I was confident about Eupatorium perfoliatum 200 because the patient was showing some improvement after the first prescription. His body pain started reducing. During the second visit, his fever was high, but at the same time I didn’t want to change the medicine and I thought of prescribing an intercurrent remedy. My choice was Streptococcinum. In my experience Streptococcinum is an excellent intercurrent remedy in cases of high fever, septicaemia, recurrent boils, etc.
