The crusts vary in form and
character, and the appearance differs as much in animals as many skin diseases
of the same family do in the human.
[Dr. W.P. Wesselhoeft]
"The crust assumed a conical
form; a thick layer of crusts, if allowed to remain without removal, heaped up
one-half 'an inch. They were fragile, moist, yellow, about
the consistency of a honey-comb. When
removed a raw surface remained with deep fissures and thick crusts reformed
into their original size in 48 hours. There was
evidently no itching, but some
soreness after removal of the scabs."
These crusts resemble some forms of
eczema and rupia.
Jenner: the origin of cowpox is
infection of the udders of cows by contact with grass, on which a horse
infected with grease has trodden; while the other historical origin
from a similar source of infection,
also from Jenner, is that it was from the unwashed hands of the stable milkmaids
who milked the cows after grooming the horses infected

confirmed by the clinical experience of many homeopaths, who have successfully
used Malandrinum against infection with smallpox,

cured knock-knee in a child who was
constantly handling his penis. His indications are:
"Lower half of body affected,
greasy skin and greasy eruption. Slow pustulation
never ending, as one heals another appears."
For the bad effects from vaccination:
The late Dr. Fellger, of Philadelphia, probably had a
more extensive experience in treating variola and the
effects of vaccination than
any other man of his time.
He had given much thought-and many
years of study to the subject and came to rely almost wholly upon Malandrinum as a prophylactic for variola,
and as the therapeutic remedy in acute cases.
He used Malandrinum
for confluent small-pox with great success. Where the skin has an unnatural color between the pustules, and small-pox takes on the
it is always serious and dangerous.
When the eyeball becomes congested and red, it enables the physician to prognose danger.
The first to introduce and use Malandrinum. He made the first potencies up to the 30th
from the crusts of the "grease of the horse."
To the observations of Dr. Boskowitz in the use of this remedy, both as a prophylactic
and therapeutic remedy against small-pox and the bad effects of vaccination,
added those of Drs. Raue, Carleton Smith, Wm. Jefferson Guernsey, Selfridge, Wesselhoeft, Burnett and Clarke.
The potencies of Boericke
& Tafel were obtained from Dr. Raue; those of Fincke, Swan and
Smith, of New York, came direct from Dr. Boskowitz.
It is needless to add
that these original preparations were
hand-made, but we believe all are reliable. The remedy had an extensive proving
by W.P. Wesselhoeft, H.C. Allen, Steere,
and students of Hering
College, in 1900 and 1901.

fat, greasy looking pustular eruptions are especially
affected by this remedy. A.L. Marcy, H. R. Vol. XIV, p. 530, relates a singular
experience with Malandrinum 30.
During a small-pox epidemic he
vaccinated himself, taking at the same time Malandrinum
30 night and morning.
The vaccination did not take. It was
twice repeated and still did not take; nor was small-pox contracted. Called to
vaccinate four children in a family whose parents had
small-pox, he vaccinated all and gave
Malandrinum 30 C to three of them at the same time;
the remaining child was the only one whose vaccination "took."
This was so severe that Malandrinum had to be given to modify its intensity, which
it did effectually.
The other three were re-vaccinated
but none "took."
Of five children from 6 – 17 years of
age, only the eldest had been vaccinated, and he had a good scar. All except
the eldest were given Malandrinum, and were
vaccinated and none of the four "took." The eldest took small-pox. Malandrinum was then given, and in a few days he was
convalescent. In another case of small-pox Malandrinum
was given, and the disease only lasted a few days, the eruption drying up.
The only previous attempt at proving
was made by Straube with the 30th potency,
published in the H. R. Vol. XV, p. 145, and the H. W. Vol. XXXV, p. 504. These
symptoms are included.

being used as a prophylactic of variola, cured a

For the bad effects of vaccination
has been used with best results.
Each member, in a family of six, had
been vaccinated; three receiving Malandrinum, and
their arms were only slightly affected by the vaccination and ran a short
a few days; the other three, who did
not receive Malandrinum, were very ill, arms sore for
weeks and required treatment.
Bad effects of vaccination: A lady,
with an ulcer as large as a silver dollar and three-fourths of an inch deep,
which continued to suppurate and would not heal; but under
the curative effect of Malandrinum, recovered promptly.
When used as a prophylactic for variola has proved protective in many cases, and also
prevented vaccination from "taking".
Skin symptoms produced in nearly all
who took Malandrinum as a prophylactic; itching rash
on various parts of body and face, plainly visible under cuticle, with a few
scattered eruptions on surface.
Malandrinum was given to
nearly 600 persons, many of whom had been exposed by personal contact with
various patients, before and after taking the medicine; only one
case of so-called varioloid
occurred, and this may have been a proving of Malandrinum.

