lichen in its papular stage, but with more intense inflammation around the base of the papulae than is commonly seen in that disease (fifth day),

but, as the relief proved only temporary whilst the operation seemed greatly to increase rather than diminish the irritation, by producing a greater abundance of the eruption and increased redness of the skin, she was, therefore, afraid to indulge in it. When I saw her there was no eruption on the face, but it was slightly swollen, and exhibited merely patches of efflorescence or redness, without any thickening or elevation of the cuticle. On the forearm and hands the eruption, when examined, appeared to be of a mixed character, lichen and urticaria combined.
