AESCULUS HIPPOCASTANUM homeopathic drug picture symptoms from A Primer of Materia Medica by T.F. Allen, of the homeopathy remedy AESCULUS HIPPOCASTANUM

General Action

      Is chiefly associated in our minds with severe haemorrhoidal symptoms. Large purple piles protrude with soreness, a feeling of sticks in the anus; the piles rarely bleed; with this condition we find severe pain in the sacral region and hips aggravated by motion, also soreness and fulness over the liver and gastric disturbances.

The throat symptoms are numerous and point toward a follicular inflammation similar to that commonly associated with gastric and hepatic derangements.

The head is dull, the mind dull and distrait, with general sick feeling.

The backache has led to its successful administration in engorgement of the female organs with leucorrhoea (compare especially Aloes).