Dec. 6, 1905. Took 15 pellets of the
35th potency at 22 h.
Before 11 h. began to feel a creepy
sensation in my skin, particularly in the face, like the crawling of ants over
it, accompanied by itching.
It was red, and I had to resist a
desire to jerk my- fingers and twist my hands; this continued and increased
even after I had taken my warm bath.
Went to bed about twelve very sleepy,
but could not get to sleep because I could not lie still on account of creepy
sensation which spread over my arms, shoulders and upper part of my body, with
of the limbs.
I turned from one side to the other,
but could not be quiet long enough to get to sleep. Accompanying this was a
ringing in my head, as it once had when years ago I had taken quinine, but it
was not of
At 1.30 h. I got up and wrote this.
My lower limbs did not seem to be affected by any of these sensations, but I
kept scratching my arms and face, head and shoulders, and my hands and fingers
restless and nervous. Had no internal
disturbance other than my head. Finally fell asleep at 2.30 h. and slept
soundly until 6 h.
Dec. 7. Awoke with all the symptoms
of the night before gone, but had a sharp headache, and a bad taste in my
mouth. By 7 h. these too were gone, I arose feeling all right.
While I was out walking I was taken
with a severe pain in the back, or, rather, at the left side of the sacrum low
down, with stitching pains in rectum. It lasted about an hour.
At 2 h. began to have a bad headache
over eyes, and with a sense of fullness in my head.
My feet were somewhat swollen when I
put on my boots in the early morning, but by 12 h. after walking (not without
some pain) the swelling left. By half-past three in the afternoon my headache
was entirely gone (it lasted only 11/2 hour), also the sense of fullness in the
head. Have felt perfectly well ever since until Friday morning.

