AESCULUS GLABRA

Aesculus glabra

Aesculus glabra, like the Horse-chestnut, has a marked action on the rectum. It produces hard, knotty stools; very painful. Dark purple hemorrhoidal tumours, with lame back and lower limbs.

Hale gives the indication: “Very painful external tumours, dark purple, with constipation and vertigo; weakness of sacrum and lower limbs.”

At the same time there is fulness and heaviness of the head without pain; the sight may be dim or lost; eyes fixed and expressionless. The speech is thick and the tongue as if lame. In cattle it produces wry-neck and paresis of hind limbs. There is a cough produced by sudden irritation of throat, sensation as of a feather tickling the throat, causing hawking and raising of mucus finally streaked with blood.
