These people, often babies and children, appear frightened, they toss about and the bedclothes may be thrown off. They may express a fear of dying, or the fears may be unaccountable, with palpitations and tingling sensations throughout the body.
Inflammation may be anywhere. Face red, flushed, swollen; on rising the face becomes deathly pale, or one cheek is red, the other pale. Pulse hard, quick, full. These symptoms come on suddenly, as if out of nowhere and are violent and frightening.
The pains are intolerable, driving the person crazy; they may shriek with the pain. Internal pains are burning, while outer parts may feel numb, enlarged, or they burn, tingle, prickle or crawl. There may be burning thirst with the high, dry fever. The
person feels generally better once perspiration starts.
If restlessness, heat and redness are observed, ask yourself or the person if they have been out in the cold, especially on a windy day, or have recently had a fright of some kind. This remedy has gained laurels in the nursery as well as in disaster situations such as after earthquakes. There may be a desire for cold water or bitter drinks.
Worse: From being out in the cold; midnight; tobacco smoke; light and noise.
Better: Open air; rest.