Dec. 9. When I went to bed last
night, after lying down, my head had a sharp pain for perhaps ten minutes. This
morning when I woke I had that disagreeable taste in my mouth, but felt all
right until about 9 h., when I went out, and I did not have any vitality, and
found it hard work to lift my legs. I thought it might come from not taking
coffee (which you have asked me not to do during the proving), as I have done for
so long a time, so I went and had some rolls and omelet
and drank a cup of weak tea,
but did not feel any better.
My movements seemed to be uncertain.
I was afraid of falling, or tripping. It was difficult work getting in and out
of the cars. I had occasion to go up two flights of stairs, very old, narrow
and rickety, and was afraid that I should fall on my way down.
I have had all day, not a headache,
but a feeling that made me scowl, and keep closing my eyes. I felt as if I must
get home as soon as possible.
For two days, several times, I have
been troubled by feeling very hot in the face; never cold. Sometimes when the
face felt burning hot I would perspire on the face and head.
This morning I had a movement of the
bowels, the first since Wednesday, Dec. 6th.
I have been troubled a great deal
with rheuma in my hand, the right one, and thigh and
hip, although the pain was not constant, but since taking the pellets on
Wednesday last, I have not had any pain of this kind
anywhere. I have had a slight
eruption on my cheeks and sometimes a place larger than a dollar would be
burning red and shining on my right cheek at the side of my nose.
Sunday, Dec. 10. No symptoms today
until now, 19 h., both cheeks are burning and have the inflamed shiny look.
Perhaps it is also another symptom that I have been very irritable all day.
Dec. 11. The rheuma
has returned in right hand and hip. After I have been walking a very short
distance, nay legs pain me and get so heavy and my back and hips drag so that I
have to sit down, and when I sit down, all these feelings go away. Two or three
tinges today my right eyelid has kept twitching.
Tuesday, Dec. 12. Twitching in left
eye only. Same trouble in my hips and legs and back, when walking. My stomach
and abdomen have been much swollen for two days.
Wednesday, Dec. 13. Nothing more.
Thursday, Dec. 11. Nothing.
Dec. 17. Took 200 C in solution at 23
h. a tablespoonful of twenty pellets dissolved in four tablespoonfuls of water.
At 12:30 h., my skin began to itch
and my legs were very fidgety, also all my body was very restless. Arms and
shoulders were not affected as before, however, with itching and restlessness.
It seemed to be the lower part of my body this time, although my face felt some
of the irritation, but in a much less degree.
Monday, Dec. 18, 7:30 h. Slept
soundly from 12:30 to 7:30 this morning, with all the symptoms of the night
before one go awaking.
At 16 h. began to have excruciating
pain in my forehead over the left eye, which continued until about midnight.
Once it ran down behind my left ear for a short while.
It left me as suddenly as it came.
Took the last tablespoonful that night. Slept well without disturbance.
Dec. 19. That day was without pain or
other disturbances, except I felt in a state of collapse nearly all day. Had no
strength in my arms or legs, and every little while was obliged to lie down
wherever I happened to be. Would almost fall asleep and my breathing was very
deep and heavy, like puffing. My body felt heavy, and I had difficulty
in lifting my legs and walking.
Frequently low sighs would come. This was all much better by 18 h.
While taking the medicine this time,
I have had no operation of the bowels, and the last day there was more or less
of an eruption on my cheeks and at the side of the nose,
but not the red shiny look I had when
taking the remedy the first time in pills (the 35th).
Each time I took the medicine (the
first time in pellets and this time in solution) I had a slight return of the
breaking out round my waist which I had when afflicted with shingles years ago.
I was not rheumatically affected this time as I
seemed to be when I first took the pills. Ever since I began taking the pills,
from the first day until now,
I have found that when I started out
walking, however well I felt, after a short time I gave out all over, and
especially in my bowels, thighs and legs, also the toes of my left foot, except
the big toe, were affected in a way I never before felt, not like cramp or
gout; and whereas I am always light on my feet and move quickly and easily,
these days it has been hard for me to
get about and I have felt heavy and moved heavily, also a great deal of
headache, a thing unusual for me; also often a shortness
of breath with an inclination to
Dec. 20th, 7 h. Woke with
a bad headache (the bad taste which I had in my mouth when waking while I was
taking the medicine in pellets (35th) I have not had at all this
time). Since December 20th I have had no more symptoms.
Mrs. J. F. C., aged 62; a large well
developed woman, gray hair, former blonde, born in England, and has lived for
twenty years in Munich, Germany.
May 8, 1900. Has always been remarkably
well until eight years ago when an eruption appeared on the upper lip, which
formed a yellowish, honeycombed crust. Portions would crumble off and leave a
moist surface, which again would form a similar crust; occasionally a burning
and, at long intervals, sharp stabbing pains through the upper lip.
Had received all kinds of external
treatments by German specialists, without effect. Once after cautery, it remained absent for six months. Then Dr. Jochner, of Munich, advised surgical interference, which was
not acceded to. On her return to America, further local experiments 'were tried
I could not elicit any symptoms of a
constitutional character. Neither could I establish any connection with
vaccination, or revaccination, as she told me she had never been revaccinated
since childhood, which is a remarkable record for a life in Germany of twenty
The appearance was so unsightly that
she had excluded herself largely from contact with society and was consequently
mentally much depressed and anxious.
From May 8th until
February, 1901, she received at long intervals of at least three weeks single
doses of Sulphur, Ars. and Kali-c. The latter remedy
was given June 20th, 1900, and some improvement was noticed until
February, 1901, during which time she was under placebo, when she reappeared
with the condition as bad as ever.
The character of the eruption
reminding me so strongly in appearance of the "scratches" of horses,
led me to give her one dose of Malandrinum 24m., on
February 5th, 1901.
April 1st. There was on the whole a
decided change in the diameter and elevation of the crust, but still there
existed the sticky moisture under it. Repeated Malandrinum
24m., and placebo, with slight improvement.
On April 27 she received Malandrinum CM, with gradual improvement during May and
July 15. The crust had decreased
one-half, but still moisture underneath it, Malandrinum
October 26th. She reappeared with an
entirely clear lip which has remained so to this date, Dec. 11, 1906.

Dec. 27, 1904. Eruptions first
appeared three years ago on chest and back. Small pimples with intense itching,

For the last two months a different
form of eruption has appeared on face, a very unsightly crust of a light
yellowish gray color, on right side of forehead
extending to the temple and under the hair on that side.
Has used external medicinal
applications more or less for the last three years without benefit. There is
some irritation and itching of the eruption on the forehead, but less intense
than that on the body.
Complains of faint, gone sensations
in stomach without real hunger. This is especially evident since the previous
July, and is not > by eating. All functions normal.

twelfth year. In that year the vaccination "took," followed by a
tedious suppuration at the point of vaccination.

All symptoms remain the same, except the faintness at the stomach disappeared. Malandrinum 24m., one dose dry.
April 15. Eruption on forehead
appears to be less thick, but itching remains intense. Malandrinum

exhausted all over. Has felt so ill that she declines to take more of the

whole year, four years ago.
