Mercurius Iodatus Flavus Mercurius Iodatus Flavus (Mercurius Iodatus Flavus Proto-iodide of Mercury.)

There are sore throats that especially call for the proto-iodide

When in sore throats the inflammation and pain predominantly affect the right side, and there is a tendency to remain on the right side, or if the Merc Viv Merc state is present and the sore throat goes from right to left, it is the proto-iodide you want.

The patient that needs Mercurius Iodatus Flavus for constitutional troubles will be worse during rest and from a warm room and better in the open air.

Mercurius Iodatus Flavus is especially true when the patient needs Merc. prot in neuritis of the right arm that comes on in writers.

The arm then is very painful when writing, from passive motion, from rubbing, from pressure, from both beat and cold, but better from walking in the open! air.

Complaints are nearly all worse on the right side of the body.

Tongue coated thickly yellow at the base; tip and edges red or pale; takes the imprint of the teeth

Swelling of the throat; begins on the right side (diphtheria) (left, Lachesis Lachesis)

Genuine Hunterian chancre (l,000th clinical.)

It is a preparation that has a every reliable and prominent characteristic. It is "Tongue coated thickly, yellow at the base." The tip and edges may be red or pale and take the imprint of the teeth, like the other Mercuries. Of course, other remedies have a yellow-coated base of the tongue like Kali Bich Kali bichromicum, Natrum Phosphoricum Natrum phos. and Chelidonium Majus Chelidonium, so that this symptom would not indicate Merc Viv Mercurius Protoiodide to the exclusion of all others, but I think I am safe in saying that Mercurius Iodatus Flavus has it in the greatest degree

In diphtheria the swelling of the throat and the formation of membrane begins on the right side, like Lycopodium Lycopodium, and the foetid breath and flabby tongue, showing imprint of teeth, are generally present. Now if you have the thick yellow coating at the base of the tongue you need not hesitate to give Mercurius Iodatus Flavus. In regard to dose, I have seen good results from the 3d trituration to the C. M. potency. For myself I prefer the high, and have had abundant opportunity to test all the different potencies. If you are so prejudiced that you cannot give anything above the 12th because you cannot discover the drug with the microscope, don't give it too long; withdraw it after a few doses and give the powers of reaction a chance.

But diphtheria is not the only disease in which the yellow base of the tongue is an indication for the use of Mercurius Iodatus Flavus. Stomach and liver troubles often produce this appearance of the tongue. It is also a good remedy for Hunterian chancre, and no secondary symptoms follow its proper use. Here it must be given highp
