Comments

Irritability, headaches and other troubles following or worse by seminal emissions. The headaches are accompanied by profound melancholy and may be caused by indulgence in alcoholics or in tea, by hot weather, by over-study and they are worse by strong odors, as of musk, roses, etc. The headaches may be periodical and are frequently located above the left eye.

Scrofulous and incipient tubercular laryngitis have been cured with Sel. The parallelism with Sulphur is seen all through the pathogenesis of Sel. and perhaps more especially in the skin.

Among the peculiar symptoms of Sel. are: Very forgetful in business, but during sleep dreams of what he had forgotten. Coryza ending in diarrhea. Hungry at night, longing for spirituous liquors, an almost irresistible maniacal desire. Sensation as if a biting drop were forcing its way out of the urethra.
