Rhus Venenata

(Poison-elder)

The skin symptoms of this species of Rhus are most severe.

Mind
Great melancholy; no desire to live, gloomy.

Head
Heavy, frontal headache; worse, walking or stooping. Eyes nearly closed with great swelling. Vesicular inflammation of ears. Nose red and shiny. Face swollen.

Tongue
Red at tip. Fissured in middle. Vesicles on under side.

Abdomen
Profuse, watery, white stools in morning, 4 am, with colicky pains; expelled with force. Pain in hypogastrium before every stool.

Extremities
Paralytic drawing in right arm, especially wrist, and extending to fingers.

Skin
Itching; relieved by hot water. Vesicles. Erysipelas; skin dark red. Erythema nodosum, with nightly itching and pains in long bones.
