Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Croton Tiglium in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Have you ever used Croton Tiglium? Yes No
Stool yellow, watery, coming out like a shot, all at once; worse after least food or drink.
Excruciating pain, running from nipple to scapula; of same side when child nurses.
Eczema, especially of the scrotum; itches intensely, but is so sensitive to touch and sore that he cannot scratch.
When the Allopaths, in any case where they considered an operation of the bowels imperative, had exhausted all other resources, Croton tiglium was their "biggest Gun Powder gun for the last broadside." In other words, this is a most violent cathartic. Now if Similia, etc., is not true, Croton tig. ought utterly to fail to cure diarrhoea; but it is true, and notwithstanding Croton Tiglium has proven its truth over and over again the Allopaths deny and reject Homoeopathy. As in Podophyllum Peltatum Podophyllum and Aloe Socotrina Aloe, Croton tig. cures its kind and no other. Croton Tiglium's guiding symptoms are.
First "Yellow watery stool."
Second "Sudden expulsion, coming out like a shot, all at once."
Third "Aggravation from the least food or drink."
In this combination Croton tig. leads all of the remedies. The first symptom is found notably under Apis Mel Apis mel., Calc Carb Calcarea ost., China China, Gratiola Officinalis Gratiola, Hyoscyamus Niger Hyoscyamus, Natrum Sulphuricum Natrum sulph., and Thuja Thuja. The second under Jatropha, Gratiola Officinalis Gratiola, Podophyllum Peltatum Podophyllum and Thuja Thuja. The third under Argentum Nitricum Argentum nit. and Arsenicum Album Arsenicum alb. The Calc Carb Calcarea ost. is found in the Calc Carb Calcarea temperament and China China in cases weakened by loss of fluids, and all the others have strongly marked symptoms which distinguish them from Croton tiglium. For want of space we cannot give them here. Aloe Socotrina Aloe has rumbling before the stool, while Croton tig. has washing in the intestines as from water. Both of these remedies having aggravation after eating or drinking, we would have to look further for the symptoms deciding between them. Another symptom that has frequently been verified in Croton Tiglium is -"Excruciating pain running from nipple to back (scapula) of the same side when the child nurses." I have cured bad cases of mastitis guided by this one symptom. Croton tig. cures eczema especially of the scrotum, where the eruption itches intensely, but is so sensitive and sore to touch that he cannot scratch. This comprehends the main uses of this valuable remedy.
