Bothrops Lanciolatus (Lachesis Lanciolatus)

or simply Bothrops

(Yellow Viper)

Its venom is most coagulating, (also Lachesis). We should expect to find under these remedies the symptomatology of thrombosis, also thrombotic phenomena, as hemiplegia, aphasia, inability to articulate (Linn J. Boyd).

Broken-down, hemorrhagic constitutions; septic states. Great lassitude and sluggishness; hemorrhages from every orifice of the body; black spots. Hemiplegia with aphasia. Inability to articulate, without any affection of the tongue. Nervous trembling. Pain in right big toe. Diagonal course of symptoms. Pulmonary congestion.

Eyes
Amaurosis; blindness from hemorrhage into retina. Hemoralopia, day blindness, can hardly see her way after sunrise; conjunctivial hemorrhage.

Face
Swollen and puffy. Besotted expression.

Throat
Red, dry, constricted; swallowing difficult, cannot pass liquids.

Stomach
Epigastric distress. Black vomiting. Intense hematemesis. Tympanitis and bloody stools.

Skin
Swollen, livid, cold with hemorrhagic infiltration. Gangrene. Lymphatics swollen. Anthrax. Malignant erysipelas.

Modalities
Worse, right side.

Relationship
Compare: Toxicophis Moccasin Snake (pain and fever recur annually, after bite from this snake, and sometimes change location with disappearance of first symptoms. An unusual dryness of skin follows the bite. Edematous swellings and periodical neuralgia. Pain travels from one part to another). Other snake poisons, notably Lachesis.

Trachinus,-Stingfish (intolerable pains, swelling, acute blood, poisoning, gangrene).
