HPUS label indication: Better motion
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while the very dilute homeopathic remedy may help, the raw product is often best avoided.

Below are the strongest indications of Rhus Tox based on traditional homeopathic usage. Indications have not been reviewed by the FDA. If symptoms persist always consult a medical professional.

The effects on the skin, rheumatic pains, mucous membrane affections, and a typhoid type of fever, make this remedy frequently indicated. Rhus Toxicodendron affects fibrous tissue markedly - joints, tendons, sheaths - aponeurosis, etc., producing pains and stiffness. Post-operative complications. Tearing asunder pains. Motion always "limbers up" the Rhus patient, and hence he feels better for a time from a change of position. Ailments from strains, overlifting, getting wet while perspiring. Septic conditions. Cellulitis and infections, carbuncles in early stages ( Echinac.) Rheumatism in the cold season. Septicaemia.
BETTER, warm, dry weather, motion; walking, change of position, rubbing, warm applications, from stretching out limbs.
WORSE, during sleep, cold, wet rainy weather and after rain; at night, During rest, drenching, when lying on back or right side.
