To read last month’s full case quiz. Visit – The Eyes Have It!
Is anybody here????
Oh look, it’s Sarah Q from Jordan!
Could everyone please just settle down?
The quiz is up! Hurray! How are you Elaine? Happy birthday!
Shh!!! Don’t tell anyone!
So this quiz is really clear.
There is just one rubric that we need and that is:
Eyes; Itching, air, open, amel: PULSATILLA
I’m voting for Pulsatilla!
I am confused though, is that what you gave her at first? If it was why didn’t it take right away? Maybe because she swallowed it rather than letting it melt? Thanks Elaine!
Sarah, I was thinking of giving her Pulsatilla; but, I decided to play it safe and give Euphrasia. Murphy has listed the word ALLERGIES in bold under Euphrasia; which, of course, is Eyebright. I don’t think she was really better outdoors; but, who knows.
Thanks for stopping by–all the way from Jordan! Is anybody else here today?
Hi Elaine and Shana!
Glad to hear Shana won first prize in the Rock ‘n’ Roll trivia contest 😀
Thanks! What else would you expect from someone nick-named Shanapedia!
My vote for this month’s quiz goes for Euphrasia.
It is the first remedy I would think of for seasonal allergies regarding the eyes.
That was my thought too! It was the eyes, and it was allergies; so… Bang! Euphrasia!
If I am wrong I will try again.
You’re not wrong, so don’t try again!
Do we have any other contestants?
Dear quiz masters,
Oh look! It’s the gang from Slovakia!
We are sending our regular unsuccessful contributions to your quiz…:)
Miroslav votes for: Ruta
In rubrics “itching eyes, eye pain”, there are many remedies, the rubric “allergy“ is not mentioned in the Repertory …So I’m forced to resort to my surmises: I would try Ruta, it’s a routine remedy for eyes … I was also thinking about Euphrasia…
Bingo! That was it! It was Euphrasia!
I also thought of Histamine as a routine remedy on itching.
Yes, that might have worked too.
But if I have to choose, I pick Ruta, she has eyes red, hot, painful, itching inner corners …
Actually, we have no information about the corners.
Jitka votes for: Histaminum
It’s a reasonable choice.
I made a chart of Rosemary´s three symptoms mentioned in the her case. The most striking symptom was itching, and according to a chart it should be Pulsatila or Sulfur. But in my opinion, none of them suit this case. So I decided to vote for a more versatile remedy for allergy itching and that’s Histaminum.
It makes total sense.
Hold on, Dr. Sebastiano Di Salvo from Italy is here!
my answer is Pulsatilla (second choice euphrasia)
Actually, you and I were so close, but I reversed them: Euphrasia was my first choice and Pulsatilla my second choice. In Murphy’s Repertory, there are 3 remedies in bold under Eyes, itching: Euphrasia, Pulsatilla and Sulphur. But in Murphy’s MM, “allergies” and “hay fever” are in bold only under Euphrasia.
Hahnemann: IN THE EYES A BURNING AND ITCHING, WHICH COMPELS SCRATCHING AND RUBBING.
True but again, the cause of the symptoms is most important. In Euphrasia, the cause of the itching is more likely to be allergies than in Pulsatilla. Murphy has “allergies” in BOLD in his Materia Medica under Euphrasia.

I want to thank everyone for voting! Especially our big winner…Maria!!!!!
The most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard…..
