Information about the agent

How do you recognize patients who need Psorinum?

Psorinum is characterized by itching, scratchy sensations and unpleasant-smelling discharge. The skin looks dirty and greasy, has a brownish tinge and smells unwashed. The hair is matted. It comes to eczema in skin folds and joint bends, which itch badly and become inflamed with pus. Prolonged scratching causes furuncles to form.

Throat and pharynx are dry and dusty, cough is painfully dry and accompanied by feelings of suffocation, chest feels crushed. The gums swell painfully, thick mucus sticks in the oral cavity, ulcers appear on the teeth on the right side. The tongue is coated white, dry, the ability to taste is severely restricted. It burns when swallowed.

One complains of typical tinnitus noises and biting pain in the ears with a foul-smelling discharge occurring at the same time. Puspy, crusty, and smelly rashes appear in the outer ear area. The nose is extremely dry, shows a piercing pain, and secretes a watery secretion. Inhaling through the nose seems excruciatingly painful. The eyes feel dry and scratchy, as if filled with sand.

Patients are affected by vagienal thrush with persistent discharge, itching and burning; the symptoms have a negative effect on sex life. Accompanying symptoms are diffuse headaches, stabbing, jerking, oppressive, often beginning in the forehead region. The patients are listless, lethargic, fatalistic in nature. They shiver badly, are overly susceptible to colds. Warm clothing gives them no relief. You have an increased appetite.
