Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of X-ray in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Reappearance of an old, slight, pimply eruption on left side of forehead.
Return of a slight eruption on outside of lower legs, burning when scratched, worse after scratching.
August 28, I took a dose of a few globules of X-ray 45m. for some urinary trouble, which better without being removed.
September 13, I felt a stinging and smarting on a place behind the left hip joint while sitting at the dinner table.
In the course of the afternoon this symptom disappeared and reappeared on the right side, precisely corresponding to the place on the left side.
Toward evening it burned like fire, and, on examination, a place as large as a Argentum Metallicum silver dollar on the right buttock was red and tough as if the skin were abraded.
On going to bed a blister as large as a hickory nut, not unlike a fish bladder, was present, from which smaller blisters extended down in a curve.
The redness and roughness was enlarged to about three inches in diameter.
On being quiet there was no pain, but on the least motion or friction, the part burned like fire, or a severe burn.
In the night the blister opened, and another had come opposite to the first, as large as a chestnut.
The pains on motion, touch, or friction, continued like a real burn.
The skin was red, rough and inflamed, like raw meat, for four inches down, with small blisters of different size extending downward.
The large blister discharged gradually, and a scab formed, which, under cessation of pain, fell off, so that by the end of September the skin was as sound as before.
X-ray reminds me of a similar experience observed from repeated action of the X-ray upon the skin, resulting in a denudation of the tibia for the space of about six inches, as far as the leg was exposed to the rays, because it would not heal from an ulcer consequent upon an injury.
"On the red erythematous surface elevations begin to appear, of different sizes and which may be acuminate or papular.
In the early stage they are barely visible, and resemble ordinary congestion papules.
If, however, their surface is scratched with a needle, a yellow serous slightly opaque fluid exudes and the papule disappears.
These elevations, though of small size, are in reality vesicles.
They occur in groups or disseminated over the surface, and ultimately develop into vesico-bulle, or vesico-pustules which have the appearance of an ordinary eruption."
"In a weeping eczema the exudation disappears after one to four exposures, and does not return."
"In pruriginous eczema the itching often ceases after a single application."
"On dry eczema the effect of the rays is most marked."
A single application is frequently sufficient.
"It is in the more obstinate, chronic, and recurring types that they are the most useful."
To quote now from Dr. Hall-Edwards "The disease generally makes its first appearance in the form of a mild erythema around the roots of the nails.
The nails begin to thicken and their substance to degenerate, until they become shapeless masses.
The skin becomes uniformly red, and later small watery growths appear.
These gradually increase in size and number, whilst the skin generally becomes dry and wrinkled.
At this stage, apart from the disfigurement, the patient suffers no inconvenience.
The watery growths continue to increase in size, and the skin loses its elasticity to such an extent that it cracks with the slightest exertion.
These cracks are very painful and difficult to heal.
Pain of an almost indescribable character, which appears to come from the bones, and which is worse by holding the hands downwards, is felt.
Loss of power in the arm muscles is also experienced.
At this stage the skin between the warty growths exhibits marked telangiectasis, is considerably thickened, and is tied down to the subjacent tissues.
There is an ever-present sensation of burning and extreme itching, so that it requires no small amount of self-control to keep from scratching.
The bases of some of the larger warts become inflamed, and the thickened mass may come away, leaving an ulcer which takes months to heal.
These ulcers are so tender and painful that words fail to convey any idea of the suffering of the patient.
They occasionally refuse to heal, become gradually larger, and may assume malignant characteristics, which demand operative interference."
Dr. J. T. Pitkin, in a paper read before the "American Roentgen Ray Society", in 1903, thus graphically describes the sufferings of this terrible disease "For a description of the pain and suffering, hyperaesthesia and paresthesia, no language, sacred or profane, is adequate.
