Thios. belongs to the same chemical group as Urea.

The colourless bitter crystals are soluble in water, alcohol, and ether. Thios. has been used externally and internally in cases of lupus, chronic glandular tumours, and for dissolving scar tissue; and internally for resolving tumours of the uterine appendages.

The usual internal dose in old-school practice is 4 to 8 grains once a day given hypodermically in a 15 per cent. solution. C. H. Pennoyer (quoted Pac. C. J. of H. viii. 199) relates this case:

Mrs. C., 69, had been several years ill with gastric distress, sciatica, pains in hips down to knees; SYMPTOMS.

Tinnitus caused by fibrous bands.

Appetite increased.

Stricture of rectum resolved.

    A short story about Thios. Years ago I knew a man who had a party and was very excited, running through the house and having a grand time… until he ran through a double plate glass door, shattering the glass. He ended up with over 500 cuts and gashes over most of his body, primarily on face and head. I told him to buy Thios ointment and he bought a 5 lb container. LOL Used it several times a day and in a year he had no scars on his face.
