A 50-year old man was suffering intense pain from boils on his buttocks. The boils would appear one after another, swell with pus and then burst, but always new lesions appeared. Twice some had to be surgically removed. Initially the patient was given:
#1. CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC21.2 Skin infections...TDS
In a month there was 20% improvement. The number of boils decreased, but the remaining boils caused severe pain. The remedy was changed to:
#2 CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC21.1 Skin tonic + CC21.11 Wounds & Abrasions...TDS
In 2 months there was 50% improvement. The above remedy continued to be given for 6 months until gradually the patient became free of all boils, and could sit and work comfortably. The dosage was then reduced to OD and later was further reduced to 2TW to prevent a recurrence.
Boils are a sign of a septic condition in the body, so it could have been helpful to have also given CC17.2 Cleansing, as well as to have checked the sort of diet the patient was following, or whether there were any poisons in his immediate environment that he was breathing to cause the boils.
